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 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

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.

0.355l bottle. Looks really nice in the glass with a thick big extremely lacing almost fluffy off-white head on top of a amber brown cloudy body. Not much to say on the looks really. Its really sweet fruity on the nose with a ton of ripe sweet fruits. Thick juicy peaches, some fermented mango, piney hops and a thick malty base. Smells really inviting I have to admit. Doesn’t taste bad either. It is perhaps on the sweet side at first, but the piney really branch bitter find is equalizes it nicely. I get again lots of ripe old fruits in the taste. It has a really strong and powerful malty base providing it a near fudge like caramel sweetness. Pine cones and a little yeast finishes this one of nicely. Almost a nutty like yeastiness in the finish. Yeah, I quite enjoyed this one. 07.10.2013

Drank straight from can. Not usually a fan of red ales but this is one of my favorites from CCB, Aroma is nice with citrus standing out. Hops are well balanced in this beer.

Can enjoyed at Ranch-a-Thon XIV. Aroma is fruity and has a nice tropical thing going on with a slight hop profile for a red/amber. Taste is totally unexpected tropical fruit forward, more hop forward beer. Slight lemon but the hops are not bitter at all. Mango really comes out as does some papaya. The only thing that speaks to an amber is the initial taste which quickly dissipates to a great tropical beer.
