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.

So good and refreshing. Pour is like a blood orange with a foamy white head. Smell of fruity hops and pine. Taste is awesome with grapefruit and pineapple notes with fresh pine and small bitterness. Mouth feel is about perfect. Good stuff.

JediMindTricks (446) - Remington, Virginia, USA - MAY 8, 2011
This was a very crisp pale ale and i say that in a very good way. The pour was beautiful with a very nice head and hoppy aroma. The taste was smooth and the water was really the star.

Garbageman (443) - Lexington, South Carolina, USA - JUN 28, 2013
From tap. Pours a amber/ orange color with a haze. Small head. Aroma was musty with a hint of spice and orange. Taste follows and is mild in the palate and finishes clean.

From the tap came a pale yellow brew with a white head. Aromas of malt and honey. Flavors of malt, honey, and butter. Medium bodied.

Pretty impressive APA from Victory. Had on tap at Local Option in Chicago. Very floral aroma, with some citrus to pack in the extra punch. Resin, grass, and spritzy carbonation send this one home.

thicksuds (417) - Massachusetts, USA - AUG 4, 2012
Crisp, clean, and pure, seriously, one of the purest tasting beers I have had, with the signature Victory hop flavor they have. Very nice, excellent PA, great summer brew.

Hoppypocket (408) - Trois-rivieres, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 29, 2013
Pour is golden/copper with white head and little lacing. Aroma of grassy hops, very light citrus and light malts. Taste is grassy and earthy hops, light malts, a bit fruity, dry finish. Low body and medium carb. Honest pale ale.
