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.

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.

Mora2000 (5856) - McKinney, Texas, USA - SEP 12, 2013
On tap at Untapped fest. Orange pour with a white head. The aroma and flavor are both dominated by hops. I get some wonderful grapefruit notes as well as a hint of pine. There is also some biscuit malt notes that keep the bitterness from being too hight. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Nice pale ale.
