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.

12 oz bottle. 13:23 2035. From demolenbeershop.com.
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.

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.

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.

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.

macca147 (508) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 24, 2017
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.

Fules (1375) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - NOV 15, 2017
Közepes, örökké tartó hab, félbarna szín. Déligyümölcsös, citrusos illat. Enyhén édeskés, déligyümölcsös, citrusos, kissé fenyős ízek. Lágy, közepesen testes, enyhén szénsavas, közepesen keserű. Kellemes, jól összerakott IPA.

From the tap poured amber with a fair amount of head. Hoppy flavor with a lasting finish.
