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!

Leighton (13620) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2015
Bottle at the Holiday Inn Express - Geneva, NY. Pours totally clear copper-gold with a foamy white head. The nose holds leafy hops, caramel, bread and pine. Medium sweet flavor with notes of graham crackers, toasty bread, oily pine. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Lightly resinous on the finish, some faded and leafy hops, more caramel. So so.

brokensail (12519) - 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.

bhensonb (12173) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 22, 2014
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.

Tmoney99 (11711) - 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.

adnielsen (10028) - 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.

Drake (9999) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JAN 1, 2014
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.

hopdog (9642) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 29, 2014

Dogbrick (9197) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 17, 2014
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.

shrubber85 (8787) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - OCT 13, 2014
Bottle. Orange malt and metallic orange peel aroma. Amber with small head. Sweet orange/peach malt and moderately bitter orange peel/tin flavor. Okay - a bit harsh.
