COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Flavour of sweet maltiness, grapefruit, floral notes and toffee sweetness. Medium bodied. Soft. Finishes sweet. Thinnish mouthfeel. I wish this was fresh.

Bottled 05/27/15 - Pours clear orange with a foamy white head. Aroma of grassy hops, caramel, pine, citrus and lemon.

alexsdad06 (8713) - Ohio, USA - JUN 27, 2015
22 oz. bottle picked up locally (we seem to get these in pretty good shape). Pours a hazy golden color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have dank, catty, resiny and citrus hops, lightly toasted malt, caramel, some earthy notes to the finish, pretty decent IPA even shipped across the country.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 14/20
Koskela (500) - Marysville, California, USA - JUN 24, 2015
A musty hop with a touch of simcoe aroma comes from this hazy yellow brew with tiny white bubbles forming around the edges of the glass. A citrusy hop flavor collides with the sweet maltieness and bitter of this medium bodied crisp ale. The trio of flavors meld well making this ipa very well rounded. In the aftertaste the sweetness fades and a slight grain flavor comes out as the bitterness stays throughout. I get a grapefruit citrusy aftertaste that lingers for awhile.

Chuckh7 (4) - - JUN 24, 2015 does not count
Not very hoppy smell with hint of sweetness. Looks pretty clean. Less hop flavor than most IPAs. Pretty easy to drink not thick flavored. Overall crisp IPA but not too strong.
