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.

BuckeyeBoy (7545) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 11, 2016
On tap at Disneyland pours out a crisp golden topped with a sand head. Nose is pine a light tropical fruit hop and some bread malts. Taste is more of the nice tropical fruits hops and a mellow malt.

kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 11, 2016
Clear gold body with a small wispy head. The nose is slightly citrusy with some doughy malt. The flavor is a bit weak, a fair amount of bitterness, but light hop flavor. Crackery and bready maltiness in the middle, lingering bitterness on the back end. Medium bodied, a little clingy, fizzy carbonation. Meh, ok, but not a standout.

danjs5 (221) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 26, 2016
Light amber colour and light fruit aroma. Some subtle fruit / hops. Light at the front through to medium body and malts. Well balanced malt profile. Low hop for IPA. Doesn’t feel like a 7%ABV, maybe more EPA?

CObiased (496) - Bayfield, Colorado, USA - SEP 13, 2016
12oz bottle - pours a clear golden yellow with a tinge of orange and a med off white head. Good aroma of pine and tropical hops, caramel malts and some bitter herbs. Tastes more like an English IPA with more malt content and less hop punch.

2.1
Blueshawk (465) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - SEP 8, 2016
- trüblich gelbe Farbe mit guter Schaumbildung - ganz zarte Aromen nach Citrusfrüchten - gute Carbonisierung - außer einer Hopfennote kommt dann geschmacklich leider nichts mehr hinzu - das ganze bleibt zu leer und ohne besonderen Charakter - der Abgang hinterlässt dann noch ein leicht wässriges Mundgefühl Fazit: Eintöniges und ziemlich geschmacksloses IPA
