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. Well 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, weve had a fair amount of latitude in paying homage to water in our beer. So, weve 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.

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.

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.

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.

Malaclemys (421) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - FEB 28, 2014
Bottle, aroma is citrus, resin, nut, and a bit of grain. Taste is citrus, resin, slight but and malt. Nice dry bitter finish. A quite hoppy pale but very good.

Pours a clear copper body with a thin white head. Floral, fruity hops with a mild bitterness and some caramel to balance.

rollinsr (411) - Atlanta, GEORGIA - MAR 9, 2011
Very light in color, alcohol, and aroma. Slight citrusy characters similar to the Hop Wallop. Nice bitter grapefruit flavor that is very very crisp. As soon the bitter flavor hits the tongue it virtually disappears. Very nice drinkable beer.

This is a groovy pale ale. Im not a huge IPA nerd myself, so I generally tend to gravitate towards the pale ales and appreciate their mellow bitterness and great aromatics more than harshly hopped IPA. Its got a great clear, light-amber body with two fingers of marshmallow-white head. Good retention and a spotty lace. Smells like floral, citrussy, piney hops on top of dry biscuity malt. Straightforward and damn good. Hop flavor hits up front, but quickly give way to bready malt and a bit of implied grapefruit from the olfactory. Clean, bitter finish. Impressive malt presence without becoming sweet and juicy or losing the bitter dryness. Full and prickly carbonation feels just right for this refresher.

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.

Nice easy drinking but hoppy beer. Pours a pale yellow with a slight orange tint and thin White carbonated head. Good retention. Hoppy aroma with notes of grapefruit. Moderately sweet/malt flavor with earthy, herbal hops. Balanced. Almost an IPA. Not bad.
