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.

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.

A nice I P A that's readily available everywhere in SoCal. Citrus notes in aroma and VERY hoppy with beautiful lacing. Not quite in the class of Stone I P A or Racer 5, but still very good. Enjoy!

Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a light golden-orange color with a big billowy head of fizzy white foam. The head fades rather quickly, leaving a light level of bubbly lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the brew is strong of a floral and pine hop nature with a great showing of a bready smell. Along with these aromas comes some lighter notes of a more citrus hop smell as well as some light earthy hop smells. A hint of a caramel and light fruit aroma are there as well, giving a rather nice and balanced, somewhat drier IPA smell overall. Taste – The taste begins with a bready and slightly doughy taste mixed with a little bit of a caramel taste as well as some flavors of a light fruit nature. The hop is very light upfront, with it only having a little bit of a grapefruit citrus taste. As the taste moves on, more and more hop comes to the tongue with a surge in the citrus, but also a coming of some pine and herbal hop tastes. The pine ends up surpassing the grapefruit hop at the end, and with a coming of some earthy hop tastes, one is left with a rather pleasant semi-dry, but rather flavorful hopped flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer on the average to slightly thicker and chewier side with a carbonation level that is slightly below average to average. Overall the feel was pretty decent as it was thick enough for the dank hop, with the carbonation all while supporting the malt and sweet nicely. Overall – A quite easy drinking and semi-drier IPA with a bit of a more piney and dank taste. Overall fairly nice.
