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.

Jado (630) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - NOV 5, 2014
From 355 ml bottle. Pours a clear orange amber with a thin but lasting white head. Aromas of orange peel, cut grass, caramel and peaches. Taste is restrained sweet fruit at first before a firmer citrus zest and pine bitterness washes through. Quite a lingering finish with a bitter but fruity aftertaste. Nicely done.

oobawa (626) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 21, 2011
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.

ARMed (622) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 13, 2011
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!

mikesaum (618) - Newark, Ohio, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Pours a darker gold with a short lived eggshell head that leaves some lace. Aroma is a mix of citrus and herbal hops with some caramel malt undertones. Taste has good bitter herbal hop punch with a bit of minty/pine linger. Not too bad.

Stldsf1 (616) - Florida, USA - JUL 11, 2012
Sharp aroma. Floral hops. Crisp golden pour. Citrus hops hit hard on every sip. Great ipa. Identifying with a lot of character ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
