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.

bottle, picked up at dan murphys somewhere between gosford and terrigal. amber with a steady head; plenty of grapefruit in the aroma; decent bitterness, perhaps a bit heavy on the caramel but pretty drinkable nonetheless

No retention and medium lacing. Smells of slight sweet malt and hop resin. Very faint. Tastes of grapefruit, mango and bitter hops. Medium bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MrTipple (3923) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2014
Aroma: light floral hops, light grain, light resin. Appearance: clear gold, small, white head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: initial bitters continue, dry citrus hops coming up. Overall: OK IPA, nothing extraordinary though. Pint at Karl Strauss Brewing, San Diego.

Vycap Camel, Shanghai. Tmavsia zlata farba, biela pena. Vona sladka, citrusova, chmelova. V chuti stredne plne a ovocne telo, citrusove a grapefruitove tony. V pozadi trosku prazdnejsi dojazd, ale prijemne horky.

Idiosynkrasie (6857) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 15, 2015
355ml bottle. Cloudy, orangey golden colour with average, frothy to creamy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Hoppy aroma with fruity hints of mango and peach, a herbal touch. Taste is bitter hoppy, hints of mango and peach, a slightly mineral and chalky touch. Not a gamete of the world-wide IPA dissemination.

I was pretty impressed with this one. I dont really usually care for anything by KS, but this one was a bright and fresh IPA. Great aroma and the start of a strong flavor, but the finish gets a little washed out by harsh bitterness instead of hop charisma.

SDalkoholic (2371) - Linda Vista, California, USA - MAY 3, 2009
Bottle from an unknown liquor store in Chula Vista: Created a half inch of fluffed white foam while the ale is an auburn hue. Im able to smell a decent amount of hops as well as the alcohol content of the drink. The flavor ranges from a Karl Strauss signature style of malts and a faint background of pine and floral hops. Flavors are to minor and unsubstantial to give this IPA any worth deserving credentials.

Decent IPA on tap. Moderate hops - some pine notes. Decent brew - moderate mouthfeel. Not bad but not memorable.

Sledutah (7188) - Utah, USA - OCT 23, 2009
12oz bottle. Pours slightly cloudy, medium copper with a creamy white head. I light lace in the glass that dissipated quickly. Aroma is bitter citrus and piney. Taste is what you would expect from the aroma. It finishes with a bitter malt flavor that leaves an antiseptic taste on my tongue.

JW32Hoops (70) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 14, 2010
12 oz bottle poured into pint glass. Pours a deep cherry amber with no head whatsoever. Aroma is sticky sweet fruitiness which continues throughout this indulgent caramel hop flavor. This IPA seems conflicted to me, like it cant make up tis mind between being a sweet and hoppy IPA or a full fledged dessert beer. Its a jack of all trades, but a master of none. R.I.P. Stargazer.
