COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Tocobaga lived off the bounty of Tampa Bay hundreds of years before the arrival of the Spanish in the 1500’s. They were potters, tool makers and the only Florida natives to grow maize. The large platform mounds they built are still with us today, with one of the largest found near Old Tampa Bay in Safety Harbor, Florida. Climb to the top, and with a little imagination, you can see Tampa Bay as they did. Graphic design by Eric Swanson. Recipe by Tim Ogden.

Strong aroma in a hearty and robust beer. Heavy body. Sweet caramel malt flavor that has strong spiciness and noticeable alcohol.

Clear cola color with ivory sheen. Caramel, floral, spicy hop aromas. Light to medium body with soft co2. Spicy caramel, floral, pine flavors with a drying, mildly boozy finish--good.

12/25/10 growler. Poured a darker shade of ruby red. thick foamy head. clear. Great resin like hops to add dryness dense fruit flavors with toasty malt to settle it down. IMO very similar to SN celebration but fresher for me. I love balance and this is probably one of the best balanced beers I have had.

En una maleta llego desde Florida. Increible Red Ale, Color rojo translúcido con una corona persistente pero de burbujas grandes. Algo más de carbonatación que el resto de cervezas que he probado de cigar city. En boca sin embargo es una mezcla de fruta y caramelos espectacular con un ph ligeramente más bajo de lo que acostumbra el estilo, lo que la hace perfecta para el verano, pocas cosas he probado tan resultonas y frescas... con ese color y porcentaje alcohólico. Una genialidad a tener en cuenta.

This is a decent red ale. More full bodied mouth feel and not any funky taste like the red bird ale that I had before it that had a more floral/herbal flavor. With no other interesting choices, this is a go to decent beer.

Quite possibly the best red ale I have ever tasted. Smooth, flavorful, and a terrific after taste. As much as I like the Jai Alai, this is Cigar City’s best beer.

Poured from bottle amber body with tan head. Citrus aroma. Nice hoppy citrus taste not over done with the hops.Medium body with a taste that lingers. Over all very enjoyable beer

Bottle from tuba boy, drowland. Thanks! Pours a deep amber with a nose of hoppy rose, light tobacco wrapper, biscuit, and orange peel. Flavor is hoppy grapefruit biscuit with a light orange marmalade. Average mouthfeel. I normally dislike "red" ales, but this is tasty. No denying it. Even after spending two days in my truck in the heat. Wow. I can only imagine what a fresh one tastes like.
