Formerly Pioneer Yellow Rose until it 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.

Pretty average and disappointing fitting the TX stereotype.

Buttery taste, minimal hop aroma and flavor. Probably an old bottle but without bottle dating no way to know.

Have had on draft and from bottle. Decent nose of citrus, earthiness and hops. Flavor just wasn't there for me compared to two hearted, hopslam, or heady which is the hype that comes associated with it. Light bitterness, lot of floral, and earthy to the taste. Nice to try once, but wouldn't spend money on again.

Was really excited about trying this one. Extremely disappointed. Lots of medicine taste to me. Almost like a cough drop. Not sure if I got a bad batch or what. Would be willing to try again but not a fan,

Nice juicy tropical hop profile, but also syrupy sweet. Might enjoy this a lot more with a touch more bittering hops and a lower FG.

Appearance: Head is bright-white and fluffy. Drops to a small cap and collar with big sheets of lacing down the glass. A hazy gold with some bright yellows when held to direct light. Pours with a moderate carbonation.

Smell: Sweet fruit. Loaded with pineapple, grapefruit, and peach. Tropical and then some. Mosaic and then some. Malts are more than a balance to the aggressive hop schedule. Pushes a bunch of bread crust and a mildly toasted malt coupled with some mild caramelized sweetness. A touch of pear and some mild floral elements. Some other fruit creeps in and it's some kind of berry. A touch of tart tannic fruit skin as well. Some powdery yeast.

Taste: A touch of bitter flower petal thrown in the mix. A touch woody as well. Tropical fruit is in abundance. Mango, loads of pineapple, peach, lemon and lime. Deeply fruity. Malt backbone is deeply bready with some solid toasted notes. Pushes bread and undercooked biscuit. Powdery yeast adds another element. A touch of aspirin and bitter wood. Some floral elements as well. Mildly herbal with some solid earth undertones - almost dirty. Lingering bitterness . Slight sweetness - a touch of caramelization.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with a moderate carbonation. Juicy initial sip gives way to a mostly clean finish. Runs a bit lighter as it warms, but it never falls apart.

Overall: Good thing I have 2 pints.

I'm not a huge mosaic fan most of the time, but this manages to balance it with a big malt presence. Not aggressive or big in any way. It's worth a try and easy to kill the 32oz growler.
