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.

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2014 Pours dark red with a creamy off white head and lots of lacing as it recedes. Smell of hops and more hops. Plenty of grassy, earthy pine and some notes of caramel and bread malt in the background. even a good bit of citrus here. Flavor is pine hops and a bit of candy sweet flavor, more pine and sweet citrus fruits. Very much reminds me of a DIPA, which I was not expecting. Lighter mouthfeel for that style though and finishes nice and dry and clean. Fantastic. New favorite red ale for me, but keep in mind that comes from a hop head. This is a world class brew and arguably the best thing that CCB makes relative to the style. Wow.

Has a rather decent hop scent, light sweet roast taste and it is alright for the style.

November 16, 2012 bottle shared by Brandon. Cloudy orangish pour with some head. Aroma and taste of hops and malt. One of my least favorite styles, but this actually wasnt too bad.

12 oz. bottle, sent from LateStart (thanks Jordan), pours an opaque dark amber with a small beige head. Nose is an orthodox amber, but with more hop character, revealing notes of dry caramel malts and dry woody hops. Flavour is very similar, with the caramel malt character feeling very dry due to the high hop content. There is a small hint of sweetness, but the body comes off quite dry. Highly drinkable and refreshing. Very solid amber.

Pours a nice brownish red color with a finger of sticky eggshell foam. Aromas are juicy grapefruit, cedar and spicy earthy malts. On the palate its brighter than most reds Ive had and the great juicy hop presence really punches up the flavors to a highly enjoyable level. Nice cedar and pine in the mid to late palate and a nice earthy bitter finish.

kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - NOV 9, 2012
12oz bottle, purchased from Luekens Liquors. Pours a deep, clear orange-amber color; creamy, light-tan head with nice retention and lacing. Juicy red fruitiness along with citrus and pine hop character; really generous aromatics for an amber, with its emphasis on the hops. Medium-full body; medium-high CO2; a bit of clean alcohol warmth coming through gives this a slightly leaner feel than it would otherwise have; reasonable acidity and effervesence; highly drinkable; following the aroma, plenty of red fruits and vinous alcohol and the generous doses of citrusy, piney hops; generally balanced overall, with its tilt toward bitterness; ok, a definite tilt toward bitterness. Juicy, tasty stuff. Lasting finish of citrusy bitterness and a toasty, lightly grainy core.

A - pours golden red with high fluffy head that dissipates quickly. Strong lacing. S - strong caramel and bread malts, over powering, hint of orange and soap. M - relatively heavy lightly syrupy feel. Malt heavy, lingering sticky mf. T - malty malty malty, caramel and vegetal malts. A bitter grassy grapefruit palate, to a lingering malty end. O - malt heavy red. 6 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
