Served cold in a shaker pint at Hops & Pie in Denver.
Tocobaga is a beautiful hazy red color with a thin layer of tight creamy head.
Aroma immediately lets you know that this is going to be a hoppy red. Citrusy, piney, and a little bit malty sweet.
Flavor is really something special. It's such a great balance of malty red ale and big hop flavor. It doesn't knock you out with bitterness but gives you lots of hop goodness.
Mouthfeel is amazingly smooth and easy drinking for a strong hoppy beer.
Overall this is such an amazing beer. Flavor and mouthfeel are spot on. I've always wondered if Cigar City beers were overrated but, if this is anything to go by, they've earned their hype.
Serving type: on-tap

A nice extra in a recent trade. Poured from 12 oz can into tulip glass.
A: Ruby tinted brown with a generous 3 finger fluffy white head that left some nice chunky lacing.
S: Resiny hops, oranges, caramel.
T: A nice balance of citrus notes with bitterness from the hops. A bit of sweetness creeps in at the last minute.
M: Medium body with a good level of carbonation. Easy drinking brew.
O: This a nicely balanced red ale. Would be a nice one to have 6 or 12 on the boat for a nice day of fishing...
