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.

olio (8203) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 6, 2015
355 ml bottle. BBE 06.01.2016.
Pours clear golden color with a large white head. Piney, grassy aroma, mandarin and orange peel too, floral hops and faint resin. Grapefruity, citric flavor, subtle caramel sweetness, some hops, pale malts and distant toffee notes. Juicy fruitiness on the aftertaste. Very easy to drink, a decent juicy IPA.

Draught at LAX. Medium copper. Decent citrus nose, grass, light caramel. Flavor is somewhat sweet, with decent hops and a bit too much caramel. Noce grassy hop finish. Decent, not inspiring.

marcus (8001) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 22, 2009
This amber ale poured with a decent off-white head and a toffee aroma. There is a substantial caramel malt flavor that is a bit harsh, and some pine and citrus caused by the hopping. This is a drinkable beer, but not especially satisfying.

"a biscuit malt forward ipa that is not quite what i was goin for. thought it was the citrus hopped Stargazer IPA and bought a sixer by mistake. well made for what it is i suppose, but the hops need to have a bigger role. Pretty weak even brewery fresh."

35,5 cl bottle @ Sankt Hans Tasting, Ulfborg Aroma has tropical fruits and some sweetish fruit juice. Flavour has strong grapefruity tones, tropical fruits and some mild alcohol tones. I like the aggressive hops here. Delicious.
