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.

holdenn (2127) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 2, 2012
12oz bottle. Kinda grassy aroma some older hops and malt. Golden color with a thin white head. Grassy piney flavors that are a bit cloying against the pale malts. Bitter cloying finish. ok

Bottle poured a dark golden color with a thin off white head. Aroma has some citrus, pale malts, and resins. Mouth feel is light and the carbonation strong. Flavor has light bittetness, citrus rind, a fair bit of malt for a pale, and a lingering finish.

UPDATED: JUN 14, 2011 This was purchased to taste from The Caboose in Ashland. Victory is an excelllent brewery. The ale poured a clear golden to light amber color with a some orange. No lacing while head that dissapated. The bitter flavors are balanced with some a flinty or piny taste. The hops could be greener than I am used to. Not a difficult APA to drink but unusual. Smooth finish with some bitterness remaining. My second was purchased at Total Wine and More in June. An overall good APA for anytime.

ContemplateBeer (2097) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Aroma: Pungent grassy nose with some underlying citrus character, malts tend toward semi-sweet cereal, something here almost reminds me of cheesecloth. Appearance: Pale copper, clear pour with a foamy white head that settles into a patchy, bubbly skin. Flavor: Malts come out a bit more than expected, more orange citrus than grass, though the grass still persists in the background. A bit more bitter and a touch lemony toward the finish. Palate: Light-medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: A well made pale ale, though not my favorite from their lineup.

Vestergaard (2091) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2015
Tap at Fermentoren Aarhus. Pours a clear amber with a medium sized, white, long lasting head. Aroma is not very intense. Bitter, grassy, piney hops, sweeter pale malts and some citrus. Taste is pretty bitter up front, very nice pine, slight malty sweetness, but just a plain, crisp pale ale. Medium carbonation, smooth but crisp body.

Stew41 (2081) - Phuket, THAILAND - APR 6, 2016
Very good punch for a 5% PA. Hops are sharp and clean, think bitter cut grass, and good buzzy length. Lots of presence.

3.5
sm89walt (2080) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 19, 2016
330ml bottle from Beer Cartel, Sydney. A clear copper-amber with a fading off-white, one-finger head. Malty sweet aromas of caramel combine with tea notes and a core of zesty citrus, orange and tropical hops. Medium bodied with a gently sparkling texture. Finishes drop and mostly hoppy - marmalade and lemon pith - but with a sweeter-edged pale malt quality to balance.

2.6
XmnwildX12 (2079) - Farmington, Minnesota, USA - MAR 20, 2011
The scent is horrible as well as the after taste, not much else to say. THe first victory beer I didn’t like.

3.8
pinkzambia (2073) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 18, 2011
Bottle: Clear gold cider look with a small fuzzy white ring head. Wonderful aromas of apricot, grapefruit and toastiness. Great hoppy flavor for a pale ale. Crisp and dry in the finish.
