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!

radio_nowhere (699) - Maryland, USA - JAN 18, 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.

EithCubes (4626) - New Jersey, USA - APR 17, 2014
Bottled on 07NOV13 in Baldwinsville, NY, hope it holds up. Nose of caramel and biscuit with low butterscotch, English crystal malt, some dank earthy hops, dough -- there’s a lot going on here. Pours Clear amber with light carb and a rocky beige head. Taste medium bitter and somewhat tangy, moderately dry with spritzing citrus fruit and caramel, some grinding alcohol, heavy body for its gravity. Crisp but not really refreshing, some toast and toffee, a little dulled around the edges but I think it’s more to do with the recipe than freshness.

Reddish, small tan head. Slightly spicy, orange peel, slight molasses. Some sourness, some bitterness, a little sweetness. Medium body, medium carbonation. Thicker mouthfeel that doesn't quite match the body. Not awesome. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

sloth (2399) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - APR 15, 2014
Med/large off white head, very good retention and a coating, lasting lace. Clear, copper colored brew, a good lookin brew. Mild hop nose, spicy, leafy and lightly citrusy with a hint of sweet malts. Body is almost medium with a low carbonation,lightly oily, somewhat sticky. Fairly dry caramel malts with ice tea notes and slight hop flavors of citrus and earth. Dry finish, tame ass bite. Not bad, just boring. 12oz. bottle from statelineliquors.

solidfunk (2999) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - APR 15, 2014
Really comes together well for style. Pours clear maroon with good head and lacing. Nice medium bitter finish. Some citrus hops with good malt presence. Good package. Tap at DC Beer festival.

VTHopHead (1503) - Barre, Vermont, USA - APR 11, 2014
12oz bottle - Pours a drak orange-amber in color with a small white head that settles to a thin covering over the beer... minor lacing. Aroma is of grainy malts and lots of pine. Flavor is heavy with pine hoppiness, but the malts hang in there. Medium bitter and dry finish. Good...

msante79 (2209) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - APR 10, 2014
12oz bottle. Pours dark orange with a white head. Aromas of piney hops and bready malts. Flavor pine, citrus, caramel malt, and a little bread. Decent amount of bitterness. Not bad.

johnnnniee (2038) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - APR 9, 2014
Bottle from Ayotte’s Pours a crystal clear deep amber color with a huge frothy off white head that persists forever leaving stickies all over the sides of the glass. Aromas of caramel, earth, pine and sulfur. The flavor is sweet rich caramel and toffee with just enough earthy pine to provide a break in the sweetness. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet creamy bubbly mouthfeel. English inspired brew, easy to drink, but not really my cup of tea.

Nate (3553) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 8, 2014
On tap at Twisted Jimmy’s. 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.

sigh_borg (80) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 6, 2014
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. I’m enjoying the moderate hops here-- I don’t feel like I’m being knocked on my ass with hoppy bitterness, which is nice for a change. Very drinkable and fresh. Better than expected.

dlihcsnatas (236) - Texas, USA - APR 6, 2014
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.
