Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: champ103 on 04-30-2013

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.

Appearance: Arrives with a slightly hazy amber color and a modest cap that leaves a bit of splashy lace

Smell: A fruit basket aroma, with melon, pineapple, berry, grapefruit and a powdered sugar coating

Taste: Just a touch of caramel malt, up front, and then the fruit flavors take over, bringing the basket of flavors detected in the aroma; the bitterness never builds and the finish is somewhat sweet

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A quaffable IPA - love the fruit tones but would like to see more bitterness and less sweetness in the finish; quite good, though

Got to try this not even 5 days old. Super fresh!

Appearance is murky with a golden, caramelized orange tinge.

Aroma is very citrusy. As it warmed, a weird prune/fig aroma came through and threw me off. Still good.

Flavor was great. Bitter with a nice malty sweetness.

This was good. Not in my top IPAs. I've had, but still delicious and refreshing.

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,

Look it's so great but don't judge a book by its cover. Even the label isn't the greatest logo/label but smell & taste is amazing. I'm more into the super bitter IPA's from 70-100+ ibu and even w this 62 ibu's, it is extremely satisfying to my taste buds. Definitely don't go without trying this one made by Lone Pint.

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.

huge thanks to SteveyTI for the bottle

A: poured into an IPA glass to a slightly hazed dark yellow with a three finger dense white head that retains well and leaves excellent lacing
S: smells of tropical fruits, citrus and some pineapple with a little underlying malt sweetness
T: taste is tropical fruits, citrus, mango and papaya with a little bit of sweet malt flavor. slightly floral as well. swallow is grapefruit rind, more tropical fruit and a little earthy.
M: fairly light without being watery with slightly prickly carbonation and a refreshing and slightly hop oily finish
O: This is a fantastic IPA. Big and bright hop flavors with just enough malt to provide some balance makes this one a pleasure to drink.
