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

12 ounce bottle. Thanks Anthony! Pours a reddish amber with a small tan head. Aroma of citrus, pine, and malt. Taste is grapefruit, pine, malt, caramel, and spice. Good stuff!

Terminus (3626) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 17, 2012
Bottle-sampled at Abraxas in Miami, FL December 2012-pours deep amber/copper hue with a small soapy big bubble head with sparse lacing. nose is mostly toasted woody notes, resinous hops and big astringent malt tones. flavors exhibit the astringency between the big malts and hops-this is a very bold take on this style. has agressive hops however, i think the bottle i got was a bit on the old side. nonetheless, it was still a very solid amped up amber ale.

crajun (1200) - , Texas, USA - DEC 15, 2012
bottle recd in trade from codysjb. very similar to steel toe and Ballast point reds (and that is a compliment). rich amber and cloudy pour. nice lacing. aroma of strong malt and some grapefruit and pine. Taste is rich and malty with some big hops; kinda thought this was an ipa 1/2 the time...I would prefer my ambers more subdued but this is a good brew.

From a bottle poured at home. Pours a cloudy amber with a thick white head. Citrus and pine aroma. Spice needles and grapefruit zest. Lingering bitter finish.

chinchill (4512) - South Carolina, USA - DEC 14, 2012
Looks like an amber or red ale but smells [3.75] like a pale ale or IPA, with the hops far more evident than the malts. Still hoppy for style in tasting, with at least as much hop presence as the surprising nose suggests. The malt is a bit more obvious in tasting, but little enough to leave this a moderately bitter and quite hoppy "red" ale. Relatively high ABV is almost completely hidden in the flavor and aroma, but lends some harshness to the feel.

davey101 (751) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 7, 2012
12 oz bottle into a pint glass. I can just make out that its Aug 08 12. A - Pours a very hazy dark brown/red body with a two finger tan head. Great lacing and retention. There is a TON of floating bits of proteins and yeast. Ill chock that up to chill haze due to shipping in the winter though. S - Piney and tropical hops followed by bready sweet caramel malts. A bit spicy, like pumpernickel. Touch of the danky dank. T - Follows the nose closely. Tropical and resinous hops, caramel malt, molasses, and dark bread. Lingering sweetness with a light bitterness. M - Medium with a lot of carbonation. Dry finish. Highly drinkable given its abv. O - A very tasty red ale. The bold and tropical heavy hops and kept in check by plenty of rich bread and caramel notes. Great beer.

portableparty (2303) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - DEC 4, 2012
12 oz. bottle thanks smith4498. Pours amber red with a tight off white head that leaves a collar. Aroma has good grapefruit citrus hops with hints of caramel malt and light spice. Taste is solid bitter grapefruit hops and spice with a nice malt balance. Palate is medium crisp and chalky with a dry finish. Solid amber ale.

GTAEgeek (2046) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - DEC 4, 2012
12 oz. bottle. Dark brown with a small, tan head. Dried fruit, with notes of licorice, resin, and earth. Very sweet with a significant bitterness in the finish. Medium body with a sticky, clingy mouthfeel. Interesting, but not particularly tasty.

rejtable (2393) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 2, 2012
Pours light amber with a thin head hat quickly dissipates. Nose is sweet candy and a touch of pine hops. Aromas are sweet fruit, some floral, some light piney hops. Tastes are medium sweet and a medium bitter finish. Dangerously drinkable even north of 7%. Mouth is medium body with lively carbonation and a bit of a on acidic bite to the finish.
