Per bellsbeer.com/blog , "This One Goes to 11 Ale opens with bright, juicy aromas such as tropical fruits & ripe cherries, largely derived from massive kettle & dry-hop additions of Southern Hemisphere hop varieties such as Galaxy, Motueka, and Summer. The citrus & resinous pine notes of the Pacific Northwest hop family are also well represented, making their presence known through Simcoe, Citra, and the newly released Mosaic varietal, just to name a few. A wide range of specialty malts anchor the hops to this IMPERIAL RED ALE, contrasting the assertive bitterness & juicy aromatics with a robust, toasty depth of flavor. Fermented with Bell’s signature house ale yeast, This One Goes to 11 Ale finishes with a lingering warmth."

Bottle from Sean - thanks! Slightly murky brown/orange pour with a nice froth of tan foam. Aroma is sweet malt and caramel with sharp pine and complimentary bitterness. Taste is a nice balance of heavy, sweet malt with caramel and toffee notes followed by some light toasted malt and char with resinous pine and bitterness. Lingering bitterness on each sip and a clean drinker for the double digit ABV. Sure, it’s a fairly common high ABV strong ale with pine and bitterness but Bells does it as good or better than anyone else. Great beer.

Bottle; Pour is clear ruby brown with a modest off white head in this glass, quickly rimming the glass and creating a certain haze here - there is some modest lacing present as well. The nose is quite nice here ; its fruity, piney, resinous hops in big abundance - with some caramel and cherry notes present. I found it to be more impressive than expected, honestly. The flavor profile reveals the tropical fruit initial, with less bitterness than expected ; moving to the pine, grass, caramel, toffee, sweet bread, light cherry, while presenting a modest booze note - It has a really nice marriage of Malt, Hop, and ABV, combined with a prickly carbonation - It’s not as well done as some California "Red" Ales I’ve had - but its still a quality attempt

kbutler1 (1377) - North Carolina, USA - OCT 13, 2012
Bottle. Pours a darker copper color with a light tan head. Nice lacing and head retention. Danky, fruit citrus notes in the nose. Medium mouthfeel. Sweet fruit like start with a medium level of bitterness. Citrus rind. Mild alcohol note in the back end but given the 11% abv, that’s somewhat expected. Pretty smooth and balanced. Like. As the beer warms, notes of pineapple and apricot come out. Still Like.

12 oz bottle shared with Jason and Brian. The pour is a brighter reddish brown with a nice collar of head and no lace. The aroma surprisingly hoppy. There is a good malt and a light sweetness that is well received. There is a decent pine and a good bitterness on the back. The flavor is good as well. There is a strong maltiness. Nice bitter hops and a lingering piney resin. The mouth feel is thicker and well carbonated with a good lingering malty finish. It's a legit brew here. Obviously the freshest of the group ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle at Ashley’s Ann Arbor. Amber pour with an off-white head. Sweet hoppy floral, pine, lemon, and orange in the aroma. Sticky sweet grapefruit, orange, pine, and floral flavors as well. Quite intense, fresh, and sweet. Really nice stuff.

Onslow (1301) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - OCT 6, 2012
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Clear red brew with dense frothy head that sticks to the side of the glass. Aroma of pine, citrus, and resinous hops, a bit of earth and flowers - very IPA in character but more intense and complex. Taste is sweet malts at the start, very hop forward with a barrage of bitter of every strip. Lingering deep bitter finish with warm alcohol burn. A little boozey as it gets warm. Intense and good but kinda overdone - it’s hard to come away with a feel for what this is other than complex. But I will most certainly enjoy this while it is around.

On tap at 7 Monks. Deep amber/ruby pour with a thick toffee cap that left behind some intricate sticky lacing. Nose initially quite sweet with caramel and candy notes followed by a big dose of piney and fruity hops. Taste is very, very sweet and also hugely bitter. Heavier side of medium bodied, oily, sticky, with an active carbonation and a lengthy finish. A nice, huge beer fitting of the occasion and the name.
