Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
Formerly Pioneer Yellow Rose until is was made year-round.

A SMaSH, Single Malt and Single Hop, IPA using a caboodle (technical term for a large amount of malt) of malt and a new hop released in 2012 called Mosaic (HBC 369). It is a daughter of Simcoe (YCR 14), one of our favorite hops. Whole cone Mosaic is used for bittering, flavoring, and aroma in the kettle; it is also massively dry hopped. The beer is named after a Texas Heroine.
Tasting notes: chalk-white head with a very clean malt backbone. The hops impart strong grapefruit, pineapple, and blueberry flavor and aroma. A strong beer that is extremely quaffable.

Simply the best beer brewed in Texas in my opinion.

Quality and consistency are always there. The taste is always fantastic. It is a SMASH IPA.

Anytime I find this on tap I'm grabbing a pint. It is that good. Hangs with any of the top IPA's I've had from across the country.

This is absolutely my favorite current beer.

This beer is so simple, but at the same time the flavors are very complex.
The hops give it a characteristic of grapefruit combined with blueberry and pineapple. This is what makes this beer really intriguing to the pallet.

What makes this beer though, is the delicate balance of hops and malt.

Great job on this one.

As part of a trade I recived a HF growler fill of this, the tag said Lone Pint - Yellow Rose Single hopped Mosaic IPA so I'm guessing this is the correct place for the review.

A: Pale straw colored pour with a moderate amount of puffy white foam (even from a shipped growler). Very little haze with a lacing that shows you each sip (always my favorite).

S: Huge juicy citrus, tropical, pine aroma. strawberry, blueberry, melons mixed with kiwi and sweet orange. So aromatic I wanted to use it as an air freshener. A hint of bready malt character peeks through, but not much more.

T: The first sip is exactly like the aroma. Juicy, tropical and sublte pine with a moderate bitterness that cuts the sweetness. There is a sweetness that comes through but It seems to be coming from the flavor of the HBC 369. No alcohol, and the bready, doughy malt comes through more when your pallet adjusts to the texas sized flavor of the hops.

M: Zero astringancy, just clean and crisp. moderate body which compliments the hops nicey, if this was a dry finish (ala West Coast) I don't think it would be quite as enjoyable. Carbonation held up well on the trip from TX to WI.

O: Lone Pint says Yellow Rose is slang for Texas heroine, I don't know much about that, but after sharing this will a pretty girl... I wanted to drive the 1000+ miles to get a refil. There are some great beers coming from Texas and this hit my palet preferences to a T.

From a 32-ounce growler, filled the same day, pour into a standard pint glass.

I'm not going to waste much time with appearance and mouthfeel--it looks and feels fine.

More importantly, it smells and tastes awesome. The smell gives some of the pine/citrus associated with most IPAs, but those more common notes take a back seat. Instead, the nose is dominated by tropical fruit and almost something like rancid blueberry...but rancid in a very pleasant sense of the word.

The taste follows: tropical fruit and something vaguely berry-like. Yeah, there's some pine/citrus, but if that's what your into, there are a lof of IPAs and DIPAs that will go further toward satisfying. Likewise, if you want explosive IBUs and double digit ABV, this beer isn't for you.

Instead, this beer offers an exceedingly unique hop profile, in a very sessionable form. My understanding is that the only hops that go into it are whole cone Mosaic. I don't know of any other beers that give you nothing but Mosaic, which is an utter shame because this beer is awesome. I love the pure hop bombs as much as the next guy, but the hop profile on this IPA is so delicate and unique, it's alone on an island of deliciousness. This is the type of IPA that will delight IPA lovers because of it's uniqueness, but that even non-IPA lovers can get behind because it is not a palate wrecker.

If you can get your hands on it (it's not in bottles/cans), waste no time in doing so.

I've gotten to a point where I walk into a bar that has Yellow Rose and 50 other taps and ask for the Yellow Rose before even looking to see what else is available. After having YR for the first time, I started seeking out other Mosaic beers and while I think there are many that are quite delicious, at best I've found things that are "95% of yellow rose."

A: Color is pale yellow. Clear. Good lacing.

S: The nose has a lot of tropical fruit and a sweetness that the Mosaic brings.

T: The taste is phenomenal. There's grapefruit. A hint of pineapple, but not too much to make it cloying. It's really best described as "pure mosaic" since that's what it is. This takes the essence of a pretty awesome hop and distills it into a sessionable, delicious drink.

M: Crisp, a little sweet. Not as dry as could be expected considering the format. Quite good.

O: What I said above is true. Yellow Rose is my session beer, it's my "perusing the rest of the menu" beer, and it's the beer I want most when I go out. If Lone Pint ever bottles, it'll be my fridge beer as well.
