COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The color of pale honey, K Bomb greets you with a hop aroma explosion reminiscent of lemon, citrus and pine. Its initially assertive bitterness finishes into juicy flavors of melon, pineapple, mango, grapefruit, lemon and resinous pine. Lightly kissed by balancing malt flavors (hence the K), K Bomb celebrates the hop in a booming manner.

Very grassy hop profile, very victory... Pale golden color, smaller white head w nice lacing... Not excessively aromatic, fruitiness develops as it warms, dry finish...

minutemat (1779) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 12, 2013
Keg @ Friends of Ham, Leeds. A sumptuous double IPA with a well-blended mix of pine and caramel and nice, measured bitterness. Hope to meet this beer again one day.

Imaena (1858) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 11, 2013
Bottle. This is a pretty solid IPA with lots of nice hop and malt interplay. Well balanced.

egajdzis (5370) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 2, 2013
Golden color with a small, white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, pine, tropical fruits, and some citrus. Taste of citrus, resiny pine, tropical fruits, and light bitterness in the finish. The best DIPA that I’ve had from Victory.

Nickls (1876) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 8, 2013
Tap. Slightly hazy vibrant golden straw yellow with a thin white head. Definitley hoppy and devoid of much sweetness in the aroma, with grapefruit featuring mostly and some pine. Flavor is quite dry, hoppy, and get touches of onion and garlic at the end. Medium to lighter body. Not bad

DuffMan (6901) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 24, 2013
On tap @ Radio Maria. Pale yellow body, moderate white head. Surprisingly light, with lemon peel and pine, but pretty low- key after having just finished Stone’s Enjoy By. This DEFINITELY suffers from direct comparison (any hoppy beer would).

Beerman6686 (4475) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 22, 2013
This one purest a darker yellow color with a fluffy white head. Aroma was tropical and pinstripes hops, with very light toast and pale malt. Flavor was similar, pretty juicy and taste. Abv is hidden well. Better ipas are coming from victory!

Drake (8617) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - APR 9, 2013
Draft at Beer Run. Pours a clear amber color with a thin white head. Fair head retention. Aroma of resin, herbal, earth and pine hops with faint malts. The taste is caramel and biscuit malts, pine and resin hops. Medium bodied.

on tap-tight offwhite head with trailing lace-yellow. A-lemon/peach. T-lemon hops, lt malt-bready.

jzaprala (7) - Exton, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 29, 2013 does not count
Nice grapefruit, citrus, pine overtones to this taste. Aromas are very citrus. Clean crisp finish. Overall a refreshing brew. Perhaps a little better balance in the body flavor balance.
