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.

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.

On tap at Downhouse in Houston.

A: Pours a clear yellow/orange color. A two finger white head forms with good retention, and patchy lace is left behind.
S: Big hops up front. Juicy and tropical fruity aromas. Peach, mango, pineapple. Resinous pine and citrus aromas. Not a lot of malt balance, but enough hop character to make up for that. Not just bitterness.
T: Follows the nose with a tropical juicy flavor. Mango and pineapple are strong. A resinous, piny, citrus, and grapefruit bitterness lingers on a bit to much for me. A small hit, and still very enjoyable. Again, not much balance with the malts, but the hops have lots of character.
M/D: A medium body with moderate carbonation. Crisp, and dry as a bone. Easy and enjoyable to drink. I have had several since this started popping up around Houston.

A big hop bomb, but one with lots of character. Which are the IPA's I like. Without a doubt the best thing Lone Pint has done so far. Recommended.

Clear sunny yellow color with a bright white head. Tropical fruit aroma with juicy citrus notes, mango, light crackery malt. Tastes of tropical fruits and bright citrus. Citra definitely seems the culprit here. Light balancing maltiness, and a medium bitterness that finishes clean. Lighter In body, somewhat crisp, definitely refreshing and super easy drinking. Thanks to lndsy for suggesting I grab a growler! Delish!

Thanks to Lnashsig for the growler.
Orange pour with a white head. The aroma and flavor are both dominated by hops. I get some wonderful grapefruit notes as well as a hint of pine. There is also some biscuit malt notes that keep the bitterness from being too high. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Nice pale ale.
