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.

Yankovitch333 (612) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 3, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 26, 2004 Pours a light amber with a thick white head. Nice floral hop aroma. Citrus fruits, lemon zest on the tongue. Nice bitter hop finish. A really good APA.

TheBeerGod (5315) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - NOV 3, 2003
Pours a translucent red-orange. Medium tan head. Nose is a weakened hop aroma. Seems fairly clean and grassy. Taste is hops but is crisp, almost lagerish. Little too much hops for that though. Smooth, almost non-existent, aftertaste. Fairly average, but not too bad.

jzzbassman (1516) - New Albany, Mississippi, USA - OCT 27, 2003
Poured with a nice reddish-yellow cast and a small head, which laced really well. Hops are not as evident in the aroma as they are in the flavor, particularly as it warms. Oily new grass hoppiness made it a nice example of the style. Went really well with spicy green chile chicken dish.

raymow (831) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 9, 2003
Mild, slightly hoppy aroma. Clear to pale golden color. Not much there in the flavor department - drinkable, but not a top choice.

Strykzone (5041) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - OCT 8, 2003
A really interesting beer. Both the flavor and the aroma changed while warming. The flavor held its own, but the aroma seemed to deteriorate. Lots of stuff in here to taste such as citrus and pine. Perhaps a bit of grapefruit as well. I liked the reddish hue but the flavor was the most enjoyable.

egajdzis (5385) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 4, 2003
Poured a copper color with a small off white head. Mild hoppy aroma. Slightly hoppy watery taste and mouthfeel. Funky after taste of metallic vegetables. Nothing special here

Silphium (3178) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - OCT 2, 2003
A decent APA for the session drinker. Piney hops notable in aroma and in the flavor, with a touch of citrus. Beer pours pale amber with a thin off-white head. Thin body. A good choice for "rushes" of the good beer fraternity.

ARMed (608) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 1, 2003
Not a robust head, but a nice lacing exists. Clear deep bronze beer with nice carbonation. This beer has an excellent flavor. Nice mildly bitter taste with a fresh minty finish. Overall, I really liked this crisp and very drinkable beer.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - SEP 30, 2003
Nice Orange color. Thin lasting head. Citrus hop aroma. Malt flavor does not last over the hops. Seems a bit watery. OK beer, but I wouldn't go out of my way.
