3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The Headwaters pours out a clear golden color, with light and fluffy foam on top. Aromas are slightly hoppy, but heavy on the sweet side of things.
Just a touch of hops balance nicely with a substantial amount of malts. The hops are slightly bitter, but more citrus and piney than a sticky/bitter style. The malts are sweet, but not candy/sugary sweet. Very nice balance and a very clean smooth finish.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This one pours a crystal clear light red to deep orange and head is off white and lasting. Nose lend emmense toasty, biscuity, bready and earthy malts. Hop nose is mostly citrus, fruits and light resins. Flavor is some earthy hood then come in with toasted and biscuit malts and finishes out with mixed citrus hops. Medium body and crisp mouthfeel. easy to drink. Earthy hop and malt forefront. Not bad. not life changing.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Medium amber with orange hues and a big puffed up white head. Big pure/zesty aromas of fruity citrus and some floral hops with just a hint of caramel. Flavors big on apricot, with an overall fruit/floral hop zest. Light resin with a bitter finish. A solid pale that is mostly like an ipa but the apricot flavor stands out more so than most of the other flavors of hops.

Draft at Momo’s Tennessee street. Pours a pale clear gold and a sudsy white head. Nose is citrus fruit, pine hops, bready malts and light sweetness. Pine hops on the front end, light malt mid palate and finishing bitter. Clean drinking and crisp pale ale. Not bad.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Fruit aroma/flavor+long-lasting hoppiness made this the type of beer that has me anxious for it to get warm outside. Another flavor loaded and very approachable beer from Victory has me impressed.

Bottle @ home. Very clear, light orange appearance with a light brown head. Cat piss, floral, a touch piney hoppy aroma. Very toasty pale malty, organic, floral, a bit piney hoppy flavor. The litter box pale ale? Huh?

12 oz. bottle pours a light, very clear orange with a bit of a head. Incredibly earthy nose and flavor. Big malt backbone. Not as hoppy as I expected but still pretty nice.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours an average cheddar orange with a nose of pine sap, orange peel, and grapefrui. Flavor is pined grapefruit and light orange rind. Tingly and slick on the tongue. Wow! If ever there was an approachable yet assertive APA, this is it. GREAT beer.
