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.

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.

Great use of the Mosaic Hop. Golden slightly unfiltered look, nice pineapple and floral nose, and citrus pineapple taste. Fluffy creamy white head hangs around nicely to accompany the back half of glass. So clean, so Mosaic, so pleasant of a beer! Wish I was local to this one.

Floral, pungent, sweet, graceful. Bottled on 3/20 and enjoyed on 4/2. Beautiful packaging - from the bottle shape to the artwork to the varied cap and the cardboard holder. Incredible presentation. Yellow gold pour with slight haze and a fluffy white cap. Aroma is papaya, nectarine and melon. Inviting. The taste is a cascade of citrus hops to smooth malt and a balanced bitterness. Orange rind, guava, tangerine, melon and a faint floral and honey note that surfaces late in the sip. Wow. Very complex flow of flavors. Nothing heavy handed about the hopping - a balanced beer that exhibits grace from start to finish.

Bottle shared by jc1762. Thanks Jon!

Light golden, transparent body with a white, soapy head. The aroma is unique. Sweet breads, malt, hops, honey, flowers. A hoppy beer for sure. Yet, the malt presence can not be ignored. Normally, I find this as a deterrent. However, the malty sweetness, floral notes, and hoppy character complement one another so well. A terrifically balanced, highly drinkable, intriguing beer. Great stuff.

opaque bronze colors ale with an eggshell head. beautiful mosaic nose with elements of guava and pink grapefruit flesh, plus whole grain cracker. flash of something buttery (diacetyl?) on the first taste took away a little from the flavor, but the resurgence of the hop aromas on the tongue kept me interested. medium bitterness at the back end, and average to lower co2 overall.
