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.

Draft. Pours clear amber with decent off white head. Taste is nice citrus orange and grapefruit with equal parts light sweet caramel malts. Quite sessionable. Lingering sweet citrus finish. Medium to slightly slick mouth and high carbonation. Dig it this pale.

Not too bad. A bit of funky hops but that’s about it. Nit much balance or complex flavors. Bitter, grass, rubber flavor. Lacked any malt character. Probably wouldn’t get again.

Tallahassee, Fl - Publix Supermarket - Blairstone - 12 oz bottle. Sparkling medium copper pour, decent off-white head that leaves a thin coat of lacing. Aroma has some doughy accents, a hint of light spruce. Flavor is crisp with some light citrus bitterness, a touch of bit of toffee, some yeasty bready notes. Mouthfeel has a nice textured feel to it. Pretty solid.

12oz bottle from Brix in Omaha, bottled 07Nov13. Clear orange amber with a two finger off-white head, good retention. Aroma has some sweaty Cascade citrus pine and light green grassy notes, touch of toasty malt behind. Flavor follows, not too much malt sweetness at all. Seems like maybe they used an English yeast? Mainly though, just the sweaty citrus grass. Dry finish, bitterness peaked at a 3, lightly earthy. Moderate carbonation with a medium light body. Not bad despite the dominant Cascade presence.

3.3
sawbuck (790) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - NOV 24, 2013
Nice piney hop aroma on the nose, hints of citrus and orange. Darker than anticipated color, orange amber with a nice white head. Sweet malt is the star here, rich, full and hints of caramel. That taste is quickly followed by a peppery, piney bitterness of hops. Finishes long, but not overbearing. Medium palate. Solid offering.

3.8
boxofrane (2559) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 22, 2013
Bottle from Exton beverage. Pours clear copper with a medium sized off white head. The aroma has a nice floral notes, a nice piney presence, and plenty of orange and grapefruit. The taste is fairly hoppy with some sweet grapefruit, orange, maybe a touch of a tropical fruitiness. There is a nice light bitterness and excellent malty balance. Very nice, balanced beer.

Pours a clear, dark orange, light brown color with a fluffy head, and lots of lacing. CItrus hop aroma with a carmel malts. Taste is sweet malt, citrus, and mint. Light, to medium body, lively carbination, and a somewhat bitter finish. Overall not bad, and a bargain at $8 a six-pack.

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!
