TOWER 10 IPA
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 flavored IPA.
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.

“A nice mouthful of bitter and citrusy hops in the beginning, and a finish of bready and caramel layer of malt. The bitter hops linger on my tongue well past the sip. A solid, full flavored, balanced IPA, showcasing some of the great qualities of a West Coast IPA, without going extreme. This beer has lots of body, lots of hops, and the right amount of malt. This is the best beer in the Karl Strauss lineup.”

“While assertively hopped, this IPA has a silky finish.”

“Big piney hop nose. Good malt balance. Bitterness lingers through to the finish. Highly recommended.”
