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!

355ml bottle. Clear reddish amber colour, moderate head. Citrus and caramel aroma. Herbal and bitter orange hop flavours, slight caramel and biscuit malt. Average body. Overall, a different tasting APA, worth a try if you like herbal hops.

arminjewell (6326) - lansing, Michigan, USA - MAY 24, 2014
Pour on tap, clear dark orange pour with white head, aroma brought orange, grass, some herbal notes into lots of caramel, dough, and bready notes, slight spice. Taste was a mix of grass, biscuit, some orange peel into sweet caramel, slight yeast and spice, finishing slightly bitter. Eh, hoping this is old.

cards04 (1828) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 21, 2014
A decent beverage. Pours a golden color. Aromas are pine, honey, woodsy aromas. This is very easy to drink. Nice and malty. Some bitterness. An entry level APA.. But a good one.

andrewje41 (598) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - MAY 21, 2014
Bottle. A copper pour with a faint hop aroma. A little bread and some hops on the initial flavor with a slightly bitter finish. A decent amount of flavor compared to my experiences with APA’s. Not a bad beer at all.

scarletfire65 (976) - Rockaway Park, New York, USA - MAY 20, 2014
Bottle at home. Amber pour, average head. Aroma of malt, raisins, fruit compote, cinnamon sticks, slightly oxidized. Tastes fresher than it smells. Mildly bitter throughout. Caramel malt, soapy, finish lingers for a bit. Probably better fresher or on tap. Average all around.

RumRunner101 (803) - Alberta, CANADA - MAY 18, 2014
Amber pour. Aroma is earth, citrus. Flavour has a bready malt backing with citrus and minty hop flavours. A little different, and I like it.

obguthr (4025) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - MAY 17, 2014
Lemon zest, caramel, grass aroma, not strong. Clear copper, thick yellow head, good lacing. Tea flavor, lemon accents. Good bones. Nicely balanced, quaffable.

Bif (1545) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 16, 2014
Pours a dark bronze color wiyh thick head that fades slowly to some lacing. Aroma fairly mild blend of citrus and malt sweetness, floral with a hint of grain. Taste of citrus, malt and caramel swetness and a bit herbal. Subtle bitterness and a clean fi nish. Moderate body, crisp,clean and refreshing. Enjoyable beer that goes down easy.

maltman53 (371) - Corrales, New Mexico, USA - MAY 14, 2014
I’ve had two of this beer from the same assorted 12-pack and there is a huge skunky, moldy, oxidized aroma and confirmed on the palate. I suspect black bread molds and mildew grew in both wort and beer, Or the fault could be a result of poorly stored malt. Overall, an off-flavor beer.

bavarian81 (64) - Massachusetts, USA - MAY 9, 2014
very nice copper color. Not much of an aroma. Taste is bready, hoppy, and slightly fruity. It’s not that much different from their honker’s ale. not a bad beer. Probably wouldn’t go out of my way to drink it again though
