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.

WVHouseofBeer (1055) - West Virginia, USA - JAN 2, 2013
Pours a dark orange color with a decent sized off-white head that leaves some lacing. Really nice pine and citrus aromas. Flavors are not as strong as the aromas but consist of the same, along with caramel malt. Mouthfeel is a bit light and watery with a bitter finish. Overall a very good APA, but not one of the best.

Perfectly blended with citrus, resin, floral hops, firm classic Victory German malt bill. This is refreshing and drinks like a session IPA without the bitter bite. Recommended.
