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.

Pours a nice goldenrod color, lots of bubbles with a vigorous, but short-lived head. Aroma is somewhat sweet, not too overpowering so I like it. Flavor is a little weak, with a metallic fishy taste...odd. Overall itís alright, but has room for improvment.

kujo9 (1095) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - MAR 2, 2005
12 oz bottle: Medium clear amber w/ a thin, but lasting off white head. Herbal grassy aroma @ first, turns a little papery & woody. Very light toasty malt and hints of caramel. Lemony citrus fruit from hops as it warms. Well balanced w/ a citrusy hop flavor at first, very lemony. Sweetness up front w/ the hop flavor, but also papery flavors come through as though aged & oxidized; light toasted malt. No caramel, not even hints; medium fruity flavor w/ a semi sweet finish; aftertaste is cardboardy & bland. Lighter body, smooth, lower carbonation. Drinkable but thin on flavor! Age is probably a factor in this one, but it still seemed mediocre at best.

JFGrind (1909) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 20, 2005
Typical golden APA color with a nice hop (cascade?) aroma. Overall light on the bitterness, I preferred this beer frost chilled (great while shovelling snow). Ice cold this APA was a crisp and snappy.

thehinge (283) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JAN 15, 2005
Aroma was not impressive...canít describe it at all. Flavor is kind of caramelly....nothing special. Dark tan in appearance with a head that hung around for a while. Keep looking for a better pale ale is what I say.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - DEC 4, 2004
Dark goledn and clear, short head an light lacing. Aroma does have some citrus hop to it - thatís a good sign! Unfoturnately, thereí not an abundance of taste here - malts are sweet and caramel but kind of watery bodied. There is a decent hop ending, but not enough to make up for the lack of body.
