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.

One of the best ipas ive had in years, love that it comes unfiltered in a 750 ml, proper. Didnt realize it was a single hop masaic until i read the deScription here. Had it on tap several times and recently traded for bottles, solid 5 for me.

This is an amazing Smash IPA. The mosaic hop is brilliantly used in it. The balanced flavor of malt versus hop makes this very smooth and easily drinkable. Pours a golden color with a huge amount of fluffy head that laces the glass all the way down. The smell is floral and citrus with a bitter undertone that barely makes an appearance in the taste. If you get a chance to have this beer grab it.

This has been my favorite beer since I moved to Texas. In my opinion, this should be the beer for The Republic of Texas, not that Lone Star swill!

One of the best IPAs in the world; Iíve had hundreds of them. Very bright citrus flavor, very smooth and not overly bitter. If you love a smooth, fruity, clean and pleasant IPA, this is for you.

Finally, Houston, and Texas in general, have a IPA to be proud of. No better beer to crush on a 100 degree day than Yellow Rose.

On tap at Whip In, Austin. Pours a hazy golden with a small white head. Dry with some sweetness. Lots of floral and fruity hops aromas. Medium bodied. Medium carbonation. Dry and hoppy finish. A perfect hops profile.

Growler. Pours a clear orange with medium off white head that lasts. The aroma is strong mosaic hop and grapefruit. Medium mouth with strong mosaic and pineapple, juicy, light bitterness, really enjoyed this one.

Bottle. Pours an incandescently deep colored gold with a high, lacy, sticky, mashed-potato white head. Nose is spruce, lemon, ruby-red grapefruit, stone fruit, and turbinado sugar -- amazing. On the tongue, itís a wild, magnificent variety of flavors; pine, apricot, hard cheese, nuts, herbs. One of the most food-like IPAs Iíve ever had, this is substantial and giving. Finish is long and herbal, with more nut and cheese elements. Amazing.
