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.

No retention and medium lacing. Smells of slight sweet malt and hop resin. Very faint. Tastes of grapefruit, mango and bitter hops. Medium bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Got caramel mixed with easy going citrus in aroma. Nice malty taste. Can taste grapefruit. Resinous. Maybe even biscuit. Nice bitterness. Gets better as it warms. Quality beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: JUL 31, 2013 On tap at Applebees Hazard Center. Smells awesome but too bitter in the finish. An ok IPA.

This beer reminded me why i don’t chew on grapefruit peel. They’re bitter, without any citrus flavor left. The beer wasn’t terribly bitter though. And I’m sure its high in vitamin C too, right?

Decent IPA on tap. Moderate hops - some pine notes. Decent brew - moderate mouthfeel. Not bad but not memorable.

GlassBrass440 (289) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 16, 2015
Pours a gold color just off of clear. Short lasting white head. Decent amount of pine and citrus hops in the nose. Flavor follows with much the same but with an alcohol component that doesn’t quite fit in. The bitterness is more astringent than bitter, per se. Still, a nice beer despite it not quite gelling together.

minihame2 (270) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 3, 2012
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.

There’s 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.

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
