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.

32 oz howler pours a more yellow than gold color with a fine-bubbled white head. Fair retention and outstanding lace.

Nose is straight up mosaic. take a handful of buds, cruch em up and there you have it. So juicy, so tropical. Malts are super-light - Id be surprised if any specialty grains were used.

Taste focuses way more on hop flavor than bitterness and the malt might as well not exist. West Coast style done well in the lone star state. I actually wouldnt mind a little heftier bitterness and malt bill though and the single hop aspect only adds to the one-dimensional profile of the beer. But oooh, that one dimension is pretty fucking righteous. It goes down so smooth and easy. I cant see myself ever passing this up on tap for at least a pint or two, but I could see it getting a little borish beyond that.

Bright golden yellow pour from the draft at Rodeo Goat in Fort Worth. Moderate to slight white head that settles with some lacing. Citrus (esp. grapefruit) nose with a bit of sweet. Taste is huge and moderately sweet grapefruit with some nice maltiness. Very crisp with hoppy bitterness lingering. Really surprised with how good this IPA is. As good as Deep Ellum's IPA. Truly delicious.
