Beautiful beer poured from a bottle. Nothing special in my view. In the review video (http://www.victorybeer.com/beers/headwaters/& the CEO of Victory notes the citra hop. But, this doesn't taste like citra to me. Earthy taste rather than the provinces citra flavor.

Pros: Nice pleasant hop character, candied citrus and a bit of resinous bite.
Cons: Super basic typical caramel and crystal malt interplay. Carbonation a bit coarse, body a bit thin.

Fruity hop aroma evident immediately from the newly opened bottle. Moderate head with lingering lacing. Crystal clear amber. Nice complex hop aroma from the glass with malty undertones. Body is good for a pale. Mouthful of fruity resinous hops with an adequately malty base. Finishes with a pleasant lingering bitterness. Nicely done.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Decent bubbly head, while the color has a golden yellow color.
Aromas of the fruitiest orange blossom and bright lemon, balanced by biscuits and bready, sweeter malts. The nose anticipates an IPA with a dominant malt base, which will be as important as the hops in the beer.
Begins with bready malts, moderate carbonation and toffeeish hints, which add a subtle sweetness to the beer. Orange and Papaya flavors come up in a gentle, enjoyable way, with just a little bitterness. Sweetness fades on the finish as sticky, bitter resins emerge and linger together with the tropical fruitiness. The palate is light bodied and well balanced between a present maltiness and fruity, mellow hop flavors.
