COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The name CascaZilla is a play on both the name of our local Cascadilla Gorge and the monster amounts of Cascade hops in this beer. This red ale gets its distinctive color from a healthy portion of caramel malt, which also lends some body and sweetness to the beer. The predominant flavor and aromoa of this beer, however, is brought to you by the fresh American hops. If you haven’t done so yet, treat yourself to Ithaca Beer’s new monstrously hoppy Red Ale.

Westchesterco (898) - mclean, Virginia, USA - FEB 20, 2014
Poured and shared a bottle it is a clear holden beer with a creamy white head. The aroma is peachy and the taste is citrus that resonated bitter on the palate

b3shine (5305) - Indiana, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Bottle to pint. Looks good for the style; a translucent mahogany with off-white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells solid too; caramel malt and bitter hops. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

DrSilverworm (6284) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 24, 2014
12oz bottle. Best before notch is on "march". Mostly clear amber red color. Thin bubbly off-white head. Ropes and dots of lace. Bigger body. Smooth, crisp, lighter carbonation. Good moderate to bigger bitter taste, little sweet... Finishes dry. Nice tropical fruit aroma, pine, grassiness. Lightly spiciness. Good toasty malt. Impressive stuff! Much better than expected.

Mep3222 (471) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Malty aroma, with a bit if roasted malt and some hops. Flavor is full and pretty balanced. Malty with a dry hop finish. Actually quite enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Barreras (968) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - JAN 10, 2014
Pours a copper color with an orange hue. Aroma is upfront with hops hitting the nose. Taste is truly of an IPA with grapefruit bitterness mixed with floral hops. A distinct bite of bitterness of overloaded bitter happiness which dissipates nicely to a clean finish.
