A: Poured from the growler into a Duvel tulip glass. Clear honey-golden with a nice 1-finger foamy white head. Leaves a little lace.

S: Tropical fruits and citrus over honey-based malt.

T: Caramel malt and tropical fruit. Finishes with lemony dry citrus.

M: Medium in heft with a good creamy feel.

O: A good, but not great, DIPA.

Delicious new offering from Victory.

The body is a surprising golden hue, with just a touch of haziness to it. Decent lacing is left behind by a fluffy white head.

The smell is restrained, not quite jumping out from the glass, but nice. Slight sweetness of malt underscores pine and a touch of grapefruit citrus.

The taste is nicely balanced between sweet malt and mildly assertive hop bitterness. My guess is wheat, and this is reflected in a rather full mouthfeel for the style. Alcohol is well hidden, and the hops come across as piney and citrusy with a rounder tropical, fruity finish.

All in all, a winner in my book, but not anything that's going to rewrite the history books.

Served on-tap at Cork City Pub in Hoboken, NJ

A: Pours a hazy pale orange in color with light amounts of gentle visible carbonation at the surface of the beer and a fair amount of apricot + peach highlights. The beer has a quarter finger tall light beige head that quickly reduces to just a very thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of overripe citrus/grapefruit hops along with lighter aromas of herbal hops, pine hops, and just a touch of bready malts.

T: Upfront there is a moderate biscuit/bready malt flavor with moderate to strong flavors of overripe citrus/grapefruit/tangerine and hints of herbal/floral hops. Light amounts of bitterness that fade quickly.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Light amounts of dryness in the finish.

O: Overall, there is something not quite right about the flavor of this brew but I just cannot put my finger on exactly what it is - possibly a strange combination of hop aromas/flavors. Otherwise this is a pretty pedestrian offering from Victory whom I expect a little more from.

First had: on tap at Victory

Hazy golden pour, topped with a foamy white head that receded to a thick collar and left a good amount of lacing on the glass. Aroma was hoppy--as would be expected--piney, lesser notes of toasted grains. Nice taste, similarly hoppy, resinous, piney, crisp, bitter, backed by a solid malt and toasted grain bill. Body was medium, a bit sticky, and about spot-on for the style. Very nice overall.

Victory Brewing : K-Bomb

LOOK: Hazed light unripe orange colored brew. White foam cap forms and leaves plenty of lace on the glass. So cloudy, almost looks like a wheat.

SMELL: Bright citrus hops, herb, tobacco, tangerine.

TASTE: Strongly bitter with a grapefruit rind flavor. Crisp biscuity malt character, easily overshadowed by aggressive citrus hops with all due bitterness. There is little hint of alcohol making this one a creeper. Did I say this is bitter? Bo yea!

FEEL: Medium bodied, well carbonated, semi dry hop bite.

OVERALL: Victory has been releasing all kinds of limited edition IPAs and I must say, I really like all of them, including this one. CHEERS
