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!

Deep orange pour with solid off-white topper. Sweet nose. An earthy hop aroma with a dash of citrus zest. I’m down with the flavor of this guy. Not the huge, fruity, pine bomb that we’re all accustomed to these days, but a solid representation of the American ale. Citrusy and herbal with subtle caramel and resin notes. Well balanced and pleasantly bitter. Lively and smooth. Enjoyed this one a lot more than I anticipated.

hombrepalo (1758) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 21, 2014
12oz pour. Poured clear amber, nice white fluffy head, and decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is herbal, citrusy, quite hoppy... some malts in there too. Nice balanced taste; Sweet malts and grain combined with a very nice citrus and hop notes.

Crisp and clear with grapefruit and pine, plus caramel sweetness offsetting the light bitterness. Good but nothing special.

cheap (3806) - Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 19, 2014
Amber colored with a medium thick rocky head from a bottle. Typical sweeter hop aroma. Taste is trying to be impy ipa but never gets there. Chewing on fruity green grapefruit rinds. The finish also approaches ipa in the end. Perhaps a little more sharp than the typical APA. Yes, quite bitter on the finish.

markducommun (101) - Wilmette, Illinois, USA - APR 16, 2014
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 (2401) - 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.

VTHopHead (1505) - 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...

solidfunk (3016) - 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.

EithCubes (4638) - 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.
