COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Cutthroat Trout is the state fish of Utah and believed to be named after Cutthroat Pale Ale, Utah’s most popular craft brewed beer. (Ok, it is the other way around.) Uinta’s flagship beer, Cutthroat Pale Ale is a traditional Northwest American Style Pale Ale. The Cutthroat trout is a species of freshwater fish native to western North America, and more specifically to the Great Basin and Rocky Mountain regions. The Bonneville Cutthroat trout is a subspecies, native to Utah and named after Lake Bonneville, a prehistoric pluvial lake that covered much of present day Utah. The Great Salt Lake and Utah Lake are two remnants of Lake Bonneville. Today, Cutthroat trout is the game fish of the west and Cutthroat Pale Ale the catch of the day!

cprochak (590) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 9, 2010
Draft. Pours dark gold, huge frothy head that lingered. Nice floral and citrus aroma. Taste had a good honey sweetness, but then was just too bitter to be a balanced APA. Still a solid beer that is pretty drinkable.

Strykzone (4782) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - DEC 2, 2009
Thanks Hayduke! This beer pours the color of medium stained oak furniture. A smallish head has an orange tint and good retention. Thick sticky lacing. Caramel leads the flavor. Some pepper and bread. The hops provide some citrus but are not assertive. Lightly bitter malt flavors increase as the beer warms. Finish is thin and some rye finishes the glass. This is a great Pale Ale for a drinker with a sweet tooth (like me). I liked it.

Sledutah (4276) - Utah, USA - NOV 9, 2009
12oz bottle. Pours a dark copper color with white head and leaves light lace on the glass. Aroma is citrus and malt. Taste is malty with a touch of hops. Dry finish.

BOLTZ7555 (2780) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - OCT 11, 2009
Deep copper pour with a crimson hue and small ivory head that produces rings of lacing. Aroma is virtually non-existent and what is evident is dull citrus and a lot of caramel malt. Flavor isn’t at all "bright" and is instead muddled. Sweeter than it should be.

From the Jug at the GABF Colorado Convention Center, Denver 11/10/2008 Hop aroma. White head. Golden coloured and hoppy with a crisp and slightly dry malt finish.

Amber pour with white lacing. Enjoyable floral and citrus hops to go with my chicken! Bitter flavor.

FrostedMug (8) - California, USA - JUL 12, 2009 does not count
Redish amber color. Very adequate pale ale in all respects. Not as good as Squatter’s Full Suspension - but better than most ales.

hayduke (3317) - Eureka, California, USA - JUN 30, 2009
From a 12 oz bottle this poured a very clear gold with a small white head and good thick lacing. Nose of caramel malts with citrus hops. Medium mouthfeel. Flavor is a good balance between malts and hops, and finish is dry and lightly bitter. A very serviceable APA.

JMerritt (1767) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - JUN 10, 2009
Draught. Medium amber in color with a small off-white head that was lasting til the end of the glass. Grapefruit and peach fruity hop aroma. Moderate caramel flavor with light pine undertones lending a mild-to-moderate bitterness. Medium body. Worked pretty well with the pizza I ordered at Fire House in Logan, UT.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAY 13, 2009
Bottle. Pours an amber body with an off white head. Nutty and bready with hints of citrus and caramel. Thin body with not much going on.
