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.

Pours hazy muddy brown red with creamy lasting beige head. Smell is iced tea. Taste is slightly hoppy leaning bitterness wise but fairly sweet as well. Tastes good and is quite drinkable and flavorful. Full body, creamy, slightly prickly carbonation. Pretty good red ale, but not something I reach for often.

An excellent red ale that has a great story as to why and how it got its name! I love it when a brewery includes their communities history into their beers! Another delicious beer from Cigar City!

12 oz Can. Tasted on 6/24/14. Beer from Cigar City Brewery. The beer has a reddish brown color with an off white head. The beer has great hop flavor with a good strong malt to balance the flavor. Overall a great red/ Amber beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dunn4040 (125) - Georgia, USA - JUN 4, 2014
Fresh from the brewery, poured from a can into my new Cigar City pint glass. Pours a medium red color with a pillowy off-white head. Nice retention and lacing. Great looking beer. Aroma is intensely citrusy. Smells like a big IPA. Big bold flavors flood the palate as soon as you take your first sip. Big citrus flavors, along with other fruit flavors such as apple, and a mild malty sweetness. There is a lingering bitterness but it balances everything out. This beer really caught me off guard with how good it is. Very well done, very enjoyable.

Pours brown with reddish hue and tan head with some lacing. Aroma of apple and mango peels, bread, and light hops. Taste is malty bread, caramel, toffee, and rip fruit. More complex than I thought. Very nice.
