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.

Saeglopur (1929) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - SEP 23, 2014
Bottle from Bierkompass.de. Amber, clear body, with a medum, creamy, slightly yellow head. Aroma of flowers, citrus, tangerine, some ropical fruits, grass, herbs, some candy. Taste with about the same aromas. Mouthfeel is light, slick, with a moderate carbonation and it finishes medium bitter, slightly dry, with lemon zest, grass, slight pine and some sweet malts. Nice one. A lighter version of their HopDevil, also with lots of grassy notes. Refreshing and easy to drink, but overall nothing special.

pinkzambia (1928) - 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.

Pours a dark golden with a white head. Aroma is lots of citrusy hops. Flavor is nicely bitter, fruity, resiny hops, sweet malt toward the dry finish.

zgaier (1925) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - APR 6, 2012
Pours amber-orange with a white head and aroma of hops and pine. Taste is subtle, of hops, pine, citrus, and floral notes with a dry, bitter finish. Very drinkable, lighter brew, not bad.

Foxbush (1922) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 12, 2011
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.

Bottle from a mix pack. Poured into the free Victory pint glass that came with it. A light golden brew, slightly hazy. Light head that fades to a thick lace. Bready-citrus aromas and flavor. Body on the lighter side but finish is typically sticky like most Pale Ales.

andyhwcinc (1871) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 5, 2012
Purchased at Binnys in Chicago, IL, enjoyed after a long work week. Appearance is a pretty clear amber with a rich frothy white head that laces to the glass. Aroma is very rich in hops with lemon notes, a bit of grapefruit as well, also beady malt. Taste is pretty hoppy for a pale ale with a really nice bitter finish that also goes down pretty smooth. Pretty tasty stuff, Im using the word pretty a lot in this review. Its pretty good!

DocJitsu (1869) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - APR 9, 2014
Pours a clear, classic golden color with a one-finger, creamy, antique white head. The head dissipates too quickly, or I wouldve scored its appearance a 4. A well, balanced malt/floral hop bouquet is noted. A relatively rich mouthfeel yields to some mild astringency late. Theres something peculiar lying a the flavors foundation that disrupts the malt and hop characters. Almost like petroleum jelly. Nearly flavorless, yet has a distinctive flavor. Its not off putting. Just disrupts what would otherwise be the natural flavors of the ale. It takes on the hop character and bitterness of a session IPA, but with a smidgeon better malt backbone.
