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.

Pint at world of beers Houston. Pours a hazy yellow colour. Aroma is big fruity hops. Think tropical fruit. Taste is pretty much the same big tropical fruit notes. All in all a fantastic beer. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

UPDATED: NOV 8, 2014 First rater! Draft at Mellow Mushroom Spring TX. Pours light gold and slightly hazy. Mild citrus nose. Nice flavors of citrus and a mild malt backbone. Lighter body and flavoring but this is a well done ipa. Great for the Houston summers. Coming on strong.

On tap at Flying Saucer Sugar Land. Pours a clean, clear amber with a white head. Nose is of potent citrus, especially grapefruit. Taste is if citrus and sweet malt. Mouthfeel is medium with bitter bite, but not overpowering. Balanced well. Love this IPA! One of my top 5 IPAs. Will buy often.

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.

Pours hazy yellow with large tan head out of bottle. Amazing aroma of grapefruit, flowers, and tropical fruit. Flavor matching smell. Very smooth for an ipa. One of the best in my opinion. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap @ Untapped Fest. Bright golden pour with a fluffy white head. Smells great - grapefruit, pine, tropical fruits. A bit surprised this is a single hop brew as itís quite complex. Slight bitter finish.
