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.

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.

Best IPA to come out of Houston. Bold words- I know! lol this brew is fantastic and perfectly comfortable in its cozy nook of classic simplicity. Pours a hazy orange with decent head; lacing is on point. On the nose, floral resin is really all you get. Depending on who you ask, its really all you need! One can detect a mild yet very much consistent floral/hop aroma followed by crisp notes of delicate flower/pine notes and juicy citrus throughout. Has just enough malt structure to support its better half. Clean finish with just enough punch and linger to leave one begging for more. Folks, this is truly a special beer in that she’s very sessionable. In theory, one could enjoy Yellow Rose on a daily. But then you loose that special, special-ness about her. She is a treat in my book and I treat that with respect. ;) Cheers!!

Yellow Rose is one of the best IPA available. For one thing it uses a proprietary yeast to brew. Brewmaster Blake told me it took four years to develop. This is a welcome change in a sea of IPAs that all taste alike because they use the same yeast. Lone pint cannot keep up the demand and this beer remains very hard to get. Kegs are restricted by the distributor to bars only.

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; I’ve 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.

UPDATED: MAR 19, 2015 Straight white head, nice lacing. Orange, grapefruit, sweet mango, pineapple, biscuit, blueberry, bready malt notes. Nice coating of bitterness in the mouth. Very clean, very refeahing and super drinkable. Dry finish. This is really good IPA. I?m a fan.
