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.

$7.49 bottle from Beer Run. Pours golden with a small off-white head. Nice juicy citrus aroma, including fresh orange, floral hops, light tropical fruit. Flavor is bittersweet orange rind, perhaps some candied orange, pine, minor tropical fruit juice. Good, but missing something to make it excellent.

Most recently on draught at Roxy’s A4cade, 3/3/17, though I’ve had it a number of times in bottles, since debut.
Minimally hazy, flaxen-golden with light copper hints and a large, well-retained white head.
Grassy, floral and almost heathery hops in the nose provide light lemon, hints of sweat and pepper, as well as juicy apple and nectarine. On the end, light grapefruit and pine linger, threatening to intensify and destroy the levity, but they never really do, thanks in some part to the honey-like malts that seem quite deep from the nose.
In the mouth it’s richly malty and dry with a lively, light floral and grassy hop bouquet that transitions in to juicier yellow fruits and finally ends with some bitter grapefruit and resin. Pepper lingers, as well as strong honey, vanilla and sourdough. Tight carbonation with no alcohol or flaw. I’d like them to get rid of the pine/grapefruit aspect altogether, but nevertheless this is still very drinkable and well-done.

Concealer (1246) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 4, 2017
Bottle. Thanks HaroFever. Hazy bright gold with a thick, foamy, off white head that lasts and laces. Aromas of mango, pineapple, biscuit,grass, lemon, light pine, pear, and oat. Flavor is mango, lemon zest, biscuit, oat, pine, and light floral notes. Medium bodied, soft and smooth with a dry finish.

Jabic (586) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - MAR 31, 2017
Ar: Bright and spicy, with big aroma of lemon, pine, and grass; hints of tart orange and clean biscuit. Ap: Light gold and slightly hazy; large white head with great retention, leaving a soapy cap of foam with web-like, chunky lacing along the glass sides. T: Clean lemon, lime, and grapefruit rind; very pale malt flavor, actually quite bland; medium-high bitterness, fairly clean; there is a bright hit of hops up front, but the beer cleans out and tastes like seltzer as it comes to a rapid finish. P: Light body with very high carbonation, finish is dry. O: This beer promises a lot in the nose, having a wonderful aroma, and right up front; however, the beer comes off as so clean and finishes so quickly that it seems almost like mineral water.

Pours a clear gold with white head. A floral hop and citrus aroma. A watered down taste of floral and citrus hops with some grains. A light bitter hoo and grainy aftertaste.

tmoreau (4365) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - FEB 11, 2017
On tap at Poor Phil’s in Oak Park, IL. and dispensed to fluted stemware showing a clear, golden color, with a sudsy layer of persistent, white foam, and spots & patches of lacing. The nose was lightly floral, citrusy lemon, orange, & grapefruit, amped in intensity by their zesty skins, with a touch of fruity sweetness. Medium bodied, with decent carbonation, the taste was similar notes as the aroma, lingering citrus & rind-like bitterness, clean & fresh, with a crisply dry finish.

Palme (4811) - 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 there’s a really hop yeasty aroma coming from this. Reminds me of trub that I get in some of my homebrewed IPAs. There’s 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 it’s 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.
