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.

12oz bottle. Orange color, great head, lots of lace up the sides of the pint glass. Aroma is very floral hops, perfume-like and reminiscent of the floral/perfume aspect I get from Sierra Nevada amped up to 10. Flavor is more of the same. Overall a solid pale ale but it is also sort of one-dimensional and becomes overwhelming. Serving type: bottle 01-06-2013 17:15:42

Draft at beggar's banquet. Smells citrusy with a bit of BO. Tart tang with a very grassy and hay finish.

Draft at beggars banquet. Mediocre aroma and not a great finish. Don’t feel the need to try it again.

Had it as part of a sampler pack, and although it was the worst of the 4 beers its still a 4/5 for me, gonna be looking for more Victory beers in the future. It’s like a restrained version of an IPA, where they stop dumping in hops when you’ve established a nice smooth, tasty beverage.

phaleslu (10652) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Draft at Lavomatic, served in a pint glass. Pours a clear orange-gold with a finger of eggshell white head. Aroma of herbal and floral hops, citrus, pine, and caramel malts. The flavor starts fairly straightforward, with grainy and caramel malts, leafy hops, and mild citrus, but finishes on a long, fresh herbal note that I loved, and that redeemed it from being a forgettable APA. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation. Solid APA.

Aarond (150) - Wilmington, North Carolina, USA - FEB 26, 2013
Bottle. Pours light amber with a thin white head. Good clarity. Aroma is citrus hops, caramel, toffee. Taste is nice and crisp with notes of citrus hops, lemon, pine, and biscuit. Clean finish. Medium light body. Medium carbonation.

Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a slight head. Aroma is mild pine hops. Taste is slightly coppery with pine hops. Creamy-ish finish.

ttoadee (1582) - Austin, Texas, USA - FEB 21, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2015 Light orange pour, thin tight head. Grapefruit in the nose. Lightly bitter on the tongue. Toasted malt plays second fiddle to hop bitterness on the way out.

Another good Victory beer. This isn't one I'd buy on its own though(got it in a sampler). Good and smooth with a hoppy bite, but there's a sourness I don't quite like. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
