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."

pours amber red with small off white head. Aroma is sweet bready malt with lots of hops. Taste similar with a nice balance of sweet malt and hops, a bit syrupy on the mouthfeel. Really good beer

Poured into snifter, a dark amber with one finger beige head a decent amount of lacing with some alcohol legs. Up front the aroma is citrus hops im getting strong grapefruit and also some pine followed by a sugary sweetness. The taste is very well balanced a very nice hop profile im picking up mostly those piney hops and some honey type sweetness towards the middle of the tongue and the back end is slightly bitter. The alcohol is noticeable but very mellow and fits in perfectly. Very nice sipper here.

I got this beer from my local liquor store after it was sold out... This beer was a gift from one of the people who bought the last six. Payís to be friendly. This beer is everything itís hyped up to be.. The flavors are so well balanced yet distinct. Sweat, malt, gravy, pine, chestnut, citrus, desalinated axle grease, bread, fireworks, bacon and a pony. Well, thatís what it tasted like to me.

Cherries, roasted malts, and decent amount of hops on the aroma and palate. Coming in at 11%, this is nicely balanced!

UPDATED: OCT 19, 2012 Wow. Was I surprised. This is so much better than I expected. More of a DIPA than a red with the citrusy hops that provide a great grapefruit aroma. Well done, Bellís.

Interesting beer; smells like a DIPA(and it is hoppy)but doesn't have the bite of hops you'd expect. It has a nice boozy warmth at the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottled 9/13/12. Appearance: copper and red but fairly clear with a big yellowish khaki head that dissipates quickly. Aroma: big caramel and toasted malts, and piney, resinous and citrusy hops with alcohol deeper in the smell. Taste: a sweet maltiness that is actually very well balanced with the high hop profile, bitter and slightly sweet finish with just a tad of the alcohol coming in but definitely not as hot as many 11% beers. Mouthfeel: thin to medium texture with a relatively low carbonation. Overall: I really think this is a pretty awesome high ABV brew. They did a really great job of countering the big malt and alcohol sweetness with multi-style hopping. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours an amber color, pine citrus and hops hit me all at once. Good beer overall

This one reminds me of Kuhnhenn DRIPA, though less IPA-ey and more malty, red ale-ey. But similar piney, resiny, grapefruitey aroma and flavor. I find this beer to be a little more balanced but a little less intense. Itís still intense, mind you. Also, this beer packs a wallop at its titular 11% abv, which isnít noticeable in the flavor. The intense flavors make it a sipper, thankfully, or else Iíd be on the floor right quick.

It smells awesome, burning the nose into anticipation of the bitterness to come, plus a variety of other citrus and floral aromas. Definitely intense, and at first thought maybe the aroma was a trade but actually very flavorful - more as time passes. A keeper. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
