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.

It's good. It's diversely malty and hoppy at the same time. Top 250 though? Not sure how that is.

appearance- Golden amber color, cloudy with some visibility, and pours a one inch head.

aroma- Grapefruit, pine, berries, and a sweet bready malt.

taste- Noticeable taste of berries up front followed by grapefruit and orange citrus flavors. Finish has a combo of sweet citrusy hops and little bit of bread malt. There's some bitterness in the middle, but its mild.

feel- Medium carbonation and medium feel. Finish is mostly clean with minimal residual sweetness.

overall- Great ipa and deserving of the acclaim. The mosaic hops are showcased very well with berries and sweet citrus flavors, and a clean malt that makes for a easy drinker. Can't think of much that would improve this; maybe a little more bitterness but that's minor.

Poured from a bottle into a snifter. Bottled 3/13/17.

A: Pours a slightly hazy, golden orange in color with a one inch, frothy, paper white head with good retention. Thick, billowy white lacing throughout.

S: Mostly aromas of citrus including orange, grapefruit, and tangerine with lighter notes of caramel malts and piney hops.

T: Citrus forward SMASH IPA with notes of grapefruit, orange, pineapple, and mixed berries. Light piney hop bitterness.

F: Light to medium bodied. Velvety smooth, pillowy mouthfeel. Slight dryness on the finish. Light carbonation.

O: Overall, this is a great SMASH IPA. Citrusy and super crushable. Mouthfeel is light and pillowy, on point. Great stuff. Would definitely try this again and would like to try it fresh.

Poured into a Duvel tulip. Label says 03/27/17.

A- Pours a semi-hazy medium amber color with a 3/4 inch off-white head that retains well before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and a large side patch of bubbly surface foam. Resilient lacing leaves large clots behind.

S- Great classic mosaic hop nose with a nice cereal grain malt sweetness to support it.

T- Flavor doesn't quite live up to the nose. The hop character is decent but a bit limp and overshadowed by the malt presence. Bitterness is on the lower end of the spectrum. Very easy to drink, just not super vibrant.

M- Somewhat dry and a bit sharp from the hops. Medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the lighter side.

O- A solid IPA but not one that I would actively seek out again.

Nice beer! Pours a semi hazy straw yellow with light orange hue. Nose is the star! Bright and fresh. Fresh cute citrus and melon. Taste of fresh cut oranges, light pinnaple juice and honeydew melon. A bit of malt character in there as well. Medium to full bodied with a crisp somewhat dry finish.

Partial because I'm a Texan but this IPA is in the pantheon for me. Taste is on par with any alchemist, trillium, or Treehouse I've had. Wish it was unfiltered for a better experience but this is the best beer in Texas.

Impressively tasty considering the journey to VT. Many other IPAs from closer breweries haven't held up nearly so well. It was clean, light, and refreshing with bright hop flavors. The person who shared the bottle with me wasn't as impressed, but he'd heard it was like Heady and it really wasn't at all. Still, I really enjoyed my pour and look forward to trying another.
