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

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.

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.

No idea how this is rated so low. I think it is basically Hopslam with a tad more bite. Savoring my last few bottles.

This beer is on tap at Mad mex and what a treat, golden reddish with modest head. Plenty of hops and some good level of malts. the alcohol plays just a little too much but not surprising at this level.

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.

I can see why people love this, I can see why people hate this. Similar to a 1.5 month old hopslam in the hop profile. Malty, mildly sweet, good carbonation. Juicy hops. Lots of caramel. A bit faded hop character. Basically a good American barley wine, a terrible IPA, and a fantastic double red ale. Hmmmm.

Bottled shared at Sybarite Pig. Thanks Steve and Danny. Pours a very hazy, creamy looking light red. Very little head with mild lace. Pine, cherries, alphalpha, and malt. Taste of pine, pine resin, hay, cherries, berries, with a quick bitter finish. The aftertaste of pine really stays with you. Very good.

12 oz bottle at Ashleyís Ann Arbor. Amber pour with an off-white head. Sweet hoppy floral, pine, lemon, and orange in the aroma. Sticky sweet grapefruit, orange, pine, and floral flavors as well. Quite intense, fresh, and sweet. Really nice stuff.
