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. Well 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, weve had a fair amount of latitude in paying homage to water in our beer. So, weve 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.

Lemke10 (977) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Pours a semi-clear copper color with a slight head but not much of one leaving a little lacing in the middle of the glass. the scent smells great with its bitter hops and blend of grains and malts. The taste isnt anything new but it is great. It has just the right volume to it as well as flavors. Theres just enough hops to make the beer great without going too far overboard. Some nice citrus and wheat hints as well. A very well made beer that I definitely suggest trying!

Bulk_Carrier (4749) - Essex Junction, Vermont, USA - JAN 24, 2013
It pours a clear golden amber and leaves the same color body. A one centimeter white head forms and lasts for a half a minute. Some spider web lacing is left around the sides of the pint glass. The smell has the hops up front, spicy hops that is with a bit citrus in the background. The taste has the spicy hops up front leaving a strong bitterness through the taste. The palate is light with nothing harsh on the tongue and a dry finish. Overall, this is a very drinkable beer that I would have again.

Aroma: A huge amount of cirtus hop aroma with lots of complex fruitiness. Orange, grapefruit, lemon. The malt comes though just a little bit in the aroma. Appearance. Beautiful golden orange color, thick rocky head which lingers nicely. Flavor: Some caramel, but really this beer is about the hops. A very much easy drinking heavy hopped pale ale. The hop flavor in this beer is out of this world, they probably throw a huge amount in late in the process to get such a wonderful flavor out of it. Palate: Medium body, no off flavors, perfect amount of carbonation. Lower bitterness. Overall: If you love hops, but dont love IPAs and the bitterness, this beer is worth a try. The late hopping they do gives it a huge hop flavor with less bitterness and allows you to get a lot of the malt out of it. Overall I think this the perfect american pale ale session beer if you are a hop head.

Sierra Nevada called: they want their recipe back. Nearly identical in all aspects, from the color to the head, to the mouthfeel. Maybe a touch more intriguing with its hops.

Bottle poured an nice cloudy light brown with yellow hues, light white head that dissipated quickly, aroma is kind of herbal/woody and taste is hoppy but not overwhelming. Another nice offering from Victory.
