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.

12 oz bottle. Pours a golden copper color with a white head and a little lacing. Aroma is hoppy, citrus, grapefruit. Medium body on the palate with average carbonation. Flavor is sweet, a nice balance of malt and citurs hops. Maybe a litte summit hops. A nice light bitter finish.

This belongs in a good group of Pale Ales. Victory has made a solid beer here. Copper pour with an average white head. Balanced grassy hops combined with caramel malts. Simple, but well executed.

patrickfannon (1242) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 13, 2011
Bottle. 12 oz. Pours a light, clear tan with a rich, frothy white head. Decent amount of lacing throughout the session. Aroma of fresh hops, grapefruit, soft, earthy notes, wet grass, and slight hints of tangerine. Very hoppy and agressive at first, but the middle is dominated by a juicy citrus and sweet maltiness that fades as the beer washes back and finishes with a dry, bitter hoppy bit. Superbly drinkable, with a robust, yet crisp and well-rounded mouthfeel. Excellent session ale, and one of the best American pales I’ve ever had.

radio_nowhere (1233) - Maryland, USA - OCT 27, 2013
Bottle into pint glass, typical clear amberish golden color with white head. Aroma of piney/citrus hops and caramel-leaning malt sweetness. Taste adds almost herbal note to the nice balance of caramel malt and hop bitterness. Light body, moderate carbonation, crisp, dry with lingering bitter finish. Good above average APA.

beerfest5 (1206) - Cloneen, IRELAND - JUN 26, 2011
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.

Maris (1204) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - MAR 25, 2015
From a 355ml bottle on 26/3/2015. Pours a clear golden with a smallish head. Has a pleasant light fruity aroma with some honey in the mix. In the mouth, there’s some sweet biscuity malt and citrus fruit (sweet orange, tart/sour lemon) but it’s the big, dry, piney, herbal bitterness that defines this. Hop wise, this is very much in IPA territory. Medium bodied with average carbonation. This is a cracking, very flavoursome hop forward APA.

nealblind (1199) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - JUL 2, 2013
Orange clear pour slight white head. Aroma of tangerine citrus piney hops. Tastes mostly of fresh green hops with a significant wheaty malty background with moderate hop bitterness. Buttery mouthfeel.
