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.

Maris (1481) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - MAR 25, 2015
From a 355ml bottle on 26/3/2015. Pours a clear golden with a smallish head. Has a pleasant light fruity aroma with some honey in the mix. In the mouth, theres some sweet biscuity malt and citrus fruit (sweet orange, tart/sour lemon) but its the big, dry, piney, herbal bitterness that defines this. Hop wise, this is very much in IPA territory. Medium bodied with average carbonation. This is a cracking, very flavoursome hop forward APA.

jmikolich (1477) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - FEB 20, 2012
on tap at buckeye beer engine 19Feb2012, nose is mostly hoppy and the color of the beer makes me think there is more malt here, and tasting reveals exactly that, in true victory form they balance the hoppy nose out nicely with some malt back.. this would do nicely on a brisk spring day.

bubblehouse (1475) - louisville, Kentucky, USA - APR 4, 2015
A good pale ale. Little light on the aroma. Good hoppy flavor. I like victory quite a bit.

Onslow (1473) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - AUG 17, 2011
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Copper-gold brew with two fingers of head. Nice hoppy aroma. Taste is crisp and clean - relatively light malts at the start quickly giving way to complex hops. Finish is clean and bitter with a short lingering afertaste. Hops on par or better than many IPAs, but definately a Pale Ale in style - light, crisp, refreshing, complex, great character. A worl class pale ale.

radio_nowhere (1472) - Maryland, USA - OCT 27, 2013
Bottle into pint glass, typical clear amberish golden color with white head. Aroma of piney/citrus hops and caramel-leaning malt sweetness. Taste adds almost herbal note to the nice balance of caramel malt and hop bitterness. Light body, moderate carbonation, crisp, dry with lingering bitter finish. Good above average APA.

tandembrauer (1445) - Stavanger, NORWAY - FEB 9, 2015
Shared bottle at Cardinal, Stavanger. Pours deep golden, clear, little head. Aroma of bread. Some sweetness, but well hidden by a bitter, long lasting aftertaste.

scarletfire65 (1443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 12, 2011
Aroma is grainy, with some light citrus hops. Flavor is very simple, some sweet malt and finishes with piney hop bitterness. Overall it is watery and light bodied, also light on flavor. Simple and easy drinking, but boring.

ryanscourt (1436) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Solid pale ale, fluffy white head, pine hops with some citrus. A liitle bit of dirty socks in the aroma. Aftertaste is pretty short but overall a lot of nice flavors. However by the end just wasnt too excited to keep drinking.

DroolYeast (1436) - Aalborg, DENMARK - MAY 7, 2014
Bottle @ BrewDog Manchester. Aroma of basement, vegs, and some hops. Clear light brown with small head which quickly disappears into virtually none. Moderate dry bitterness. Some caramel sweetness. Finish is dry. Texture is watery. Carbonation is average.

ttoadee (1434) - Austin, Texas, USA - FEB 21, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2015 Light orange pour, thin tight head. Grapefruit in the nose. Lightly bitter on the tongue. Toasted malt plays second fiddle to hop bitterness on the way out.
