Notes/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.

My first beer from Maine beer company and hopefully I will get my hands on many more. One of the best pale ales I've had. Easy drinking beer. Would be a great beer to sit next to a pool and drink all day. Will definitely get more of this if I'm able to.

Pours orange with a little haze. Very nice white head that lasts pretty well.

The smell of sweet citrus is prominent and very clean. Of all the citrus fruit, pineapple come out of the gates strong. Right away makes you excited for the beer.

The taste is delicious. I love when a beer matches the smell and the taste is clean and hits you with a pineapple presence. The back half remains clean, and your easily ready for more.

Very smooth, clean, and crisp. Maine keeps churning out very impressive beers. One of very few top notch east coast breweries, but quickly become one of the best in the country. Great work on this beer. Side note, having this beer aug 1, 2014, with a bottle date of feb 2014 label date. So I would have to imagine this beer is even better closer to label date.
