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!

Picked this up on our trip to VT. Bought at a Wal-mart and I was carded. Should I be flattered or hurt?
The aroma has lost some of it's hop punch in the passing weeks. Still there but malt character shows greater presence. Grassy hop and rich kinda' sweet caramelly malt. Rich - did I say that already?
Nice full tan head and a cloudy reddish amber liquid.
Good mix of malt and hops. Nice bitterness bite without excess but good stamina. Clear malt richness and not too sweet. Clear hop flavor of a grassy nature in middle through the finish.
Heavier body and nice mouthfeel with a moderate amount of carbonation.
Solid. Very solid.
