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.

Rex_Remes (76) - Bonyhad, HUNGARY - MAY 12, 2015
(bottle, 12oz). Aroma: nice hoppy nose, can smell the Cascade hops. grapefruit. A bit herbally/soapy. Appearance: good looking beer. Medium amber in color (a bit lighter than expected). Light head that does linger and holds on to the glass. Quite bitter. Flavors of hops, grass. Creamy and oily on the palate. An above average IPA. Good points: Hoppy nose. Areas for improvement: More complexity in flavors. It seemed to be mostly a bitter beer with green/grass/herb flavor and hard to discern much else.

One2remeber (174) - Jacksonville, Florida, USA - MAY 11, 2015
Bottle code 12:04, 0705. Light body, crispy malts like a weak pale ale. Light hops, some pine, lemon citrus. Not too much flavor going on. Clean brew. Bland, would not recommend to someone expecting a typical West Coast IPA from San Diego, put in same class of a Red Hook IPA.

Bloke (18) - Wei Hai, CHINA - APR 6, 2015
This was example of another IPA flooding the market that doesn’t match my standards for an IPA. It wasn’t nearly hoppy enough, lacked bitterness and tasted more like a Pale ale. Perhaps it was disadvantaged by the fact it was being tasted while at a bar with 250 beers and I was working my way through a few but that’s when the top beers stand out.

GlassBrass440 (273) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 16, 2015
Pours a gold color just off of clear. Short lasting white head. Decent amount of pine and citrus hops in the nose. Flavor follows with much the same but with an alcohol component that doesn’t quite fit in. The bitterness is more astringent than bitter, per se. Still, a nice beer despite it not quite gelling together.

721Lance (82) - Oceanside Ca, California, USA - MAR 11, 2015
Good standard IPA, not too big on hops but ok, as it would distract from mellow malts. Defiantly bitter, hoppy very nice example of a west coast IPA.

Aroma shows a very pleasant lemon hoppy aroma, the palate is very clean, light. Shows great length, but all the while drying, which encourages you to the next mouthful. Very enjoyable and easy to drink.
