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 while dry-hopping during the brewing process. The predominant flavor and aroma of this beer comes from fresh American hops. CascaZilla gets its distinctive red color from a subtle addition of black malt, which also lends a hearty body and slight sweetness.
