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.

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.

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.

50 cL bottle. Pours hazy yellow, small white head. Aroma is mild herbal and grassy, peach hoppy. Bitter, smooth fruity and crisp hoppy. Dry, bitter and smooth citrus hoppy finish.

$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.

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 (635) - 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.
