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.

hopscotch (11182) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 3, 2012
Bottle… Florida Craft Beer and Wing Fest 2012… Pours clear and golden with a small, wispy, white head. Good retention. The aroma offers mild grapefruit and other citrus fruit essences. Light to medium-bodied with a mildly creamy mouthfeel and jovial carbonation. The flavor is mainly well-balanced with grapefruit bitterness backed up by biscuit malt sweetness. Finishes crisp and mildly bitter.

DocLock (10970) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 22, 2011
12 oz. bottle from Capone’s. Pours dark straw with 3-finger white head. Nose is pale malt, spicy yeasty notes, and funky resiny hops. Tastes hoppy, resiny, with an overabundance of IBUs relative to the malt. Like a souped up Hop Devil with less malt and more hops. Stays resiny throughout.
