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.

Amber pour with a thick, sticky white head. The nose is fairly tropical with a distinct mix of caramelly malt and some light orange peel as well. Pretty fresh and hoppy with a distinct kiss of iced tea. There is a little bit of sweetness and some light hoppy bitterness. Nice dry-hopped character on the back… by the numbers but still pretty good.

Ibrew2or3 (8614) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 11, 2011
Bomber pours clear copper with light tan head. The aroma is pretty full with lots of malts, caramel malts and nuttiness with echoes of pine hops. I seem to have gotten an old bottle. The taste has aged blunted pine hop flavor and pine hop bitterness. The malts have made deep in-roads into the flavor. I need to try this again with a fresh bottle.
