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."

Bottle share at Kenny’s 20K. Thanks! As ’Bells This One Goes to 11’, 2012 vintage. Hazy dark orange, opaque, small foamy white head, dotted lacing. Aroma is sherbet, orange, some lime and boiled sweets. Very nice. Body is medium, smooth, soft carbonation. Taste is tangy fruits, lime, cherry, twig, boiled sweets. A very tasty fruity number. Good.

Bottle at Madmitch 20k tasting. Hazy amber. Lasting white head. Hoppy aroma. Like a hoppy barley wine aroma. Rather a good sweet beer. Good hop. Good enough.

12 oz bottle shared with Jason and Brian. The pour is a brighter reddish brown with a nice collar of head and no lace. The aroma surprisingly hoppy. There is a good malt and a light sweetness that is well received. There is a decent pine and a good bitterness on the back. The flavor is good as well. There is a strong maltiness. Nice bitter hops and a lingering piney resin. The mouth feel is thicker and well carbonated with a good lingering malty finish. It's a legit brew here. Obviously the freshest of the group ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Tim, thanks man! Appearance is reddish brown with a nice amount of head. Aroma is pine, brown sugar, and sweet caramel malts. Taste is brown sugar, pine, with a hoppy bitter sweet finish. Medium mouthfeel, nice carb. Solid strong ale, malty and big but without the alcohol burn.

Poured an amber red with aromas of booze and tropical fruit. Flavors are malt, fruit, cherries, booze and some light caramel. Solid and enjoyable 11% is there but not as hot as I expected.

Bottle to glass. Sweet label. Pours a slight hazy amber color with a light tan head. Aroma is a very pleasant hop wallop, with floral fruity aromas. Nice malty balance in the flavor. A very nice beer indeed.

Bottle @ home. A bit opaque medium red color, medium to full sized white to off-white head that lasts for a decent while. Aroma is malts, some sweetness, some resinous - piney soft sweet - bitter. Medium body and carbonation.

wedgie9 (2702) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 15, 2015
From notes. Tasted in December 2012 from a capped 12oz bottle. Pours orange amber with a thick beige head that slowly recedes to fairly thick lace. The nose is quite malty with plenty of earthy and floral hops. The flavor is the same, super malty and very hoppy. The body is full and sticky with average carbonation and a long malty and hoppy finish.

"This imperial red was 3 mo old but tasted and smelled older. Too bad, cause the malts used were really nice, with a Carmely fruity nutty sweetness. There were some citrus hops and bitterness left but they were obviously faded. Fresh, I think this may be in Oskar blues territory, but has a short shelf life I guess..."
