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.

The aroma is fresh and grassy and the flavour is more subtly bitter than most IPA’s.

Very solid IPA, pretty happy with this find. Taste is strong but fairly balanced with lingering bitterness, fruity. Would like to have more in the future.

This taste like sudsy dishwater and salt. I rather be hit with a tire iron than ever drink this again. The aftertaste is that of mucus and regret. Gross. There is a particular artisan habitat that the IPA lives in, and this Karl Strauss beer is not it. Ugh. I want to bleach my tongue.

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.

This beer reminded me why i don’t chew on grapefruit peel. They’re bitter, without any citrus flavor left. The beer wasn’t terribly bitter though. And I’m sure its high in vitamin C too, right?

mattyhennessy (300) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - DEC 22, 2013
Brown in colour. Thick foamy head that pours way to large. When poured into a glass the head is almost as high as the liquid. Even out of the bottle the head spills over the neck. Strong floral hop flavour and aroma. Slight bitter aftertaste. Lots of citrus and pine

Decent IPA on tap. Moderate hops - some pine notes. Decent brew - moderate mouthfeel. Not bad but not memorable.

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

Good hoppy aroma, floral and piney. Pours murky copper with a thin white head. Good flavor, well balanced with a long caramel finish.
