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 havenít done so yet, treat yourself to Ithaca Beerís new monstrously hoppy Red Ale.

12 oz. bottle. Dark amber color with a medium offwhite head. Roasted malt, burnt caramel, light fruit and citrus aromas. Buttery mouthfeel, little sweet, but finishes bitter from the hops.

UPDATED: APR 20, 2014 This beer has a dark red color to it with a thick head on it. You can really smell the floral aroma of the hops. The taste was great & i would recommend this beer.

FishBizkit (234) - Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 18, 2013
Bottle. Pours a deep copper-red with an offwhite head that persists. Nose is nice. Citrusy and light caramel notes that actually work. somewhat fruity over all. On tasting, crisp bitterness and noted caramel character without being too sweet. Good citrusy cascades come through on the palate to balance it all out. Really nice Amber. -Fish!

A really solid beer. Can clearly taste the Cascade hops on this one, hence the name. A little hoppy for my taste but still a great beer overall.

BeerandBlues2 (9765) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JUN 25, 2013
Bottle at home. Pours clear dark amber with a medium, frothy off-white to light tan head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is nutty and cookie malt, light caramel notes, earthy, pine, and herbal hops with peach fruity esters. Flavor is malt and hop balanced initially with hop bitterness taking the lead by a nose, light dried fruits, and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Pours a chestnut brown with a full off white head. Aroma is unmistakeable cascade hop and maltiness. Taste is bready graininess, a touch of alcohol then passing to hop finish. Very well built and quite enjoyable.
