3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Clear dull amber with a foamy white head. Stewed caramel malt worty aroma, hops come across as basic pine sap and maraschino cherry syrup. Medium-light body, flabby and syrupy and sweet, seemingly unfinished. Malt that tastes like extract syrup and vegemite (but that could be the autolyzed yeast). Sour, thin, raw bitter finish. Hoppy pale ale is so easy to make these days, which makes this 90’s-era goopy mess so much worse.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Props for the Idaho connection. Hops lean towards the resinous side, woody and astringent. Amber body with adequate airy head. Slightly fruity nose, grapes, wood. Taste is malt (mildly sour) with some dry hop bitterness. A SN APA this is not....more of a sipper

I would consider this more of a "session" IPA, and it's great for that. Easy drinking and flavorful

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep amber color. Floral aroma. Hops borders ipa level but stays low enough to be pale ale quality. Tap

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!

4/12/15 Bottle - Nice copper brown pour, decent white pillow head, good carbonation. Wheat, citrus and hops aroma. Pleasant tasting beer, wheat and hops were good, citrus and other herbs were present and the beer had a good balance. Very smooth to drink, not a very strong beer. Overall good offering by Goose Island!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle pour at home, golden pour, hop aroma, little bite at the end of this one, nothing that impressive about this one, but still a good beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber body, bubbly soapy white head, some lacing.Light sweet malty aroma. Taste is lightly hoppy, sweet malts. Not a lot going on here. The bottle may not have been too fresh.
