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.

willisread (2171) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 17, 2016
Bottle from AA. Lovely nose with grapefruit, mango, and pineapple dominating. Average carbonation, mouthfeel is a little oily with a medium to medium light body. Astringently bitter with some burned plastic on the finish. Also quite boozy for the style. Maybe needs some more malt to balance out the hops. Wonderful nose though. Nowhere near the quality of their Mosaic session.
