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."

Had on draft at green well pub in GR. Pours a nice clear amber, medium head. Aroma is big hoppy citrus with fruit and alcohol. Wonderful. Flavor is hop up front with fruit and malt later. Big beer, big mouthfeel. Aftertaste is alcohol and hop bitterness. Great beer.

Absolutely incredible. Best beer as of yet. Perfect color of light ruby red and about 1 finger of head from the tap. Aroma was the perfect DIPA of pineapple and grapefruit with just a hint of caramel malt. Taste was everything blended perfectly from the aroma. Hop presance was perfect. Very smooth and not one hint of the 11% was detected. Let it warm up a little and it will be even better!

Draft at Jerryís. Orange-amber with big, creamy, beige head / Rich nose of caramel, cut pine, weed, and citrus / Medium to full body, lush and creamy, sweet, big malts make this only moderately biting with beautiful balance, and lightly bitter finish / Flavors of caramel, cut pine, orange, grapefruit / Just great, with a superb body.

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.

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a lightly cloudy dark amber with a light red hue. Aroma of citrus and pine hops with a good bit of caramel and toffee. Taste is heavily bitter and medium sweet. Loads of pine and grapefruit wiht a heavy dose of caramel. Full bodied with a thick and sticky texture. Lively carbonation and a long long finish. Overall, awesome! Ill srink this any and every day.

Bottle - fair size thick head, very nice deep amber color, big but balanced aroma and flavor - great citrus (and a mild pine) hops with sweet, caramel malt balance - excellent overall beer, plus a great name!

Had this at the 2013 World Expo of Beer and this was my personal "Best of Show." A huge and richly complex brew of a beautiful orange color, Bellís knocked this one out of the park. Iíll be looking for more of this in bottles. Awesome.

This beer is an imperial amber to commemorate Bellís 11,000th batch with the name being a reference to the movie Spinal Tap.Good looking imperial amber. The nose is big and complex. Plenty of sweet malt, some cherry, a slight oakiness, some onion (Warrior hops?), and a touch of alcohol. The flavors too, big and malty. Flavors are sweet and slightly fruity, again with the sweet cherry character. As you continue to drink the hoppiness increases and the alcohol presence lessens, increasingly drinkability. Overall I thought this was a really nice imperial amber.

Amber color, big off white head. Huge floral and tropical aroma. Flavor is sweet with big tropical hop flavor, really nice. Body is a bit thick, good carbonation. Bells hit the jackpot with this one, really nice beer.
