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.

brokensail (16689) - Dublin, California, USA - MAY 4, 2011
A: The pour is amber in color with a couple fingers of white head that leaves some mild lacing on the glass. S: A solid hoppy aroma right away. Juicy citrus with plenty of oranges and tangerines, perhaps some hints of grapefruit, too. A moderate amount of malt in there. Nicely balanced. T: The citrus hop flavors open things up quite pleasantly. Plenty of tangerine and mild grapefruit along with some hints of pine which provide a little bitterness. Balanced with sweetness of bready malts. M: Medium in body with a moderate level of carbonation. O: This is very much along the lines of how I like my pale ales. Nice hoppy character without being overly bitter or malty.

On tap at the Petrol Station. Pours a orange color with a small white head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is a floral hops and weed. Thin mouthfeel with a sweet hop and citrus with a nice resin finish. Easy to drink, really enjoyed this American pale ale from Victory.

Scopey (16227) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2014
Bottle from Bottledog. It pours clear amber with a medium white head. The nose is soft, toasty, brown bread, wood and earth. The taste is smooth, toasty, grain, decent bitterness, light grapefruit peel and pepper with a crisp, dry finish. Light-medium body and fine carbonation. A bit watery if truth be told. Fairly inoffensive.

Pours clear amber with a creamy/bubbly off-white head. Aroma is nicely floral/fruit over mild roast malt. Med body. Flavor is moderately hoppy - fruit and floral over mild roast malt. The finish is definitely on the bitter side. Hop accumulates towards a slight burn. Good stuff.
