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.

Nejhleader (1560) - Lemoyne, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 28, 2006
slightly hoppy aroma, light orangish brown colour, strong carbonation, does have a nice bite to the finish.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - FEB 22, 2006
Pours dark orange with a fully receding off-white head. Aroma of grapefruit, ctirus, and toasted malts. Taste is toasted bread malts and mild citrusy hops. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and slightly resinous with lively carbonation. Nice ale with moderate hopping.

TheBeerLover (1027) - DC Metro Area, USA - FEB 14, 2006
Straight foward craft brew, one brewed with the intent to appeal to those who want to dip their toe into craft beer. Has enough flavor to get a pass from a beer geek, but isn’t Clipper City’s best effort. Pours to a deep golden color, with a thick white head, and a good bit of carbonation. Nose has touches of pale malt, and flowery hop aroma. Palate is firm, with crisp pale malt flavor, and light esters. Finishes with some light pale malt flavor up front, then ends with a mild hop bite. Well made, but nothing exceptional here. Good drinking beer, and food friendly.

Darkover (1538) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 10, 2006
Copper color with a big beige head. Malt aroma is similar to a macro lager. Flaver is much better, with plenty of English hops all the way to the finish.

"Poured a nice copper color with a medium head. smelled of hops. Typical pale ale. Wasn’t anything i would go looking for, but wouldn’t turn it down if handed to me."

Bottle-Pours cloudy amber color w/an off white, foamy head. Floral, grainy aroma. Heavy hops up front w/nothing to balance it out, like a lot of pale ales. Nothing special. I wouldn’t buy it, but I would drink it if offered.

this is not a bad beer but it does not really stand out to me has some bitterness to it but nothing that you would want to keep buying for what they are charging.

3.2
Oakes (17684) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 12, 2005
Copper colour. Woody, slighlty piney hops meet toasty, breadcrusty malts in the nose. Light bitterness with a juicy malt character. Leans towards woodiness.

2.6
agl108 (1242) - Upper St. Clair, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 28, 2005
12 oz. bottle. Pours a very clear amber. Little aroma. No hop character in the nose or the flavor. Did they forget to add them to the boil? Watery and very little malts in this one. Easy drinking and lower bitterness compared to other APAs. Forgettable.

2.8
brewrater (92) - uniontown, Ohio, USA - SEP 9, 2005
Nothing bad but nothing exciting. Falls into the wasteland of costing more than micro’s but not as good as the crafts. Not a APA really but good enough to drink if its this or the Miller or Bud boys.
