Draft at The Pour House in Westmont, NJ.

Pours a hazy, pale golden orange color with tangerine edges and a two finger pillowy white head.  Good retention, slowly fading into a lasting ring.  The glass is left coated with streaks of soapy lace.

Dank floral hop aroma with a ton of tropical and citrus fruit character along with earthy, grassy pine needle and resinous oils.  Some alcohol/boozy sweetness evident in the nose as well but it's dominated by the sweeter fruit notes, with strong hints of grapefruit, tangerine and blood orange.

Medium bodied with a slight creamy texture but still light and easy to drink with a complex hop profile that's nicely balanced by a pale malt backbone.  Insanely drinkable even with some alcohol heat/sweetness in finish.  Dank, piny bitterness countered by grapefruit, pineapple, orange peel and mango sweetness.  Nice malt presence underneath but it doesn't interfere with the juicy hop flavors.  Hints of caramel, toffee and biscuit toward the finish.  Complex and well balanced with great hop flavor.  ABV is nicely masked with only slight heat, making this beer very easy to drink.  One of the better IPAs I've had from Victory.

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

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

M: Medium in heft with a good creamy feel.

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.

Poured hazy as hell. Orange-yellow beer. Dense white cap ain't even moving. Love it. AND, it's in a pint glass! That means more beer, folks.

Smells of lemongrass, sweet flowers, tangerine, and (dare I say it) a hint of banana? Interesting nose for a IIPA.

Tastes of some new hybrid hop. Lightly cat pissy, but kiwi and tangerine citrus with some firm pine notes that were undefinable in the aroma. Lots of bitterness on the tongue and at the top of the throat. Surprisingly, it's pretty dry. I pick up what smelled like banana in the flavor. It's a creamy tangy fruit note that can no longer be described as banana. A weird flavor profile that works.

A little harsh. Big bitterness excites the pockets of the mouth, all the while, the booze is pawing at me. Body is just bigger than medium and the carb is a little too agitating for my liking. Heady.

I liked the sample more than the full pour.
