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.

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, it’s a wild, magnificent variety of flavors; pine, apricot, hard cheese, nuts, herbs. One of the most food-like IPAs I’ve ever had, this is substantial and giving. Finish is long and herbal, with more nut and cheese elements. Amazing.

callmemickey (3511) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 7, 2015
Dark hazy orange body, medium to large off-white head, soapy lacing. Nose is amazing with dank mango, papaya, pineapple, grass, pine, and grapefruit. Flavor is similar, if not just a hair less pungent. Medium bodied, smooth carbonation, lively bitterness, juicy, and semi-dry throughout. One of the better IPAs I’ve had recently. The real deal.

Pours a clear bright golden color with white head. Very aromatic, citrus, and lots of it, not much pine, sweeter notes; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a bittersweet hop note.

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

Gold pour, white head. Man the fruity flavors in this beer are crazy! Lots of tropical fruit, melon, berries...not too bitter. Juicy and delicious!
