Linchpin White IPA – Green Flash/Founders Collaboration

7.0% ABV
Purchased at Corti Brothers ($5.29 /22 oz. bomber) and poured into pint glasses.

His Notes:

This collaboration beer between San Diego stalwart Green Flash and Michigan-based Founders pours butterscotch yellow with a fluffy, bright white head.  Linchpin has a nose of zesty citrus, especially lemon and grapefruit, and a prominent yeastiness that it gives it the overall aroma of a lemon cookie.  That bready quality does not extend to the taste, which offers grapefruit bitterness on the first swallow, backed by even more citrus on the retreat.  It’s refreshing at first, but one sip goes a long way, and Linchpin’s mouth-coating citrus aftertaste (apparently only produced by the blend of hops) actually left me parched.  This one is for hardcore fans of the white IPA style only.
