Style: American Pale Ale (APA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.50%

Availability: Rotating

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.

This was the most perfect Pale Ale I have ever had. It was like I was drinking ambrosia, the smell of El Dorado hops wending their way through my nostrils as I sipped on the beer.

Bottled 9/11. Medium orange color, fluffy off-white head that fades away leaving a thick rim of foam around the glass with a thin and consistent layer of suds on the surface. A pleasantly sweet nose with notes of citrus, pineapple and tart passion fruit. Taste is more floral forward than the nose but it is also balanced with notes of sweet citrus, pine, and grapefruit rind. Very soft mouthfeel, perfect carbonation, smooth finish. A very well-made and delicious beer. On the pricey side at $7.99 for the bottle but would definitely treat myself again.

Bright golden yellow body, minimal white head. Nose is pine and a bit of lemon. The flavor is primarily fruit, floral notes. Brisk and clean. A rock solid Pale.

Hazy orange color with a thick head with great retention.
Aroma with notes of sweet oranges, pineapples, herbal resin and a bit of cantaloupe.
Flavor with notes of pine, ginger, lemongrass, oats, melon, white bread, some resin and flowers. Dry aftertaste with a rounded bitterness. It feels lower than its 45 IBUs.
Bordering medium body with velvety carbonation.
They know how to craft an APA perfectly without appealing to exoticism or extremes.
