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!

Drank the first pint thinking I was drinking sumpin sumpin. No alarms went off, so that’s pretty impressive. Or that’s how long since I had a sumpin. Clear amber with a thinnish head on tap at Howard street. Slightly roasted aroma and flavor. Now this beer is annoying me. Good head. Sweet aroma, slightly fruity. Flavor more complex and a bit hoppy. Good, very good. Bit of a sour finish. Apple flavor hints.

PhatB420 (708) - Pittsfield, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 4, 2015
12oz into a pint. Pours a very pure amber copper fire. Looks nice. Head is medium, thin layer over the liquid and solid all over. Light lacing. Aroma of dank bitter citrus, almost sour at times, then nice clean hop punch. Taste of ripe cantaloupe, the green kind, hops, pine fresh cones, orange staples, and clean herbal remedies. Not a bad APA here, straight and to the point. Crisp, quite clean, and satisfying. Solid.

12oz bottle from The Beer Store Wilson. Orange hue, normal clairty with mostly lasting one finger thick off-white head. Excellent lacing. Medium orange citrus hop, light sweet floral aromas. Soapy light citrus hop taste up front with a light citrus finish. Lively carbonation on the palate.

WabashMan (1016) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - JAN 30, 2015
A nice APA. Pours a very attractive light/medium copper with light tan head that laces the glass. Nose is surprisingly malty, with a little sweetness and the hops in the background. Flavor puts the hops up front. Mostly citrus, but a little piney. A good APA that I’d be happy to find on tap.

Pours dark bronze with medium head retention. Aroma is floral, pine, mild citrus, earthiness. Taste is citrus, malt, pine, fairly sticky linger. Okay drink.

On tap at B&D. Clear light amber with medium beige head. Aroma is citrus hops/herbal hops, medium/light body, medium carbonation, and some small-bubble lacing. Taste is citrus hop, some herbal hops, slightly bitter finish. Pretty good.
