obtained through my first trade ever! thanks to cjacobsen for this little gem!
A: copper, a bit hazy. a finger of head builds and then dies down leaving a little lace.
S: smells hoppy, sweet, and a little roasty.
T: first impression, up front a slight sweetness followed by hoppy. grapefruity and piney. a nice bitter finish really rounds it out well.
M: not too much body, just right. right amount of carbonation. refreshing.
O: great session beer. too bad it is not locally available. truly enjoyed this beer after work during a hot vegas day. glad that i have another sitting in the fridge with my name on it

Had on tap at Quenchers -- pint glass for $5. Pretty much a classic new Midwestern pale ale. More malt/caramel and a heavier body than Daisy Cutter, but definitely shy of something like Two Hearted. Perfect drinking beer for summer. Glad to have a new brew in town.

A-Peach/Apricot jelly-jam colored. A sandy hued sudsy head that has normal receding speed.
S-Malt. Orange oil. Citrus fruit peels. Lemongrass. Very fragrant. Highlight of the beer.
T-Essence of orange. Bitter hops that pepper the tongue nicely. Not overpowering. Grassy. Sweet caramel malt finish.
M-Light to light/medium body. Nothing mind blowing or bad. Does it's job.
O-A refreshing Pale Ale worthy of your dollar. I like the orange character throughout. A switch from the dominant grapefruit Pale Ale norm. Bonus points for smelling like a fresh citrus farm. Chicago's craft scene is a boomin'.

Poured from the can into a shaker pint glass. Handed to me by a fellow beer club member.
As a can collector I have been more and more impressed with the offerings in cans. Plus local beers are appealing to me too, so I was happy to find that my overall impression was a good one.
I look forward to smooth and flavorful brews and this was it. Not overly hoppy, it met the definition of an American Pale. It was a nice blend of flavors.
Dark orange in color, just the right about of carbonation, good head, and a very drinkable finish.
I also like meaningful names, and a quick check I see that the cut-throat is a type of finch.
Beer schooling. What a concept.

This showed up at a local grocery store with a good sized liquor/beer section that is well meaning but not overly inspired - solid choices, nothing to complain about at all, just not all that unusual.
But a few new beers showed up, a couple of which I used to have to hop the border for, and this one, from a different border, which looked interesting.
Pours a very nice amber / APA color, orange but not too see through at all. Spent time admiring before drinking, head was good, maybe 1 inch fairly white colored.
First sip was lip smacking, enjoyed for sure. Mouthfeel was great, only thing keeping it from being even higher than it is is a bit of a bitter aftertaste that I'd almost associate with an IPA, rather than a pale ale, but jeez who's counting?
Not much lacing, but that may have been due to serving temp, which was a little high for the one I am reviewing. Even with that, enjoyed it down to the last drop.
I would buy it again, although it was $10.50+ for a 4/16, which is not bad, but there were $8.99 4/16's at the same place that I would put on par. On the other hand, if I see Finch's on tap anywhere (they are from Chicago and I am in SW Wisco), I will have a tap for sure.
