COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Tocobaga lived off the bounty of Tampa Bay hundreds of years before the arrival of the Spanish in the 1500ís. 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.

On tap at the brewery. Fantastic brew... Not overly rye flavors. Hoppy and bitter, interesting rye.

So hoppy, I consider it an "Amber IPA". Intense citrus / pine aroma that translates well to the taste. One of my favorites.

Very suprised I hadnít rated this before. Smell its lots of rich character hops, NW variety, very fresh almost soapy quality to them. Small amount of the red malt coming through on the nose. Head is medium retention, very creamy and completely white, color is a dark reddish brown. Really enjoying this beer. Plenty of hop character, chewyness, medium body, drinks almost like a red IPA. This seems to have gotten better since I have had it last. Soft carbonation. I do wish there was a little more of the malt body here. finishes quite bitter. All in all an excellent beer. 4/5

Drake (8981) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - FEB 25, 2012
Served on draft at Brewvival 2012. Pours a hazy reddish amber color with a medium sized frothy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of bitter earthy hops and faint toffee malts. The taste is stone fruits, citrus hops and a toffee finish. Medium bodied. Nice.

(12oz bottle thanks to drowland) clearish copper with wispy tan bubbles and nice lacing. Nose of rich tropical fruits, mango, guava, bit of dank weed. Taste is quite toasty, mild bitterness, slightly meaty. Interesting beer.

BrewDad (5035) - Olympia, Washington, USA - FEB 21, 2012
Amber in color, clear with a thin head. Hop forward with a malt backing in the aroma. Nice balanced flavor. Very good easy drinking amber ale.

Crompt (120) - York, South Carolina, USA - FEB 18, 2012
Very hoppy amber ale with a bit of a spicy aftertaste. Lots of flavor for an amber ale which is a style that is usually very boring.

Aurelius (4376) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 14, 2012
Lightly sweet, in-your-face west coast hop aroma - pine, froot and cat whizz. Cloudy, chestnut brown beer with a filmy off-white head. Pathetic label. Nicely hopped, lightly sweet, dry toffee - the flavor was very interesting and had some notes that I couldnít quite put my finger on. Finishes off with prominent acidity, dry hops and some off chemical tones.. You know, this style is really hobbled - it never quite develops the sophistication that an APA has, and itís usually a bit too acidic and maybe even a little astringent. That said, this particular instance seems to get around most of that, but Iím glad I didnít buy a sixer. Market Square Likkas, Timberlane.
