Amazing! Chose this one because my next homebrew is a pale ale, and I couldn't have made a better choice. The aroma is a little misleading- you think it's going to have a very bitter taste, but it has a great balance.

UPDATED: SEP 9, 2014 Pungent, I think is the word. So different that initially unsure of how I felt, but now I can’t get enough of the fantastic taste. Tremendous aroma, super-crisp, pale & uncomplicated with a very unusual hops flavor. The right amount of alcohol., reasonably priced at $32 a case, an all- around perfect beer. b000111 (10) - - JAN 22, 2013
Aroma: A huge amount of cirtus hop aroma with lots of complex fruitiness. Orange, grapefruit, lemon. The malt comes though just a little bit in the aroma. Appearance. Beautiful golden orange color, thick rocky head which lingers nicely. Flavor: Some caramel, but really this beer is about the hops. A very much easy drinking heavy hopped pale ale. The hop flavor in this beer is out of this world, they probably throw a huge amount in late in the process to get such a wonderful flavor out of it. Palate: Medium body, no off flavors, perfect amount of carbonation. Lower bitterness. Overall: If you love hops, but don’t love IPAs and the bitterness, this beer is worth a try. The late hopping they do gives it a huge hop flavor with less bitterness and allows you to get a lot of the malt out of it. Overall I think this the perfect american pale ale session beer if you are a hop head. Bluesberto (5) - USA - JAN 26, 2012 does not count
Great session beer, amazing aroma obviously dry hopped. Great mouthfeel and pleasing lingering aftertaste. yesyouam (1016) - Fairport, New York, USA - MAR 20, 2011
Victory Headwaters Pale Ale is a crystal clear, lightly sparkling golden ale with a dense, bubbly white head that has outstanding retention and lacing. It has a huge, fresh hoppy aroma of pine and flowers. It has a very smooth medium body with a solid, dry finish. It’s a nice, simple, hoppy flavor with perfect bitterness and perfect balance. It tastes slightly dry and piny. This is a supreme example of an American pale ale.

Light,clear orange, with a nice half-inch of fluffy white head.Lacing is rather minimal.
Sweet citrus,floral hops, combined with nice sweet malt backbone. Wow,very inviting. I love this very pleasant aroma,nice citrusy hops are there right in your nose,with the steady level of malt sweetness. Yes.
Upon sip,what I experience in the nose is pleasantly repeated on the tongue. Good bitter citrus hops,yet very restrained, which is appropriate for a pale ale. Sweet caramel malts. Good medium body,with average carbonation,not too much,just the right amount of it.
Yet another winner from Victory,they never cease to amaze me, and always fail to dissapoint me. dwyerpg (6282) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - SEP 14, 2014
Outstanding. This APA can seriously substitute as an alternative when I want something a little bit different but equally awesome to the Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. Plenty of hops, especially on the very dry finish. Very pleased. Gachupines (1252) - USA - APR 7, 2011
Golden appearance with a thin white head. Aroma is mostly hops, very piney. Flavor is strong piney hops with a very clean finish. Slight malt sweetness on the tongue, but overall just a very strong pale ale. One of the better examples that I’ve found recently. rohash (47) - New York, USA - JAN 16, 2012
This is the finest pale ale I’ve ever had. Excellent hop aroma and flavor with citrus and pine. Clean, crisp and very drinkable. Hoppy enough to be an IPA with only a light touch of malt sweetnesss. Excellent. I was a bit surprised by this beer because I’m not a big fan of Hopdevil. RyanK (275) - Rhode Island, USA - MAR 23, 2012
Pours a murky amber with a white foamy head that is slow to dissipate. Smells strongly of cascade hops (grassy) as well as orange and biscuit. Until reading reviews of this I didn’t notice the taste of orange but pouring this in a glass I get more of that and the biscuit taste for the malt. Usually I drink this from the bottle and notice how its probably one of the most hoppy pale ales out their. Gives it more character than other Pale ales and makes an interesting and easily drinkable brew. Delicious
