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.

Tap at Eureka burger. Rating #107. Orange/amber pour with a thin clingy white head. Light sweet fruity aroma, with a hint of citrus. Moderate bitterness with a nice little toastiness, solid IPA. (1770)

Ober (2806) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - AUG 8, 2012
A clear orange/yellow colored beer, with a white head. The aroma of fruits like citris/orange with hop. The taste is fruity like citrus, with gentle hop bitter. The aftertaste is sweet and nice bitter.

BOLTZ7555 (2709) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 22, 2010
Clear copper head that produces more of a film rather than lacing on the inside of the glass. Aroma is faint with orange peel and malt...kind of like candied citrus. Flavor is more sweet than bright...and is a bit muddled. Nothing crisp...nothing really stands out. Too much caramel. Medium mouthfeel. Average.

NachlamSie (2647) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 9, 2012
Pint from tap at Cosmo’s in Old Town. Solid IPA here but not standout. It’s packing a respectable grassy hoppiness with a dash of citrus and herbs. Bitterness is even throughout and has a decently dry finish. Malts add appropriate bready balance and I find woody flavors here and there. Decent.

rumproasts (2588) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAR 26, 2014
tap. Deep golden with small head. Crisp IPA with good west-coast hops. Solid but unexceptional.

bytemesis (2581) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - AUG 15, 2012

mkel07 (2520) - 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.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 24, 2009
Pours with an orange-amber body topped by a thick head with little lacing left on the glass. The aroma is nice...full of fresh green hop notes and light notes of orange. The flavor is citrusy (predominantly orange) with sweet notes, a little underlying hops and a note of alcohol. Kinda reminds me of a screwdriver. medium bodied, smooth and a bit dry.
