COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mission Beach, the late 1980s. Amid a sea of neon bikinis, Tower 10 marked the spot where two college grads and a 75 year-old master brewer drew up plans for the first local craft brewery in San Diego since Prohibition. Named in honor of our first good idea, Tower 10 IPA is brewed to inspire the next one.

Tower 10 IPA boasts hops from beginning to end, and everywhere in between. We fill the brew kettle to the brim with assertive Chinook hops, giving the beer its intense grapefruit and pine flavors that linger through its dry finish. After fermentation, we dry hop with a blend of Cascade and Centennial hops for a floral citrus aroma. A touch of lightly kilned caramel malts make Tower 10 a well balanced, full flavor IPA.

A nice I P A that's readily available everywhere in SoCal. Citrus notes in aroma and VERY hoppy with beautiful lacing. Not quite in the class of Stone I P A or Racer 5, but still very good. Enjoy!

Good balance for first 1/3, but the bitterness come strong later.should be nice to drink when hot and thirsty. And not to wait until its get to the room temperature.

Lothore (452) - California, USA - MAR 29, 2014
A- Pours a deep, cloudy orange hue with a 1.5 finger, frothy head that fades with quite a bit of lacing. S- Very grainy, caramel, slight hints of grassiness. T- Starts off very bready which leads into a wave of hops and a nice, crisp, bitter finish. M- Medium bodied with plenty of carbonation. D- A refreshing IPA. Doesn’t stand out a whole lot but I would revisit.
