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.

Bottle gift from SJ. This was ok. Nice notes of caramel malt, floral hop and bread, The finish was sweet, but not overly, and it was good.

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.

12oz bottle thanks to DrSilverworm along with the entrepreneur AndyReynolds - grapefruit nose. An amber? Really? Good hop taste.

DrSilverworm (7995) - 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 (745) - 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 (1168) - 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.

1/6/14. Come on, Noles! You can do this! The last 12oz bottle brought down by JBVatkeens. Sad day! :( Anyway, amber red pour with a small khaki head that fades to a ring. Leafy Cascade aroma, lots of citrus, very fresh hop character, mild caramel and biscuit. Milder, maltier flavor, biscuit, caramel, but a good hop bite to balance it out. Tasty stuff.

Best B: sept, 2011 Verbatim from notes: 16AUG11 A: Pours brown-red with a single finger of light caramel head. Excellent clarity. spotty lacing. S: Brown sugar, sweet caramel, a little chemical. Spicy simcoe and cascade feeling. T: Bitter and sharp. Spicy with a hint of banana. Hints of metallics. M: medium body with mod carb. Thick slick finish. O: Not bad. not my favorite from the brewery at all. I think maybe this would be better a few weeks younger. Serving type: bottle 08-18-2011

Theydon_Bois (11617) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2013
Bottle at home, from Beer Table Pantry NYC, 20/12/13. Pours a hazed marmalade orange/dark amber with a good sized dirty looking off white head that thins a little but settles down for the evening. Nose is caramel malt, dank hops, biscuit, red grapefruit, pine resin. Taste comprises caramel malt, orange pith, grapefruit, light mango, sticky pine resin. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi aggressive grassy hop bitterness in the closure. Solid hopped up amber !
