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.

nuts, toast, roasty, citrus, herbs, woody, smoke, vanilla. An awesome IPA. Most IPAs that I drink have an large alcohol taste. Not Tower 10, smooth with a great after taste.

Bottle from Dan Murphy’s. Great balance. Aromas of caramel, grass, and citrus. Taste is sweet and bitter, well balanced and long. Palate is velvety and dry, medium-full bodied. Amber, with a frothy head.

Bloody great American IPA. Great complex aroma, firm hoppy bitterness and surprisingly sessional. Goes well with spicy asian food.

This is the ideal IPA. Floral, hoppy and refreshing. Great golden body with a almost too long of a lasting head. Great summer bbq beer.

Bottle shared with PotjeBier and MarcoDL @ Beer Temple. Hazy light orange color, average sized off-white head. Aroma is malts, hops, resinous and piney. Nice! Taste malts, again hops, piney and resinous, grassy, a superb bitterness. Suitable decent body and carbonation. Lovely stuff!

Velmi dobrá IPA. Stylové lahve a obal, plná chuť, tmavší jantarová barva, hustá pěna. Lahváč v San Franciscu.

Fashawn (604) - ITALY - JUN 11, 2015
Aroma carico di fiori d’arancia, molto dolce sulle prime. scorza di agrumi,parecchio pompelmo, ed un po’ di pino nel sottofondo. Attacco di pane dolce, watery come tessitura ma non slegata. Amaro da scorza di agrumi, leggermente il pino. Un po’ di ritorno alcolico, l’unico difetto di una birra che piace e si lascia bere. Molto ben fatta. Carbonatazione ai minimi termini, liscia, ben bilanciata.
