COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Initially Pioneer I: Yellow Rose, later on became a regular.

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.

wombat23 (334) - Texas, USA - APR 10, 2016
Shared 25.4 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy pale golden with a fluffy white head. Aroma is very fresh with grapefruit, citrus, and pineapple. Taste is citrus, grapefruit, funk, malt, and mildly bitter mosaic hops. More fruity than anything else. Even picking up a bit on the blueberry, though Im not sure Id have been able to identify the flavor as blueberry without having read the deScription. Quite refreshing. Lives up to the hype.

Draft 11/28/15 (Londoner-Addison)-Pours golden with a nice sized white head. Aroma of hops, malt and other fruits. Taste of the same. This light to medium bodied brew is well balanced and was a pleasant surprise.

Andrew196 (1278) - Katy, Texas, USA - MAR 23, 2016
Cloudy golden in color, frothy white head. Aroma heavy in pineapple and grapefruit. Creamy texture on the front end, yielding to a crisp bite. Citrus blends well with a smooth malt grain and fresh hops....notes of green apple.

bnokk (403) - Lee, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 9, 2016
APPEARANCE- truely yella, super cloudy with a white head that dissipates but laces well. NOSE- super fruity with a nice balance. FLAVOR- really fruity up front with some nice bitterness in the back end of the sip. NOTES- Surprised to hear this is a single malt single hop. It shows off the beauty of mosaic hop.
