Pours a clear, copper color. One inch head of an off-white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of sweet malt, caramel malt, hint of pale malt, piney hops, and slight citrus hops. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Fits the style of an American Pale Ale. Tastes of caramel malt, sweet malt, hint of pale malt, slight citrus hops, and slight piney hops. Overall, good appearance, and average in all other aspects.

Worth drinking but not buying again... way too many pale ales that would blow this away.

Brought back from Utah to Missouri. A tasty APA, but seemed a little light, perhaps due to the lower alcohol content. This is a good APA with a lighter alcohol content.

Review dates: October/November 2015. Bottles bought at local (Salt Lake City) stores.

Cutthroat is one of my favorite local beers. It is light for an APA and doesn't have the texture of more "hoppy" beers, but the taste is smooth without a lot of bitterness.

It pours into a glass (from a bottle) with a dark amber glow. My bottles poured clear without cloudiness. Easy pour produces a finger to two of a caramel colored head. Smell is hoppy with a touch of citrus. Taste is a bit light, but enjoyable.

Overall an affordable, very drinkable APA. Often criticized (unfairly?) for the low (4%) alcohol content, but I find it's the beer I reach for most often when I relaxing around the house.

Has a dull Amber appearance to it with half to 1 finger head with little retention. No real bitterness to it and has a milky feel to it, not much carbonation. Considering the low amount of alcohol it isn't too bad.
