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 youíll find the intriguing balance of flavors in this beer to be truly unparalleled. Cheers!

12 oz bottle served in a goblet. Pours a dark amber color with excellent clarity and a decent head. Has a nice spicy aromka from the hops, but the flavor is a bit too earthy for my tastes.

jake65 (3160) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 25, 2014
Bottle: Pale golden-orange color with a finger of creamy beige head. Nice lacing throughout. I didnít find this to have much of an aroma, light citrus and forals, but the hops flavor brings a nice blend of citrus and florals. Caramel malt in the background and faintly bready.

Huge white head which fades to 1/2". Aroma is sickly sweet malt with some unrecognizable grassy hops and soap. Taste is like hops candy--sickly sweet to start, very . very bitter finish. Kind of a metallic tang as well. Not my favorite, obvs. Mouthfeel is good if you can ignore the flavor.

Bottle - light copper/medium orange in color with an average head. Light sweet malt flavor with some hoppiness. Medium body.

Crisp and clear with grapefruit and pine, plus caramel sweetness offsetting the light bitterness. Good but nothing special.

hombrepalo (1971) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 21, 2014
12oz pour. Poured clear amber, nice white fluffy head, and decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is herbal, citrusy, quite hoppy... some malts in there too. Nice balanced taste; Sweet malts and grain combined with a very nice citrus and hop notes.

cheap (4894) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 19, 2014
Amber colored with a medium thick rocky head from a bottle. Typical sweeter hop aroma. Taste is trying to be impy ipa but never gets there. Chewing on fruity green grapefruit rinds. The finish also approaches ipa in the end. Perhaps a little more sharp than the typical APA. Yes, quite bitter on the finish.

EithCubes (5377) - New Jersey, USA - APR 17, 2014
Bottled on 07NOV13 in Baldwinsville, NY, hope it holds up. Nose of caramel and biscuit with low butterscotch, English crystal malt, some dank earthy hops, dough -- thereís a lot going on here. Pours Clear amber with light carb and a rocky beige head. Taste medium bitter and somewhat tangy, moderately dry with spritzing citrus fruit and caramel, some grinding alcohol, heavy body for its gravity. Crisp but not really refreshing, some toast and toffee, a little dulled around the edges but I think itís more to do with the recipe than freshness.

Reddish, small tan head. Slightly spicy, orange peel, slight molasses. Some sourness, some bitterness, a little sweetness. Medium body, medium carbonation. Thicker mouthfeel that doesn't quite match the body. Not awesome. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
