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.

Rating #1718 - 2015.06.02 - Bottle from San Diego - Pours a clear golden amber, aromatics of grapefruit, pinecone, orange peel. More grapefruit, citrus notes sweet and a mildly aggressive bitterness that isnt unwarranted. Lovely stuff.

Cybercat (5392) - Georgia, USA - JUN 27, 2016
Taps clear amber with a fairly thick and fine-bubbled pale buff head. Aroma is not strong, but promises fresh hops and malt. Flavor delivers evergreen, zingy hops and fresh malt plus more than a hint of grapefruit. Mouthfeel features firm body and strong, lasting fizz. Maybe not towering, but a worthy IPA.

BlazerT (842) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - APR 22, 2016
Bottle. Sensoric. Golden, little hazy with medium to big, white head. Good head retention and lacing. Nice citrus (mainly grapefruit) and floral aroma, als some touch of tropical fruits. Taste is medium bitter, broken by biscuity sweetness. Medium body, creamy texture, average carbonation, finish is long, bitter and semi-dry. In overall nice IPA, refreshing with long and bitter aftertaste, very solid in its style.

Bottle, 355ml. A clear amber beer with a small white head. Aroma is of hops, malt, citrics and maybe chlorine (reminds me of when Im close to a pool). Taste is bitter with some carbonation. Medium bodied, astrigent and dry. Strong hoppy finish with a hint of mint.
