Knee Deep’s Batch 138 India Pale Ale is brewed with three types of C hops and Simcoe, which gives this West Coast IPA an aroma that resembles a cat that has peed in a pine tree. Batch 138 finishes dry and crisp and is sure to leave you in hop euphoria.

4.28/5  rDev +11.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25

A: poured into a New Belgium glass. Light orange with an inch of white head with great retention.

S: smells of tropical fruits, Citrus and the high sierras.

T: pine and citrus and bitterness which is amazing, balanced by some caramel.

M: Its that perfect IPA bitter that hits the tongue right away. Oily, resiny, balanced.

O: I love Simtra and I thought I'd be disappointed in this. For those looking for a 7/70 (alcohol/IBU), this is one of the best there is. I prefer it to Sculpin.

Bought this on a whim as knee deep usually does ipas very well.

Poured amazing, golden orange clear with a sticky white head.

Smells of piney sweet mango and a touch of earthy notes.

Taste is also stellar with some herbal pine and a touch of tropical fruit.

Mouthfeel is viscous yet still sharp. Balances it nicely.

Overall I would love to try this again and on tap.

4.5/5  rDev +17.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: poured into a duvel tulip to a light orange with a finger of dense slightly off white head that retains well
S: smells of tropical fruits, some pine and a bit of grapefruit rind. An underlying sweetness can be found throughout the nose.
T: bitter pine and citrus with some faint tropical fruit flavor, slight caramel sweetness along with some herbal and oily hop resin flavor. aftertaste is a bit earthy and slightly piney with the slightest amount of sweetness
M: you can feel the bitterness on the tongue but the beer is on the light side of medium with decent carb that starts off prickly and then subsides. after the swallow there is a lingering bitterness and slight oiliness from the hops
O: Overall Knee Deep knows their way around an IPA and I'm very impressed with this one. From every angle this beer can go toe to toe with any of the greats
