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.

llcooldave (1187) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - JUL 19, 2008
Hoppy aroma right out of the bottle. Piney/soapy aroma. Slightly cloudy in appearance. Amber in color with a touch of copper. Light and bubbly on the palate, flavor is a nice clean upfront bitter hops. Definitely has floral notes to it. Finishes clean. Overall this is a nice find. I’d drink this more often if it was available down here in Texas.

Gregis (1281) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - JUN 29, 2008
Bottle purchased at Corral Liquors in Granite City, IL. Pours a crystal clear amber with a fairly dense, frothy off-white head that leaves behind patchy lace. The nose is of flinty, toasted pale malt and sharp, earthy hops. On the light side of medium-bodied and flinty with a mildly bitter finish. The flavor follows the nose with a lightly dry and bitter finish. This one seems a bit more like a British Pale than an APA, but itís a fairly quaffable brew regardless of its style.

vyvvy (5365) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUN 20, 2008
Pours clear copper with a tan head. The aroma has lots of caramel malt, hints of hops and a bit buttery. Medium crisp body with very sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with an unwelcome bit of metallic malt, caramel and dry butterscotch. The finish is lightly butter and tinny. Nothing Iíll come back to revisit.

SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - MAY 28, 2008
12 oz bottle: Pours a nice, clear amber with a finger thick head. The aroma offers earthy malt that is thick with caramel sweetness. A nice dose of citrusy hops ride on top. A strong bitterness opens the body, with a splash of apricot, peach and lemony hops following. The sweet caramel malts show itself again in the finish, adding a touch of sweetness to balance the citrus. A classic APA that is well balanced and very drinkable.

thegreenrooster (3848) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 13, 2008
Pour is an orange with a small white head. Aroma is definatly hopped with some citrus and pine. Flavor is also decent with again some pine hops and a bit of chocolate malts. Finish is a little bitter and thick. Better than most.

Draft at the brewery tour. This was better than I expected. Very hoppy and good.
