3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can thank to Brigadier! Dirty dark tan/orange pour, 1/4 inch lasting frothy carbonation and an aroma of very herbal hops. Flavor is bitter orange rind, more herbal hops, dry on the finish and very malty all the way through. Not bad.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Had a generous 6 oz. sample of this poured during the Finch’s brewery tour (on tap).
A: Pours a cloudy light copper with an off-white 1.5 finger head that leaves a nice webbed lacing down the sample glass.
S: Upfront fruitiness from the hops with a nice malty backbone.
T: Taste is similar to the nose. Nice hops with a caramel malt backbone. A little fruit is mixed in as well, but it’s very very light.
M: Clean, crisp and refreshing with a medium carbonation. As with some of the other Finch brews the taste is nice upfront, but blands out on the palate after each sip.
O: Another refreshing brew from Finch’s. I’m really excited for them to be start expanding their line-up in the next year.
Serving type: on-tap

I’ve tried this several times and this four pack of cans seems to be "off" in flavor. Usually this is a some what malty APA with a solid hop bitterness enhanced with the addition of orange zest. All of the times that I’ve had this, save this one, it has been a very sessionable brew that is easy to drink. Today I’m finding very tart green apple in the mix. Cutthroat has been one of our favorite beach brews.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly better than average pale ale. Not much to distinguish itself. Sweet caramel and the piney hops are both understated, perhaps too much and there was a musky staleness I didn’t particularly like. Tried with Dave and Breanna at the Hopleaf in Chicago, Aug. 2012.

Draft at bottles 101. Pours an amber hue with a thins white head. Aroma of sweet malt and a not much hop. Tastes of caramel malt with a hint of vanilla. A very nice Oktoberfest. One of the more drinkable I have had in the style.
