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.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass. I can just make out that its Aug 08 12. A - Pours a very hazy dark brown/red body with a two finger tan head. Great lacing and retention. There is a TON of floating bits of proteins and yeast. I’ll chock that up to chill haze due to shipping in the winter though. S - Piney and tropical hops followed by bready sweet caramel malts. A bit spicy, like pumpernickel. Touch of the danky dank. T - Follows the nose closely. Tropical and resinous hops, caramel malt, molasses, and dark bread. Lingering sweetness with a light bitterness. M - Medium with a lot of carbonation. Dry finish. Highly drinkable given its abv. O - A very tasty red ale. The bold and tropical heavy hops and kept in check by plenty of rich bread and caramel notes. Great beer.

12 oz. bottle thanks smith4498. Pours amber red with a tight off white head that leaves a collar. Aroma has good grapefruit citrus hops with hints of caramel malt and light spice. Taste is solid bitter grapefruit hops and spice with a nice malt balance. Palate is medium crisp and chalky with a dry finish. Solid amber ale.

GTAEgeek (1867) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - DEC 4, 2012
12 oz. bottle. Dark brown with a small, tan head. Dried fruit, with notes of licorice, resin, and earth. Very sweet with a significant bitterness in the finish. Medium body with a sticky, clingy mouthfeel. Interesting, but not particularly tasty.

rejtable (2258) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 2, 2012
Pours light amber with a thin head hat quickly dissipates. Nose is sweet candy and a touch of pine hops. Aromas are sweet fruit, some floral, some light piney hops. Tastes are medium sweet and a medium bitter finish. Dangerously drinkable even north of 7%. Mouth is medium body with lively carbonation and a bit of a on acidic bite to the finish.

BMMillsy (1788) - Florida, USA - NOV 30, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2014 Pours dark red with a creamy off white head and lots of lacing as it recedes. Smell of hops and more hops. Plenty of grassy, earthy pine and some notes of caramel and bread malt in the background. even a good bit of citrus here. Flavor is pine hops and a bit of candy sweet flavor, more pine and sweet citrus fruits. Very much reminds me of a DIPA, which I was not expecting. Lighter mouthfeel for that style though and finishes nice and dry and clean. Fantastic. New favorite red ale for me, but keep in mind that comes from a hop head. This is a world class brew and arguably the best thing that CCB makes relative to the style. Wow.

Has a rather decent hop scent, light sweet roast taste and it is alright for the style.

November 16, 2012 bottle shared by Brandon. Cloudy orangish pour with some head. Aroma and taste of hops and malt. One of my least favorite styles, but this actually wasn’t too bad.
