Pours bronze with white head, nice bubbles, and great lacing. Aroma of citrus hops and some caramel. Taste is the same with some tropical fruit, grapes, and grapefruit. Well balance and tasty.

Light copper in the glass with a thin white head. Aroma of pine, citrus, and spruce. Decent balance between the malt (with light caramel notes) and hop bitterness.

Was informed about this one by my friend Bill Ellis. Great to see a new beer from Victory that is not > 8% alcohol. This one is extremely floral and fruity with a very crisp and slightly bitter palate. Color is extremely clear and has a unique shade of orange and gold hues. This beer is predominantly hoppy.

12 oz / recommended by beer guy at Binnys...compared it to Half Acre Daisy Cutter........well, close but no DC.....but pretty good. Nice color...light amber; nose...hoppy....and taste...also hoppy but with a decent malt for balance....not boozy but is only 5% so that makes sense....a good to little better than good APA.....another good beer from Victory

UPDATED: APR 11, 2011 Victory’s made a fine entry into the mediocrity-laden style of Pale Ale. Headwaters is one hoppy beast, yet keeps the texture nice and light. Add this feel to such a manageable ABV and Headwaters kinda rules the roost of normal ol’ Pale Ales. Should of known a solid brewery like Victory could make a fine Pale; unfortunately, I’ve been let down by the style many a time before. Even Stone screwed up their Pale Ale. But Headwaters is pretty damn awesome, a lovely small beer.

Pours clear golden with good head from bottle. Aroma is sweet with citrus hops. Taste is smooth with grapefruit . a great pale ale. Like another reviewer commented its like a mini-IPA

Sharp aroma. Floral hops. Crisp golden pour. Citrus hops hit hard on every sip. Great ipa. Identifying with a lot of character

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very organic taste. Fresh, yet subsided by the stuff that makes things organic. It seems this brew was a solid pale ale at first but then went through a clarifying process that dumbed it down some. Its still solid, yet lacks the hop bite and forcefullness that would make it a super pale ale. Bronzed copper in color, a head the digs deep at first and then simmers down to a flat striaght while always there. Organic wheat and soli mix the smell with tangerine and citrus running in the background. Very fresh taste, very likeable brew. A solid, though less than stellar, pale ale. 12oz bottle poured into a Cabin 2011 Pilsner glass.
