Headwaters Pale Ale
12 oz brown bottle
Served in a 20 oz tulip glass

Pours a light tea color, with a light orange tint on the bottom of the glass.

Minimal head on top.

Huge floral & hoppy nose goodness.

A syrupy sweet caramel malt back with a resiny hop punch. The hops are fresh, almost "wet" if that makes sense. A wonderful brassy and bright hop profile with flavors freshly sliced orange, tangerine, lemon, lime, etc.

A nice beer that becomes more enjoyable with every sip.
