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 tasted at Oxford Tasting Nov 2012. Pours a deep red, with a nice sticky head. Big hop grapefruit aroma. Caramel and citrus hop flavors play nice together, bitterness up front, finishes long with a thick mouthfeel,. Should age nicely.

Bottle. Pours a murky deep copper with think tan head that quickly dissipates and some solid lacing. Notes of sweet caramel, burnt toffee, vanilla, citrus, pine, nail polish remover, grain alcohol. Too boozy and slightly astringent for my taste.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 23, 2013
On tap at Sam’s, Durham, at a recent takeover. Surprisingly light and elegant when sipped alongside the goliath BA 9000, this brew had a massive, bright fruitiness to it that is often obscured in the face-shredding ASA category. Certainly as a red there were substantial sweet malts in there, but the tropical notes and occasional bitter ones were more assertive, to the beer’s benefit. Enjoyed it.

3.9
jjgmd (2163) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - MAR 22, 2013
Pours an orange red color with a nice creamy tan head. Nose is heavy fruit with some spice and pleasant hoppiness, with the sweetness of raisins and currants. Sweet hoppy taste with heavy fruit and strong complex malts. Taste is lingering fruit, alcohol, and spice. It’s Bells and it’s good. Quaff Score 8 / 10

4.1
zgaier (1951) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - MAR 22, 2013
Pours an orange red with a small beige head and sweet aroma of citrus, raisins, and alcohol. Taste is sweet, of hops, citrus, pine, toasted malt, fruits, and caramel notes with a long, nice finish. A lot of complex, good flavors, well balanced brew.
