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 Bell’s signature house ale yeast, This One Goes to 11 Ale finishes with a lingering warmth."

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

Pours a dark murky orange. Notes of caramel and grapefruit. A little past it’s prime. Citrus and notes of alcohol. Could easily be mistaken for a barely wine.

Strong scent of grapefruit, strong taste which is slightly disappointing from the good smell, too bitter :-(

Sold on a single bottle allocation at Green’s. Poured a clear amber with a nice white head. Fresh resiny hop aroma, lots of caramel, toasted malt, light citrus and some heat. Flavors were slightly bitter with notes of toasted caramel, resiny hops, citrus and cake. Mouthfeel was medium to full. Actually well balanced for being so big, warming, bitter finish. Long lasting. Not too shabby, like a big hoppy barley wine. I dug it.

Thanks for sharing, bro! Pours a dirty red color with a thin off-white head. Aroma is medicinal, caramel malts, resinous hops. Taste is like a barley wine.....medicinal, chewy caramel and toffee malts.

Bottle to glass. Sweet label. Pours a slight hazy amber color with a light tan head. Aroma is a very pleasant hop wallop, with floral fruity aromas. Nice malty balance in the flavor. A very nice beer indeed.

Bottle from Tim, thanks man! Appearance is reddish brown with a nice amount of head. Aroma is pine, brown sugar, and sweet caramel malts. Taste is brown sugar, pine, with a hoppy bitter sweet finish. Medium mouthfeel, nice carb. Solid strong ale, malty and big but without the alcohol burn.
