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!

Bottle from a Grocery Outlet. Pours clear copper with a creamy beige head. Aroma is floral/herb, light roast malt and a touch of citrus. Med body. Nice level of carbonation. Flavor pretty much matches the aroma. I like that it’s not so roasty as some pale ales. Yet roasty enough to separate it from an IPA. Good drink.

brokensail (10841) - Orange County, California, USA - JAN 16, 2014
Bottle @ home. Copper pour with a finger or so of khaki head. Aromas of caramel malt, grapefruit, orange, and lemon peel. A touch soapy, though. Lots of toast and bread. Flavor is a bit on the sweet side, but still nicely hoppy. Mild bitterness, good grapefruit, and some lemon peel. A lot of sweet orange. Not bad.

Tmoney99 (10595) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 19, 2014
Draft sample at CBWF 2014. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy citrus and herbal hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium citrus bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Solid drinkable brew.

12 ounce bottle, 12/18/13. Pours a clear vibrant copper color with a moderate foamy off-white head. Good head retention. Aroma of citrus forward hops with some earth and dank notes. The taste is toffee malts, citrus and herbal hops. Medium bodied, lingering bitterness, low carbonation, decent balance. Solid beer.

On draught at Winking Lizard. Pours a deep copper-amber color with a medium off-white head that dissipates steadily to an outer ring. Strings of lacing. Aroma of hops, citrus and malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of grassy hops, citrus and toasty malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall.

phaleslu (6411) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 29, 2013
Draft served in a pint glass at Olives. Pours a clear, deeper orange-gold with a small off-white head. The aroma is nice but took a while to emerge, with some orange citrus and herbal hops, sweet and pale malts, maybe a little toffee and grass. The flavor has orange and grapefruit citrus, herbs, grass, pale and sweet malts- really nice, and kept getting better. Light-medium bodied, with a citrusy, juicy mouthfeel that finishes lighter and has moderate carbonation. Really nice and easy to drink. Pleasant surprise.
