COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ten Hills traces its story to Elk Mountain Farms in Idaho, famous for growing hops of exceptional quality and character. With hops from the "first ten hills" grown for Goose Island at Elk Mountain, we crafted a pale ale that delivers both a herbal and citrus hop character. We hope you’ll find the intriguing balance of flavors in this beer to be truly unparalleled. Cheers!

Bottle, tasted side-by-side with Goose’s regular IPA because, why not? Poured into identical Stella tulip glasses, the Ten Hills is immediately a darker orange than the IPA. Both put up a spongy IPA head that just peeks over the rim, then leaves lacy webbing. Ten Hills has an orangy fresh hop note. My IPA bottles are getting older, but they have always shot for the more earthy and bitter English hop profile. Taste has some honey sweetness, broken up by prickly bubbles that help to drive the hop bitterness home. I don’t get the claimed herbal notes, but the citrus is there, even if mostly in the nose. I take it as a sign that the Goose is doing well at retail, if it’s finally bottling a variant pale ale like other smaller beermakers.

Bottle pours a clear amber color with a foamy off white top. Nose is caramel and grass. Taste is caramel and herbal. Not a pleasant herbal either.

hotstuff (4397) - Indiana, USA - APR 2, 2014
Rated on 3-19-2014 (Bottle) This beer pours a large foamy ivory head with a long retention, transparent amber body with slow rising carbonation, and a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is caramel malt, citrus and earthy hops. The taste is semi-sweet, very bitter, caramel malt, citrus, and earthy hops. Even though this beer is an APA, it was very hoppy tasting and geared more towards those beer drinkers who like very hoppy tasting beers.

EtTuCthulhu (1361) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - MAR 29, 2014
The color of this beer is a clear brownish orange with a large off-white head, and the aroma is resin and floral hops with caramel malts. The taste is mildly bitter, slightly sour, and a touch sweet, and the palate fuses a soft carbonation, medium body, slick texture, and a slightly bitter finish.
