Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: MisSigsFan on 10-17-2013

This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

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.

Pours a deep, dark golden copper color that appears almost grown in the glass with a two finger, off-white head that very slowly settles into a thick, lasting ring. Very good retention, taking a while to settle and coating the glass with soapy lacing on the way down.

Slightly floral hop aroma that's overpowered by a prominent sweet malt profile. Not much about the nose of this beer reminds me of an IPA/hoppy beer. Hardly any hop character at all with lots of sweet and leathery malt character. Sweet caramel and toffee with hints of bread, biscuit and dark fruit. Pretty bland.

Medium body with a blast of stale dirty hops that lingers over a prominent malt backbone into a bone dry finish. Earthy, soil-y and extremely bitter with piney, grassy hops countered by sweet and leathery malt notes. Hints of shoe leather and creek water followed by subtle caramel sweetness, toffee, dark fruit and stale bread. Astringent metallic finish that leaves a really unpleasant aftertaste. I'm not sure how old this beer is at this point but it isn't very good at all.

Aw crap. I had one drain pour already tonight and I might be heading for two. That hasn't happened in a very long time.

Pours almost as dark as a brown ale. Sticky nose that almost seems like hairspray. I'm barely drinking it so it's sitting here and the smell is mildly repugnant.

Tastes like watered down hairspray. Boozy and way too sickly sweet off malts. It's a mess. Not worth the effort or money at all.
