COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The pure water we receive from the East Branch of the Brandywine Creek that begins its journey to us just under 14 miles from where we brew with it. We’ll be celebrating this water (insert your lite beer joke here) with our anniversary beer, Headwaters Pale Ale, due to be released February 15, 2011. Now, considering that beer is the product of four simple ingredients and the three other than water rely on water for their existence, we’ve had a fair amount of latitude in paying homage to water in our beer. So, we’ve played all of our cards deftly, bringing the hops, malt and yeast in harmony, with our great local water as the conductor in Headwaters Pale Ale.

hotstuff (4413) - Indiana, USA - MAR 15, 2012
Bottle purchased at Siciliano’s in Grand Rapids, MI. Pours a medium sized white head that mostly diminished, hazy body, fair amount of lacing, fizzy, fast-rising carbonation, and a golden hue. The aroma is malty, hint of caramel, pine, earthy and grapefruit hops. The flavor is mildly bitter, malty, pine and earthy. The mouthfeel is lightly tingly and this is a medium bodied APA. Overall, this beer is very quaffable, worthy of a try, and not overly hoppy tasting.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAR 10, 2012
This pours a clear golden body, lively carbonated, with a modest white head. The nose is quite hoppy with scents of pine, grapefruit, and zest... with a dash of butterscotch, sadly. That fades in the flavor, leaving a light grainy malt with citrusy hops and a satisfying level of bitterness. Not bad.

Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 10, 2012
Draft at The Happy Gnome. Pours clear honey-gold, thin white head, great lacing. Nose is tea-like, perfumed hops, very sweet malt, grass, earth. Flavours of mandarin and navel oranges; very mellow, grassy and sweet. Like a glass of melonade; a bit of spice to off-set the melon-rush. A really tasty little brew.

hesscabob (9) - - MAR 7, 2012 does not count
A game-changer due to the clean, hoppy taste that Victory presents. Different than the usual in your face Victory tastes, but a good different. An organic take on an IPA. GREAT.

hopscotch (10142) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 3, 2012
Bottle… Florida Craft Beer and Wing Fest 2012… Pours clear and golden with a small, wispy, white head. Good retention. The aroma offers mild grapefruit and other citrus fruit essences. Light to medium-bodied with a mildly creamy mouthfeel and jovial carbonation. The flavor is mainly well-balanced with grapefruit bitterness backed up by biscuit malt sweetness. Finishes crisp and mildly bitter.

johnluvsbeer (120) - Arizona, USA - MAR 3, 2012
Pours an a nice clear amber color with some off white head and good lacing. The aroma has some great herbal hoppiness with a trace of malt which is very pleasant. This beer tastes very good with balance of herbal hops and slight maltiness. A very drinakble beer.
