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.

Dark red pour with beige head. Aroma is malty with pine. Taste is sweet malt with earthy hops and fruit. Pretty solid red ale.

"An imperial red, as opposed to an amber, but ironically lighter in color. the hops are lively and spicy in this one, though, and I love the sweet malt/bitter balance. well done."

fishonmyplane (446) - Newington, Connecticut, USA - SEP 25, 2014
Reddish/brown color. This is more full-bodied and flavorful than the average amber ale. Medium bitterness and nice citrus notes. Fairly sweet with some caramel malt, dark sugar, and a little dark fruit as well. Thick creamy head. A fine beer and one of the better examples of the amber ale, a style that I typically steer clear of.

bwa5879 (670) - Portage, Michigan, USA - SEP 21, 2014
Cloudy brown pour with a half inch reddish white head. Juicy grapefruit and zesty citrus rind aroma, salty pretzel too. Tingly zesty foamy mouthfeel, average carbonation, really clean finish. More juicy grapefruit and zest in the flavor, no amber hints to speak of. Very good and refreshing hoppy beer.

This beer is a home run. IPA, check, butter-check, a bit of sweetness without an overwhelming sugar sweet taste to it-check indeed. Graphics on the label? Ha? They missed the boat there. Nice alt to dog fish 90. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

demmbonz (530) - Erin, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 17, 2014
12oz can to shaker. Clear copper. Big fluffy off white head. Piney hop aroma. Nice malty amber body with big but not overpowering hop presence.

bigda83 (215) - Jamestown, New York, USA - SEP 12, 2014
Can. Pours a pretty clear copper with a tan head that stays. Aroma is caramel, brown sugar, vanilla, and dark fruits. Taste is sweet, but not overly and follows the nose with possibly some mossasses. Medium body and well carbed. A nice bitter finish to it as well.

BelgianBeerGal (3198) - Panama City, Florida, USA - SEP 4, 2014
Straight from the can while writing a legal response. This is a big, bold amber ale for a style that can get bland. Lots of hops but sweet malt balanced it well. Very well made.

This is such a great hoppy red ale. I've had it dozens of times but I guess I've never rated it. Definitely one of my favorites from CCB.

chiiidog (42) - Lubbock, Texas, USA - AUG 28, 2014
Pours amber/dark red with a nice big head. Smells citrusy and malty. Taste is fantastic with huge citrus hops balanced with sweet bready malt. Tastes like a bready, malty Jai Alai to me. Medium thick mouthfeel. Outstanding amber ale.
