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. Well 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, weve had a fair amount of latitude in paying homage to water in our beer. So, weve 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.

UPDATED: OCT 9, 2011 [3680-20110416] 12floz bottle. Sweaty spruce evergreen hops aroma has a hint of toasted flower petals. Clear, orange body with a quick foamy off-white head. Oily spruce resin hops flavour has a lingering tree needle-like tea aftertaste. Medium body is just a little bitter. Lovely balance but has some strange burnt vegetable oil characteristics. (7/3/8/4/15) 3.7-

Excellent pale ale. Knock the edge off the hop devil and you have this one. Great color and flavor, grape fruity hop, a little citrusy and floral, but not to the point where it gets annoying, good session beer.

HopBackDoc (474) - Hatboro, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 26, 2011
Pours a deep golden color with foamy white head. Aroma of grassy hops. Flavor was deep and balanced with sweet malts and earthy, citrus hops. Very well done pale ale, refreshing and easy drinking.

Pours a dark golden with a white head. Aroma is lots of citrusy hops. Flavor is nicely bitter, fruity, resiny hops, sweet malt toward the dry finish.

troyc (2870) - Illinois, USA - JUN 22, 2011
[Bottle] Pours a deep golden hue with a lot of soapy white foam on top. Aroma of bread, mild herbal notes and crisp citrus hops. The taste is hop forward, with a surprising amount of resin and herbal notes. More subtle light fruit and biscuit flavors comes out as the beer warms. Nicely balanced and very sessionable. I could drink a few of these.

UPDATED: MAY 28, 2013 [firkin] Pleasant, smooth. Could have used just a tad more carbonation from the gravity pour, would like to try it in bottle or draft. A somewhat less aggressive APA hopwise, a nice change from some of the APA/IPA blurring that goes on. Nice looking in the glass, very quaffable. [update 5/28/13] I like the flavor of this beer and I really should try it with normal carbonation. But this time around it was on the hand pump and I just thought it didnt stand up. Too thin, downing the palate...

madvike (3134) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 18, 2011
Bottle - Pours golden amber with a thick bubbly white head. Smells pretty earthy, with big yeasty malt and some juicy citrsy and herbal hops. Taste is pretty smooth and balanced, with subdued grassy/herbal bitterness, a decent light bread malt backbone, and a subtle yeastiness. A little watery, but a fine session beer. As always with Victory, feels quality and well put-together.

drewbeerme (3915) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 16, 2011
Bottle. Pours clear deep golden with auburn highlights and a white head. Nose has a nice red and juicy fruit aroma with pine and melon notes. Flavors have sturdy hop bitterness, resiny, piney, with sweeter red fruits, while a touch of crystal malt finishes. Its that finish that a bit annoying and unnecessary. Full mouth feel. A well done apa that id rarely turn down.
