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.

Fashawn (583) - ITALY - JUN 11, 2015
Aroma carico di fiori d’arancia, molto dolce sulle prime. scorza di agrumi,parecchio pompelmo, ed un po’ di pino nel sottofondo. Attacco di pane dolce, watery come tessitura ma non slegata. Amaro da scorza di agrumi, leggermente il pino. Un po’ di ritorno alcolico, l’unico difetto di una birra che piace e si lascia bere. Molto ben fatta. Carbonatazione ai minimi termini, liscia, ben bilanciata.

imaragingbull (572) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 30, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 5, 2012 Initial rating: 30th Mar, 2010. On tap at the Karl Strauss Restaurant/Bar at Universal City. Served in a typical tumbler glass this beer presents orange with a less than average head. Aroma is floral and citric; quite pleasant. Carbonation is less than expected, however this allows the yeast profile to shine through too much in my opinion. There is an acceptable amount of bitterness to this beer, however the yeast aftertaste present does not leave a satisfying finish. Would try this beer again in the bottle instead, but not in a hurry. Re-Rate 5th Oct. 2012. Bottle from dans. bb June 2013. Decent off white head and resilient lace. Floral, citrus and pine aromas with a touch of grain. Medium-high carbonation, medium body - lightly chewy malts with a generous bitterness on the finish. Just like the tap example, the lingering yeasty veg remains amongst of touch of toast and toffee. A bit better in the bottle.

Sask89 (508) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - SEP 1, 2013
Taster at La Jolla location. Pours a clear yellow colour with a big frothy white head. Aroma of grassy and citrus hops with some light bread and caramel malts. Taste is slightly sweet but mostly bitter, though not greatly bitter like I would like for an IPA. Medium body, good carbonation, and smooth on the palate. Good beer, alright IPA overall.

BlazerT (481) - POLAND - APR 22, 2016
Bottle. Sensoric. Golden, little hazy with medium to big, white head. Good head retention and lacing. Nice citrus (mainly grapefruit) and floral aroma, als some touch of tropical fruits. Taste is medium bitter, broken by biscuity sweetness. Medium body, creamy texture, average carbonation, finish is long, bitter and semi-dry. In overall nice IPA, refreshing with long and bitter aftertaste, very solid in its’ style.
