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 chicken chucks. Pours a clear copper color with a medium white head. A big fruity hoppy nose. Very clean, fresh hops, light orange, medium bitterness, toasted malts. Good. A quaffable brew.

Duhast500 (414) - Cumberland, Rhode Island, USA - AUG 27, 2014
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass. The color is a clear golden/amber with a finger and a half of thick foamy white head with some lacing left on the glass. The smell has a floral hop presence that has a nice mellow aroma. There is slight sunflower aroma here with hints of orange and tangerine in the nose. The taste has a nice earthy taste to it. There is a hop presence here but has more flavor than bitterness. There is more earthy flavors here that meld well with a sweetness that has grainy flavor that compliments some of the grass-like flavor. There is some hints of floral hops here towards the end but really quietly finishes with too much bitterness pushing back The feel of this beer is medium bodied but could even be described as light as it seems to swing back and forth between the two. With a dry, crisp feel this beer drinks similar to a pilsner.

355 ml bottle. Pours a clear copper colour with an average, frothy, off-white head that laces. Sweet aroma of citrus, caramel malt and hops. Sweet flavour of grapefruit and caramel malt with a dry, bitter, grassy hop finish. Medium body with a slick, oily texture and soft carbonation. Pretty good.

Elwood (3162) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - AUG 15, 2014
Serving: bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. Pours a dark copper color with a small white head. Soft citrus nose. A little on the sweet side with a decent grass and citrus bitterness. Fairly refreshing but not remarkable. Serviceable.

ben4321 (3916) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 16, 2014
Location: At the Bar Below, 6/4/14

Aroma: The nose is light and clean, some pale malts, herbal, and citrus hop notes
Appearance: It pours a copper color with a small off-white head and light lace
Flavor: The taste is along the same lines, light, balanced hop bitterness and sweetness
Palate: The body is light-medium, it has a solid mouthfeel, and drinks pretty easily
Overall Impression: Overall, I found this to be an okay APA. Drinkable, but hardly memorable. from an overall perspective, my notes don’t say much beyond that...

Bottle. Little out dated so I’d have liked to snag a fresher batch. Getting light citrus not much else. Decent head. Not much of a hop presence anymore. Would’ve loved to have gotten to this sooner.

BBB63 (6037) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUL 1, 2014
Bottle: Age has not been kind with major hop fade, very meh tasting. Light handed citric and grassy notes, some pepper but you cant really get a nice malt balance. Just seems to watered down and metallic. The session beer was more forceful. Another crap offering from the Baldwinsville NY A-B plant.

Bottle. Pours a mostly clear copper with ample off white head. Aroma is a blend of light malt and pine/grapefruit/citrus. Taste is a slightly bitter malt/hop. Bitter finish. Pretty decent APA here.
