This is not brewed with tobacco or Spanish cedar. I would recommend a complex hop schedule (ie jai lai) and the definite use of simcoe. This beer is juicy with hop flavor! One of my favorites but we just moved from Tampa to NY and I haven't seen it yet.

This is what I was given via email from Wayne, their brewer.

"We use 2-row, C60L, Dark Chocolate, Vienna and Munich.

We hop it with Vanguard, Amarillo, Centennial, Willamette, Pacifica, Cascade and Citra.

OG is 18 plato. About 65 IBUs."

I haven't been to the brewery in a while, but I seem to remember that they use Rahr 2Row, and Weyermann for the "German-style" malts. Crystal and Dark Chocolate may be Briess (their Choc 420L, not the regular 350).

that's a crazy hop schedule, I'm going to have to reformulate and give it another go.

The original recipe I posted was great, but it wasn't Tocobaga.

This beer definitely uses mostly Simcoe in the dry hop, very distinct. If you get a close malt bill I'd be interested to, as this is IMO their best year rounder, a damn fine beer.

According to Wayne the head brewer at CC it doesn't use Simcoe.

Yeah, I saw that post after I wrote this... you'd think I was new at this. I could swear every time I drink that all I get is Simcoe on the aroma, you know how distinct it smells, pine citrus with that "catty" ness to it. But i've been wrong before.
