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.

PhillyBeer2112 (2580) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - JAN 9, 2015
Can. Man dig that crazy aroma! This is a seriously good smell. I really like the mix of floral and citrus hops, touches of orange fruit, flowers, grass. Flavor was might not quite up to par with the nose but still fine. Light, bready with a lemon rind hop flavor. Hints of cereal grain. Semi-dry, very very drinkable. They called it a red ale I bet because it’s red. Foamy khaki head, lots of lacing. This is the highest rating I’ve given in years.

bellco33 (412) - Willington, Connecticut, USA - DEC 17, 2014
Poured from can into pint glass: Pours deep amber with a nice white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, citrus, pineapple, caramel, and a little pine. Taste is sweet malt, lots of tropical and pineapple up front, and a piney bitter finish. Medium body, nice carbonation, this is a fantastic beer.

reggiedunlop (3340) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 2, 2014
Pours a reddish amber with a medium off white head...nice lacing and retention. Aroma has earthy hops and tea notes...some slight caramel maltiness. Flavor has some doughy maltiness and earthy/tea hops...some piney/resinous notes...just a bit of citrus and hoppy or wheaty spice. Mouthfeel is medium and silky with a dry earthy/piney finish.
