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.

phredrik (1024) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), DENMARK - APR 13, 2012
12 oz bottle from a friend. Light amber pour with a small head. Aroma is very nice with fruity hops - pine, grapefruit, mango, pineapple and a very nice maltiness, crusty and crispy. Taste is nice and bitter, grapefruit, pineapple, nice crispy maltiness - I really like the malt profile in this one. Good stuff

varanid99 (1006) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 19, 2014
Light amber pour with thin, fizzy head. Citrus, floral hop aroma with light malt as well. Taste is malty, citrus, nice bitterness which fades fairly quickly. Not bad

cmonster (1000) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 11, 2011
Pours hazy orange with a short head. Cereal and floral nose. Bitter flavor. Medium body, astringent finish. No sweetness and missing complexity and balance. Decent IPA but nothing special.

Naven (1000) - Poway, California, USA - APR 5, 2009
Bottle, from Henry’s. $6.50 a six pack. This is a new release, apparently taking the place of Stargazer. Looks nice, smells nice, but the flavor is rather dull. It’s hoppy, but it lacks the brightness and fruitiness I crave in an IPA. For whatever reason, Karl Strauss bottled beer has never impressed me like their draft beers. My guess is that this is really good on tap. As it is now, it’s just OK.

fkoolen (981) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 31, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 31, 2016 Bottle @ cafe Frape, Maastricht. Cloudy light golden, white foamy head that leaves a nice lacing. Light citrus, spruce, resin, grassy hop profile, grainy and sweet malty base, medium dry and bitter finish. Firm body, low-medium carbonation.

Dervock (967) - 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.

J_man (924) - Tustin, California, USA - MAR 3, 2010
Reddish-orange in color with a white foamy head and a noticable but not overpowering hop aroma. Good bitter, citrusy hop presence balanced by a smooth malty body. Definitely an IPA but not an overpowering one by any means. Good food-friendly IPA from a great brewery!

Nero55 (919) - Wisconsin, USA - FEB 1, 2015
Bottle. Hazy golden with small off white head. Aroma of resinous and grapefruit hops. Light body, resinous and grapefruit hop bitterness, not much malt notes, and a bitter finish.

Sdaniel90 (915) - Mexico City, MEXICO - APR 17, 2016
Bottle, 355ml. Hazy golden with a frothy offwhite head. Floral hoppy and roasted aromas. Medium to robust bodied with moderate to fizzy carbonation. Dry and heavily astringent. Medium sweet fruity and malty character into a medium to heavy bitter hoppy finish. Very pleasant.

BeerChaser0078 (909) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 29, 2012
Bottle 7%. Clear golden amber pour with a lasting foamy white head. Nose has notes of pine, grapefruit, lemon, lime and caramel. Creamy mouthfeel with moderate to high carbonation and a big bitter finish that lingers. Taste is very piney, with the fruit notes much more subdued and a solid malt profile that has hints of nuts, wood and caramel. Overall a fairly decent IPA, a little unexciting, bland even, but still quite drinkable.
