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 Bell’s signature house ale yeast, This One Goes to 11 Ale finishes with a lingering warmth."

pours amber red with small off white head. Aroma is sweet bready malt with lots of hops. Taste similar with a nice balance of sweet malt and hops, a bit syrupy on the mouthfeel. Really good beer

Draft at mad mex Monroeville. Pours orange with a thin white head that leaves a bit of lacing. Slight citrus note on the nose. Definitely hides its 11% well. A bit of hop flavor on the tongue. Finishes clean. I was kind of bored with this one.

12 oz. bottle. Deep, amber pour with a with a small white crust of a head. Aroma of bright tropical hops, mild pine and grapefruit hops. Apparent maraschino cherries and and caramel. Flavor is bitter, with apparent sweet toasted malt. Mild cherry and molasses. The malt character is a bit too present for my liking making it more balanced than a hop bomb. Nice, I wish it were a bit dryer though. Big mouthfeel, finish is lingering.

12 oz bottle generously given to me by Scotter. Batch 11,000 bottled on 09/13/12. The pour is a hazed orange copper with a one inch light tan head. The aroma is straw floral hops, with a nice resin and caramel malt presence underneath. Nice, fresh and full nose. The taste is the strong resin hop character right away, harshly bitter, along with a strong caramel malt flavor that turns quickly to a hotly sweet alocohl burn in the finish. The palate is medium bodied, soft carbonation, and the sweetly hot, metallic, slightly oily finish. Thanks for this one Scott, I had wanted to try it.

12 oz thanks to MrBunn. Thanks for coming through in the clutch! Pours a rich, deep ruby brown, with a thick almost glommy white head that glops a little before fading off. Nose is so strong of pine resin and grapefruit hints it makes me want to slap my momma. Taste is so full and sweet, yet appropriately light and lemony somehow, it’s inexplicably the lightest heavy beer I’ve ever tried! This is straight f’d up, yo. Amazing shit. Clean, super well disguised ABV. Is there mint or something in this hiding the alcohol? Otherwise this shouldn’t be possible. Wins my dog licking his own balls award...

Amber color beer out of the bottle with a sticky beige head. Big sweet nose of hop resin and candy apples. Sticky sweet mouthfeel that is just chuck full of hoppy goodness. Flavors of pine, candied orange peel, toffee and a noticable alcohol burn. Hot on the tongue. There is a long hop Jolly Rancher finish that makes me want to lick my lips frequently. It gets a little boozy as it warms, but I was getting a little drunk as it warms so it was okay. I really liked this sticky mess.

They needed to not fuck up the distro on this. It is a good beer a few months old. Like a red version of oracle in some ways. But I wanted it fresh.

Deep amber pour with a small white head. Aroma is sweet caramel maltiness, toasted bread, and citrusy hops. Chewy caramel and toast on the front fading into resin citrus juiciness. Medium thick body, warming alcohol and a long bitter finish.

jbruner (4734) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - OCT 28, 2012
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 can’t even tell it’s that alcoholic. I want a whole lot more, but it may be hard to find.
