Craft Beer Radar: Green Flash and Founders Brewing Co. collabo Linchpin White IPA


Linch Pin White IPA

San Diego based Green Flash Brewing Co. announced that they have partnered with like-minded Michigan brewer, Founders Brewing Co. to produce a limited release beer called Linchpin White IPA.   The diabolic duo of Chuck Silva (Green Flash) and Jeremy Kosmicki (Founders) secretly met in an unknown San Diego lair last month and conspired to develop a brew together in an uncommonly delicious and progressive beer style. Together that they will unleash this ale upon the Craft Brewers Conference and then continue their scheme with a limited release beginning May 2012. These well matched brewmasters have been individually producing several of the world’s top flavor-forward ales and have now come together to create a twisted monster of zesty flavor, complexity, big-ness, and hoppy yum yums.

Linchpin White IPA 
This soon to be released golden beer is bottle conditioned and is said to pour with frothy white foam and will entice you with a zing of tangerine aromas that mingle with distinct Belgian yeast esters. Citrus mania continues as heavy hop flavors of bitter orange dominate the brew which finishes with an epic chest bump of of American and Belgian yeasts.
“There’s a lot going on in this beer with two yeast strains, copious amounts of wheat malt, and a big focus on ‘C’ hops to deliver a citrus explosion,” explains Green Flash Brewmaster, Chuck Silva. “In fact we lined up more than a dozen hop varieties in the brewery to select three hops with the biggest citrus character to dry hop the beer. 
Linchpins are two simple shapes that combine to strengthen a bond amongst many different pieces. This Linchpin seeks to strengthen the bonds of the West Coast and Midwest beer scene as both breweries (and corresponding diabolical brewmaster) have been known to push boundaries in creating risky, new, flavor-forward styles. Linchpin White IPA will be released during the May 2012 Craft Brewers Conference in San Diego and will then be available in limited supply via bottle-conditioned 22oz bottles and also the keg for special release events nationally in May and June 2012.
