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.

Maine Beer Company - A Tiny Beautiful Something, poured into a Fiddlehead snifter.

Look - Pours an orange straw hazy with a beautiful foamy head. Retains very well. Perfect lacing. This is a 5/5 here.

Smell - Mango/pineapple from the El Dorado hops, what an amazing aroma! Malts are subtle in the background, lower ABV pales tend to be the best at showcasing hops.

Taste - Taste is crisp and fresh. Hoppy tropical with a nice pineapple linger.

Mouthfeel - Light-medium bodied with zippy carbonation. Not boozy at all. Great drinkability. Remarkably sessionable. A+ here as well.

Overall - Another phenomenal MBC brew. Truly Maine's Hill Farmstead.
