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.

Very solid IPA, pretty happy with this find. Taste is strong but fairly balanced with lingering bitterness, fruity. Would like to have more in the future.

Bread and oats on the aroma. Pours a light brown with a medium sized foam. Taste is a quick, moderate bitter hops with a faint caramel and doughy malt in the back. Overall, sad excuse for an IPA. Only offers a quick bitter hop bite with pathetic malts in the back. D rating.

I thought it was a decent enough.ipa that i had 2. Not abrasive in any sense. Rather solidly dri.kable.

Bottle at friend’s place. He got this one for free--good thing. Not much going on here, nose is kinda of like unfermented wort--he said grape nuts and he was right. Flavor is bitter up front, a little grapefruit. Backend is kind of skunky. Meh.

KyotoLefty (6145) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 28, 2012
Draught at LAX. Medium copper. Decent citrus nose, grass, light caramel. Flavor is somewhat sweet, with decent hops and a bit too much caramel. Noce grassy hop finish. Decent, not inspiring.

ACHops (642) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 23, 2012
On tap @ airport in San Diego. Pours dark golden with thick head. Aroma is strong pine hops. Taste is big, bitter piney hops. Solid caramel malt body. Once the bitterness fades there are some nice faint floral and citrus hop flavors. Overall a little out of balance. The Tower 20 DIPA is not nearly as bitter and actually more balanced.

saxo (13796) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 17, 2012
Tap @ the brewpub, San Diego. Nice head with good duration. Color is golden. Aroma and taste are bitter hops, malt, pine and has a long pleasantly bitter finish.

bmeup (508) - Ormeau, AUSTRALIA - JUL 17, 2012
From DM. Clear Orange/copper in colour, foamy white head. Caramel and strong hop aroma. Bitter pine and spice and sweet caramel taste that is a little rough, but otherwise quite OK.

Davros (1859) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 16, 2012
Pours amber with a lasting head. Nose shows fruity and floral hops. Orange blossom, peach, apricot all show, along with a fruity confectionery note. Similar flavours: sweet, confectionery-like fruit, sweet clean malt and a bite of alcohol amongst the assertive bitterness in the finish. Carbonation seems excessive.

355ml bottle. Dark orange in colour with a nice white head. Great hop aroma. A good and strong hop bitterness on the finish.
