The name CascaZilla (Cas-kuh-zil-uh) is a play on both the name of a gorge in Ithaca called Cascadilla and the monster amounts of Cascade Hops we use to make the beer. The predominant flavor and aroma of this beer comes from fresh American hops. CascaZilla gets its distinctive red color from a healthy portion of caramel malt, which also lends to the beer, a hearty body and sweetness. It is a hoppy red ale!

A good to very good beer. Red in color with a one finger head that reduces to a film of bubbles covering the enter top of the beer throughout. Liked the flowery hoppy backbone. Needed more IPA type punch. Smell of flowery hops and a bit of malt. Solid Red IPA. Smooth.
