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."

Bottle. Pours copper with a thin white head. Big pine/citrus hop aroma with a touch of caramel sweetness. Moderately sweet malt flavor up front followed by a great pine and citrus hop profile. Nice bitter hop finish with a touch of alcohol. Very drinkable, the alcohol is well hidden.

This beer is awesome. Clear ruby red in color with a whispy kakki head that lingers to the end. Deep cherry in the aroma, grape, passion fruit, caramel. Medium-bodied, lightly carbonated with a lingering finish. Starts out malty and sweet, but not cloying. Balanced well with an assertive, but soft bitterness. Fantastic brew. A real treat.

12 oz bottle at Ashleyís Ann Arbor. Amber pour with an off-white head. Sweet hoppy floral, pine, lemon, and orange in the aroma. Sticky sweet grapefruit, orange, pine, and floral flavors as well. Quite intense, fresh, and sweet. Really nice stuff.

badgerben (4479) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JAN 16, 2013
Courtesy of Skyview. Copper color with a small head. Strong orange and citrus aroma with a bit of lemon. Very strong bitterness. Light caramel and citrus flavor, but just a juicy hop character.

No idea how this is rated so low. I think it is basically Hopslam with a tad more bite. Savoring my last few bottles.

Clear, dark reddish amber. Medium creamy white head, lasting, full lace. Aroma is big, sweet, fruity, citrus, peach, tropical. Medium to full body. Smooth full hop, not dry or super bitter. Creamy. Hop candy. Clean and so drinkable. ABV dangerously undetectable. Deliciousness.

A: Dark Amber Hue, Passes Some Light, White Head, Decent Lacing S: Molasses, Sweet Bready Malts, Citrus T: Cherries, Pineapple, Sweet Bready Malts, Piney M: Decent Carbonation, Medium Bodied, Mildly Sweet, Mildly Drying Overall, pretty solid for the style and you dont get the booziness at all with a beer of 11% ABV, that pretty impressive on its own.

jtw (1101) - farmington, Michigan, USA - OCT 10, 2012
intense copper liquid with a good amount of carbonation and beige head. spicy and peppery hops aroma with some alcohol heat, and a bit of lingering sweetness behind the hops smells. full-bodied with lots of hops complexity: spice (black and chili pepper, coriander, cardamom) and citrus, resiny and piney as well. very nice beer, and while i canít rate it to 11, it easily gets to 9. Iíll have to keep a few bottles around for a few years...

Pours a deep copper color from the bottle with frothy off-white head and great lacing. The commercial description gives you good notes for the aroma and taste. Overall, this beer is fantastic, and you canít even tell itís that alcoholic. I want a whole lot more, but it may be hard to find.

mteehead (9) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 1, 2012 does not count
Bottle pours a dark copper color. Even a novice like me can pick out the pine and citrus aroma. The alcohol is present but masked slightly by the hop aroma and calmed by the malt.... but itís definitely there. After a few big sips of this one, Iím glad I have 11 more bottles of it!
