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 / recommended by beer guy at Binnys...compared it to Half Acre Daisy Cutter........well, close but no DC.....but pretty good. Nice color...light amber; nose...hoppy....and taste...also hoppy but with a decent malt for balance....not boozy but is only 5% so that makes sense....a good to little better than good APA.....another good beer from Victory

canary dog (748) - Rutland, Vermont, USA - MAR 17, 2012
A really good and refreshing American pale ale. Up front profile is of sharp and fresh hops, perhaps mostly Cascade. The beginning will remind you of a beer that will be either much heavier or sharper, or more alcoholic. But the finish is very smooth and clean, surprisingly so considering the rich complexity up front. And it is only 5.2%, somewhat weak for most IPAs or PAs. A very fine and quaffable session beer.

Fruit aroma/flavor+long-lasting hoppiness made this the type of beer that has me anxious for it to get warm outside. Another flavor loaded and very approachable beer from Victory has me impressed.

elgiacomo (745) - Ringgold/Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia, USA - FEB 22, 2011
12oz bottled Feb 8, 2011. Pours clear amber with a one finger white head that leaves webs of lacing and holds a small cap. Aroma is lemon citrus, some orange and grapefruit, grassy and floral hops, bread & biscuit malt. Good to very good strength. Flavor is lemon, orange, grapefruit hops, some grass, hint of pine, caramel and bready malt, good bitterness for an APA, touch of sweetness in the middle but finishes dry. Mouthfeel is thin to medium bodied, slick, medium carbonation. Crisp, hoppy, refreshing APA. Very nicely done, Victory!

On tap at the Pourhouse in Westmont, NJ. Slightly hazy mid-amber pour and a 2 finger dusky white head. Equal amounts of lemony citrus and biscuity malt in the nose. Same follows through to the flavors with a nice helping of citrus, a little butterscotch, caramel and cereal. Light, refreshing texture and a clean finish.
