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.

Thaichile (599) - 10aFly, New Jersey, USA - APR 22, 2006
Bottle. Pours a darker red with a pretty decent head. Nice floral hop nose. Good malt backbone for this hopped up red ale. Sweetness just adds to the hop opposition. Fairly balanced with some bittering. A good beer and interesting since its a red.

MonsterMash (58) - North Tonowanda, New York, USA - APR 21, 2006
Malty for an IPA or hoppy for a red ale this is a drinkable, balanced brew with some hop kick. Thin drinking but good taste.

From bottle. I’m at Ithaca College, so I love to support local business. This is excellent! Nice rich red color with thin but resilient head. Aroma of sharp citrus. Flavor of fruit and trees. LOTS of hops, good bitterness, great beer!

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - APR 2, 2006
On cask at Delaneys. Pours out an opaque copper with a frothy head and low carbonation. Smells of oranges and lemons with some grassey notes. Tastes lightly orangey with nice pine hops. Very drinkable.

zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - MAR 29, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2008 (draft @ The Old Toad - Rochester, NY) Nice and clear ruby red pour with about a half inch of white foam. Aroma is loaded with hops. Lots and lots of hops with a slight sweet hint thrown in at the end. The taste begins with a mouthful of hops and a nice sweet balance. The middle is very hoppy and floral with a smooth and hoppy finish. The aftertaste doesn’t stick around as long as I thought it would. Very nice.

Had this on tap at the brewery. The pine hops are nearly overwhelming, disguising any other flavors that may be present. It tastes to me like they tried to hop this a little too much and never found the correct balance. However, it tends to run at a reasonable price, and is something i’d gladly drink hanging out in a bar.

hopscotch (10642) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 4, 2006
Bottle... Clear, copper ale with orange highlights. Small, fizzy, off-white head. Decent retention. The nose is of pure, fresh, cascade hops. Nothing intricate or complex, but what’s not to like? Tons of grapefruit and light pine. The flavor is medium bitter and a touch salty. Nice, but a little thin. Light to medium-bodied with fizzy carbonation. Finishes bitter and dry.
