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. Pours an amber body with a yellow off white head. This was not fresh when i had it and the hops dropped out a bit a bit grassy earth y herbal and soapy. A mineral earth warming with some caramel and faint citrus notes. Still a modest warming with a mild malt bill. Decent.

Nose is full of cardboard, cider. Murky orange pour, no head, lace. Cardboard, newspaper, candy orange. Ligering paper. Dry and old. Would be way better not aged. Still hoppy and a little bitter but its aged and cardboarded. Yeah it is what it is hoes.

Pours a very hazy dark amber color with golden caramel brown hues when held to a light source and a very thin fizzy off-white head that quickly dissipates. Very malty and leathery aroma with only some subtle hops and lots of sweet alcohol. Smells more like an english barleywine. The flavor again is reminiscent of an English barleywine with a strong earthy leathery malt character and lots ond sweet boozy alcohol heat. The hops are very faint and only slightly bitter. Alcohol warmth in the finish. Very disappointing.

12oz bottle courtesy of sholland119 poured into a tulip. Pours a murky orangish brown with a tons of floaties that settles toward the bottle. There is a big creamy off-white head that leaves very good lacing. The aroma has some malts and a ton of green apple tartness with only a hint of hops. The taste has a toffee and caramel malt sweetness with a strong citrus-like hoppiness that seems to be melding into a cardboard type taste that’s not all that pleasant. There is a tartness in the finish and a ton of alcohol, which really burns in the finish. The mouthfeel is exceptionally smooth and slick with a soft carbonation. This one is clearly well past its prime and the hops have soured and turned into a tinny, cardboard flavor that really limits the drinkability. Going downhill fast.

Hazy gold pour. Fluffy white head. Interesting aroma. Lots of hops, caramel and a bit of a yeasty funk. Flavor is dry and hoppy with some wet wood and bit of fruit. Good stuff!

From the Bottle at Tom’s Ultimate Glasgow Tasting, Blackfriars 01/12/2007 Strong hop aroma. Golden coloured and slightly hazy in appearance. Hoppy with a crisp and bitter lasting finish.

12 oz bottle served in a tulip glass. Pour is a very murky brown, like a flowing river after a thunderstorm, with enough floaties to make the comparison quite accurate. Nose is caramel, toffee, earth, and very faint hops. I’ve never drank an aged IPA (3 years old) but I am guessing the lack of hop in the aroma means it is past its prime. Taste is hop bitter, but not much of the other interesting varieties that usually accompany the hop, earth, caramel, and mellowed booze. This is a pretty tasty brew. It’s a shame I cannot try a fresh bottle to enjoy it at its best.

Bottle from Capones Pours a cloudy light brown with a light tan head has some floaters and particles in it. The head leaves quickly. Has a good aroma of sweet malts and good crisp hops. Has a good carbonation. The mouthfeel is decent. The flavor is balance well. Not real hoppy but not too sweet. The alcohol is well hidden. Has a full body. The finish is good and it has a lasting aftertaste. It is good but definately strong.

12oz bonus from adrian910ss. Thanks a lot for this one man! Pours a swampy reddish brown color with a big beige head that left a ton of lacing. Nose was bursting with pineapple then gave way to sweet caramel and toffee. Flavor held strong hop bitterness balanced with a wall of sweet malts. A very underrated brew in my opinion.
