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.

Bottle. Pours a dark red with a little wispy head. Flavor is chocolatey followed by a typical red. Nice amber beer.

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...

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!

Bottle at home. Pour is murky amber with a frothy, long-lasting, off-white head and wonderful lacing. Tropical fruits upfront in the aroma, grapefruit, orange peel, mango, and pineapple with light notes of caramel on the backend. Taste is big grapefruit, orange peel, tangerine, light caramel, a touch of bread, and resin with a medium bitter finish. Medium body with medium-to-soft carbonation. Great beer, but really more like an India Red Ale or American Strong, than an amber. Anyhow, it is very delicious.

Bottle-how do they keep doing this? What a great beer and unexpected surprise. Looks more like a brown ale with a nice beige head and a good bit of lacing. Wow, a fruity, hoppy aroma hits right off the bat. The taste was fruity floating a nice base of caramel and malts. Nice, chewy finish with the right amount of bitterness. Great, great stuff. Produce place 1.79.

Bottle shared by Chaney. Thanks Brandon! The beer is russet brown, with orange to crimson highlights. The head is an inch thick, composed of dense, off white sea foam. The snifter is utterly caked with lacing. The aroma brings some nice hop character, along with a faint malt presence. The scent is reminiscent of many Cigar City brews I have had, with notes of dense smoke. Great flavor and quite interesting. Not your ordinary red ale. The smoke and hop flavors are integrated elegantly. This beer is great for sipping or rapid consumption. Medium bodied with plenty of carbonation. Alcohol content is minimal. Overall, an interesting and unique brew. Fun to drink. I am glad for the opportunity to sample this. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 07-28-2011

Great tasting amber. Poured a copper color with just a little bit of head. The aroma was pine resin, citrus, and a malt wallop. Taste followed and had a excellent balance of malt and hops. Almost a spiciness...unusual for a red ale. Mouthfeel was nice, a little thick, but it worked. Very drinkable. Great stuff.

12oz bottle I picked up on my way through Orlando. Pours hazy copper with off-white head. Aromas of bright citrus, tropical fruits, resiny hops, and some sweet toasted malts. Flavors of grapefruit, resiny hops, mango, some pine, caramel and toasted malts. Nice sweet malty backbone to match hop profile. About as good as an amber can get in my opinion.
