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.

brokensail (14042) - San Leandro, California, USA - MAY 11, 2010
A: The pour is a pretty lookin’ copper color with a fluffy white head and sticky sheets of lacing. S: Quite a bready nose for a San Diego brewed IPA. The hop character is piney and floral without much of the citrus that we’re all so fond of. T: Like the nose would indicate, this does not seem to be an overly hoppy IPA. The piney bitterness is the primary contribution, but like the nose, bready malts really dominate here. M: The body is medium with a somewhat mild level of carbonation for an IPA, maybe even a bit "flat". D: Certainly not one of the better San Diego IPAs, but for an average brewpub, it’s not too shabby.

Oakes (13961) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 6, 2011
Hazy amber with a thin head. Woody, earthy, chewy malts on the nose. Earthy and woody hoppiness on the tongue, with crystal malt. OK balance and a classic California IPA style.

bhensonb (12959) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 13, 2009
Bottle from BevMo. Pours rather copper with a decent white head. Aroma is strongly grapefruit/citrus. Medium plus body with creamy carbonation. Flavor is grapefruit/citrus. Malt - noticeable when the hop diminishes. It’s quite bitter, and some floral hop shows up in the finish. Which is quite bitter. I’d say this is a seriously underrated IPA.

Draft. Poured a clear copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate sour citrus aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bitter flavor with a medium bitter finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.
