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.

Light amber, average carbonation. Aroma/flavor are full of citrus up front with a light caramel touch. Aftertaste is a light and mild lingering bitterness that is slightly grassy as opposed to citrusy or floral, making it rather pleasant and drinkable as a flavorful session ale.

Bottle shared somewhere in the middle of Florida. Smells really weird - taste is not much better.

(bottle). This a really nice APA. Clear golden-amber with enough carbonation to enhance the palate. The favor is a mild balanced malt with subtle sweetness. Perfect to session or enjoy just one for fun. I really enjoyed this on a hot spring day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle. Pours amber with a long lasting white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of citrusy hops, orange marmalade caramel and biscuit malt. Body is medium and crisp. Citrusy, earthy hops dominate the palate while caramel and biscuit malt and ripe fruit provide support. Finish is long, grapefruity. Delicious brew.

Poured a deep amber. Nose is malty, hint of spice and hops. Solid pale ale smooth hop notes and well balanced with spicy malt. Solid

Pours a semi-clear copper color with a slight head but not much of one leaving a little lacing in the middle of the glass. the scent smells great with its bitter hops and blend of grains and malts. The taste isn’t anything new but it is great. It has just the right volume to it as well as flavors. There’s just enough hops to make the beer great without going too far overboard. Some nice citrus and wheat hints as well. A very well made beer that I definitely suggest trying!

ryecatcher (825) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 16, 2011
A Gorgeous, floral-hopped pale ale. Clean finish, good mouth feel, lots of refreshing citrus and (dare I say) geranium on the palate. A top quality ale (and easily my favorite) from the solid brewery that is Victory. Akin to similar hopped brews such as Daisy Cutter and Gumball Head.

hfmejias (818) - Dover, Delaware, USA - JAN 15, 2013
Bottle poured an nice cloudy light brown with yellow hues, light white head that dissipated quickly, aroma is kind of herbal/woody and taste is hoppy but not overwhelming. Another nice offering from Victory.

16 oz pour from the brick store. Light head, with a amber color. Aromas of hops and citrus. Very well balanced, absolutely a great session beer
