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. Pours a clear deep caramel gold with a grayish tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of resin with a backing sweet grain note. Flavor starts with syrupy resinous pine with a growing sweet grain and caramel note.

hopscotch (11078) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 9, 2013
Bottle... Clear burnt-orange ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. I drank this one right after a bottle of Surly Syx. Ironically, it smells, tastes and feels a lot like Syx with less alcohol burn. It’s like Syx’s little brother. Syx’s 260 lbs little brother. Bottle courtesy of biggsbowler!

daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 29, 2012
Red pour, off white head. Aroma? All resinous christmas trees and some sweet sticky caramel malts. Big bold and overpowering resin with some malts that get lost in the liquid pine trees.

DocLock (10683) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 12, 2012
Draft at Capone’s. Pours turbid deep coppery with ruby edges and 2-finger off-white lacy head. Nose is big resiny hops, caramel malt, mild vinous fruit. Tastes of caramel, resiny peppery hops, some vinous heat, and a resiny finish.

cubs (10635) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 25, 2013
Bottle @ home via trade with DrSilverworm. Thanks! Pours a bit hazy, dark red orange appearance with a cream colored head. Rich toasty caramel malty, a bit herbal/woody, mild citrus fruity, a bit boozy, dull herbal hoppy aroma. Somewhat spicy, herbal/green hoppy, a bit chewy, slight ethanol, toasty caramel malty, chewy yeasty flavor with a bit more booze on the finish. I imagine this would have been a little better fresh since the hops have faded here and while this is a bit too strong and boozy for my taste, it’s not bad.

3.9
BVery (10501) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - OCT 4, 2012
Bottle. Rich reddish amber pour with a small white head. Aggressive pine resin, dusty caramel malts, citrus hops, and a nice slick full palate.

alexsdad06 (10390) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 19, 2014
12 oz bottle in Oct. 2012 and again late Dec 2013. Pours a clear dark amber brown with a thin beige head. The aroma and flavor have toasted malts, caramel, resiny, earthy, some citrus hops, herbal notes, fresh it was a bit hot, interesting enough and still not doing too bad.

3.8
phaleslu (10247) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 11, 2013
12 oz. bottle shared at a tasting. Pours a mostly clear, rich gold color with just a bit of red-orange hue and a small eggshell white head. Aroma of big citrus and floral notes, sweet malts, bread, and toasted sugar. Flavor of floral notes, citrus peel, pine resin, caramel, and pineapple. Medium-bodied, with medium carbonation and a resinous, bitter mouthfeel that finishes crisp. Drinks like an imperial IPA. Nice beer.
