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.

This beer made me think differently about IPAs. Quite possibly the best beer I have ever had. I love the citrus bitter sweetness. Good malt back.. good head and lacing. If someone asked me there is one beer you could have till the end of time this would be it.

Really good with amazing notes of citrus and flowers. It numbs the tongue like most IPA's but is not overpowering.

Pours a light honey yellow with orange tint and med white head. Smells of tropical fruit and floral. Tastes of orange blossom, grapefruit, mandarin, sweet malts, bready. Medium body and carb but the hop character gives it a much lighter feel. Some citrus and pine on the aftertaste. Excellent beer.

Look: Poured into a nonic with a foamy head. Some splash lacing. Color is opaque, yellow-orange.

Smell: fresh hop aroma - fruity, citrus, white grape, some pine

Taste: Mellow bitterness. Very clean hop and malt profile, very balanced. I taste grapefruit, pineapple and blueberry

Feel: good carb, clean and sweet finish

Overall, the aroma and taste is delightful. I love how clean it tastes and finishes as well. Highly recommended!

Interesting beer, I love that it's a SMaSH. The mosaic do give a very mixed fruity flavor profile, but there's little in the way of sharp bitterness. It's quite smooth, yet flavorfully hopped. The malt backbone is solid and gives this beer an overall balance not usually found in IPAs.

Body is medium with a slightly slick finish and fruity afternotes. Certainly worth a try.

Compares to the better single IPAs on the planet. Dank, citrusy and delicious. Was the best part of my Texas trip by far.

The blueberry in this so big and delicious. With the Pilsner malt, it is has great balance off the hop.

On tap @ Strangeways.

Much hyped and highly anticipated brew, but as always, the proof is in the suds.

Hazy yellow-orange with a quilted tan froth. Smells of lemon, grapefruit and meringue. A mountain of resinous hops are followed with notes of orange, grapefruit and lemon on the back of the tongue. Has a grainy backbone. The bitterness really starts to take over later in game, but this one stays mostly balanced all the way through.

High style IPA drinking and bold and balanced to boot.

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.

A: In a tulip, this pours a hazy golden amber with a decent white, chalky head. Lacing is clumpy before it quickly dissipates.

S: Grapefruit is the most prominent aroma with hints of pine, citrus rind, and fresh-cut hay from my in-laws'. Sharp earthy notes come through as it warms a bit.

T: Although it starts with some forward hop bitterness, it sluices nicely into a creamy malt finish; the pilsner malt gives it a smooth finish to round out the Mosaic. This is not overly complicated, but it has beautiful, clean notes. The bottle mentions some blueberry, and I'm seeing it now.

M: Light and clean, YR drinks incredibly easily. It's a good thing this only rocks in at 6.8%.

O: For a $9 750mL at my local Whole Foods, this is probably dollar-for-dollar the best IPA I've had.
