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 youíll find the intriguing balance of flavors in this beer to be truly unparalleled. Cheers!

This say "limited release" on the carton. This beer has a lot of characteristics of a Goose Island, more so with the Honkers ale that I drink often. Some light fruity characteristics on the nose.The flavors present a bit of spiciness with a bit of honey and citrus. Slightly dry and salty on the palate with a buttery finish. Not bad at all but not something I would consider top shelf.

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2015 Sample On tap at the irish mile. Hazy golden shade. Aroma of gross Budweiser bread and blandness. Flavor is caramel malt and basic off-pine hopping you would fine in sub-par ipas. Lighter to medium body. Iíll pass on this inbev hop Product. Shit crop yo

tekstr1der (41) - New Hampshire, USA - JAN 20, 2015
Clear copper pour with thin, clingy white head. Aromas of citrus and plums. Hop flavor starts, with malt becoming apparent in the middle. Finishes with a lingering semi-sweet herbal flavor. Pretty good stuff!

Ibrew2or3 (7158) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JAN 18, 2015
12oz bottle pours with a clear copper body that supports a thin off white head. The aroma offers up kind of a hoppy mix pine and a thin sliver of sweet citrus and apricot. It then softly rolls into a bit of roasted malts and a biscuit malt like sensation. Interesting. The taste starts with a pleasing hop bitterness thatís supported by a malty base where thereís a pine hoppiness blending with malts, a dash of roasted malts and a biscuit malt nuance. The flavor stays that way right into the finish.

Thechasm442 (357) - Wilmington, Illinois, USA - JAN 18, 2015
Bottle to a pint glass. The beer pours a clear burnt orange with a fingers worth of white head that leaves ok lacing. Aroma is tropical fruit, pine, citrus, and some sweet caramel. Taste is pin and citrus up front. It quickly turns into a juicy tropical fruit forward beer with some caramel flavors as well. Mouthfeel is sort of light and the flavors are not all that strong in this beer, but what is there is good. Itís refreshing as well. Pretty good.
