Pours amber-copper with thin white head. Light carbonation and slight haze.
Aroma: Balanced biscuit malt and citrus and floral hops. Slight resin and raisin.
Taste: A bit of caramel, with a grassy backbone. I also get a bit of plum, like from special b malt.
Mouthfeel: Malty with a resiny coat. Moderate carbonation.
Overall: Balanced and tasty - a nice pale ale.

Goose Island Ten Hills Pale Ale
Enjoyed on tap at Mozzaluna Pizzeria & Ristorante. This was served in a shaker pint, nicely chilled.
A) Nice looking copper brew. Good clarity... This had a finger of creamy head. Nice retention and several rings of lace were left clinging to the pint.
S) The aroma was a little more malt forward. Bready, with a good amount of caramel sweetness. Light amount of pine, and a hint of citrus.
T) Lightly roasted malt, biscuit, and caramel sweetness. A mild hop bitterness balances the flavor, and keeps things interesting. The hops is light grass and pine. A little citrusy too.
M) Lighter medium body with moderate carbonation. This was a nice refreshing beer, with a clean finish.
O) It seems like so many of the pale ales I've had recently have been pretty hopped up. Not that I'm complaining, but I really enjoyed this more malty approach. This had good balance, and excellent drinkability. If you're looking for a hop bomb, you might find this boring. I liked it... It was a nice little change of pace.
Paired with the mozzarella sticks....

whoa, pretty frothy head on a careful pour, easily 3 fingers and craggy, glowing orange hue with lots of carbonation in the glass, the head fades slightly but remains pretty strong, lacing is pretty sticky, near text book looking pale ale
kind of earthy/muddy/herbal hops, dry pine, malt blanket under the hops, pretty straightforward but good
just prickly carbonation, medium bodied (a little heavier than most pale ales), very smooth and refreshing, interesting hop ride, nothing to strong here just a metered out bitterness married with the malts - a good marriage at that, in some way this almost feels like a
juiced up ESB... ?
tasty, maybe middle of the road but it has a really nice array of flavors with no peaks - just enjoyment, nice beer

General: Found this "limited release" in a grocery store in CA, telling me that it really isn't a limited release. This was a 12 oz. bottle that I poured into my New Belgium tulip style glass to rate.
Appearance: This is much darker than a typical pale ale with a slightly off-white head. The head poured to a good 2 fingers and lingered for quite a while. There was also very nice lacing on the glass as it was consumed.
Aroma: There is a nice maltiness but also a big hop note. Right now, it's a mild, but that's because I had a Bear Republic Apex DIPA right before this (bad planning I know...). This is pretty balanced right now to me, I really like it.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium carbonation, it's not overtly carbonated on each sip. The beer seems a little thin but it's fitting for a pale ale. Nothing that is out of place in a pale.
Taste: This is pretty hoppy for a pale ale but the balance of this is pretty good. very floral flavors, pretty nice, my wife absolutely loves this one.
Overall: This is like you are eating a flower. My wife loves it, I'm not a huge fan of it. It's different and that's pretty cool. The fact that my wife enjoys it is a big plus for me, that way when I come into the house with a bunch of beer, I can tell her some of it is for here and point to the Goose Island.
