COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
At Heavy Seas, we brew a traditional English-style pale ale with our own East Coast twist: UK Fuggles and Goldings dominate the flavor of Powder Monkey, but has subtle notes of citrus and flower from Cascade hops added in the boil and hopback. Brass in color, Powder Monkey, like all of our beers, is well balanced: distinct bitterness and a slight malt sweetness characterize the taste. In 2010, it won a bronze medal at the World Beer Cup; in 2008, it won a silver medal at the Great American Beer Festival.

Slipstream (2218) - USA - DEC 14, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 26, 2007 Brass brew with a light head and a fresh aroma of hops and malt. This is a dry, not fruity, pale ale. Medium body, interesting hops, and a mild aftertaste. It is probably a good session beer, but does not give rise to shouts of pleasure or surprise. Solid stuff, but I was hoping for more from the brewers that came up with the magnificent Loose Cannon.

Skeegle (566) - Maryland, USA - DEC 4, 2007
Nice marriage of hops and malts in this pale. It is actually a bit creamy tasting. The hops are not overpowering, and the carbonation is not overdone. Golden color with a lasting pale head.

nearbeer (4124) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 18, 2007
Bottle from a sampler 6 pack, best by Jun 2007. Unclouded orange-amber with a small, but fairly lasting head. Nice citrus-pine aroma with some malt backing. Flavor is slightly malt on front, then more bitterness slowly creeping up. Nice slight astringent fruit aftertaste. Palate is light-medium, smooth and thirst-quenching. Well-balanced and nice session beer.

Nate (3806) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 21, 2007
Bottled. Mild caramel and biscuit aroma with a little paper. Soft neutral fruitiness and a bit of hops. Orange amber clear with off-white foamy lacing head. Medium watery body with medium carbonation and some light carbonic burn. Starts with carbonic acidity and light biscuit. Mild caramel. Stale papery hops follwed by mediocre bitter finish. Mild dry nutty after with not much else going on.
