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.

A light IPA. Fresh cut barnyard hay. Could grow on you. More like a slightly bitter red ale. Nothing like what I consider an IPA. Has an appealing grainy flavor.

On tap at Dinseyland. Little to no head. Not carbonated eneough for my liking but tasted OK on a hot day. Could have been hoppier.

Dervock (1272) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 27, 2013
Bottle - pours hazy gold with a big white head. Lots of flowery, citrus hops, decent amount of stone fruit, almost a vanilla cream to it. Taste is overpowered by a sharp bitterness up front, dominates anything else that is in there. Mouthfeel is creamy.

drjoeng (1204) - SINGAPORE - AUG 16, 2016
7%ABV. IPA. Poured out gold. 6SRM. Nose is surprisingly beery with a nice refreshing citrus aroma. Really very inviting. Mouthfeel is soapy. Palate is solid malt with soda crackers, unsalted saltines, white toast and water biscuits. Hops are a bit spicy with brief scallion, then cilantro then a brief spark of citrus peel then the long slide into resin, sap and pine and citrus oils. Finish is medium, bitter and pine-citrus.

Thisis12ptfont (1167) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - JUL 30, 2012
Bread and oats on the aroma. Pours a light brown with a medium sized foam. Taste is a quick, moderate bitter hops with a faint caramel and doughy malt in the back. Overall, sad excuse for an IPA. Only offers a quick bitter hop bite with pathetic malts in the back. D rating.

varanid99 (1160) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 19, 2014
Light amber pour with thin, fizzy head. Citrus, floral hop aroma with light malt as well. Taste is malty, citrus, nice bitterness which fades fairly quickly. Not bad
