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!

Copper body beneath a white head. Weak retention but lacing is noticable. Aroma is more malt focused but floral hops are present. A little butterscotch in the flavor, but not offputting by any means. Sweeter finish than most in this style. Notthing mindblowing, but not bad either. I would buy this again. Decent for the style, but there are better examples out there.

seymour (1544) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - MAR 4, 2015
Tasted at the 2015 Centennial Beer Fest from bottle into sampler glass. It poured a clear golden amber colour with thin but peristent white foam. Good blend of malty sweetness and hoppy bitterness with loads of citrusy, fruity, spicy, and resiny flavours. A nice mix of noble and New World aspects. Light-medium body, strong carbonation, noticeable alcoholic strength, fruity and caramelly aftertastes. Good stuff.

12 ounce single bottle from the local Harris Teeter, as part of a create your own six-pack. Pours a copper color with a thin head. Aroma is thin with hops and a touch of floral citrus. Taste is muted with a hoppy bite to finish. Not bad, but nothing special.

The smell is the best part of the beer some good hop prescience. Taste is just OK little malt, little bitterness, slight citrus hops.

Dark amber pour with a one finger, off white head. Medium-strong hop & malt aroma with a medium initial bitterness that transitions into a soft & sweet maltiness. I love the dynamic of the bitter then super clean & sweet flavor. Very interesting & enjoyable!

I found this one middle of the road. Very lemony sweetness upfront thats a little offputting then some hop bite and linger that tastes a little bready and earthy. Lightish mouthfeel. Overall meh.

Bottle poured amber color with large, off-white head and excellent lacing. Beer has a very earthy aroma with hints of pine and grass in the hops. The light carbonation dances on the tongue. Light body that finishes smoothly, the grassy hops lingering faintly on the tongue long after the beer is gone.

SlimHabib (249) - Redondo Beach, California, USA - FEB 28, 2015
Bottle pour. Bright amber color with a large light beige foamy head. Aroma is sweet malts, pine, lemon and light grass. Light body. Pine taste with a little bitter aftertaste.

troyc (2857) - Illinois, USA - FEB 24, 2015
[Bottle] Amber color with a soapy white head. Nice hoppy aroma mixes with caramel and light grainy maltiness. Flavors of lemongrass, floral hops, perfume, caramel, toffee and white bread. Dry and somewhat grainy finish. Nice lacing is left over on the glass. Pretty decent overall.

Pours dark amber. Great creamy white head. Aroma of sweet bread and pine. Taste of sweet bready malts, pine and citrus hops. Malty cereal finish. Very drinkable, yet too sweet for this guy. I can do 2 in a row max.
