3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Was informed about this one by my friend Bill Ellis. Great to see a new beer from Victory that is not > 8% alcohol. This one is extremely floral and fruity with a very crisp and slightly bitter palate. Color is extremely clear and has a unique shade of orange and gold hues. This beer is predominantly hoppy.

On tap at Proof, advertised as Victory 15th anniversary, pour pale later, a little tan lacing, weak hoppiness, very dry, grassy, a bit gritty, not great, but spectacular for an anniversary. Boring.

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.

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!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at the victory hall in philadelphia. Clear copper. Muted aroma of citrus, orange, spicy hops. Zesty, coriander, piney, grassy. Spicy to the point of being a saison. Mildly bitter aftertaste, mostly the zesty spice lingers. strange enough that I’m not even sure I got the right beer. The spiciness is overpowering the more I have. Quite off putting, almost feels like a mistake.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Not sure of the age. Poured clear golden brown with small head that faded. Light aroma and flavour. Kind of watery but still really good. I’m really glad I tried this and I recommend a taste.
