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 (2213) - 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.

tricksta_p (3258) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - DEC 27, 2015
Bottle at home. Aroma is tropical fruits, grapefruit, pine resin, orange, mandarin, palt malt, some floral notes hops. Flavour is light sweet with an almost medium bitter finish. Body is medium. There’s a smooth delicate balance to this beer, it delivers on the fruity piney front and I dig the sweetish/bitter flavour. Delicious.

Alengrin (4340) - BELGIUM - DEC 18, 2015
West Coast IPA by the well-known Karl Strauss, with a nice origin story behind it. Thick, frothy, irregular but densely structured, egg-white, thickly lacing head over a cristal clear, warm ’old gold’ coloured beer with fierce sparkling rising up from the bottom of the glass; clouded and more ’brownish’ golden with deposit. Elegantly hop fragrant nose with hints of yellow grapefruit, chamomille, freshly cut grass and a lot of it, bitter orange peel, lemon zest, unmistakable pine needle, hint of sweetbread, peanuts, honey even, as well as a slight impression of stale sweat; in all, more ’herbal’ and plant- or spice-like than exotically fruit- or citrus-like, but quite elegant. Crisp and ’clear’ onset, subdued fruitiness with some hints of green apple and unripe plum, light salty touch effortlessly gliding into early hop bitterness gaining in strength towards the finish, stretching itself over a light malt backbone with a basic ’pale malt’ character, dryish with a very light bready edge somewhere; finish is all hops, bone dry, thoroughly bittering in a rooty, herbal, spicy, tonic water kind of way with some retronasal citrus peel and flower aromas, laying a resiny coating on the tongue and throat, and stopping anything that would remain from an already very subdued malt sweetness. Without this malt to soften the resiny, bittering hops, this particular offering could perhaps come across as a bit crude - one for the true bitter beer lover, I’d say. I like it, but I must admit I expected more malt body from a 7% ABV beer.
