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!

bitbucket (2159) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - JUN 22, 2008
On tap a the Zion Pizza & Noodle Co, located in the heart of Springdale Utah, gateway to Zion National Park. Pours clear dark gold with a lacy white head. Medium body and light carbonation. Citrus and peach nose, and a soft peachy quality to the taste, which sits nicely beside the bread and citrus. A refreshing and super-sessionable beer for hot days.

JorisPPattyn (7773) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 25, 2008
Foxy-amber with a yellowish head. Toffee and faraway hops, a bit nutty in character. Nutty again in the taste, bready, but with a watery finish, falling flat. Bit spritzy, but also a bit empty. Ho-hum, not really great.

pinkzambia (1427) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 12, 2008
Tap: Like swoopjones, I experienced the lighter ABV as well. Dark gold/copper color with a small off-white head. Sweet hop aroma with a mild hop flavor. it has a nice full-bodied finish.

swoopjones (5603) - Buffalo, New York, USA - FEB 11, 2008
On tap. Decent APA. Light ABV due to UTAH laws. Amber colored pour with decent piney & citrus aroma. Malts balance well. Nice session APA

kyzr (1147) - Belgrade, Montana, USA - DEC 8, 2007
Both bottle and on tap through out SLC. Amber pour with good sized off-white head. Decent hoppy nose, with some roasted sugar. Hoppy up front, that flows to a malty finish. Medium body, meant for a hot summer day. Clean finish.

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 7, 2007
Poured a nice looking, medium bodied amber/red body with a nice frothy white head. Aroma is bitter grapefruit and mild carmel. Flavor was the same metalic hop taste I’ve found in a lot of their brews but it doesn’t destroy the taste this time. I made it through most of the bottle before I gave up and opened something else.

5000 (6180) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 9, 2007
Bottle: Deep amber, large frothy off-white head, fairly nice lacing.   Astringent malts on the nose, very minor citrus rind, slight tea leaf.   Watery is the first thing that comes to mind on this one.   Has aspects of burnt nuts too.   Otherwise watery malt, very little hop character but I spoze enough to make it a Pale Ale.   Body and mouthfeel are less than stellar.   Very uninteresting, and less than average.   Overall a litle gritty and watery.   Blech...

The Dan Journal #123. Tasted 10/23/07. 12oz bottle. Filtered with an amber honey hue. Ring of off-white head. Caramel toasty aromas. Medium bodied and sweet sticky malt flavors. Grapefruity hops. Spicy with mellow melding. Tasty!

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - OCT 31, 2007
On tap at the Tram Club at Snowbird, UT. Have also enjoyed from a 12 oz bottle. This is probably the best of the "Utah beer" I have sampled so far. It’s very light and dry, but with complex flavors. Nuts, hops and citrus. A refreshing Summer brew.

douglas88 (5789) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 24, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 11, 2008 Pours a deep amber, with a good head. The taste is quite complex; a rich malt, a almost spicy hop, and a citrus taste that all mesh well. Good brew.
