Ithaca Cascazilla

Ithaca Cascazilla
Here is what the Brewer Says:
The name CascaZilla 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!
2-Row, Crystal, Black
Cascade, Chinook, Crystal
Dry hop:
Cascade, Amarillo

My Thoughts: The smell of this beer is top notch, both sweet and hoppy at the same time.  The beer has a redish tint to it when poured.   The unique initial flavor it has comes from the malt used in its brewing.   The Malt hits you first and after that initial sweetness on your palate you are left with the hops kicking in and giving you an amazing flavor.  The beer has a great mixture of hop and malt/sweetness. Not much more to say than this is a well balanced Red Hop/Malt beer.  That I'd be happy to have again and again thanks to its very smooth body and carbonation!
