I am at Cranker's Restaurant on 68th St.
It is at the 68th St exit on US131 south of Grand Rapids, MI.
I am quite impressed with this IPA.
Great Piney flavor.
Two finger head.
Really easy drinking beer.
Nice warm feel in the back of the throat.
I would buy it again.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured into a shaker pint. No bottling date.
Appearance: Simple looking black label with a portrait of a person that I should maybe possibly know but don't. Not especially fancy, but it's decent (muchlikethebeeritself*AHEM*). Slightly hazy yellow color with about three fingers worth of a soapy kind of head. It dies down slowly after awhile, but a finger's worth sticks around the whole time. Lacing's patchy.
Smell: Soapy hops. To be more specific, piney hops. Malt spiciness is also there. It's alright, but somewhat odd at the same time.
Taste: That soapy hop flavor is strong on the front, and then a surprisingly large amount of bitterness on the finish. There's a nice malty taste on the finish, but there's still a lot of bitterness in spite of that. Rather dry and unbalanced. I've had worse IPAs, but this isn't exactly that great. The carbonation is about middle-of-the-road with a pretty light feel.
Forgettable IPA. I've had a few Crankers beers, and really, all of their beers have been rather average-at-best. If you want to try a beer from the brewery, try out their coconut porter.
