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.

KajII (782) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - OCT 30, 2012
12oz Bottle. The pour was a hazy medium caramel brown with a small (1 finger or less) off white rocky head that reduced to a large puddle and medium collar, with very good streaky lacing. The aroma was of a light bread malt, pine and citrus hops and a soapy yeast with notes of caramel, citrus (grapefruit) and a mild fruity ester. It tasted lightly bitter with a nice malty sweetness, a hint of caramel and a slight fruitiness early on, and then it became very hoppy with a big grapefruit presence towards the end. The flavor was about average in duration with a slightly sweet hoppy citrus taste that was left to hang out a tad longer. Mouthfeel was almost medium in body and dry in texture with a moderate carbonation. Overall this was a brew that possessed a bold hoppiness with mild fruity sweetness and a smooth drinkability. This one a really enjoyed and plan on drinking again...

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 (30) - 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 (575) - 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 (249) - 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.

Tap. Murky red. Good lacing. Subtle malt nose. Rich, almost syrupy body. Caramel malt followed by a surprising hop smack.

BroSpud (1684) - , Massachusetts, USA - JUL 23, 2014
12oz can. Pours a brownish red with a tan head. Slightly sweet with a nice hoppiness to it. Another fine brew from CCB. Barely remember this one it went down so fast.
