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!

Clear copper with a thick foamy white head. Nose has plenty of leafy and fresh hoppy resin with a lovely sweet floral dank aroma. Bitter and lovely floral/fresh hop flavor with some perfumey herbal hop resins, a bit of pine, sweet nutty caramel undertones, and a semi-bitter bit mostly clean finish with a lasting floral aftertaste. Really swell!

UPDATED: MAY 13, 2014 Damn good pale ale. The orange body and the creamy head are enough to make your mouth water. This ale has such a lovely aromatic character, also. Tropical fruits with a touch of herbal freshness. The taste is crisp, clean, and balanced. Finish is dry and relatively short. It’s clear that Goose Island hasn’t lost their touch!

pours a copper color that is very filtered. there was a lot of smoke that popped out when i opened this beer. the head was medium and creamy. the aroma was pine, citrus, grapefruit, and some breadiness. the taste was the same and i felt like the aroma led this beer on as it were going to be very bitter but it is actually quite drinkable. you also pick up some citrus in the flavor up front as well. this is another amazing beer from goose island which i highly recommend.

This bottled brew from a grocery store poured a head of foamy finely sized off-white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a softly carbonated transparent dark copper orange colored body and a good lacing. The nice aroma was mild hop. The sharp crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a bitter hoppy aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of mild ale mild citrus oak and mild hops. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again.

Bottle. Pours a crystal clear amber color with a moderate off-white head on it. Nose is quite hoppy, with some great floral and grassy elements to it. Taste is super light and very slightly bitter. but tastes nice and fresh. Really light and clean taste. I like it.

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.

Transfer from BA review on 11-26-13- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a beautiful and clear deep amber color with tons of carbonation bubbles seen streaming up through the brew. Upon pouring there is a nice creamy and thick white head that sits atop the brew, with it very slowly fading over time to leave a great level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is a nice blend of hop and malt. A good cracker aroma along with a caramel sweetness create a base smell for the brew. With these smells comes a nice blend of hop aromas with a stronger grapefruit citrus hop and some aromas of a more herbal and pine nature. Rounding out the aromas are some light tropical fruit smells as well as an almost peppery smell, which when combine with the rest create a very nice aroma overall. Taste – The taste begins with a cracker and bready flavor mixed with a little bit of a caramel sweetness. Along with these more malty tastes are some flavors of a grapefruit and herbal hop flavor. The hops are light upfront with them growing a bit stronger more toward the end of the taste. The caramel fruit fades more toward the middle of the flavor, but is replaced by a light fruity flavor of a tangerine and light fruit flavor. The grapefruit and herbal flavors grow a bit stronger to the end and are joined by some hints of an pine flavor to leave a nice and smooth semi-sweet, malty, and nice hop blend taste to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel –The body of the beer is quite thick and creamy for only 6.2 % abv with a carbonation level that is on the average to slightly below average side. The thick creamy body and slightly lower carbonation are quite nice for accentuating the great hop flavors of the brew and make this one a very enjoyable drinker. Overall –This was a very enjoyable brew with a great feel, nice smooth taste profile, and very pleasant and easy drinking feel. I would like to see this made an average release instead of a limited. Rather tasty.

Just picked this up today at Krogers. I knew this would be decent based on how good their everyday ipa is. This is an excellent "everyday" pale ale Goose produced: clean, enticing hop bite, and drinkability are all excellent. If this was labeled as an ipa, you would have difficult saying it wasn’t. I wish this would be produced year round!
