COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Palme (4329) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 6, 2017
0.5l bottle @ Hotel Room. This is a mild cloudy golden colored one with a nice big lasting and lacing white head on the top. Immediately theres a really hop yeasty aroma coming from this. Reminds me of trub that I get in some of my homebrewed IPAs. Theres lots of nice hoppy elements, super fresh. Mild citrus and ripe tropical fruits. Tastes superb also. A bit thinner than oily in the mouth and its average on the relatively bug bubbles. Really grassy fresh in the taste. Instantly I get that this is something you can drink lots of. Cucumber, lime zest and traces of red berries. Really nice and quenching. 11.06.2015

Bottle to tulip. Poured a glowing cloudy orange. Lasting fine white head. Nose is citrus zest, little floral. Palate is clean, light, orange rind. Juicy mouth feel, but not overly sweet at all. Nice balance from the oats. Yummy.

brokensail (16222) - Dublin, California, USA - NOV 25, 2016
On tap @ Portland Lobster Co. Hazed golden orange beer with a white head. This ended up being a favorite of the trip. Lots of passion fruit, grapefruit zest, melon, and orange juice. Maybe finishes a touch heavy on the pine and pith bitterness. But otherwise, this is a really fruit forward beer. Has enough of a malt flavor and body to it. Mild sweetness. Really good.

Draught @ Milk and Hops - Chelsea. Hazy bright orange with creamy off-white head, light orange peel aroma, medium carbonation, smooth body, medium bitter citrus peel taste with flowery hops, medium bitter finish. Very very smooth and flavorful.

Boutip (6084) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 26, 2016
Bottle: Poured a yellow color ale with a large white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of fresh grapefruit juice is quite astonishing with some citrusy and tropical fruit notes. Taste is also highly reminiscent of mango and grapefruit with some residual sugar notes and limited bitterness and tons of floral notes. Body is full enough for style with good carbonation. Fantastic beer and wish the grapefruit notes could be so dominant in many more APA.

LouisP (325) - Montral, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 26, 2016
La bire est ambre, avec une grosse carbonatation dau moins deux doigts, qui reste, mme aprs quelques minutes. Au nez, les armes sont intenses, avec les mangues et les pches qui dominent. En bouche, le got trs floral et herbac me surprend, en comparaison avec les armes ultra fruites. La Tiny est super douce, avec presque aucune amertume, et cette douceur se transforme presque en manque de corps tellement elle devient "easy drinking". Grosse buvabilit, fait beaucoup la job.

bavarian81 (157) - Massachusetts, USA - SEP 25, 2016
A very nice looking beer. It poured a deep, slightly cloudy golden color with a two-finger width head. It smelled of faint citrus and floral hops and some light grassy hops. Its very drinkable. It tastes like mildly bitter hops and light citrus. Its pretty good.
