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.

BlackHaddock (5193) - 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.

Amber in color, clear with a thin head. Super IPA flavor and finish. Loved the hops and the finish. Very tasty San Diego IPA.

ben4321 (5088) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 24, 2010
Location: On tap at the SD Airport, 1/9/10

Aroma: Peach, grapefruit, caramel, and pine notes
Appearance: Caramel color with lots of lace on the glass
Flavor: Hop bitterness up-front, caramel malt backing
Palate: This beer is crisp and nice, pretty dry
Overall Impression: A pretty nice IPA, not a standout, but a more then adequate example of the style, and a really nice beer to kill some time while waiting for my plane to take off.

JohnnyJ (5080) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 30, 2010
Draft at brewpub. Light golden amber pour, white head. Nice hoppy citrus aroma. Flavor is more mutted and not as interesting, some grainy malt, citrus and hops.

joeneugs (4593) - Livermore, California, USA - MAR 5, 2010
A solid IPA. It pours golden orange with an off white head. Aroma of citrus, caramel, and pine. The flavor is piney with some peach and grapefruit notes. I liked this as a nice beer enjoyed at the Long Beach, CA airport.

mkel07 (4541) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - FEB 18, 2012
355ml bottle. Great IPA and a good story behind the name. Lots of piney citrus hop notes and flavours with a full hopped up mouthfeel. Mild bitterness with lots of pine on the palate.

mansquito (4479) - Nueva York, New York, USA - OCT 7, 2012
Some liquor store in San Diego: Pours a darkish orange with a white head. Aroma is rather nice and is better than the taste. Taste is earthy and piny, with less citrus than I would have expected. I also found that the sugar seemed to be a little bit unbalanced, as this beer was a bit too sweet. Hops are not sufficiently bitter and hardcore.

TimE (4347) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 22, 2012
light amber color, cherries and pale malt in the nose. Clean balanced mouth. Med body, not tons of depth or tons of hops, but enjoyable. Moderate dry finish.

rumproasts (4290) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAR 26, 2014
tap. Deep golden with small head. Crisp IPA with good west-coast hops. Solid but unexceptional.
