Yeah, she chugs alright. If I were going to enter a contest that required me to chug a half dozen IPA’s as fast as I could, this would probably make the short list of beers I would consider simply because it doesn’t have a lot of hops or complexity.
How Much:  7
I paid $10.99 for a 6-pack of 16oz tallboys. After 3 hours of mathematical computations and 2 broken calculators I figured out that’s about $8.25 for a regular 6-pack of 12oz cans. Totally decent price for an IPA, but it’s certainly not a big, sexy hop-forward IPA. If you prefer a mild IPA and don’t have a lot of extra coin, then give this one a shot.
It’s ok, but just doesn’t have the big hops that I require in an IPA. It actually reminds me a little of Full Sail IPA. It’s light and easy-drinking and doesn’t have the bold flavors of a west coast style IPA. It’s more like a standard pale ale which puts it in the realm of “entry-level” IPA.
Crank Yanker IPA is a year-round offering, but Eddyline Brewery has yet to distribute outside of Colorado.
