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.

500ml bottle, dated 8.29.16, poured into a 16oz tumbler glass. Enjoyed on 9.26.16, reviewed from Tasting Journal.

The beer pours a fairly hazy copper color, orange and gold hues with a big foamy white head, about two or three fingers high that has great retention and yields plenty of soapy lace. The aroma is nice, earthy mosaic hops, herbal, floral dank properties with nice tropical fruit and some bready malt. Pretty straightforward expression of mosaic. The flavors are nice, again, ample hoppiness, plenty of expected mosaic character, herbal, bitter bitter pine, plenty of tropical fruits, pineapple and guava, citrus peel, dank floral flavors with some stiff breadiness to balance this beer out. The mouthfeel is creamy, coating, medium body with lower carbonation that's smooth with an easy finish that is lightly dry.

Verdict: A nice IPA from Lone Pint, really good SMaSH beer at that. Mosaic is not my favorite hop, but this beer expresses it well with a nice balance of flavors. The bitterness is a bit up there, but all in all, this is a nice beer that will satisfy any hop head.

Wow, I didn't realize what I was about to experience when visiting El Paso for a quick business trip! We went to the Hoppy Monk for after dinner drinks with a crew of mostly non-geeks that ordered amaretto sours all night. The bubbly waitress gushed all over YR when I asked for a great local IPA and she wasn't kidding. Beautiful nose on this one, very reminiscent of some of the more tropical IPA's out there but with a breadier malt bill. Taste follows the nose with hints of blueberry and maybe peach? A totally unexpected surprise that I wish I could have hauled home!

Have consumed YR for over 1 year now mostly via the 750ml via HEB or Specs. YR had never failed to deliver a top 3 Texas IPA product. That changed this week, as I bought the new 4 pack of pints. The born date was 9/19, and the purchase was made 9/21, oh yeah-things are looking up already!

The immediate impression of the nose was "wtf" this is world class. The front and back end of a few quaffs confirm that YR has emerged as a true contender for national IPA recognition.

Well done Lone Pint, this beer is getting better which is hard to do!
