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.

Not terribly complex but there's some good flavors in there. Bitter, hoppy... a little too much rind IMO ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours clear copper with a tiny white head. Nice hoppy aroma. Tastes slightly bitter and the taste lingers in your mouth for a while. Full body, decent amount of carbonation. An average IPA.

Thereís a really deep caramel flavour with some undercurrents of citrus on the nose. The hops come through more clearly on the tongue with a strong streak of grapefruit down the middle and plenty of malt holding it up. Lovely.

Very subdued aroma. No citrus, no pine, no flowers. Good looking copper/amber color. High carbonation almost bordering on belgian like brett effervescence. However everyithing is unremarkable. Not a session beer that I would pick up again....

Appearance was a clearer orange with a medium head. Nose was pleasant and florally hoppy. The taste was smooth and hoppy but not overwhelmingly bitter. A nice daily drinking IPA. Glad I was in LA and happend to try it.

brinehart (212) - Colorado, USA - JUN 29, 2012
Clear orange with white head. Citrus on the nose, with a little fruit and caramel malt. Citrus hops flavor, but with a big grassy component. Creamy mouthfeel. Bitter balance detracts from drinkability.

Poured from a bottle. Cloudy gold. Small head. Thick lacing. Citrus aroma. Some pine in the taste. Not too bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
