Headwater Pale Ale (Victory Brewing, Downingtown, PA)

Back lit, the beer is a clear, straw gold with a lingering white head. Biscuity malt with an earthy spice for the nose. A little research pulled up a note from Lew Bryson that it's Citra/Centennial hops as the American hops. Caramel and sweet on the tongue with a slight tang from the hop bite on the back of the tongue. Bitterness from the Citra lingers and builds further into the beer. I like the beer more as I go--better than the initial taste. Named for the local waters that supply the brewery, this is a good strong pale ale that is on par with all of Victory’s offerings.

Serving type: bottle
