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.

Crisp, light IPA. Hops not overwhelming, but lingering piney taste kept me coming back for more!

Reddish-orange in color with a white foamy head and a noticable but not overpowering hop aroma. Good bitter, citrusy hop presence balanced by a smooth malty body. Definitely an IPA but not an overpowering one by any means. Good food-friendly IPA from a great brewery!

355ml bottle. Great IPA and a good story behind the name. Lots of piney citrus hop notes and flavours with a full hopped up mouthfeel. Mild bitterness with lots of pine on the palate.

From a 355ml bottle on 17/6/2012. Pours a clear dark golden with a big head. Has quite a big piny hop aroma, against a background of brown sugar and fruit. This is a very hop forward brew, with a huge pint, grapefruity bitterness dominating, but there’s also a decent whack of caramel malt and sweet orange. It could be a shade more balanced but this is still a very solid, big, high quality IPA. I’m surprised it doesn’t rate a bit higher on here.

Pours amber with a lasting head. Nose shows fruity and floral hops. Orange blossom, peach, apricot all show, along with a fruity confectionery note. Similar flavours: sweet, confectionery-like fruit, sweet clean malt and a bite of alcohol amongst the assertive bitterness in the finish. Carbonation seems excessive.
