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.

nuplastikk (4123) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 26, 2011
Pint at the CCB tasting room. Unfiltered orange-brown. Steady beige head. Big seawater, fresh west coast hoppy aroma. A well done Amber for sure. Soapy, piny, resiny. Medium to full bodied, with some nice balance. Nails the style, this is a really solid offering.

Malty aromas are dominant, hops are complement to the Malts in the flavor. About even balance with malt tasting of strong amber.

onceblind (3668) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 15, 2011
GABF 2011. Clear rusty amber caramel with a rocky light beige head. Amazing aroma of juicy tropical fruit--mango, apricot, light pineapple, grapefruit, with some sweet caramel backbone. Lovely hop aroma. Unfortunately taste was not as good. Got some bitter grapefruit, a little pine, some herbalness, with a malt profile that didnt balance enough. Not overtly bitter, just not complex or nuanced. Just another overhopped beer.

nightrider (754) - encinitas, California, USA - OCT 10, 2011
Pour from a bottle. Murky amber red color with an off white head. Aromas were of sweet malt. Medium and nice mouthfeel. Mild bitter hop presence along with the crystal malt sugar. Not a whole lot else going on. Pleasant beer but would not search it out.

The aroma is strong with citrus and pine hops as well as caramel malt and a bit of candy sweetness. The appearance is deep amber with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. Overall a really good amber.

Reddish pour. Cream head. Lots of caramel, golden raisins, sugar cookie aroma. Flavor is full and slightly sweet. Tons of caramel malt. Great for the style.
