On tap at Twisted Jimmyís. Mild malt and spice, some light allspice and a wee bit of hops. Medium copper amber clear with thin off-white creamy lacing head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Starts moderately sweet with medium bitterness. Nice spicy bite to it. Smooth sweet finish with clean after.

Pours amber-orange with a sizable frothy white head. Aroma is pine and fruit. A couple reviews below someone describes the fruity note as overripe pineapple -- that totally nails it for me. Taste is mild at first, with bitterness dominating the finish. Also get a malty note somewhere in there when actually tasting. Palate is fairly light, with nice carbonation at the front. Iím enjoying the moderate hops here-- I donít feel like Iím being knocked on my ass with hoppy bitterness, which is nice for a change. Very drinkable and fresh. Better than expected.

Amber brew with the smell of spice and pine. Taste is spicy with an acidic bite to the tounge like grapefruit but not exactly the flavor of grapefruit. Sort of a pine flavor with caramel malts mixed in. The more I drank it the more flavors I got to picking out but the spicy hop and caramel malt kept coming back. Interesting brew at a reasonable price. Will be grabbing more before it is gone.

Bottle. Pours a crystal clear amber color with a moderate off-white head on it. Nose is quite hoppy, with some great floral and grassy elements to it. Taste is super light and very slightly bitter. but tastes nice and fresh. Really light and clean taste. I like it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, tasted side-by-side with Gooseís 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 donít 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 itís 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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
