Alright...Goose Island brews great beer...my reviews of said suds are consistently positive..."Ten Hills" is a total hang out pale ale..smooth...a little bit of a sweet finish...kinda like a carbonated Tootsie Roll...and if you eat with a decently spiced Chili...you won't go wrong

Not that I was beginning to develop BMC level disregard for anything NOT BCBS and variants from GI, but at the same time, I wasn't setting my expectations very high either. What I got in return was a beauty of APA. From it's near perfect lacing and deep copper to the floral yet a dash citrusy nose, this was setting up to be a nice treat. Taste followed the nose in that the floral nature came shining through with just a hint of spice. Maybe a tiny blast of tart trying to peak through the otherwise very well balanced malt profile. Finally, no cloying sweetness or lingering "off" bitterness in an amazingly dry finish. Excuse me now while I plan my trip back to TW to get more of these. Seriously, nice unexpected awesomeness from GI

A: Orange brown that has a dusty rose tint when held to the light. A soft tan head on top.

S: Citrus and light tropical fruits. A good amount of caramel and fruity sweetness in this. Something else in the back that I can't quite put my finger on.

T: The bitterness isn't too assertive, although it does linger through the finish. Citrus hop flavor that fades into a more floral bouquet, and a fruity finish.

M: Medium bodied, the carbonation is fine in size and abundant.

O: Overall good although nothing necessarily spectacular. I'd drink it again, but there are certainly other pale ales on the shelf I'd probably pick over it. Still, decent malt profile and I could see putting down a few of these during a summer BBQ.
