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.

12 oz bottle. Pours amber with a long lasting white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of citrusy hops, orange marmalade caramel and biscuit malt. Body is medium and crisp. Citrusy, earthy hops dominate the palate while caramel and biscuit malt and ripe fruit provide support. Finish is long, grapefruity. Delicious brew.

Rated from notes taken 5 Jan 2013 and 6 Aug 2011 -- A very nice Pale Ale, that I would not mind drinking on a regular basis. Enough to make you want to drink it, restrained enough to allow you to drink several.

talon1117 (1152) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 24, 2012
The pour is a clear, orangey-amber color with a moderately full, white, pillowy, frothy head which settled to a very thin froth and leaves tight, lace rings. The nose is toasted grain and caramel, very floral, faint citrus, and slight resins. The flavor is slightly better with more toasted caramel, toasted grains still, slightly resinous, still floral, and some citrus. The palate is lively, light to moderate, and a bit watery. The finish is moderately bitter, resinous, and full of lasting grain notes. Fairly generic APA, drinkable and just enough sweetness to balance to the prominent bitterness.

Boliv (1150) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 5, 2011
Bottle marked "enjoy by 7.8.11." Pours clear bright orange and lively with a medium foamy eggshell head. The aromas are sweet papaya and guava, moco moco (a Bolivian fruit), sugar, and grass. NIce tropical fruity notes here. The flavor is sweet funky malt and fruit, mild bitter grass, and pine; a touch one-dimensional. Very smooth and drinkable. A nice, sessionable beer with great aroma, but whose flavor didnt quite live up. Still, a solid brew. [624]

varanid99 (1147) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 7, 2016
Orange-gold pour with a thin white head. Malty, biscuity, orange and lemon aromas. Taste is light sweetness, herbal and citrusy, light bitterness, fairly light flavours

Juelze (1146) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 21, 2011
Fantastic APA! Pours a clean, orange color with thin white head that fades quickly. Aroma is light citrus, grassy notes, and cereal malts. Taste is floral, honey, citrusy, with light grassiness. This is very fresh hop forward APA that is simply terrific. Finishes clean and provides a full bodied mouthfeel. Definitely a solid offering from Victory.

hrabren (1143) - Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 5, 2015
0.355 bottle at Sir Williams Pub, Ljubljana, Slovenia. Pours deep clear orange with small off white head. Tropical, honey and mint aroma. Drinkable and refreshing, but body to light. Hoppy character not to strong, maybe lack something. Taste is well balanced, light sweetness and some bitterness. Light finish. Good.

taphandle (1135) - Texas, USA - APR 24, 2011
UPDATED: APR 29, 2011 Nice to see Victory trying something without tons of hops. Still good, but a slightly hoppy pale ale.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 7, 2012
Golden-brown/amberish color topped by a thin white head. Aroma of citrusy hops, grapefruit zest and orange peel with a little doughy malt beneath. Crisp earthy bitterness, not much malt presence. Finishes nice and dry. A solid straight forward APA.
