COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 Bellís signature house ale yeast, This One Goes to 11 Ale finishes with a lingering warmth."

Definitely a sweet beer here. Hops are the main ingredient. Iím enjoying this as a sipper. Couldnít handle more than one of these. Good for what it is.

thome50 (1186) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - OCT 9, 2012
Bottle thanks to Mark. Pours an amber to dark golden color with mid-range tan head. Aroma is lacking to say put it nicely, overly malty, grain, faded DIPA to say it harshly. Taste is at first a way over the hill DIPA, then fades into an overly bitter hop profile with some resin hop built up. Malt again comes back and finally you are left with a ton of heat. Not sure what the hell style this is but it is all over the place and certainly not a traditional DIPA.

574deadzone (1160) - North Central, Indiana, USA - OCT 12, 2012
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.

intense copper liquid with a good amount of carbonation and beige head. spicy and peppery hops aroma with some alcohol heat, and a bit of lingering sweetness behind the hops smells. full-bodied with lots of hops complexity: spice (black and chili pepper, coriander, cardamom) and citrus, resiny and piney as well. very nice beer, and while i canít rate it to 11, it easily gets to 9. Iíll have to keep a few bottles around for a few years...

timfoolery (1124) - California, USA - DEC 1, 2012
Bottle from a recent trade (with Rayl I believe). Let me start by saying this is likely the best imperial red I've ever had. Bells just keeps coming with winners. This one has an excellent malt backbone with the Galaxy and Simcoe hops taking the front seat. Stellar palate to keep the multitude of hop varieties in check. Love it! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

demitriustown (1112) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - OCT 14, 2012
12 oz bottle: Aroma is smells awesome like another hopslam. Appearance is clear reddish/amber color with a thick off white head that lingers. Taste is fruity hoppy goodness with maybe a hint of caramel in the backing. Palate is medium carbonation in the mouth with an aftertaste of linger hop characteristics. If youíre a hop fan this is a beer for you. Cheers!

ICEatALAMO (1087) - Troy, Michigan, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Bottle. Pours a bright amber color. The aroma is mostly hops. The taste is rather mild compared to the aroma. A nice subtle hoppiness that finishes clean. Donít get much of the base red ale that is suppose to be there which is fine with me. This one is better than I was expecting for sure.

Bottle pour. Just like Spinal Tap would like it - this one does indeed bring the hops with the booze.

12oz bottle to glass; recíd in trade from umich03jm. Good beer; just not my style. big pine and grapefruit in aroma. very nice caramel/amber pour. Taste is pine/grapefruit with hops at end and lingering - balanced but too much hops for me (and I hate grapefruit); Thanks for the trade, Jason!!
