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, sent from LateStart (thanks Jordan), pours an opaque dark amber with a small beige head. Nose is an orthodox amber, but with more hop character, revealing notes of dry caramel malts and dry woody hops. Flavour is very similar, with the caramel malt character feeling very dry due to the high hop content. There is a small hint of sweetness, but the body comes off quite dry. Highly drinkable and refreshing. Very solid amber.

Lukaduke (2918) - Gray, Maine, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Pours a nice brownish red color with a finger of sticky eggshell foam. Aromas are juicy grapefruit, cedar and spicy earthy malts. On the palate its brighter than most reds Ive had and the great juicy hop presence really punches up the flavors to a highly enjoyable level. Nice cedar and pine in the mid to late palate and a nice earthy bitter finish.

kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - NOV 9, 2012
12oz bottle, purchased from Luekens Liquors. Pours a deep, clear orange-amber color; creamy, light-tan head with nice retention and lacing. Juicy red fruitiness along with citrus and pine hop character; really generous aromatics for an amber, with its emphasis on the hops. Medium-full body; medium-high CO2; a bit of clean alcohol warmth coming through gives this a slightly leaner feel than it would otherwise have; reasonable acidity and effervesence; highly drinkable; following the aroma, plenty of red fruits and vinous alcohol and the generous doses of citrusy, piney hops; generally balanced overall, with its tilt toward bitterness; ok, a definite tilt toward bitterness. Juicy, tasty stuff. Lasting finish of citrusy bitterness and a toasty, lightly grainy core.

KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - OCT 30, 2012
12oz Bottle. The pour was a hazy medium caramel brown with a small (1 finger or less) off white rocky head that reduced to a large puddle and medium collar, with very good streaky lacing. The aroma was of a light bread malt, pine and citrus hops and a soapy yeast with notes of caramel, citrus (grapefruit) and a mild fruity ester. It tasted lightly bitter with a nice malty sweetness, a hint of caramel and a slight fruitiness early on, and then it became very hoppy with a big grapefruit presence towards the end. The flavor was about average in duration with a slightly sweet hoppy citrus taste that was left to hang out a tad longer. Mouthfeel was almost medium in body and dry in texture with a moderate carbonation. Overall this was a brew that possessed a bold hoppiness with mild fruity sweetness and a smooth drinkability. This one a really enjoyed and plan on drinking again...
