look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

So excited to get my hands on this one, hopefully it stands up to the reviews! The appearance is B.eautiful, but not too hard to screw that up. The aroma coming from this beast is pure hop overload! very hoppy, and lots of tropical notes to back that up, slight citrus note and even some dankness, the aroma is hanging out in my nose!
taste. this is not an ipa to mess around with, triple, no kidding! this is one hoppy mo fo! very tropically/citrusy with some strong bitter hop dankness. yum! mouthfeel is awesome higher end low carbonation with some silky mouthfeel slikness.
overall: great ipa, especially triple, if you can find it. no booziness to speak of, very filling and rich though, don't take this on alone!!

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours out a dark amber in color with a one finger, white head with good retention and decent lacing for the size of the head. Smell is nice tropical hops, guava, pineapple, a little orange, with a tiny bit of pine. Definitely sense a little sweetness and caramel from the malts. Taste is quite nice with more of the tropical but a little more muted than in the nose. I get a little more pine that seems to linger in the throat as swallowed which is nice. Mouthfeel is is nice and thick for the style. Overall I have to say that this is probably my favorite Steel Toe beer I have drank but I haven't had them all.

Thanks Steasy66!!

Appearance. Pours a rich hazy orange with a little amber and topped with a finger of off-white head that fades to a skim but leaves some great lace.

Smell. Big caramel, candied citrus rinds and marmalade, some sweet grainy malts, tropical fruits and some honey ...and a maybe touch of pine.

Taste. Caramel and sweet malts, citrus rinds and more tropical fruit than the nose hinted at, good bitterness in the finish. There's a nice light acidity throughout that lightens up what would be pretty heavy on the palate.

Mouthfeel. Pretty full body, low+ carbonation. Slightly sticky on the lips but it goes well with this kind of beer.

Overall. Great stuff. Such a big beer that's quite drinkable is always a great thing in my books. Like many tips's, it's approaching barleywine territory but much easier drinking and incredibly hoppy. Thanks again Ryan, a fine choice!

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Tasted 9 July 2013.

Pours clear golden amber. One finger of off-white head, good retention and lacing. Fantastic color, great appearance.

Smell is big on the hops, citrusy and fruity. Grapefruit and melon are front and center, with caramel sugar aromas just behind them. Potent and delightful.

Taste is solid. Biggest complaint is that there's just too much alcohol in here. It brings a burn in the back, that drags my enjoyment down. Starts out quite sweet and sugary, then drifts into a moderately bitter phase. The hop bitterness comes on a little, but is overpowered by the alcohol pinge.

Feel is exactly as it should be. Medium-bodied, sugary sticky, just enough carbonation (medium-low), and lasting.

A good, beefed-up IPA. Think it might be better if it were toned down a bit, but brewers and beer drinkers like to take things to extremes. Smell and mouthfeel are top-notch, taste is not.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

750ml capped champagne bottle courtesy of Blind BIF #8. Poured into Crooked Stave snifter.

Appearance: Orange-brown liquid fills glass with a creamy 2 fingers of head. Strong thick lacing.

Smell: Initial smell from the bottle is oranges. In the glass I get more pine and burnt caramel, plus alcohol.

Taste: Booze and pine hops balance out the heavy caramel malt. Bit of a citrus underbite. Caramel malt and pine hops linger on the palate post sip. Citrus peaks out more as the beer warms in the glass though.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied and extremely sticky - hop oils coat my mouth like peanut butter. Moderate to high carb.

Drinkability: Probably one that is best to split. The alcohol is high at 11%, but it drinks a bit more easily than a true sipper. The stickiness of the beer alone may prove too much for a second glass for many.

Overall: This is a monster of a hoppy beer. I would probably not seek it out again, but I would give it another whirl if I stumbled across it.

4.29/5  rDev +4.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Deep amber color, well carbonated and with a creamy head that leaves a lot of lacing.

Smell: Big hop aroma; citrus, pine, spices etc.

Taste: Fairly hop-forward but better balanced than the Size 7 IMO, lots of citrus and pine flavor and the ABV is evident in this one.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, well carbonated

Overall: Great DIPA, I like Size 7 but this beer seems to improve on some of the deficiencies of that beer IMO. It's better balanced, thicker body, more flavor, and more ABV. It's not quite as good as my favorites in this style but it's still very good.

look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Thanks to KWMiles and Minnesotaryan for the bottle.

Appearance: A dark orange infused copper. Head is massive, pillowy, creamy, and dense. Drops to a small creamy cap and collar after a couple minutes. Great head retention. Sheets and big notches of lacing. Moderate carbonation on the pour. Really spot on here.

Smell: Big hit of juicy citrus coupled with a solid earthiness. A bit of an oily leafy thing. Massive juicy fruit, some orange, grapefruit and apple. Even pushes in to mango a bit. Malts are huge and sweet, but they have to be to balance the hops. Caramelized malt sugars hit caramel, toffee, and a touch of brown sugar. Can you big and balanced and aggressive? Yes, you can if you're Size 11. Oh, did I mention the alcohol in the back. Yeah, it's assertive.

Taste: Big leafy and herbal. Some of the citrus drops out. Juicy grapefruit with some bitter pithiness. A bit more oily pine needle than the nose would indicate. Backing alcohol increases a bit as it warms. Mega boozy. Sweet biscuity malts. Huge caramel and toffee flavors. Almost like raw honey. Distinctly earthy. A bit floral on the edges. Hop spiciness. Juicy.

Mouthfeel: Slick and oily. Smooth with a solidly dry finish from the alcohol. Moderate carbonation breaks it up giving it a medium body, carefully avoiding that syrupy fell mess that "triple IPAs" tend toward.

Overall: Insert Spinal Tap reference.

Another solid take from Steel Toe. A big IPA that doesn't push too far. I'd drink it again, and that's rare, especially for the style. A bit too boozy in the long run, but that's really the worst of it.

4.24/5  rDev +2.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Sort of a ruby/caramel color body with a big, sticky set of carb... tons of lace, plenty of soapy legs.

Citric and earthy hop aromas blend nicely with a sturdy caramel malt backbone. Not a hop bomb by any means... smells pretty well constructed, good sense of balance without any aggressive booze character.

This one has been described to me as both a barleywine and a "melon bomb." I don't really find either to be true as far as the palate is concerned. There's a decent amount of fruity hop flavor, namely citrus and banana. The malts, again, provide plenty of support. The booze isn't quite as well integrated as the nose would suggest... that said, it's nothing overwhelming.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a Surly Darkness Chalice. 2013 bottle.

Appearance: Pours a deep copper amber orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. About two fingers of off white head which recede into a thin creamy layer. Leaves a good amount of lacing.

Smell: A big and rich aroma of hops with lots of citrus, earthy, and spicy hints. Big juicy and oily smell of hops with earthy, floral, and citrus hints. Hints of grass and dank pine resin spice. Citrus fruit hints of grapefruit, orange peel, tangerine, mango, pineapple, apricot, papaya, melon, and lemon. Solid sweet malty background with hints of caramel, toffee, grain, biscuit, and yeast. Also some hints of candied sugar. A very big and juicy hop forward aroma. Quite good.

Taste: Follows the nose quite well, a huge lush and juicy taste of hops with citrus, pine, and grassy notes. Big citrus hop presence with juicy notes of ripe grapefruit, orange peel, mango, tangerine, pineapple, papaya, apricot, lemon, and melon. Spicy notes with some dank pine resin hops. Also some floral and grassy notes. Hops are pretty fresh, bitter, oily, and drying. Solid malt backing with notes of sweet caramel, toffee, biscuit, grains, and yeast. Taste is very hop forward and nicely thick and juicy. Very good.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied and fairly thick with a moderate amount of carbonation. Juicy, oily, bitter, and pretty drying. Alcohol is hidden behind the assault of hops.

Overall: A great imperial IPA. A juiced up version of an already very good IPA from this young brewery. Steel Toe knocks it out of the park again.

Poured into snifter

A Dark transparent copper. Slight film and lacing around glass.

S Very floral. Orange peel. Piney. A little sweet malty and buttery too.

T Malt and booze up front. Bitter pine resin kicks in. This is followed by a nice fruity zest. Citric. Peppery and bitter aftertaste.

M Some carbonation, but rather oily. Has an unexpected crisp finish.

O This one will knock you on your ass. It's pretty overpowering, but still refreshing. It's bitter, really bitter, but it's not entirely unbalanced. There is some sweetness and plenty of malts backing this up. The alcohol isn't hiding though. Really good.

2013 release: Dried mango and papaya flavors, slick and resiny, very fresh and hoppy. When fresh its better than Devil Dancer, imho. Scores up across the board.

3-24-2012:
Bright and saturated copper orange color, nice clarity, copious light tan foam that froths up to the rim of the glass and slowly settles, leaving behind arcs of drippy lacing in the glass. Over time the skim fades to a ring around the edges.

Sweet and fruity aroma, somewhat suggestive of cantaloupe or melon. Some caramel malt sweetness there also as it warms up.

Fruity citrus rind and resiny pine bitterness, smooth cantaloupe notes with a dry bitter finish that lingers nicely. A warming spicy note from the 11% abv, though it's not too overt in the taste. It's got a nice smoothness with a medium body and low carbonation, sort of a sticky nectar thing happening. Overall a nice DIPA that i'd recommend to hopheads for sure.

Feel: Moderately heavy feel.

Overall: I finally got to try Size 11. Picked up a couple bottles at the brewery on the release day. It's a very tasty double IPA, listed as a triple IPA on the label. Not overly bitter or too sweet, just a big beer with a nice balance of sweetness and hop flavor. Good stuff.

Reviewing the Size 11 Double IPA from Steel Toe Brewing.
Score: 85

Bottled 02/24/12, served in a Half Acre tulip and enjoyed on 04/09/12. Review is from notes.

Appearance: Pours a transparentish caramel color. This beer looks more like a dark red ale than an IPA. Two fingers of off-white frothy seafoam head at pour slowly settles, leaving behind ample lacing on the side of the glass. Below average lacing and retention once the beer settles, however. 3.5/5

Smell: Super malty and not very hoppy. Sweet caramel, lemon and brown sugar. A touch of tiramissue, some bitter barley/grain and an aroma I can only describe as "margarine." A little bit of alcohol. 3.5/5

Taste: Creamy vanilla and caramel. Bitter barley and biscuits. A modest amount of piney citrus and hops flavor too -- not a lot of it, but more than was in the aroma. 3.75/5

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, medium carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel. The finish is dry, sweet and malty. 4/5

Overall: Nothing special, but nothing awful. I would not have guessed that this was an IPA on my own -- I probably would have guessed red ale. At least it was better than the 75 Minute IPA.

Recommendation: Fans of the 75 minute IPA will probably love this one, but it's more of a caramel/grain IPA than your traditional hoppy beer. I would not seek this one out again.

Pairings: Pretzels.

Cost: $11 for a 750 ml bottle.

Thanks to Pawola22 for sending me this bottle.

The beer pours an orange-amber color with a white head. The aroma is full of pine and orange notes, with a little bit of resin and some biscuit malt. The flavor is similar, being dominated by pine and resin notes from the hops. There is also some biscuit and toffee, as well as a medium amount of bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

A: Great golden amber color with a small amount of white head but what great about this appearance is the lacing throughout that stays very long.

S: Very good smell. Although it has a strong malty, caramel smell with it, it has a great undertone of orange and grapefruit hop smells. Def. makes me want to try it!!

T: Very good taste. Has a great amount of bitterness to it at the end but not too much. Tastes of grapefruit very much and the maltiness that I smelled is minimal - which i like.

M: Good, medium bodies mouthfeel.

O: OVerall, I like this beer - I will be buying it again. Great price, great beer, great job Steel Toe!

4.23/5  rDev +2.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Fairly clear deep amber/cooper orange with a decent sized khaki colored head with pretty good retention. Nice lacing.

S: Lots of nice sweet carmel malts with melon (cantaloupe and honeydew come to mind), honey and ripe grapefruit. Lots of melon in this, don't think I've ever smelled this much melon in a IPA before.

T: The melon smell transfers over to the taste as well. The honeydew and cantaloupe sweetness comes more on the backend. It's bitter grapefruit and a bit of pine/resiny hops up front, mixed with a big dose of carmel malt. Still pretty damn hoppy compared to the first bottle I had pretty close after the release in late February.

M: Medium body, average carbonation. Kind of a drier finish.

O: Very well done. I liked this second bottle I had a lot more than the first. I kind of remember the first being almost a little too intense and "green" tasting. I think a little over a month helped this out for my tastes.

Shared by Thorpe, thanks.

Beer is orange and mostly clear with a fine white head of small bubbles, some lacing, moderate to low carbonation.

Aroma is tropical fruit, citrus hops, nice. A little malt.

Malty IPA, covers up the hop presence, they cut through a little bringing a nice almost aftertaste and mild bitterness to the beer but as an IPA this is a let down. Sorry. Not a repeat.

Thanks to Rhettroactive for sharing this one. Poured from a 750ml bottle into a tasting glass. It poured a clear copper color with a thin, sticky head to it. Nice looking color.

The aroma is very juicy and fruity with an abundance of candied orange and pineapple to it. The sweet, caramel and candied like malts give it a lot of sweetness, but I think it compliments well and works for it. The juicy hoppiness is also really good.

The taste shows a little more resiny, citrus rind and grapefruit flavors to it in addition to the juicy, tropical fruit hoppiness. I still get a lot of candied fruits, orange and caramel to it though as well. I really liked the juicy hoppiness and candied fruits combination, it didn't say on the bottle but I assume there are some Citra hops in there.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall I thought it was a really good beer. I loved the juicy, candied like fruits to it. It had a lot of sweetness to it, but I thought it worked with the bright, tropical fruit hoppiness well. This was one of the surprises of the night, I never heard of it before but it was one of my favorites of the evening.

Capped 750ml bottle purchased from France 44.

A deep red pour with a very impressive head of foam with plenty of nice lacing.

It smells hoppy with some pine and citrus and other fruits that I can't nail but I'll take a guess and say apricots or maybe peach? Behind that there's an underlining of toasted malts that bring a sweet factor to the aroma.

The taste surprised me; plenty of pine hop bitterness but I'm getting big notes of melon?, and apricot, and lots of toasted malt too with the what, 111 IBUs? And where IS that alcohol? 11% abv doesn't do much more than warm the belly a bit. Cool.

Full bodied with light carbonation, the mouthfeel is so smooth.

Other than the melon taste which threw me for a loop, I like everything about this DIPA. I guess I'll have to try more of Steel Toe's offerings..

This beer pours a semi-clear ruby color. The head is one inch in height, and recedes slowly into a nice cap of lacing. The aroma is of passion fruit, grapefruit, flowers garden, hints of cherry, and a nice leafy character that I've only experienced in fresh hopped beers. This is a very complex aroma. I find myself having a hard time drinking this beer, because I'm too busy smelling it. The taste is equally complex with tons of passion fruit and grapefruit, and a solid sharp bitterness in the finish. There are nice floral notes, and a bit of grass rounding things out. The mouthfeel is full bodied with moderate carbonation, and a silky texture. Overall, this is a great beer that I look forward to drinking over and over again for years to come.

From 750mL bottle to Portsmouth glass on 3/10/12
*From notes

-- Many thanks to brydeen, one of my favorite traders --

A: Dark, haunting orange in color. It actually looks not too dissimilar to a Vienna Lager. A solid pour yields a decent one finger white head and moderate lacing.

S: Pine, and a shit ton of it. Intense hop oil sears my nostrils.

T: Extreme quantities of piney hops overwhelm my mouth. And it lasts, lingering for some time after my last sip. As it warms, a bit of that oniony quality that bigger DIPA's tend to carry comes to the forefront.

M: A big, massive beer. Dense and cloying. This things just sticks to the walls of my mouth.

O: Looking for a hop beatdown? This is just what the doctor ordered, as it really feels like a Size 11 set of hops kicked me right in the teeth.

Well done, Steel Toe.
