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.

Fruit aroma/flavor+long-lasting hoppiness made this the type of beer that has me anxious for it to get warm outside. Another flavor loaded and very approachable beer from Victory has me impressed.

Bottle @ home. Very clear, light orange appearance with a light brown head. Cat piss, floral, a touch piney hoppy aroma. Very toasty pale malty, organic, floral, a bit piney hoppy flavor. The litter box pale ale? Huh?

12 oz. bottle pours a light, very clear orange with a bit of a head. Incredibly earthy nose and flavor. Big malt backbone. Not as hoppy as I expected but still pretty nice.

Bottle. Pours an average cheddar orange with a nose of pine sap, orange peel, and grapefrui. Flavor is pined grapefruit and light orange rind. Tingly and slick on the tongue. Wow! If ever there was an approachable yet assertive APA, this is it. GREAT beer.

Tap flight. Light amber pour with no head in this glass. Lightly carbonated. Aroma of Earthy hops. Flavor tastes like chewing a mouthful of fresh hops with a teaspoon of potting soil! Aromatic, Earthy, and very tasty. Bitter flavors linger in the mouth. Moderate palate. A nice, hoppy, American pale.

great hop aroma full of guava, papaya, and citrus. flavor is light but also lots of tropical fruit ending with soft bitterness. could use more maltyness, but pretty tasty and good hop character.

This is the finest pale ale I’ve ever had. Excellent hop aroma and flavor with citrus and pine. Clean, crisp and very drinkable. Hoppy enough to be an IPA with only a light touch of malt sweetnesss. Excellent. I was a bit surprised by this beer because I’m not a big fan of Hopdevil.

Draft at Dexters. Filtered orange-tan. Thin, steady head. Sessionable, medium bodied, rather straightforward. Clean filtered bod, some orange citrus as a backbone. In line with Prima and HopDevil. Fresh, well done.

12oz bottle, enjoy by 4/29/12. Pours a clear yellow gold with a smallish rocky white head that retains well and laces the glass some.

The aroma is sweet bready malts and piney hops.

The flavor is sweet, slightly vegetal, malts and a little fruit with a good sized resiny grassy hop finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with some prickly carbonation.

Overall, a decent pale ale.

Moderate hop aroma. Clear dark orange color with a medium white head. Sweet beginning with light bitter finish.
