a tiny beautiful something showcases a new hop variety, El Dorado. We started playing around with this hop last year. We brewed a pilot batch with this hop exclusively and one with it blended with some of our other favorite Northwest varieties. In the end, we decided that the El Dorado had such a unique and interesting character on its own, so we decided to brew it as a “single hop” pale ale. The aroma and flavor offer intense candied orange and citrus zest. A touch of flaked oats provide a rounded, silky mouthfeel. And like our other hoppy offerings, tiny was brewed to finish dry and clean.

Pours hazy yellow/orange with a small white head. Aroma is citrus and flowers. Taste follows the nose with some nice bitterness. Light body, nicely carbed, and a good mixture of floral and citrus in the taste. Maine never dissapoints.

[ Bottle dated 6/20/14 ][ 12oz ][ @home ][ $8 ][ Tulip ][ 7/29/14 ]
Standard Maine appearance, hazy amber, effervescent with huge puffy cream head, lasts forever. Dusty nose, incredible balance between soft cracker malt and hugely spicy pine, tons of soft melon, lightly sweet. Strong front profile, tons of cracker and wheat, pillowy soft and doughy. The spice is dialed down slightly, the bitterness ultra juicy and bright a la JP luciernaga and ES Bam, low acids and moderate sweetness in the grain that returns. Not as wild but just as expressive, insanely quaffable and juicy, delicate and expressive malt, bit too resinous in the long, dry finish, grains and dryness that were present in bounty at front now washed out in the watery end.

Changed (359) - Ithaca, New York, USA - AUG 2, 2014
Bottle from FLBC. I was initially ready to give this beer a poor rating; without pouring out the entire beer, it was flaccid, tasteless, disappointing. Make sure you empty the entire bottle before judging. Pours hazy orange, big fluffy white head, spotty lacing. Aroma is subtle: orange and malt. Body is fairly full for an ale, moderate carbonation, creamy finish, and buttering. Flavor is candied orange and malt, with that buttering finish. Dry, lasting orange-hop bitterness. I shouldn’t have been so quick to judge-- this beer is another awesome one from MBC.

Bottle (6/10/14) to a pint glass. Hazy light orange -yellow. Foamy white head which recedes to lacing. Grass, florals and feint tropical fruit... Those elements combine to coat and dance across the tongue with a slightly tart and bitter dry finish... Very nice!

Recieved a fresh bottle (born on date of 6/10/14) from my friend kaser. Aroma - Not a huge aroma coming from this, but only being a 5.5% ABV. Appearance - Pours a crystal clear golden color with a nice eggshell head - lots of bubbles. Taste - Very unique taste. Very light body tasting - Palate - very thin, but after pouring the rest of the bottle into the glass, it had a little more body. Overall - Not a bad ale, Pretty easy drinking.

Trade from Willrun4beer - Thanks! Man, where to start? the aroma was flowery and caramel, with a whiff of ocean breeze. Silky smoooove palate. Taste is flowery, grassy and citrus hops on a subtle caramel and toffee malt base. There is persistent hop "pop" throughout. As it warms some very subtle notes of chocolate and almonds emerge. This may not be everybody’s thing, but this was solidly in my wheelhouse. Loved it.
