Pioneer is a rotator of new never-brewed-before recipes. The first one, Yellow Rose, is a single malt / single hop concoction using a caboodle (technical term for a large amount of malt) of Weyermann Pilsener 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. Mosaic was used for bittering, flavoring, and aroma in the kettle; it was also massively dry hopped. We are quite pleased with the beer. A chalk-white head with a very clean malt backbone, as one would expect from German pilsener malt. The hops impart strong grapefuit and blueberry flavor and aroma. Quite an interesting brew!

Not sure I understand the cult following of this beer. Itís just your run of the mill good Pale/IPA, but anyway... Smell is clean and hoppy and nice. Taste is light bitterness and more hops in the flavor. Fair amount of sweetness. Light carbonation. Very sessionable.

Canít believe I forgot to rate this one the past several months. It has become my favorite session IPA in the Houston area and I seek it out intentionally. The single-hopped approach with Mosaic is what this IPA lover has sought in an almost perfect blend. Itís a citrus bomb with a whole lotta dank, and a clean, balanced merging of the malt. All grapefruit and berry to me, with a lot of resin. The closest thing in flavor, to me, is Founders All Day IPA, except that I prefer Yellow Rose for the 6.5%! Damn near perfect for my tastes. What will these folks be doing once they quit their day jobs and go full-time?? I canít wait to see.

Cloudy yellow. Holds a white head. Smooth. Bitter sweet cold hoppiness. Some corn meal in the finish. Still good though.

Draft. Aroma is hoppy and almost berry. Appearance is a clear gold with a foamy, white top. Taste is a hop dank that starts sweet. Very interesting. Palate is a light hop bitter. Overall, a great beer. Would buy again fo sho. This beer makes me wonder how they can make a beer this good when their ipa is so bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hay Merchant, Houston tap: Pours golden with a wwhite head. Aroma is a combination of citrus, resin, flowers, and overall very wet. Other people say dank, and I would not disagree. The bitterness hits you well without having the beer lose any of its nice flavorful hop characteristics. Better than the other APA of theirs I had.

Pours a hazy golden orange with a thick white head. Aroma of grapefruit and grain. Taste is sweet malt bitter grapefruit. Very cool play between the sweetness of the malt and the bitter citrus.
