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."

12oz bottle. thanks to chris for handing these out like i was trickortreatin... pours darker than what i would have expected with a deeper amber slightly coppery feel, mostly transparent, and topped with a quickly retreating soapy white head... aroma isn’t all that assertive, bready rye like malts to go along with a semi-assertive but almost generic like tropical fruit hop. somewhat sweet. doesn’t pop like some of the hoppy brews of late... flavors are more of the same with a fairly substantial darker bready malt profile with a bigger hop profile, albeit not too bright or distinguished. a little tropical fruit, a bit phenolic, a bit bitter in the finish. sweeter through the middle. it just doesn’t come together all that well or all that cleanly. bigger bodied and somewhat strengthy overall. one and done for me on this one.

Bottle thanks to wnoble. Clear amber pour with a nice sticky beige head. This beer is dominated by caramel malt, sweet sugars, toffee, and finishes with bitter hops. Slightly metallic. It’s decent, but I’m not a fan of this much caramel sweetness. The abv is well hidden. It’s not a DIPA, should be either ASA or barleywine.

Bottle. Orange malt and light citrus peel aroma. Amber with small head. Very sweet orange and strongly bitter orange peel flavor. Sweet and hoppy.

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

12oz bottle to glass; rec’d in trade from umich03jm. Good beer; just not my style. big pine and grapefruit in aroma. very nice caramel/amber pour. Taste is pine/grapefruit with hops at end and lingering - balanced but too much hops for me (and I hate grapefruit); Thanks for the trade, Jason!!

jcr (2424) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - MAY 4, 2013
Bottle. Hazy amber body. Frothy off-white head. Aroma of paint, raw grain, alcohol, pine, floral hops. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/sticky body, moderate carbonation. Lingering bitterness in the finish along with hot, peppery alcohol. Resiny, pine tar astringency.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5768) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 26, 2013
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark orange-caramel color with a small foamy orange-tan head that faded and left no lacing. The aroma was orange, grapefruit, peach and yeast. The flavor was bitter pine, orange, a fairly boozy presence and faint notes of caramel and bread. Medium length bitter pine and orange finish. Medium body. Booziness increases the more you drink. Ok.

"This imperial red was 3 mo old but tasted and smelled older. Too bad, cause the malts used were really nice, with a Carmely fruity nutty sweetness. There were some citrus hops and bitterness left but they were obviously faded. Fresh, I think this may be in Oskar blues territory, but has a short shelf life I guess..."

Reddish color and off white head. Prevalent hop aroma but didn’t get much of a sweet smell. Slightly sweet flavor but mostly the bitterness of the hops from start to finish. Not a huge fans of red ales but this was decent.
