COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A full-bodied, bold Pale Ale brewed with a combination of hops from the Pacific Northwest to achieve a citrus, tropical fruit flavor and aroma. This is the "hoppiest" beer in our core line-up.

My main beer at the Bottom, if there isn’t somethign special on tap. Nice color, hoppy aroma, and easy to drink with just enough hop bite. Not as good as the seasonal American Dream but - a trusty standby for me.

Poured draft at the brewpub (Lombard, IL). Poured a dark golden color with a bit of a darkness to it. Nice substantial head that sticks around. Nose of sweetness and hoppy floral and fruit notes as well. Taste is a well balanced APA that was sufficient. Light caramel malts balanced with some decent hops was predictable, but a good predictability for myself. A decent APA that did a good job of keeping me interested in coming back.

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2009 Mug Club served at Yorktown. Cloudy, amber/orange color, with an off white, foamy head, and nice, clinging lace that spiraled down the inside of the mug. The aroma was floral, a little resin, sweet fruit, and mid-strength citrus. These notes in addition to a mellow hop bitterness, balance this medium bodied APA nicely. Cask pour 7/25/09: Although the nose was even more fragrant due to dry hopping, the head and lace were impressively thick and long lasting, and the flavor carried the consistent hop bitterness to finish; the body fell off quite a bit to more of a watery state. Consider the rating a push...not a pull.

On tap at Rock Bottom Yorktown. Rock Bottom Yorktown Powerhouse Pale Ale is a cloudy, yellow/orange, amber color with a thin, creamy off-white head. The flavor is wattery with some nice citrus flavors attributable to the hoppy undertones.

on tap at RB Yorktown, pours cloudy gold with white head. nose of piney, grassy, grapefruity hop notes. flavor is much of the same, actually pretty hopped up for an APA. very sessionable and surprising how hoppy this is for a regular line up RB beer. I also had this on cask and it was served at room temp and tasted infected. the cask score is 5/3/3/2/8=2.1.

Nice hazy gold/orange pour with minimal head. Nose of citrus, pine, notes of malt leak through. Flavor is similar a bit harsh but just a bit going down with slight overcarbonation. Solid drinking beer.
