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.

UPDATED: MAR 24, 2015 Pours copper with white head. Citrus aroma with biscuit malt and floral spice. Flavor is dry caramel malt with biscuit notes followed by citrus & floral hops. Really nice English pale ale. Could throw a few of these back.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- Malt and fruit with some hops, pretty good. Appearance- A nice light brownish color that has a small white head. Taste- Has a nice sweet flavor that is followed by the malt and hops. Palate- This is a light-to-medium bodied beer with light carbonation. Overall- A really good English Pale Ale, not much love on the beer sites. but I quite enjoyed it

Pours a clear copper with a thin soapy head. Weak hop aromas. Flavor is a bit dull as well, some hop bite but very weak. Not impressed.

Fairly basic for a pale ale. Tastes more like a lager with some subtle hop additions. Very thick pale ale, how I usually like them. The aftertaste isn't bitter at all which is nice. Not offensive and It's not half bad.

3.1
RedSox2004 (1866) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - JAN 22, 2015
Dark amber with a one finger head and modest lace. Aromas of toast, caramelized malts, honey, dark fruit and some grassy hops. Taste is similar, mostly sweet caramel and toast with only a whiff of bitters. Light to medium body, minimal carbonation, thin mouthfeel and a sweetish finish.

Dorwart (2583) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - DEC 30, 2014
Thin frothy white head of fine bubbles. Light orange and citrus aroma with some light cereal grains and biscuits. Color is a dark copper. Thin palate and flavor. Tea, light roasted grains, grapefruit pith and lemon. And a rather astringent and harsh late bitterness which is making the underside of my tongue tingle. Needs more of a malt backbone to offset the bitterness. An ok but unbalanced pale ale.

cask at Mr Goodbar, OK, simple english styled pale, mild bitterness, biscuity, earthy, malty backbone. fits the style

3.1
Quick3Beers (1200) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 18, 2014
Of the three heavy seas beers ice tries so far, this is the one so far that seems like a let down. Better than most American lagers, but otherwise I would not necessarily reach for it.
