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.

Reviewing the Yellow Rose, a single hop (Mosaic) IPA from The Lone Pint Brewery, out of Magnolia, Texas.

Score: 85

Unconfirmed bottling date, but presumed fresh (less than a month old) based on the representations of the trader. Served in a Hopslam snifter and enjoyed on 02/11/15.

Appearance: Pours a translucent, murky orange color with two fingers of seafoam head that settle to clusters of clumps atop the glass. Very good lacing and retention. 4.5/5

Smell: Grapefruit, melon, and berry. A touch of grassy/earthy tones too. Lovely, fruity mix without a bitter-apparent nose. 4.25/5

Taste: Grapefruit flavor, bready malt and a little fruitiness upfront with spicy, earthy tones on the finish and a hint of onion that lingers long past the finish on the very back of the palate. Very mild bitterness. 3.5/5

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, appropriately carbonated (on the higher end for an IPA, though). Has a mild bitter bite upfront palliated by a maltiness that quickly counterbalances. Has a foamy mouthfeel as it sits on the tongue. 4/5

Overall: A solid, but unspectacular IPA offering (though Mosaic is admittedly not my hop of choice). Definitely worth a pint, but not a must-seek brew for my preferences.

Cost: $10 for a 750 ml bottle.

4.7/5  rDev +5.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

Appearance: hazy golden color with a murky body. Massive head on a solid pour which retained throughout. Sticky rings of lacing left behind.

Smell: tropical fruit godliness jumps out at you immediately. Slyly underneath is a pleasant bitterness which peaks mid body. But my favorite part is a sweet, bready malt bill which plays so perfectly off the bright hops. Wonderful layers and perfect execution of what is found on the aroma.

Taste: a soft pillow of tropical fruits lays on the palate and is in no hurry to leave. Another dimension of the hops jump on mid palate with a perfect twinge of bitterness. But like the aroma, a truly masterful malt bill makes this one for the ages. Touches of sweet caramel, fresh bread, and some maple syrup dance on the back end. Truly exquisite.

Mouthfeel: soft bright hops with a necessary layer of malt heaviness and a lingering bitterness. Carbonation is perfect.

Overall: not sure what else you could ask for out of a single IPA. A masterful malt bill and a celebration of the wonderful Mosaic hop, Lone Pint has put together a classic here.

16 oz. on tap poured into Lone Pint nonic at the brewery
(drank 2/7/15 during brewery's Saturday tour day)

L: yellow/gold ... no red; white head, nothing remarkable; no major lacing and little-to-no stick; not 100% clear but clear around edges and clearing up

S: grapefruit, onion ... sweet but with a hint of a bitter bit lurking in there; the grapefruit holds true; the onion might be a personal thing, but it's definitely there for me, perhaps green onions

T: grapefruit/onion and grass ... the combination is almost salty with the onion being a real sweet yellow onion, balancing things out by the end, so it's never very bitter; there must be plenty of malt in here, for it's sweet at times, but there's no malt flavor/taste you can detect other than a very generic "sweet" -- and that's perfect, because the mosaic hops are so perfectly used here that you get a ton of hop flavor in grapefruit and grass with relatively little bitterness

F: drinkably light and full ... man, *this* is good ... it's what every American pale ale should strive for IMO. plenty of carbonation.

O: I've had this on-tap a few times, but finally took some notes at the brewery Saturday -- it has held up each time I've tried it, and the thing that really stands out is how it's not crazy bitter yet still chock full of hop flavor, and it pulls that off without getting overly mushy caramely/mango sweet like many hop salads. if the bottled version of this holds up, man ... it's worth every penny.
