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.

Lothore (557) - California, USA - MAR 29, 2014
A- Pours a deep, cloudy orange hue with a 1.5 finger, frothy head that fades with quite a bit of lacing. S- Very grainy, caramel, slight hints of grassiness. T- Starts off very bready which leads into a wave of hops and a nice, crisp, bitter finish. M- Medium bodied with plenty of carbonation. D- A refreshing IPA. Doesn’t stand out a whole lot but I would revisit.

bmeup (537) - Ormeau, AUSTRALIA - JUL 17, 2012
From DM. Clear Orange/copper in colour, foamy white head. Caramel and strong hop aroma. Bitter pine and spice and sweet caramel taste that is a little rough, but otherwise quite OK.

Dervock (513) - Emu plains, AUSTRALIA - DEC 27, 2013
Bottle - pours hazy gold with a big white head. Lots of flowery, citrus hops, decent amount of stone fruit, almost a vanilla cream to it. Taste is overpowered by a sharp bitterness up front, dominates anything else that is in there. Mouthfeel is creamy.

GuideDogSaint (513) - Xiamen, CHINA - OCT 6, 2014
12oz bottle from Tasty Life, Xiamen. Pours hazy golden orange with a thin white head. Aroma is resinous pine, not sure there’s any citrus. Bitter finish. OK but too much pine for me.

doboy (424) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - JAN 9, 2014
Pours a dark amber, cloudy, with a sweet malty and hoppy aroma. Head is minimal but laces on the edge. Malty flavor with mild hop overtones in the mouth. A bit thin. Aftertaste is ok. I was expecting a bigger beer here.

Sask89 (418) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - SEP 1, 2013
Taster at La Jolla location. Pours a clear yellow colour with a big frothy white head. Aroma of grassy and citrus hops with some light bread and caramel malts. Taste is slightly sweet but mostly bitter, though not greatly bitter like I would like for an IPA. Medium body, good carbonation, and smooth on the palate. Good beer, alright IPA overall.

DavidWoodruff (410) - 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.
