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.

Bricks (1150) - Delaware, USA - FEB 7, 2014
Light orange with straw color. Outstanding aroma, hoppy floral essence. Beer is somewhat dry, somewhat bitter. Medium-strong hop on the flavor. Not bad.

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.

frylock (1144) - 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.

3.4
Hangover (1142) - oxford, Georgia, USA - APR 29, 2011
Copper pour with a thin white head. Aoma is malty with a bit of citrusy hops. Medium bodied, medium carbonation. This one is primarly malty with a bready/grainy flavor with the hops with a subtle citrus hop flavor. Slightly bitter finish but short. Clean, crisp flavor and finish but nothing here is blowing my mind.

UPDATED: APR 29, 2011 Nice to see Victory trying something without tons of hops. Still good, but a slightly hoppy pale ale.

bkurtz (1134) - LITHUANIA - OCT 11, 2012
Poured a clear, golden amber. Grass and bread aroma. Taste has a nice bitter bite with spice. Great balance and a tasty brew, one of my favorite American Pale Ale.

tfontana (1129) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 15, 2015
Bottle in pint glass from Downtown Discount Beverage. Aroma is strong bready malt with floral, herbal, musky-resinous hops. Appearance is clear gold with orange tinge, nice sparkle with virtually no head and mild lacing. Taste is nice mix of bitter and sweet, slightly citrusy, metallic, with corn chip finish which is long. Palate is light bodied with thin texture and slightly overcarbonated. Overall, a lot of positives here and very enjoyable to drink.

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2012 Hazy Yellow pours from 12oz bottle. Clean, crisp, hoppy, and twinged with citrus. Taste like an IPA to me because of its assertiveness. Excellent.

3.5
Sammer (1119) - Plano, Texas, USA - MAR 21, 2011
Golden orange pour from bottle. Aroma is hops and some skunk. Taste is bitter, with hints of malt and pine. Very solid APA.
