COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Eleven is made with a single variety of hops, Phoenix, from the UK. Phoenix was developed at Wye College to be a high alpha acid (bitterness) hops with a British flavor profile. Phoenix is also low in cohumulone and high in aromatic oils, so you can throw a ton of ’em in and the beer will stay smooth and aromatic. This beer has 109 IBUs in it! The taste profile is incredibly balanced and dangerously drinkable for an 11.7% brew. But don’t look for that grapefruity-piny taste you get from US hops (not that there’s anything wrong with that), these buds are fruity and earthy with an almost berry-like aroma, to give this beer a unique taste among big IPAs. Bitterness we got! And malt to back it up, with the result being a very intriguing beer you’ll just want to sip all night thanks to Phoenix hops. Cheers!

Bottle @ fonefan tasting. Hazy reddish amber with a white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, caramel, oxidized and moderate hoppy. Flavor is quite sweet and very bitter. Dry and very bitter finish. 160213

Had this for a long time. Very hazy amber, thinner head but leaves some lacing. Bigger malty nose but not overpowering, hints of citrus and some pine. Flavor is prompt and potent. Hop bite from the get-go, obvious malt profile and green hop flavor. Big and large, not the most clean and distinct tasting. I guess the cloudy appearance is somewhat representative of the over all flavor. Perhaps this could have come across a bit better had I handled it better over the last few years.

Cloudy amber brown beer, thick off white head. Soft airy palate. Deep rich hops with a bitterish edge. Malt is smoth - almost creamy. Soft dry finish with more rich hops and a touch of caramel. Obviously a strong beer but the alcohol doesn’t interfere.

I know that this is probably past it’s prime, but I just got this 12oz bottle as an extra in a trade, so here we go. Pours a murky brown orange with a thin tan head that leaves a thin even blanket of lace. The nose is pretty earthy and fruity, it kind of reminds me of a Spanish apple cider that I have tasted. There is still a solid amount of caramel malt, but everything is pretty muted due to the age of this one. The flavor has that same earthy apple along with the malty sweetness and a good amount of bitterness on the back of the palate. I also get a good amount of oxidative nuttiness. The body is thick and full with light carbonation and a long super bitter finish. Although I do think it is past it’s prime, this beer is an interesting adventure, and it is easy to tell that they are using a hop that is not common. The alcohol is also masked very well.

Old rate. Pours hazy amber with a large beige head. Aroma of citrus, hops, fruit, and caramel. The flavour is sweet up-front, smooth alcohol presence, citrus, fruit, caramel, with a well balanced hoppy finish.

Deep amber color. Hops in the aroma. This is, without a doubt, one hell of an IPA. Absolutely wonderful.

bottle, pours hazy redish brown with a medium creamy off white head. Aroma is strong pear and sweet citrus hops. This is a big beer. The few years have really mellowed this into almost an English barley wine in nature. Super sweet biscuit malt flavors with some pine and light hops in the finish with lots of alcohol. Really glad I got to try this, although I know what I’m getting is not what this bottle once was.....it’s still good.

Draft at belgian cafe in philly, pa. Pours a cloudy amber body with small off white head. Aroma of sweet malt, citrus and pine hop. The flavor is mostly tamed bitterness, but nice pine finish and aftertaste
