A 22oz bottle picked up at Green's on Buford Hwy

A - A bright yellow, with 1 inch of head and sticky lace left on the glass. No clarity, unfiltered with sediment floating around

S - Citrus hops and spices.

T - Mild citrus and fruit notes, white pepper, almost begian style IPA. A bit of a bitter aftertaste. Tasty!

M - Highly carbonated and sizzles in your mouth. Nice!

O - A very good take on a white IPA. I am digging it. Also love that 2 of my favorite breweries are collobarating. Hope to see more collaborations between the two

3.81/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

This White IPA pours a hazy, honey amber color and it is capped by an inch of billowy, white head. The foam slowly dissipates, but it does leave a solid ring of lacing around the glass. Belgian yeast esters and a touch of wheat quickly give way to citrus fruit aromas including tangerines and grapefruit. The brew starts out like a Belgian Wit, with orange zest and coriander both detected, and a subtle hint of pepper leads way to citrusy hop flavors that pull through the finish. Moderately carbonated, Linchpin features a medium-light body.

A - Rumpelstiltskin golden straw color with a huge 3 to 4 fingers worth of billowy white head (pour this over a sink) nice carbonation with some alcohol feet . Sticky long lasting lacing. Awesome looking!

S - Grapefruit hop bitters with some light citrus with sweet tarty lemon notes. Lot more hops are evident if you sniff the neck. Getting a high astringency which I am not surprised by since this is part Green Flash and they are known for the smell of their hops.

T - Lots of citrus like I expected and the hop profile follows the nose nicely. Astringent qualities in the middle of the mouth that smooths out with some of that Belgian yeast taking over. The end of the mouth is lots of earthy tastes maybe some lemon grass.

M - Highly carbonated with a medium body lots of dry effervescent qualities from the hops and lemony zests.

O - I am not sure the last time I had a Belgian IPA if ever but as a White Ale or a Belgian Pale I can say this carries lots of those big west coast hop characteristics over into making this a full fledged IIPA. This is a collaboration between two of my favorite breweries. I think also something should be said for how easy drinking this is despite the higher ABV. Damn good!
