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 (891) - 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.

Hawksfan17 (890) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAR 20, 2011
Pours a hazy amber orange with a white head. Smells of flowers and fresh hops. Flavor is much the same with a nice bitter roll on the palate going down with a dry finish.

Dacrza (863) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - AUG 6, 2015
DATE TASTED: August 6, 2015 ... GLASSWARE: Brew at the Zoo pint... OCCASION: watching the Fox faux Republican debate with a giddy anticipation... APPEARANCE: clear, light amber body; bubble sparsely populate the glass; fluffy, white head leaves intricate coral lacing that is attractive ... AROMA: the given citric appropriateness of a pale ale--lemon grass, grapefruit, and soft floral hints--an overall soft suggestion... PALATE: strong carbonation livens the mouth, with a medium-bodied, reasonable finish--easy drinking and sessionable... TASTE: a sessionable, apologetic pale ale, one that does not distinguish itself in profile--no outstanding or detrimental characteristics...light bitterness with a maltiness that balances this beer nicely... OVERALL: after reading the label, I got the sense that this beer would be an ale far short of Hop Devil or Dirt Wolf...instead, it is more of an about-face or 180, softening the genre and rounding its edges... agreeable but not distinguishable...the citrus is light, there is no resin, and enough malt holds the beer in place...a lesser, yet still worthwhile beer in a Victory sampler...

Light orange color with small white head and minimal lacing. Aroma and flavor are all malt, amber, light caramels, with grapefruity hops. Okay overall

ExpendableHero (854) - Florida, USA - MAR 28, 2011
This was solid. Copper colored beer with a frothy, off-white head. Aromas of grapefruit, pine, and floral hops. Tastes of freshly cut grass, pine/spruce, and HUGE grapefruit notes. The finish is quite refreshing, and extremely fruity. Bitter hops are nicely balanced with the grapefruit. Easy drinking.

Light copper in the glass with a thin white head. Aroma of pine, citrus, and spruce. Decent balance between the malt (with light caramel notes) and hop bitterness.
