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.

Nice and hoppy but not overwhelming. Citrus and floral notes. Very drinkable, really enjoyed this one.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a dark honey. Pillowy white head. Fresh grapefruit aroma. Small lacing. Classic PA bitterness with a crisp dry finish. Bitter dry mouthfeel. I’m more of an IPA fan then the PA however this one is very well done and tastes very fresh even though the bottle was not new.

3.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light orange with straw color. Outstanding aroma, hoppy floral essence. Beer is somewhat dry, somewhat bitter. Medium-strong hop on the flavor. Not bad.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

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

This beer must receive the maximum score for aroma. It has an excellent hoppy aroma with a spearmint finish. The color is a clear copper color with a great bubbly pillowy creamy head. the flavor is hoppy and minty fresh. Overall, one of my favorites from VIctory!

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle Poured into glass. Deep golden Amber pour with a thin off white head. Aroma is grassy, earthy, wheat, some sweetness. Taste is savory with bitter hops, a little rubber band, wheaty body. High carbonation with an earthy finish/slight aftertaste.
