BEER INFO

Brewed by:
The Lone Pint Brewery
Texas, United States
lonepint.com

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.80%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
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 tasted less of citrus, and grapefruit for me, and more like the juniper taste you get from gin. It sat unfinished as the three other guys at the table with me also did not care for it.

Very overrated and just not that good in general for an IPA. I'm confused.

Shared this with a couple of friends at a share. Poured really cloudy. Good size very white head. Smell was meh. Lots to be desired. Left me searching. Taste was the same as aroma just searching to find flavors. Bland. Tasted like my first homebrew IPA. NOT IMPRESSED!!!

Most overrated beer in the top 250. Don't understand why people all seek this out. Nose is grass and grain. hop bitterness and juiciness is lower than your average pale ale from any old brewery. finish is average. There just isn't really anything going on here. Maybe I got an old bottle shipped to me?

Buttery taste, minimal hop aroma and flavor. Probably an old bottle but without bottle dating no way to know.

Maybe I had a bad bottle, or maybe it was an old bottle - I couldn't read the date - but I don't get the hype for this beer at all. The appearance was a dirty, milky, cloudy orange, which looked somewhat unpleasant. At least there were no floaties. Maybe I just don't like mosaic hops; that could be it.

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.

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,

750, light yellow. Slightly hoppy, low bitterness. Lotus of greens, Grassy, weedy, underbrush. Under-hopped for the amount of malt in my opinion. Like it was an IPA hopped in APA territory. Not seeing what the fuss is about.

Bottle pour into a tulip. No apparent bottle date but was deemed to be fresh from my trade partner. Mosaic hops were detectable but overall this one was far too malty/almost oaky to enjoy...big-time disappointment. Likely past its prime but unable to tell for sure without a bottle date.

Picked up a bottle at Whole foods and was disappointed to find it had skunked.
The everlasting memory will be the assorted fagbutt ashtray finish.
I might give it another go once I get the taste of peat out of my mouth...
Shame
