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.

    Aroma: 7 | Appearance: 6 | Mouthfeel: 5 | Flavor: 6 | Overall: 6

    Dark amber-copper pour with a moderate white head that produces nice lacing with good retention. Not much aroma with a bit of grain. More malt than hop in the flavor - a little disappointing, but still not bad. Slightly thin textured.

    Aroma: 8 | Appearance: 6 | Mouthfeel: 6 | Flavor: 7 | Overall: 7

    Pours a clear amber on the darkish side with a thick and fairly persistent pale buff head. Aroma is not strong, but the malty and subtle fruity notes promise an at least palatable beer. Flavor is mainly malty, while subtle fruity and woody hop tones take their turn on the palate. Texture is thin but fairly fizzy. Get your monkey powdered.
