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."

Bottle thanks to Mr 20K Kenny. It pours clear amber with an orange hue and off-white head.

12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods Market Charlottesville. Pours a clear amber color with a thin frothy off-white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of big hops... resin, citrus, berries. Well balanced toffee malts. The taste is tart fruits, resin and citrus hops and toffee malts. A faint bit of earth and an anise-like herbal note that is very mild. Medium bodied. Nice beer.

Dogbrick (12578) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 21, 2013
This brew pours a slightly hazy copper-brown color with a medium foamy off-white head that dissipates slowly. Sticky rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, hops and malt. Full-bodied with flavors of moderately bitter hops, grapefruit, grainy malt and a bit of pine. The finish is citrusy hops with malt and toffee undertones. Good beer with an ABV that sneaks up on you quickly.

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.

Sammy (11820) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 1, 2013
Did not realize this bottle was at 11%. A presentable strong ale, with a good hop and toast aroma inviting me in. This reddish tinged and very heady and lacey offering had a sooth creamy mouthfeel. The hops are there in abundance, but not overally assertive. They linger on the palate. Sizable malt bill backing a big IBU. Good drinkability, the colder weather was appropriate to savor this one.Flanders Red

"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..."
