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.

fletchfighters (1324) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 15, 2012
A-- Poured a dark gold color. Half finger of off white head. Shows just a bit of carbonation. S-- Somewhat muted grapefruit smell. Quite soft. Good carmel backbone, as it warms up the grapefruit does open up more. T-- Good grapefruit bite to this. Some pine and carmel as well. M-- Medium carbonation and medium body. Decent sized grapefruit finish to this. More pine in the front of the palate. A little acidic going down. Creamy and lively, with a little prickly added in. D-- Gets bigger as it warms up. Not a bad IPA at all. Could have a couple easily. Not one of the elites out there but very workable and can not complain.

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.

Thisis12ptfont (1051) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - JUL 30, 2012
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.
