COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
THE VAPORIZER is a golden-hued Pale Ale that features a beautifully hoppy aroma and flavor. The malt is 100% Gambrinus Pilsner, our sweet and supple house malt from Gambrinus Malting in British Columbia. The hops are primarily of the Challenger variety, grown on a single farm in the Yakima Valley. We dry-hop THE VAPORIZER to pump up the hoppy goodness. It’s an appetizingly dry, clean and pure-tasting take on a hoppy Pale Ale. Brewed with Gambrinus Pilsner malt and Challenger hops. 6% ABV, 50 BU

Douberd (3073) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - APR 24, 2015
(Double Mountain The Vaporizer) Bottle 500 ml at home, served into a shaker, ABV 6% Pale yellow colour on the body, a bit cloudy. Two fingers of white thick head on top, with very good retention. Spots of lacig left around the glass. Aroma has light hops, something off though here, like cigarette ash or burned paper. Not much going on taste-wise, light lemon, some grass, hints of hops. Good bitterness on the finish and the aftertaste though. Medium thin body, good carbonation. Mildly dry on the palate. Nothing special.

Benzai (9800) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - APR 9, 2015
Bottle @ weekly tasting shared with Dutchdrebus and Thompson. Hazy pale yellow golden color, full sized white head that lasts for quite a while. Aroma is lightly malts, some hops but also a bit sweaty. Taste lightly malts, lightly hops, hayish, only a hint of bitter. Average body and carbonation. Drinkable but not very good imo.

Bulk_Carrier (2587) - Temporarily, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 12, 2015
This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a soft golden yellow color with a nice transparency about it allowing some light carbonation to be seen rising to fill a one finger white foamy head that dissipated in a nice rocky sort of way. Thick messy lacing stuck to the glass nicely. The smell had a dry piney to speckled sprucy citrus, fresh and bright thorough and a light grassiness. The taste was sweet and tried to a balance a dry sort of bitterness which actually came out more in the finish. The aftertaste was sticky sweet. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionable aspect to it. The carbonation seemed to be a bit smoother than other APA’s, still good. Overall, I say this was a wonderful APA. The dry hopping did this beer well.
