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

Pale gold with a good frothy top. Good retention and lace. Grassy hop aroma over light malt. Light bitter, pilsner malt flavor. Light body, soft carbonation, light oily texture, and a nice, dry bitter finish. Definitely not an IPA. Barely a Pale Ale. I’d call this a hoppy Blond Ale, and a good one.

On tap at Rose and Thistle. Pours a pale golden color with a pilsner smell. Tastes like a bitter pilsner. Not really my favorite and it isn’t really a great fall beer.

500 mL bottle. Pours fairly light yellow w/ a bit of foam. Piney, bitter, yet clean hops. Very clean, subtle malt profile as well. Would’ve liked a stronger malt backbone to support the hops, but that’s just me. Not too crazy about the the all-Pilsner malt.

Really unique. Brewed with only pilsner malt and challenger hops. Nicely hopped and showcased, the malt stands up to the hop well, different.

Hazy yellow. Doesn't smell or taste like much, but there's some hops in there. Try dry hopping a bit more for something named vaporizer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Super pale yellow. Looks like a heady coors light. Actually sort of smells like it, too. A bit of hops in the flavor, which develops this into a decent brew... fresher than the aroma lets on. Still very "meh."

On tap. Crisp and smooth. Mild citrus and mild bitterness. Nice malt flavor towards the finish. Good tasting brew but not much of an IPA punch. Would rate this higher as an APA.
