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.

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

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.

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.

Salmoniform (652) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Poured from can to glass. Deep copper hue with light brown creamy head that lingered well. Aroma is spicy, malt, orange rind, plum, brown sugar. Mouthfeel is great with a medium body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry sweetness throughout with a bitter following that blends well in the finish. Overall this is a very nice red ale.

Petkus331 (265) - Redford, Michigan, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Aroma of reisling grapes and caramel cereal grain. Appears orange red with beautiful lace and fluffy foam. Taste is very bitter for a red, but good, more of a red ipa, sweet grain up front with grape like hoppiness that fades into a very hoppy bitterness on the end. Palate is fizzy and nice. Overall, unique and delicious.

firstsip (438) - Michigan, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Tap. Murky red. Good lacing. Subtle malt nose. Rich, almost syrupy body. Caramel malt followed by a surprising hop smack.

Almost like nugget nevtar. Great hop malt flavor. As good as a red as I have had.
