12 oz bottle. 13:23 2035. From demolenbeershop.com.ZacM612 (716) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - AUG 4, 2016
Cloudy golden color with a midsize foamy white head.
Caramel, toffee, piney and resiny hops and some bitterness in the aroma. The flavor is piney and resiny hops, strong bitterness, mild sweetness and some tropical fruity notes. I’d love to taste this fresh.
Draft at the source in San Diego. Slightly hazy deep golden with an off white head. Pine and citrus aroma. Grapefruit taste up front smoothly bitter finish.

Tower 10 IPA is one of those ales where the stated 60 IBU’s can seem a little misleading. While there is undoubtedly a fair amount of hop representation from the Pacific Northwest, this beer tastes maltier thanks to good dose of rich caramel flavor. The American hops do come through well with their usual traits of pine and grapefruit. This was one of the most predictable of the Karl Strauss brews I enjoyed, yet it still works as a tribute to a time when Western American IPA’s were less aggressive. djd07 (14469) - Houston, Texas, USA - DEC 31, 2016
On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear orange gold with small white head that lasts. The aroma is grass and grapefruit. Medium body, grapefruit pith, dank, resin finish, good. mcberko (17809) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 13, 2017
On tap at Karl Strauss, pours a clear blonde with a small white head. Aroma brings out herbal and citrus hops upfront, followed by toasted malt. Flavour is along the same lines, with citrus and herbal hops upfront, backed by toasted biscuity malt. Nicely constructed, lean and dry finish. Good stuff.

330ml bottle. Pours a pale orange gold with a thin white head. Aroma: pine, grapefruit and citrus aromas dominate. Mild malt notes. Taste: pine, citrus, grapefruit flavours. Mild caramel malts balance out the hops. Moderate to high bitterness that lingers. Low carbonation. Quite a decent IPA and easy to drink but the flavour balance is by no means complex. It is a good standard IPA for someone new to IPAs but the flavour gets a bit boring after a while. skmikeg (1826) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 15, 2009
UPDATED: APR 17, 2009 Pour a nice copper color with a tan head. taste is malty with a okay bitter hop finish. does finish clean. however, this does seem to be a little water downed. while it is much better then Stargazer, it lacks the charcter and body of a great IPA.

Pours with an orange-amber body topped by a thick head with little lacing left on the glass. The aroma is nice...full of fresh green hop notes and light notes of orange. The flavor is citrusy (predominantly orange) with sweet notes, a little underlying hops and a note of alcohol. Kinda reminds me of a screwdriver. medium bodied, smooth and a bit dry. jeremytoni (3058) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - APR 28, 2009
From the tap poured amber with a fair amount of head. Hoppy flavor with a lasting finish. SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 4, 2009
12 oz. bottle, six pack from BevMo. Pours a clear, rich copper color with a small whitish head that diminishes rapidly. Aroma of toasty malts, herbs and sweet bread, hints of clover and citrus. Flavor also of toasty malts, a bit of caramel, biter herby hops, lemon grass, citrus peel, a bit of clay and a slightly peppery, astringent finish. Medium body, lightly oily and a gentle tingle on the tongue. Overall a much better, hoppier IPA than their standard.
