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.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

06/10/14 bottling date, almost a month old.

A: Pours a slightly hazy amber with a tall, fizzy and frothy offwhite head. Head fades slowly and leaves a nice island behind with lots of fluffy tendrils of lacing. Good retention.

S: That is a nice hit of citrus. Orange peel? Reminds me of Fast Orange (the hand cleaner). Lots of sweet orange in there too. Honestly it's not far from orange juice itself. Juicy as hell.

T: More of the same. Bitter orange peel followed by awesome juicy orange flesh. Pretty remarkable. I had to check to make sure there weren't seeds in the glass too. Crisp, dry bready malt, just a little. Drying bitter orange peel in the aftertaste.

M: Medium bodied, quite dry.

O: Orange juice APA? Very unique single hop. Clean, refreshing and tasty, I really enjoyed this simple yet flavorful brew.

Serving type: bottle
