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.

Draft. Rich O's. Orange, thin wispy white head. Grassy, resinous, like fresh cascade or centennial, toasty malt aroma. Dry, bitter, some citrus.

shonobiwan (219) - Sound Beach, New York, USA - MAR 16, 2012
Long Island, NY - 12 oz bottle poured a wonderful slightly hazy golden color with moderate head an very nice lacing. Aroma was of pine, slight citrus and hops. As a witbier lover I have slowly been easing myself into hoppier brews. Victory is usually solid and so was this brew. By FAR the best pale ale I've ever had. Taste was completely balanced with hops and malt and a slight tang. Yes, I want more! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hotstuff (5158) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAR 15, 2012
Bottle purchased at Siciliano’s in Grand Rapids, MI. Pours a medium sized white head that mostly diminished, hazy body, fair amount of lacing, fizzy, fast-rising carbonation, and a golden hue. The aroma is malty, hint of caramel, pine, earthy and grapefruit hops. The flavor is mildly bitter, malty, pine and earthy. The mouthfeel is lightly tingly and this is a medium bodied APA. Overall, this beer is very quaffable, worthy of a try, and not overly hoppy tasting.

Hudspart (538) - Byron Center, Michigan, USA - MAR 10, 2012
Bottle: Pours amber with no head. Sweet hoppy aroma. A little bitter hoppy flavor. Very good.

3.2
Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAR 10, 2012
This pours a clear golden body, lively carbonated, with a modest white head. The nose is quite hoppy with scents of pine, grapefruit, and zest... with a dash of butterscotch, sadly. That fades in the flavor, leaving a light grainy malt with citrusy hops and a satisfying level of bitterness. Not bad.

3.6
Savvy1982 (1706) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 10, 2012
Draft at The Happy Gnome. Pours clear honey-gold, thin white head, great lacing. Nose is tea-like, perfumed hops, very sweet malt, grass, earth. Flavours of mandarin and navel oranges; very mellow, grassy and sweet. Like a glass of melonade; a bit of spice to off-set the melon-rush. A really tasty little brew.

3.3
Ratman197 (14842) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - MAR 7, 2012
Bottle poured a clear golden amber with a lingering ring of ivory foam. Aromas of biscuit, earthiness, cat piss and light pine. Palate was light to medium bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of biscuit, earthiness, pine and a hint of grapefruit with a crisp dry moderatly bitter lingering earthy finish.

hesscabob (9) - - MAR 7, 2012 does not count
A game-changer due to the clean, hoppy taste that Victory presents. Different than the usual in your face Victory tastes, but a good different. An organic take on an IPA. GREAT.
