COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Twice the experience of Cascazilla, we brewed Double Zilla with too many malts to list and an excess of American hops. Russet color, aggressively hoppy aroma & flavor, rich body, and fiery finish. ABV 11%

Ron (2650) - Rochester, New York, USA - DEC 6, 2013
Bottle. Cloudy reddish color with a small tan head. huge, wet, hop aroma. Some caramel sweetness in the background. first taste is a real mix of flavors to sort out. Hops, sweetness. Bit of a burn in the finish offset by the touch of sweetness and hops.

j12601 (6743) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 30, 2013
Bottle at Dadsgiving! Pours a hazed amber brown with a thin white head. A bit of malt, faint hops. Sweet initially, medium-bodied, spicy and malty, hoppy and bitter but not right away. Finishes still sweet with some more malt and a bit of grapefruit. Tasty enough but still too sweet.

Bottle. Pours deep amber with a beige head. Malty sweet base, toffee, and earthy and floral hops. A bit over the top, but not bad.

italianjohn (2357) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 26, 2013
Clear deep garnet/maroon pour with a thin off white head .... aroma of smokey malts, caramel, roasted malts and some hints of earthy hops .... taste is of smoked and roasted malts with some caramel and light citrusy/piney hops and some booze is definitely evident .... finish is dry bitter and roasted with a chewy caramel malt ... interesting and very much like a wee heavy to me .... eh

boxofrane (2202) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 21, 2013
Bottle at craft ale house. Pours deep mahogany with with a small tan head that quickly dissipates. The aroma has a mix of nutty maltiness and hoppy astringency. The taste is almost a mix of ipa and brown ale. Semi bitter with a nutty sweet finish.

reggiedunlop (3181) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 20, 2013
pours a deep chestnut/ruby color with a thick tan head. aroma is very caramely and roasty with some earthy and light citrusy hops. flavor is earthy/boozy up front with lots of roastiness, roasty bitterness, slight caramel and nuttiness...almost dark chocolate Mouthfeel is medium/full and resinous with a roasty/earthy and dry...warming to something like dark chocolate. well made but too malty for me.

Changed (360) - Ithaca, New York, USA - NOV 18, 2013
12oz bottle from FLBC. Pours syrupy, dark amber, small tan head. Aroma is largely smoke. Flavor is smokey, but less so, tons of malt, sweet sweet booziness, and a little dry hop finish. Upon warming, the booze is quite noticeable. Drink it slow, on a cold night, and don’t consider it anything like a DIP. Barleywine it is, like the Millenium Oak Aged from a little south of here...

Ed5388 (2197) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - NOV 15, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a muddy dark amber color with a small foamy tan head. Aroma of red grapefruit, pineapple, caramel, and roasted malt. Taste of syrupy burnt caramel, bitter red grapefruit, red grapes, and roasted malt. Mouthfeel is extra thick, syrupy, and boozy. Getting more vinous as it warms.
