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.

Great craft beer in my home state of Texas is hard to find. I have traveled the West Coast, the Pacific Northwest and Alaska for the past 15 years searching out great craft beer. In recent years more craft breweries have popped up and while some have gone and others simply are mediocre at best there are some keeping it simple and putting focus on the beer not the money they can make. lone Pint is one such brewery and they have made an IPA, Yellow Rose, that to me stands up there with the IPAs made in the places I mentioned before.

Yellow Rose is a bold hoppy IPA that smells of citrus, floral and and has a sweetness to it. Mosaic hops are what makes this IPA remind me of the West Coast IPAs I feel in love with a couple years ago. It has a nice citrus/floral taste to it and there is no doubt about the hops. You taste them! Like the smell there is a hint of sweetness but only slight.

If you can find this one try it! I fancy myself a Hop Head (or IPA Freak) and this is in my top three!
