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.

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.

Sledutah (7027) - 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.

Bottle shared by a friend. Hazy gold/amber pour with a medium white head. Nose of grainy malt, earthy hop and a bit of sweetness. Grainy malt flavor with some earthy hops. Meh.

tiong (6450) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUL 4, 2015
355 ml bottle from Bier-Deluxe

Bottled January 2015 :( - Pours yellowish orange with a smooth head. Aroma of grassy hops, grapefruit, citrus, lemon, herbal and fruity notes. Taste is crisp, hoppy and resinous with some grass, grapefruit, citrus and lemon. Finish is sweetish, piney and resinous with loads of citrus, grapefruit and lemon. Pretty generic but balanced and surprisingly tasty despite the bottle is not very fresh.

Idiosynkrasie (6421) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 15, 2015
355ml bottle. Cloudy, orangey golden colour with average, frothy to creamy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Hoppy aroma with fruity hints of mango and peach, a herbal touch. Taste is bitter hoppy, hints of mango and peach, a slightly mineral and chalky touch. Not a gamete of the world-wide IPA dissemination.

BlackHaddock (6351) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2014
On tap at the brew outlet on Columbia St, San Diego on 18th March 2014. Misty old gold in appearance with whatever head there was dissipating before it reached my table, just a wisp and collar on my pour. Citrus nose and flavour with a mild semi-sweet malty background. A little thin in the body, not watery, but getting that way. OK but not really my thing.
