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.

The flavor is pretty green and intense. Lots of citrus zest and tropical fruit. Nice coconut, some garlic, watermelon, and green onion. Crazy fragrant and dank. Solid.

Capped 750 mL bottle thanks to Secret Santa Summer 2015! Hazy straw yellow, large foamy white head, decent retention. Aroma of mango, pineapple, tangerine, pale malt. The taste is mango, papaya, pineapple, citrus, mild pine and resin, pale malt. Medium bodied, moderate lingering bitterness, well balanced. This is a very nice beer.

On draught at Anvil Bar & Refuge. This beer pours a clear bright gold color with a medium fluffy white head that diminishes gradually. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops and malt. Light to medium body with flavors of citrusy hops, toasted malt and pine. The finish is mildly bitter with a short herbal hops aftertaste. Decent overall.
