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

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

Bottle courtesy of GT. Pours clear, red tinted brown with a light tan head. Lots of hops on the nose - pine, citrus. A bit of honey as well. Flavor is very sweet and peppery. Lots of hops and bitterness. Very heavy finish.

Go big or go home! That appears to be the aim of Bellís "this one goes to 11" ale. Itís super-sacharined with boozy sweetness, and youíll get just some of those cherries and candied tropical fruits too. The problem is, in the arms race of bold beers, this one is too eager to shoot itís big gun and the 11% abv sprays you in the face. The malts do their best to balance things out, and thatís what makes it highly drinkable. But still, itís a rocky ride that Iíd pass on the next time I have the opportunity.

Draft. Pours clear copper/amber with an beige head. Aroma is big caramel/toffee malt, melon/pine/resin/citrus hops. Taste is moderately bitter, melon/pine hops, big caramel malt. Palate is soft, oily, warming, big malt finish. More of a barleywine than a DIPA.

12 oz bottle generously given to me by Scotter. Batch 11,000 bottled on 09/13/12. The pour is a hazed orange copper with a one inch light tan head. The aroma is straw floral hops, with a nice resin and caramel malt presence underneath. Nice, fresh and full nose. The taste is the strong resin hop character right away, harshly bitter, along with a strong caramel malt flavor that turns quickly to a hotly sweet alocohl burn in the finish. The palate is medium bodied, soft carbonation, and the sweetly hot, metallic, slightly oily finish. Thanks for this one Scott, I had wanted to try 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.

(Not a hop lover) 12oz to snifter. 2 month old bottle. I cannot discern hop aromas, but it is very much all hops in the aroma. it is a beautiful deep copper color. The flavor is much like a malty red ale, but with a hop kick in the pants. I actually enjoyed this.
