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.

Very nice, slightly hazy light gold. Not much head left when the waitress finally brought it to the table. Bright citrus/pine smell. Good complex flavor despite the single hop, single malt. You can tell it's a well crafted product that a lot of effort went into making it.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Look is a slightly hazy light apricot and poured with a finger plus of white head.

Aroma is big grapefruit, orange (maybe pineapple) and some pine

Taste is big grapefruit with some orange or tropical fruit coming in at the end. The grapefruit is succulent and semi sweet whereas a lot of other ipas you get the grapefruit peel.

Feel is smooth, crisp and clean. It's really pleasant.

Overall a very good IPA that would stack up to almost any normal (not NE style) IPA. Finally got to tick this beer and I'm thrilled that I got the opportunity.

Poured from the bottle into a Spiegelau IPA glass. Bottled July 25th 2017.

Opaque but stays away from turbid qualities, and more of a classic unfiltered appearance. Dark lemon to, graperfruit orange body color throughout. Real nice fluffly topped head, making three fingers with a creamy top and island puck. Soapy retention and good staying power. A very solid looking IPA.

Very impressive aroma for a single hop brew. Hop angle is nice and front with a good sweet malt balance. Pine sharp but with a very nice grapefuit to orange citrus tone, including large amounts of sweet zest going on. Big amounts of sweet spritzy orange and grapefruit just come straight out fresh and rich. Excellent brew on the nose.

Delicious palate. Aroma matches flavors on the tongue nicely, with soft hop grapefruit, and more lemon citrus qualities coming along. Finishes with a touch of pine/herb but with more soft bodied malt, and a touch of more fruit. Flirts between pale ale lightness and IPA hop blasting aromatics. Not much sense of pils character, but the IPA is made for center stage. Agree upon a bit of chalky finish a bit, but would just love some bakery and chewy density to set this on fire.

Fantastic smash beer.

Poured from fridge temp. Pours an opaque yellow with strong and robust white head. Nose is aromatic pine, citrus peel, mint, a bit of salt, bread, and hops. Taste is really smooth. Hoppy bitterness, citrus peel, a bit of salt. Mouthfeel is dry and sticky. Bitterness lingers like grapefruit peel. Really nice.

What a juicy drinkable IPA. Pours gold , some lacing, nice frothy white head. Aroma is super fresh citrus and pine. Taste is the same but even better, slightly bitter. Feel is light-medium carbonated and softer than most IPAs I've ever had. Overall, one of the most straightforward, yet tasty and drinkable IPAs I've ever had!

One of the best smash IPA's, usually (I'll explain in a minute). Poured into a large glass reveals an instant aroma of citrus and pine and a hazy unfiltered appearance with a medium head. The taste is pure joy in a glass with a strong grapefruit citrus flavor. Has a slight carbonated feel in the mouth. My only complaint is that Lone Pint seems to be inconsistent with this brew from time to time. I've had it when it's awesome and other times so so. If they can get it together, this will be the hard one to beat.

Yellow Rose IPA has a very thick, frothy, off-white head, a yellow-gold, hazy appearance, especially following the "swish & pour", and heavy glass lacing. Aroma is of sharp, piney hops, and the flavor is of pine, citrus fruit, sweet, white bread, and overall sugar. Mouthfeel is medium, and Yellow Rose IPA finishes mostly dry.

Tasted from bottle. Pours a murky yellow with huge thick white head. Aroma of pineapple, melons, lemons. Taste is a nice clean bitterness throughout that is very well balanced. Flavors of pineapple, lemon, grapefruit, caramel. Excellent IPA.
