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.

Changed (369) - Ithaca, New York, USA - JUL 8, 2012
12 oz bottle from FLBC. Pours like an American pale ale, has enough hops to make it pretty much enjoyable. Went down in about 5 minutes on a 95* day, so I’d say this is sessionable. A Victory indeed.

billk (353) - Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, USA - MAY 2, 2013
Tastes close to New Belgium Ranger IPA. Would qualify as an IPA in a few circles.

pet3rman (345) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 6, 2011
Overall a fantastic Pale Ale. Very floral, citrusy aroma. Nice copper pour with a medium dissipating white head. Taste is pretty good, but doesn’t stand up to the aroma. Average bitterness... Maybe a bit to watery. Good PA to session.
