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.

been drinking thru a bunch of this since settling down here. A well-balanced hoppy amber with some malt sweetness and dry finish.

nimbleprop (5498) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 29, 2012
12oz bottle pours a translucent, deep ruby red with some creamy, lacing white head. I was a bit surprised by the nose, fruity, apples, but also a significant hop kick, lemons, tangelo, a little malt. Flavor is very similar, malty, apples, caramel, toasted grains, lemons, tangerines, a little red grape, earthy. Medium bodied, sweet, slightly bitter finish. I would call this an elevated amber ale.

Bigmmartin (603) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - MAR 29, 2012
12oz bottle from MikeLuke.
Appearance is is a murky brown/amber color with a thick head and good lacing. Aroma is mostly pine and grapefruit but I can also pick some sweetness in there as well. Flavor is a nice combination of strong hops and lots of caramel malt. It ends with a smooth finish and a moderate bitterness. Not my favorite style, but well done and I’m glad I got to try it!

FudgeSociety2 (311) - Florida, USA - MAR 27, 2012
Thought this was going to be a fruit beer based on the label. What it is is a very nice hoppy ale. I’d like to try it fresher. Great palate, no unpleasant bitterness.

Jesterdeal (1985) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - MAR 24, 2012
Aroma of sticky grapefruit with hints of Christmas pine. Pours red and hazy with a good sticky head. Great hop flavors in this with an appropriate amount of malt to give it some juice. Grapefruit, floral and a nice sticky resin. Great red ale.

Clear look, amber in color, cashew colored head. The smell is citrus hops, malty sweetness, sweet, juicy fruit. The taste is smoother and not as bitter as expected, sweet, malty, and good. Vanishes a little at the end.
