COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Tocobaga lived off the bounty of Tampa Bay hundreds of years before the arrival of the Spanish in the 1500ís. 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.

Sabe a fresas frescas, ciruelas, frambuesas. So many sweet fruits with a perfect malt balance to match the fruity hops. Otra cerveza perfecta de Cigar City!

This beer surprised me. I heard red ale or amber, and I thought bland. But it has such a strong fruity hop character, super strong in cascade hops, with no bitterness at all! This is the only perfect beer I've ever rated ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

So hoppy, I consider it an "Amber IPA". Intense citrus / pine aroma that translates well to the taste. One of my favorites.

Quite possibly the best red ale I have ever tasted. Smooth, flavorful, and a terrific after taste. As much as I like the Jai Alai, this is Cigar Cityís best beer.

From a 12 ounce bottle, pours a clear, copper color. Nose explodes with hints of caramel, grapefruit and pine. Taste is very balanced between the hops and malt backbone. Probably one of my favorite session beers.

The best red ale Iíve ever had. Generously hopped, but still bursting with red ale tones of darker fruits and hints of malty goodness.

Grapefruit and Citrusy aroma with a nice malty sweetness that finishes like a pine Tree. This is a great friggin red. A charismatic beer that is a beautiful and I surely like to snuggle up with next to a warm fire on a cold night or float in a pool with some little arm floated drinkin this on a hot Gulf Coast summer day. Versatile little badass beer.

12/25/10 growler. Poured a darker shade of ruby red. thick foamy head. clear. Great resin like hops to add dryness dense fruit flavors with toasty malt to settle it down. IMO very similar to SN celebration but fresher for me. I love balance and this is probably one of the best balanced beers I have had.

Pours a deep copper colour with red hints. The foam is creamy but donít lace the glass. Sweet, hoppy and a bit sour, Lovely brew,
