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.

Delicate IPA. Soft citrus/pine nose. Well made, but soft. Some citrus and pine, well balanced with caramel and toffee. Easy drinking.

phredrik (1011) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), DENMARK - APR 13, 2012
12 oz bottle from a friend. Light amber pour with a small head. Aroma is very nice with fruity hops - pine, grapefruit, mango, pineapple and a very nice maltiness, crusty and crispy. Taste is nice and bitter, grapefruit, pineapple, nice crispy maltiness - I really like the malt profile in this one. Good stuff

I had this on draft at Karl Strauss in Costa Mesa. This IPA has good grapefruit and floral notes that are nicely balanced by the malts.

Bottle. Dirty gold color with a thin off-white head on top. Caramel and resin dominate the scent with toffee and biscuity notes joining in. Not bad at all but I wasn’t overly thrilled with this one. There’s some sharp bitter citrus hops but the malt bill seems too heavy, with quite a bit of grain and caramel. Dry and bitter in the finish with a lot of lingering malt.

This beer reminded me why i don’t chew on grapefruit peel. They’re bitter, without any citrus flavor left. The beer wasn’t terribly bitter though. And I’m sure its high in vitamin C too, right?

mkel07 (4035) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - FEB 18, 2012
355ml bottle. Great IPA and a good story behind the name. Lots of piney citrus hop notes and flavours with a full hopped up mouthfeel. Mild bitterness with lots of pine on the palate.

Bottle shared by a friend. Hazy gold/amber pour with a medium white head. Nose of grainy malt, earthy hop and a bit of sweetness. Grainy malt flavor with some earthy hops. Meh.
