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.

Bottle. Pours an Earthy Red Colour. Aroma is of Sweet Citrus. Taste. Can taste some Piney bitterness with also notes of Citrus followed by a candy sweetness. Overall. A good beer, certainly not one of the best, but still worth buying again.

Golden in color from the tap with light floral, citrus aromas. Taste is nicely balanced with light malt flavors and hops throughout the whole drink. My favorite at Disneyland!!

rich916 (84) - Rancho Cordova, California, USA - JUN 27, 2012
Bottle-22oz.: Pours a clear copper head that produces more of a film rather than lacing on the inside of the glass. Aroma is faint with orange peel and malt. Flavor is more sweet than bright and is a bit muddled. Nothing crisp.Nothing really stands out. Too much caramel. Medium mouthfeel. Sticky, average carbonation.

knewell (73) - Alabama, USA - JAN 21, 2014
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 IPA’s until recently. This beer has a good taste that is not over powering, but enjoyable.

Bootlegger007 (70) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 3, 2014
Cloudy appearance with a small white head, heavy floral aroma, very hoppy, powerful tropical fruit flavours, medium body, tangy fruity sensation in the mouth followed by a good lingering bitter aftertaste.

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 can’t make up ti’s mind between being a sweet and hoppy IPA or a full fledged dessert beer. It’s a jack of all trades, but a master of none. R.I.P. Stargazer.

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

mezr (58) - California, USA - MAY 5, 2012
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.

monoroc (49) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - SEP 16, 2014
Pours cloudy orange to golden color with a minimal head. Aroma is malt, caramel, oranges. Taste is rather dry and crisp, thin malt body. Bitterness is above medium, rather broad and long lasting. Perfect carbonation. Good IPA, but the malt body is lacking a bit.

adeezhop (42) - port jeff sta, Alabama, USA - APR 24, 2013
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.
