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.

Niksko (337) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 1, 2013
12floz bottle into a tulip. Pours a lovely golden yellow with a finger of bubbly white head. Nose is really fruity and delicious. I get a really strong mandarin citrus component, as well as a bit of a floral note, some peach and just a hint of sweetness. On the palate you get a big hit of that pine and grapefruit from the Chinook, a bit of bread, some sweet caramel, just a touch of the mandarin from the nose, and a nice bitter finish that lingers. Body is medium and mouthfeel is pretty rich. Leaves some decent lacing. Great balance, but I would have liked more of the aroma to carry through to the flavour.

UPDATED: JUL 31, 2013 On tap at Applebees Hazard Center. Smells awesome but too bitter in the finish. An ok IPA.

Not bad at all. Pours well with a deep amber colour.nicely carbonated with a pale frothy head. Worth a try.

danlo (1166) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2013
355ml bottle. Pours a clear orange amber colour with a frothy off-white head and aroma of crystal malt, caramel, lemony citrus. Taste is malt caramel with sweet tropical fruit mango, hoppy grapefruit citrus & woody pine bitterness. Slightly oily mouth feel, medium bodied soft carbonation, residual sweetness through to a dry bitter finish. Quite OK IPA.

Une blonde claire, coiffée d’une mousse dense et qui persiste un temps, en dessinant une dentelle baveuse. Des arômes typiques du style, c’est-à-dire de conifères et/ou d’agrumes et ce, assez faiblement. Son goût est plus prononcé, nous laissant une amertume sèche en bouche. Vite oubliée.(673-060613)

DavidWoodruff (390) - Windsor, California, USA - JUN 7, 2013
Aroma: Tropical fruit with a little diacetyl. Appearance: Orange/gold with a small cream colored head. Flavor: Butterscotch and bread with medium hop bitterness. Palate: Medium to full bodied, medium carbonation. Overall: A pleasant drinking IPA, but a tad tame, as it were.

Golden in color from the tap with light floral, citrus aromas. Taste is nicely balanced with light malt flavors and hops throughout the whole drink. My favorite at Disneyland!!

Pours with a good head and great effervescence. Nice bitterness, but could do with a tad more malt. Well priced though, and sessionable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dresden (848) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - APR 29, 2013
Bottle in a glass. Copper pour with a foamy offwhite head. Aroma of grapefruit and pine. Not overly bitter, quite malt forward. Not very "west coast" but certainly a fine beer.
