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.

Long-lasting head, beautiful caramel color. Just enough hops in the nose, to let you know this is a real American pale ale. Goes down smooth, without biting your head off like some over-hopped pale ales. My favorite in this style, I only wish it was available locally on tap.

A good example of a pale ale. Very nice balance so that the malt stands up a bit to the hops. A good beer

This is a Pale Ale work of art. Watched a sixtel of this disappear at a party of mostly non-beer-drinkers! Smooth but not simplistic this PA gives a LOT of bang for the buck. Has become a staple around the WII system and seems perfect for a football/baseball/soccer tailgate.

Cask at Liam Flynn’s. Cloudy gold color, lotsa lacing. Very fruity scent. Nice and fruity hoppy taste with long term sweet and sour. Could drink it all night!

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.

Great beer, little aroma, with a nice hoppy bite. This would be great with some wings or some crabs...

Color of golden bronze. Aroma of caramel malt and hops. Taste is roasted syrupy malt up front with a clean peppery offset that leaves a crisp finish. Good. Maltier version of a pale ale. Refreshing. I'd buy a case. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap. A golden amber beer with a small but persistent head. Aroma was nice with elements of citrus but very little grain. I was disappointed in the taste. Too light and crips. A nice beer to quaff while eating a hamburger, but not a standout Pale Ale.
