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!

UPDATED: AUG 20, 2014 Bottle into English pint glass (per bottle’s instructions), clear reddish-copper color with light tan head. Aroma of herbal/citrus hops (leans more herbal to me) and caramel malt. Taste adds notes of toast, lemon zest, orange rind and grass. Medium body, low carbonation with bitter dry finish. An herbal leaning APA, pretty good.

JaBier (5188) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - MAY 3, 2015
Bottle purchased as part of a mixed sixer at Kroger Stoneridge. Clear amber pour with a thick beige head. Aroma of malt, grassy hop and pine. Malty and citrusy flavor with sweet caramel before a grassy hop finish.

adnielsen (9910) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 3, 2015
Bottle @ home, picked up at Boulder Liquor Mart. Clear, rust orange appearance with a light brown head. Caramel, bitter herbal hops, some pine, grapefruit in the nose. Moderate high bitterness and sweetness. Tons of caramel and bland, piney hops. Not offensive but it is boring.

3fourths (8481) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 1, 2015
Bottle. Clear dull amber with a foamy white head. Stewed caramel malt worty aroma, hops come across as basic pine sap and maraschino cherry syrup. Medium-light body, flabby and syrupy and sweet, seemingly unfinished. Malt that tastes like extract syrup and vegemite (but that could be the autolyzed yeast). Sour, thin, raw bitter finish. Hoppy pale ale is so easy to make these days, which makes this 90’s-era goopy mess so much worse.

stevoj (2663) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 1, 2015
Props for the Idaho connection. Hops lean towards the resinous side, woody and astringent. Amber body with adequate airy head. Slightly fruity nose, grapes, wood. Taste is malt (mildly sour) with some dry hop bitterness. A SN APA this is not....more of a sipper

smboselli (122) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 24, 2015
I would consider this more of a "session" IPA, and it's great for that. Easy drinking and flavorful ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Deep amber color. Floral aroma. Hops borders ipa level but stays low enough to be pale ale quality. Tap

4/12/15 Bottle - Nice copper brown pour, decent white pillow head, good carbonation. Wheat, citrus and hops aroma. Pleasant tasting beer, wheat and hops were good, citrus and other herbs were present and the beer had a good balance. Very smooth to drink, not a very strong beer. Overall good offering by Goose Island!

Bottle pour at home, golden pour, hop aroma, little bite at the end of this one, nothing that impressive about this one, but still a good beer.
