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.

hivemind (840) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 5, 2012
12oz bottle in Delaware by myself. Pours dark golden with a great big white head and plenty of bubbles. Almost the color of dehydrated piss. Aroma is fresh, woody hops and a touch of citrus. Palate is filled with pine hop and there is a touch of apricot. Almost perfect bitterness. Really fresh. Delicious pale ale.

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

J_man (834) - Tustin, California, USA - AUG 24, 2011
Strong juicy piney, grassy hop aroma rising off a light golden/tan body with a medium white head. I would expect a huge hop flavor from the aroma, but it’s not as strong as it smells. Still plenty of dry, piney hops with a little skunkiness (in the good way) that are really well balanced by the lightly sweet, bready/grainy malt flavor. A light initial creaminess is flattened and dried out by a nice bitter finish. Very enjoyable and drinkable pale.

Acetobacter (816) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 15, 2011
Enjoyed on tap in a shaker glass. The beer pours a burnished copper color, with a low white head. The aroma shows fairly aggressive notes of west coast hops, with the piney, resiny notes of Simcoe seemingly predominating, along with lesser notes of citrus. Underlying malt aromas are evident in the background. The palate is nicely bitter up front, again showing a pleasant resin character that is unfortunately absent from so many examples of the style. Malt moves to the fore in the mid-palate, showing a nice toasted note, and a noticeable, if subtle, toffee note. The finish is clean and nicely hoppy; balancing the beer in a manner that allows it to be drinkable in quantity. Overall, a beautfully styled APA. Very enjoyable.

Shared bottle at Cardinal, Stavanger. Pours deep golden, clear, little head. Aroma of bread. Some sweetness, but well hidden by a bitter, long lasting aftertaste.
