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.

4 week old can from a trade with a guy whos not on RB I think. Hazy dark amber-brownish color with creamy beige head. Aroma is piney, some tropical fruits, bready, a bit spicy malts. Aroma is still quite standard. Taste is huge starfruit, passionfruit, lots of juicy hops, only then some caramel malt base shines through. Light-bodied, maybe a bit too light even, but it has an oily texture. Medium carbonation. The aroma reminded me of, for instance, a 523 (which I usually get very fresh), but the flavour is so light-footed, fresh and lieblich, especially for this ABV. A real revelation!

Draft @ Brewery. Pours a clear reddish amber beer with a small off white head on top. Aroma has loads of red fruits, sweet sugars, mild citrus. Flavor is firmly bitter with loads of citrus fruits and tropical fruits with a side of caramel. Nicely carbonated, long light bitter aftertaste. Nice one.

Cristobal37 (848) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 31, 2016
On tap at House of brewz Ft Myers beach. Very malty caramel and apples aroma. Taste follows suit but with some resiny hops. Good but not my personal fave. Lots of sweetness and balanced dry hops but just doesnt come together for me.

Can: Hazy red/amber with a tall, thick, beige head. Toffee, pine, bread aroma. Taste is caramel malt, a little berry, resiny bittering.... Very malty and rich.....grows a little bready towards the end. Pretty good.

On tap @ The Flying Pig. Pours clear reddish copper with thin creamy off-white head. Aroma is sweet rich malt, light caramel; oaky and dry on the finish. Taste is rich, syrupy caramel malt, roasty throughout; dry, oaky, pleasantly bitter on the back. Not my favorite from Cigar City, but still delicious.

Thanks Kelly Sullivan (untappd). This was poured into a becher pint glass. The appearance had a dark burnt red color with a thin one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about thirty seconds leaving some messy lacing roaming all around the glass. The smell started off with a spectacular balance between the caramel / toffee / biscuity malts playing with citrus and slightly piney hops. The taste favors the malty sweetness just a tad more. Still, a nice bitterness roams in to partake in the flavor, yes, citrus/piney-ness. Nice balanced aftertaste and finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Carbonation seemed to run nice and low. Stickiness hits decently but not cloying. Overall, what a nice Amber/Red ale wonderfully balanced. Of course, Id have this again.

COD 12/11/15. Beautiful dark ruby pour with just a touch of cloudiness. Quite outstanding head volume, world class lacing and retention. Outstanding nose of Florida citrus (lemon, lime, orange), a touch of mango and a very light herbal pine over a solid malt base with caramel notes. Almost medium body that is quite smooth with a good amount of creaminess and a light oily character. Slightly above normal carbonation level with a bit of middle effervescence and a prickly finish. A quite outstanding atypical flavor profile that really pushes sweet Florida citrus to the forefront while maintaining a light airiness to it. It begins with a lemon lime blend over a subtle sweetness that is slightly tart. This flows into a very mildly bittered middle with a mango sub note. Caramel makes it strongest showing as the bitterness begins to fade but is quickly replaced with a sub current that has leather and tobacco elements. The finish is a slow fade of orange rind bitterness. Complex and delicious.
