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.

iammatt (13) - California, USA - MAR 12, 2013
Pours a light orange with a white head that disperses to leave a foam cap on the beer. Grapefruit and Citrus dominates the nose as well as flavor, however a solid malt base keeps it together.

Bottle. Pours an Earthy Red Colour. Aroma is of Sweet Citrus. Taste. Can taste some Piney bitterness with also notes of Citrus followed by a candy sweetness. Overall. A good beer, certainly not one of the best, but still worth buying again.
