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.

UPDATED: FEB 25, 2014 Golden amber colour with thin white head and some lacing. Fruity hops aroma of grapefruit, grass and pine forest on the nose, but is perhaps restrained by a strong malt presence. Thin to medium oily body. A little sweet caramel maltiness on the tongue with a touch of spice, followed by a pleasantly strong bitterness that makes for a nice finish. This is a good beer, but perhaps a bit too strong on malt to let the hops shine through.

Pours a golden color and has a foamy head. Has a strong, but not over powering, aroma of hops, citrus and spice. Taste is much of the same as the aroma. I have always been more of a dark beer drinker and did not really like IPAís until recently. This beer has a good taste that is not over powering, but enjoyable.

JW32Hoops (70) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 14, 2010
12 oz bottle poured into pint glass. Pours a deep cherry amber with no head whatsoever. Aroma is sticky sweet fruitiness which continues throughout this indulgent caramel hop flavor. This IPA seems conflicted to me, like it canít make up tiís mind between being a sweet and hoppy IPA or a full fledged dessert beer. Itís a jack of all trades, but a master of none. R.I.P. Stargazer.

Poured from a 20 oz bottle. Pale gold color and crystal clear. A medium, white head rises quickly and then dissipates. Nice lacing. Mild pine and citrus notes. Light bitter, not an aggressive IPA. Soft carbonation and medium body. Enjoyable and easy to drink, but not memorable.

Bloody great American IPA. Great complex aroma, firm hoppy bitterness and surprisingly sessional. Goes well with spicy asian food.

On tap at LAX not the greatest I have had, but good enough certainly not something I would seek out at home at the bevmart but the best beer in the airport for sure. Again, not a stand out but a def not a dud. Decent for sure.

This is the ideal IPA. Floral, hoppy and refreshing. Great golden body with a almost too long of a lasting head. Great summer bbq beer.

A nice I P A that's readily available everywhere in SoCal. Citrus notes in aroma and VERY hoppy with beautiful lacing. Not quite in the class of Stone I P A or Racer 5, but still very good. Enjoy!

Sap colored, good head & lacing. Fruity scent and slight musty/fruity taste. Great packaging and good looking as a gift beer to bring to a party.
