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.

Love this beer! The aroma is the first thing i notice about all beers and this one satisfies the nose and entices you to take gulp after gulp. Major appreciation to Karl Strauss for their extensive hops usage per recipe. Always creating a unique taste.

nuts, toast, roasty, citrus, herbs, woody, smoke, vanilla. An awesome IPA. Most IPAs that I drink have an large alcohol taste. Not Tower 10, smooth with a great after taste.

Bottle from Dan Murphy’s. Great balance. Aromas of caramel, grass, and citrus. Taste is sweet and bitter, well balanced and long. Palate is velvety and dry, medium-full bodied. Amber, with a frothy head.

Bloody great American IPA. Great complex aroma, firm hoppy bitterness and surprisingly sessional. Goes well with spicy asian food.

This is the ideal IPA. Floral, hoppy and refreshing. Great golden body with a almost too long of a lasting head. Great summer bbq beer.
