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 gold-amber with a yellowish head. No malt or hop characters present in aroma, and this carries through to the flavor as well, except for a slight hint of bittering hops. Creamy on palate.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - JUL 24, 2005
Poured a golden color with a small white head. Malty aroma coupled with earthy hops. Flavor matches aroma with hops running through the length. A long mild biitter finish.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUL 22, 2005
Pours a golden bronze with a thin white head. Aroma is very subtle with a touch of English hops. Body is bittersweet, but mild and smooth. Not necessarily watery or thin, but very bland and uninteresting. Could definitely use more hops to be considered an APA in my book.

beeryum (652) - Norcross, Georgia, USA - JUL 21, 2005
Bottle, clear gold pour. Weak aroma with some slight malts and some hops. Flavor was similar, weakish malt and light hops, and a bitter finish. Not terribly impressed.

DocLock (8797) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 14, 2005
Deep gold pour, with medium white head. Solid hops in the aroma, along with a solid malt presence. Smooth, crisp finish with a final hop kick at culmination. Solid stuff.

jde123 (768) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 9, 2005
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.
