Here is what Eddyline had to say about it: Like your favorite single track, this IPA has it all! An insanely drinkable IPA, with enough maltiness to balance the incredible citrus aromoa and hop finish. You’ll be racing back for another! 2014 World Beer Championship Silver Medal.

Dustin’s Brewreview and Notes:
Aroma: Light melony-pear aroma, not in your face; noticeable medium, bready, malt aroma; 7/12
Appearance: Somewhere between straw/copper colored; transparent; white colored light-head; low amounts of cascading bubbles; 3/3
Flavor: well balanced! mellow-hop bitterness with a solid graham cracker malt backbone; tastes of medium pear-esters; finishes with a lingering, but low, aftertaste of hop bitterness; 17/20
Mouthfeel: full bodied and a little chewy; light carbonation and no noticeable astringency or notes of alcohol; mouth-coating creaminess; 5/5
Overall: Very nice representation of an IPA; I really like the flavor and mouthfeel of this beer; not a typical flavor profile of citrus, pine and floral notes, which is appreciated; I would have liked a lot more hop aroma; 8/10
Dustin gives Eddyline Crank Yanker IPA, a 40/50.
