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.

jdjuice (502) - Kumamoto, JAPAN - DEC 10, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 10, 2017 Tap at brewery. Aroma is delicately floral and fruity without being juicy. Almost like a perfume. Very light maltiness, high attenuation, dry with champagne-like flavor accents from hops.

Retro.
Bottle pours hazy gold w big tan head. Pineapple and orange peel on the nose, pretty big. Flavor is a bit more mellow, and the body just a touch overcarbed and light. Very good pale ale overall.

(En fût au Three Penny Taproom): Des zestes d'orange amère, un caramel léger mais collant et une feuille de menthe pour clore le tout.

On tap at brewery. Pours gold with a small off-white head. Aroma is tangerine and a tiny bit of grass. Taste is tangerine, orange, some pine, and a little nectarine. Lightly bitter. Light-medium body. Medium+ carbonation. Clean mouthfeel. Enjoyable but very simple and immediately forgettable.

Clear golden pour. Aroma is very dank along with some grapefruit notes. Taste is citrusy, grape & a hint of anise. Medium bodied. Very much hop forward.

pours unclear golden-orange with a very nice off-white head offering good retention and lacing. fresh pine sap, citrus zest, berry fruitiness, melon and strawberry candies, no particular sweetness, very lightly toasted biscuits, clean fruity yeast action. moderate carbonation, light body - oily; balanced grassy-spicy-citrusy finish. a surprising el dorado that mimicks C hop varietals - and perhaps the only iteration in which this particular hop varietal proves to be more than ok, even notwithstanding its kewl name.

2015-09-25 Bouteille. Apparence orangée et voilée. Arôme agrumes, fruits tropicaux et floral. En bouche, amertume suivi de fruits tropicaux et agrumes. Résineuse et un léger support de malt croquant. Finale sèche avec une moyenne amertume et note floral. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft. Not much aroma. Copper color. Booming flavors of nectarine and tangerine with a little bit of Earth and a hint of bread crust at the end. A wow. Rating lessened by the aroma.

Ahh, Maine Beer Co., even when not at your best, you are still pretty good. This one pours a nice standard darker yellow with a thin head. The aroma is an almost sweet mound of malt with some brisk peppery spice. The taste is a sprightly dance on the tongue of clean berries and fresh zingy hops. Good for kicking off a long trivia night with your boo boo and sending them off to bed after watching the first 38:29 of the Last Action Hero and pausing right at the beginning of the Blockbuster video scene.
