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."

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.

12oz bottle from Capones. Dark amber with an off white head. Reminds me of an old ale but slightly mellower with a red/amber tinge - lots of malts, old resin hops, boozy, some pit fruit and cherries lend an odd base to this, mild carbonation and moderate+ body, fruit, quite a bit on the finish that warms you up at the end. Interesting. And a last thought - pineapple of all things!

UPDATED: OCT 28, 2012 Before I go in to this- This is more drinkable than the ruination 10th anniversary but along the same lines. Red. head is moderate and fading. Nose is citrus, ripe sweet fruits, resins, cooked pineapple, sweet malt. Flavor is again sweet resinous hop oils with sticky sweet malts, caramelized pineapples, cooked peaches with some grapefruit runs thrown in. Sweet malt flavor but finishes with a balance of sweetness and bitterness. Not as bad as the hate is giving it but its another ridiculous sweet IIPA. edit: had another one last night and it just doesnít do it for me-so sweet

On draft at beer run. Pours a clear amber copper with fair offwhite head. Nose is incredible citrus pineapple hop and slight alcohol fuseul burn. Flavor is intense blend of citrus hops, rubbing alcohol, and slight caramel notes. Not all that pleasant to drink. But pretty unique.
