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."

That’ll be me 20K then @ ChrisO’s. Hazy amber beer, small cream colour head. Palate is airy, semi dry and has decent fine carbonation. Tangy caramel malts. Spicy dried fruit. Caramelly dry finish. Spicy aniseed linger. Nice.

Leighton (22021) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2016
Bottle shared at Kenny’s 20k tasting - London. Cheers, Ken! Pours clear amber with a creamy, white head. The nose holds pine, berries and orange peel. Medium sweet flavour with some earthy bitterness, orange rind, grains. Medium to full bodied with average carbonation. Hard piney and earthy bitterness to finish, with more old and rindy citrus fruits. Eh, just so so.

Bottle shared at Kenny’s 20K, thanks to King Kenny, 15/01/16. Hazed orange amber topped with a decent beige covering. Nose is tangy citric rinds, spice, caramel, fruit cake, bitter orange marmalade. Taste comprises fruit loaf, dates, toffee, spice, light floral notes, orange pith. Medium + bodied, fine carbonation, light boosty close. Decent stronge, kind of a DIPA x-over, well balanced.

harrisoni (19159) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2016
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.

mcberko (18557) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 21, 2012
12 oz. bottle, sent from khoffman43 (thanks a lot, Kyle), pours a dark amber with a small beige head. Nose is both very hoppy and malty, with loads of fruity sweet resinous hops and big sweet caramel malts - maltier than a IIPA typically is, probably due to the 11%. Flavour starts with citrusy and grapefruity hops, transitions to tropical fruits and candied sweet caramel malts, shifting back to the bitter hops, which leave a very pleasant astringency along with some fruitiness on the finish. A bit too sweet and malt-heavy for a IIPA for my tastes - something doesn’t mesh right here. Decent stuff, but quite flawed.

jtclockwork (17070) - , New Jersey, USA - NOV 30, 2012
Bottle. Pours reddish amber with an off white head. Some lacing. Nose and taste is almost entirely resin, liquified pine and tree sap. Some caramel malt. Too perfumy and piny for me. A big beer that’s a little too big. Maybe this one should only go to 8. Medium body.

Benzai (16520) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - APR 27, 2015
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.

bhensonb (15603) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 27, 2013
Bottle from mixmasterob - thanks a bunch guy. Pours hazy copper with a slight yellowish beige head. Aroma is fruity brown sugar. Med body. Flavor is fruity (light pitted) with brown sugar. There’s enough hop to play off the malt. Finishes balanced. Not dry, but definitely bitter.

Scopey (15431) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2016
Bottle thanks to Mr 20K Kenny. It pours clear amber with an orange hue and off-white head. The nose is rich, bitter - sweet, dried fruits, fruit cake, dried apricot, stewed orange, candied peel and varnish. The taste is bitter up-front, wood, resinous, varnish, alcohol warmth, toffee, stewed fruits, earth, apricot, peach and bready malts with a warming finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation and oily mouth-feel. A bit hot perhaps, but good fun.
