Eleven is made with a single variety of hops, Phoenix, from the UK. Phoenix was developed at Wye College to be a high alpha acid (bitterness) hops with a British flavor profile. Phoenix is also low in cohumulone and high in aromatic oils, so you can throw a ton of ’em in and the beer will stay smooth and aromatic. This beer has 109 IBUs in it! The taste profile is incredibly balanced and dangerously drinkable for an 11.7% brew. But don’t look for that grapefruity-piny taste you get from US hops (not that there’s anything wrong with that), these buds are fruity and earthy with an almost berry-like aroma, to give this beer a unique taste among big IPAs. Bitterness we got! And malt to back it up, with the result being a very intriguing beer you’ll just want to sip all night thanks to Phoenix hops. Cheers!

One of the worst beers I have ever tasted. this is the first triple IPA i have tried, and my initial skepticism proved to be right. It was too much of everything, in my opinion. The hoppiness and extreme malt flavors cancelled each other out, and reminded me of a bad barleywine mixed with cough syrup. From reading other reviews i see that some like this but I’ll pass.

Bottle from old backlog notes 07. Pours a hazy orange amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet caramel malts, citrus, hints of tropical fruit, earthy, the bitterness was not as big as I like, but this was decent nonetheless.

Bottle. pours cloudy amber with an off-white head. Aroma of minty hops, malt, some oxidized notes and some caramel. Flavor is sweet and bitter with some flora and minty notes. Medium body, average carbonation. Ages well .

yngwie (17284) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2013
Bottle. It pours an orangey dark golden body and almost no head. The aroma still has a good hoppyness, altough faded. Pine cones and resins and a good dash of orange zest. Maltyness too. It’s quite bitter in the mouth, with malty sweetness trying to balance it. Pine cones, orange and some phenolic notes. Lasting bitter finish with a nice sugary maltyness. Even though it’s more than six years old, it’s a nice DIPA. 130216
