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, tasted side-by-side with Goose’s regular IPA because, why not? Poured into identical Stella tulip glasses, the Ten Hills is immediately a darker orange than the IPA. Both put up a spongy IPA head that just peeks over the rim, then leaves lacy webbing. Ten Hills has an orangy fresh hop note. My IPA bottles are getting older, but they have always shot for the more earthy and bitter English hop profile. Taste has some honey sweetness, broken up by prickly bubbles that help to drive the hop bitterness home. I don’t get the claimed herbal notes, but the citrus is there, even if mostly in the nose. I take it as a sign that the Goose is doing well at retail, if it’s finally bottling a variant pale ale like other smaller beermakers.

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.

12 oz bottle from Giant Eagle in Pittsburgh. The hops really come through but not much else. Pretty basic all around.

Listigovers (414) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 27, 2015
Huge sweet hop aroma, tropical. Copper with off white head. Not overly bitter, lots of malt to balance the hops. Rich malty flavors, medium bodied, soft round mouth feel. Pretty delicious.

Bork (387) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - MAR 25, 2015
Pale ale balancing well close to the India border with a rather heavy pine bitterness that is too perfumed. Flavorful but out of balance.

It pours an amber color with a small white head. It has a fresh hop aroma with some floral aromas. It has a caramel and bread flavor with a mild hop bitterness. This is a very drinkable beer.

On tap at Fat Bob’s in Buffalo, NY. Never heard of this. Light brown pour, little light bubbly head. Dry. Decent malt backbone but some hops in it too. Kinda earthy, hard to define. Not bad.

Bottle poured an amber color with a thin coating of white head. Beer has mild hops, a fair bit of malt for a pale ale, and a lingering finish.
