4.85/5 rDev +7.8%
Pours a light golden/straw color. Nice white head, thick and creamy.
Smell is huge grapefruit and citrus. In one word. Amazing. Very enticing.
Taste is very light and crisp at first with a huge grapefruit flavor. Mellows from an almost grapefruit juice taste to a nice, very crisp hop bitterness, which lingers on the finish.
Mouthfeel is extremely light.
Lives up to the hype.

I was super excited to be able to try this SMaSH (Single Malt and Single Hop) IPA. Heard good things about it from a few people and the brewers. Unfortunately, I'm drinking the last bit from my growler (about 5 days old, opened a couple of times) and it's a little bit flat. Fortunately, I have drank over a gallon of it fresh within the past week so my memory shouldn't be too shabby. I'll review what I'm drinking but add on to it with notes I took previously and pictures I took.
Poured into a pint glass, this beer is almost the embodiment of it's name: deep golden yellow, slight haze, and a tight 1/2 inch head (from before). The smell was exquisite, with notes of orange juice, papaya, mango, slight grapefruit. I seriously could've drank the smell.
Taste wise, the beer was phenomenal. Very floral, with grapefruit tastes, though the beginning notes are on the tropical side, which I loved. Very well balanced IPA. Mouthfeel, from what I remember, was quite light. Not too much bitterness that you had a resin-like tongue feel, but enough bitterness there to remind that this was a IPA that deserves another sip to refresh that lovely bitter flowery yet piney taste in the mouth.
Overall? The best IPA I have ever had. I have not yet had the pleasure to enjoy Pliny nor Heady Topper, but I have enjoyed Sculpin and Odell IPA and would always choose the Yellow Rose if given the chance. This beer demands to be drank fresh, and even on the flat side in a growler, it still holds its own against other IPAs. Though if you've tried it both fresh and flat, you'll notice it loses a lot of it's amazing aroma from the Mosaic hop and bit of the taste. If you growl it, drink within 12 hours. Please. You are doing yourself a disservice otherwise. If you live in Texas and want an IPA that is up and coming to be big player, visit Lone Pint for the Yellow Rose. You won't be disappointed.

It's got a great golden hay color.
Huge sweet grapefruit, big peach, orange peel, and a slight basil flower on the nose.
Big burst of mosaic hops up front, but submits to the malt on the finish. It finishes dry, but it's not bitter like most IPA's.
I love the big, bold, massive IPA's and DIPA's, but this is probably one of the most enjoyable IPA's I've ever had. I simply want to drink as much of it as possible.
Really a phenomenal beer all around. It's amazing this brewery that just started is making something superior. A tremendous achievement for Lone Pint. I hope they start entering this in the big competitions to bring it the awards it deserves.
