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.

I hoppy pale ale for sure. Some dark, earthy flavors. It’s a bit dank. Could stand to be a bit more crisp. Not a pussy beer though. I love Victory for a making a pale with some real flavor.

Bottle @All My Vinyl Tasting, Edinburgh. Pours golden thin-ish white head. Grapefruit nose, some sweet malty hints on the nose as well. Quite bitter straight away (lemon/bitter lemon) a sharp fruity-ness, nice enough just a little thin on the finish.

Alla mi moglie garba da morire, e io gliela compro volentieri perchè penso che il rapporto qualità prezzo è ottimo; bella agrumata e amarognola il giusto.

RollinHard (1024) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - JUN 5, 2011
Pours a deep gold with a moderate white head. Aroma of parsley, pine, light citrus, lightly toasted bread, and some caramel. Flavor of citrus, grass, herbs, toasted bread, and moderate bitterness. Finishes with an earthy bitterness and some lingering grass and citrus hop qualities. Medium to light bodied and quite dry. Decent pale ale.

WabashMan (1023) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - JUL 30, 2011
Pours a medium-dark orange with slightly off white head. Head fades too quickly for top marks, but the color is very nice. Aroma is very nice, with an orangey citrus note from the hops. Flavor is drier than I expected. The citrus aroma of the hops takes a background role in the flavor, giving the hoppiness a more bitter character. Overall, a very nice APA.

aroma is excellent balance of near caramel malts and lightly grassy hops. nice toasty malt character to boot. appearance is well polished deeper gold with active carb and filmy head, no legs. flavor is excellent toast near butterscotch with pleasant vegetative note tangled in. excellent balances abounds with unique character to both sides.

Victory Headwaters Pale Ale is a crystal clear, lightly sparkling golden ale with a dense, bubbly white head that has outstanding retention and lacing. It has a huge, fresh hoppy aroma of pine and flowers. It has a very smooth medium body with a solid, dry finish. It’s a nice, simple, hoppy flavor with perfect bitterness and perfect balance. It tastes slightly dry and piny. This is a supreme example of an American pale ale.

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2012 Hazy Yellow pours from 12oz bottle. Clean, crisp, hoppy, and twinged with citrus. Taste like an IPA to me because of its assertiveness. Excellent.
