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.

Naven (1000) - Poway, California, USA - APR 5, 2009
Bottle, from Henry’s. $6.50 a six pack. This is a new release, apparently taking the place of Stargazer. Looks nice, smells nice, but the flavor is rather dull. It’s hoppy, but it lacks the brightness and fruitiness I crave in an IPA. For whatever reason, Karl Strauss bottled beer has never impressed me like their draft beers. My guess is that this is really good on tap. As it is now, it’s just OK.

NobleSquirrel (3439) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 26, 2009
Bottle from Snojerk321. Pours a nice copper color and disappearing head. Nose is citrus and a touch of caramel. On taste, I get a bit of an earthy taste with a lighter hop character than expected. Touch of metal as well. Overall, this isn’t a bad IPA, actually pretty decent.

IrishBoy (4078) - Bakersfield, California, USA - MAY 28, 2009
Draft at Disney’s California Adventure Park. Nose is pine and citrus hops. Lightly hazy amber with a medium beige head. Flavor is light bitterness which lasts to the finish. Not bad for Disneyland.

Rosebud butternuts (2396) - Denton, Texas, USA - SEP 24, 2009
bottle thanks to the tick loving bhensonb. poured a nice amberish gold with a soapy white head and some lace. aroma had a strong malt backbone and maybe a bit of cereal or biscuit and the smallest hint of pine. flavor was grass, alcohol (like cheap vodka), pine and some caramel. medium body with medium carbonation. thanks bill for yet another step to 1000.
