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!

12 fl oz bottle, courtesy of Ungstrup. Pours hazy orange with a slowly diminishing white head. Dry wooden, vague oxidised aroma. Dark caramel malty note. Sweet malty, dense hoppy and slight wooden flavour following this. Smooth mix between sweet caramelish malt and bitter hoppy finish. Nice one.

Ungstrup (29287) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 16, 2006
An orange beer with a huge orange head. The aroma is sweet and very grassy, but also with a spicy note, that reminds me of Belgian beers. The flavor is very powerful, and very hoppy - like a strong hop soup, with a slight touch of oranges, and with a very bitter end. Good for hopheads.

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.

fiulijn (14551) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 23, 2007
Beautiful clean amber color; creamy head. Nice aroma, cheesy, malty and hoppy, with some pine resin; also some alcohol. Powerful body strength, immediately warming (but without unwanted traces of alcohol), full malty, with sweet caramel flavor, toffee, extreme hopping, very resiny; the only flaw is a kind of paper aftertaste. In the final, there is also a touch of pear syrup. Excellent.

Bottle @ fonefan tasting. Nice head with good duration. Color is amber. Aroma and taste unfortunately are oxidated and hardly any hops left in the nose. Finish is long and bitter though with some alcohol as well.
