On tap at Zion Lodge, Zion Canyon, Utah.

Appearance: Reddish brownish amber, clear, modest head. Served in a plastic glass.

Aroma: Lots of malty aromas married with a nice balancing of hops.

Taste: As in the aroma, a nice malty flavour with some chewy soft spiciness and a surprising amount of hop, giving some good bitterness. Tastes somewhat like a best bitter style with a north american freshness to it. Nice. You wouldn't guess that this is only 4% because of Utah state restrictions.

Mouthfeel: Medium, mostly remember it as refreshing because it was 38/100 degrees that day.

Drinkability: I'd have this again. An excellent example of how to get around the limitations of strength and still create a delicious beer.

This is my default session beer here in Salt Lake City. I'm finding a surprising number of local options here in this beer-strangled town, but I keep coming back to Cutthroat. This ale pours a deep, copperish red and has a nice, thick head. The taste, at least to me, is notably full and strong, with a really nice bitterness to it--but it can be too bitter for many. The beer's real strong point, however, is in its drinkability. You simply don't get sick of it. It continues to be a refreshing, interesting and livable taste all evening long.

Let's start off and say, this beer is a very good flagship crafted beer. I think a lot of hop heads and their palates might over look a beer like this. This beer is good, very well crafted and fits the APA catagory quit well. Very smooth drinking, not to hoppy, not to bitter and goes down very nice. On the nose, very tropical flavors coming through. Grapefruit, woodchips, light citrus, orange peel, very little dankness, amber honey, pine and malt backbone. It has a dry finish and goes down very smooth. Overall, very good beer in this craft beer world. Thumbs up to this craft beer.

when I first tried cutthroat it wasn't as appealing at first as it now is as far as taste goes. it took me a couple tries to get used to the taste it was a little on the bitter side hade a citrus taste to it . Great amber looks with a white head on it. Nice lacing down the sides. However Cutthroat is now at the top of my drinking lists for this month

This beer has a great copper hue.. A finger and a half of lacing.

The aroma is of pine notes and a bit of grain.

Nice firm hop bitterness, clean hoppy finish. Slight malt back ground. The hop bitterness lingers.

Mouth feel is great.

This beer is great on a hot summer day. This is one of my favorite pales out of salt lake.

Drank this at their brewery pub in Salt Lake. I really liked this beer. the Brew had great color in wonderful glass. The hops were just right and present in sufficient amount. Balanced pale ale results apparently from balanced malts and hops. Good finish.
