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.

lusikka (7595) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 17, 2012
355 ml bottle. Rated on 16.10.2012.
Pours a copper orange colour without a head. Aroma of grains, metals and some fruitiness. Flavour of harsh grainy malts, grassy hops, metals and some alcohol. Harsh on the palate with a bitter grainy finish. Alcohol comes through in the finish as well. Not very good.

Bomber pours clear copper with light tan head. The aroma is pretty full with lots of malts, caramel malts and nuttiness with echoes of pine hops. I seem to have gotten an old bottle. The taste has aged blunted pine hop flavor and pine hop bitterness. The malts have made deep in-roads into the flavor. I need to try this again with a fresh bottle.

"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."

Sledutah (6184) - Utah, USA - OCT 23, 2009
12oz bottle. Pours slightly cloudy, medium copper with a creamy white head. I light lace in the glass that dissipated quickly. Aroma is bitter citrus and piney. Taste is what you would expect from the aroma. It finishes with a bitter malt flavor that leaves an antiseptic taste on my tongue.

Had this one at Disney’s California Adventure. Poured a hazy golden orange color with a small white head. Aroma was light grapefruit, some pine resin notes. Flavor was light hoppy citrus notes, with a light malt character to it. Okay.
