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.

I've been trying to get a hold of this beer for some time. Got the last 4pk at Whole Foods today. Very cool label. 16.9 oz bottled 1/17/17. A little over 2 weeks old.

L: Pours yellow cloudy with a thick frothy white head.
A: Smells fruity and hoppy and delicious
T: Light with little bitterness. citrous-grapefruit like taste predominates. Amazed how wonderful this taste. One of the best IPA's I've had (not an IPA guy). I could drink this beer regularly
F: Clean light taste. low carbonation and low bitterness (but it does have a 62 IBU rating)
O: This would be a great beer to drink anytime but especially after being out in the hot Texas sun and wanting to cool off with something. Light and refreshing. This beer did not disappoint

Knockout grapefruit/citrus nose. Great head and lacing. Soft and approachable front palate with a good follow-through. Top 10 IPA for me.

This is my go to IPA when I cannot decide or do not feel like experimenting with other IPA's. I am not happy about the new bottle design but hey, it all about what's in the bottle, right?!

This is a very unique (and delicious) beer. Poured from a 16.9oz bottle into a tulip glass. It was dated 1/2/2017 and I drank it 5 days after (quite fresh).

L: Not much carbonation, light lacing, and has some kind of sediment floating in it.
S: The smell is just out of this world... it just throws off an immense hoppy aroma.
T: It has a great taste with significant hop flavor, but it lacks any of the usual bitter leave of a hoppy brew and seems unusually sweet. The malt seems subtle in spite of its obvious presence making things quite sweet. Besides the grapefruit taste, it seems almost like there might be a little honey in this.

Personally, I think this one is worthy of the hype surrounding it, a really fine beer.

Wow. Been to Texas many times to visit family, and always came back wanting more from local breweries. Jordan though at HEB in Vintage Park recommend this. Awesome - this poured an extremely clear yellowish lager color so I was not expecting the fruity hop bomb that came. This was almost west coast like, and a great find . Nice stuff. Now don't sell to InBev!!

Sweet Tropical Aromas. Juicy POG flavor. Medium body with integrated hops. Clean tingle finish there are the hops. Very nice beer.

For those who like juice bombs with hoppy finish!

Not a lot of bubbles, and the color is washed out amber, but the flavor is amazing. If you like floral hops, it is awesome. No head, sweet flavor with amazing citrus hops. Beers claim to have grapefruit or floral flavor, and then it is malty and dry. This provides exactly what citrus hunters are looking for. It is not pretty, but the flavor is there. Look to "wolf among weeds" from LA brewery Golden Road, but this Texas brew is amazing. A rare find and totally satisfying. What it in CA.

Very unique IPA. Has an interesting flavor, almost herb like with some honey notes. Overall, a great IPA, beautiful, flavorful, one of a kind even, but not what I was expecting. Cheers!
