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.

Six pack from Dan Murphy.Very nice drop, not an explosion of hops in your mouth like some IPA's, and the 7% ABV doesn't show it's head until you are a few bottles in. Would definitely buy again. Recommended ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma: light floral hops, light grain, light resin. Appearance: clear gold, small, white head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: initial bitters continue, dry citrus hops coming up. Overall: OK IPA, nothing extraordinary though. Pint at Karl Strauss Brewing, San Diego.

GuideDogSaint (350) - Epsom, Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2014
12oz bottle from Tasty Life, Xiamen. Pours hazy golden orange with a thin white head. Aroma is resinous pine, not sure there’s any citrus. Bitter finish. OK but too much pine for me.

"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."

monoroc (39) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - SEP 16, 2014
Pours cloudy orange to golden color with a minimal head. Aroma is malt, caramel, oranges. Taste is rather dry and crisp, thin malt body. Bitterness is above medium, rather broad and long lasting. Perfect carbonation. Good IPA, but the malt body is lacking a bit.

Bootlegger007 (44) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 3, 2014
Cloudy appearance with a small white head, heavy floral aroma, very hoppy, powerful tropical fruit flavours, medium body, tangy fruity sensation in the mouth followed by a good lingering bitter aftertaste.

Muggus69 (1226) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - SEP 3, 2014
355mL bottle BB 03/2015 Looks the part - firm inch off dense white foam atop a slightly hazy pale gold body. Nose has a good hop hit too - pine, pineapple, melon, citrus, woody spice, with an underlying toasty malt. Full bodied, moderate carbonation, good weight - not too heavy for strength. Upfront malt sweetness accompanied by some toasty bready notes, abrupty followed by big notes of pine, grass, orange rind, and unripe tropical fruit hops. Firm, lingering bitterness on a dry finish. A decent IPA - plenty of flavour, reasonable balance.

beerguy00 (131) - Fountain Valley, California, USA - AUG 4, 2014
Pours a clear yellow with white head. Floral aroma, with a bit of pine and citrus. Sweet floral front with some fruity flavors and a bit of a bitter crisp finish.

UPDATED: SEP 28, 2014 Simply a very nice all round ipa, recommended from an ipa fan, a great example of a West coast ipa

No retention and medium lacing. Smells of slight sweet malt and hop resin. Very faint. Tastes of grapefruit, mango and bitter hops. Medium bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
