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.

Love this beer! The aroma is the first thing i notice about all beers and this one satisfies the nose and entices you to take gulp after gulp. Major appreciation to Karl Strauss for their extensive hops usage per recipe. Always creating a unique taste.

tiong (4736) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUL 4, 2015
355 ml bottle from Bier-Deluxe

Bottled January 2015 :( - Pours yellowish orange with a smooth head. Aroma of grassy hops, grapefruit, citrus, lemon, herbal and fruity notes. Taste is crisp, hoppy and resinous with some grass, grapefruit, citrus and lemon. Finish is sweetish, piney and resinous with loads of citrus, grapefruit and lemon. Pretty generic but balanced and surprisingly tasty despite the bottle is not very fresh.

go4boy (5) - GERMANY - JUN 29, 2015 does not count
Bottle from Laufwerk (new bottle shop in Kaiserslautern, Germany). Drank it as a “roadie” from the bottle. Slight metallic taste up front, I would attribute to drinking from the bottle. Piney, resin aroma and taste. Finished dry and left bitter in good way. Overall outstanding, hoppy IPA.
