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.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - JUN 16, 2006
12 oz bottle. Amber pourwith an off white head. Resiny pine nose, some grapefruit. Nice balance of hops and malts in the flavor, can it be bittersweet? Yes, it can! Bitter, sweet malt and pink grapefruit flavors dominate, with a light caramel in the background. More citrus in the finish, very nice!

Bottle, from Julio’s. Great nose, sweet. Pine & citrus, orangy, toffee. Clean reddish orange, Small head, faded to a ring, Ok lacing. Bittersweet flavor, like aroma but grapefruit kicks in strong to dominate. Medium body, creamy sticky mouthfeel, bitter finish. Went down quick

ABUSEDGOAT (2415) - California, USA - MAY 21, 2006
Sample at Julio’s beer festival: amber body. Grapefruity and other fruit noted hops in aroma. Some caramel. Solid example but I think it could have been more assertive and/or bigger.

11026 (1772) - Alabama, USA - MAY 18, 2006
Bottle from Thaichile. Pours a clear medium to deep amber color with a modest white head that fades quickly and leaves slight lacing behind. Pleasing hop aroma, plenty of pine and citrus, some caramel. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation. Full caramel sweetness is balanced and taken over by a piney hop flavor and moderate IBU’s. Fairly good.

feedmec00kies (49) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 14, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2006 medium white head, dark, reddish amber body. aromas of grapefruit, lychee/litchi, pine, vanilla, and something floral.. more artificial floral maybe. citrusy, slightly sweet, and a bit spicy (like arugula). flavor is a bit one-dimensional, and the body is pretty thin, but quite drinkable nonetheless.

SHIG (3604) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - MAY 12, 2006
Very nice red amber beer with a white head. Smell is very sweet and caramel malt is pronounced. Sourish at first with the floral caramel malt finish. Very tasty!

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 8, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 7, 2006 Bottle from Premier Gourmet. Pours amber red with nice off white head. Sweet caramel and floral hop aroma. Mouthfeel is a tad thin. Nicely balanced flavor of citrusy hops and sweet malt that finishes bitter, spicy, and slightly resinous. Pretty one dimensional, but that did not bother me. A tasty session that you can drink and not overanalyze.
