(Draught) Sampled at GCBF 2010 on September 11, 2010. Yellow colour. Interesting tonic aroma melds with the scent of berry seed. Flavour is yeasty and too citrus. Lemon bomb.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask @ Parkway. Opaque, dark gold pour with a short white head leaving a medium, coarse lace. Lemon and pine fresh hop nose leading into a medium-light, citrus, tea and fresh-hop flavored body. Prolonged bitter grapefruit, peppery finish. Not a traditional American IPA. If you ’believe’ in IPA sub-categories such as dark or black IPAs, I would submit that Vaporizer is a light or blonde IPA. Interesting, but has a lot of competition as a straight IPA.

A well-hopped golden ale with a big pils-like backbone and peppery notes. Big personality for its light color. Pretty drinkable too. Stronger than I’d expected.

GCBF 2010. Hazy yellow, grassy aroma, a little sweaty. Crackery malts, grassy hops, plays out more like a pilsener than an IPA for me. Nothing stands out. Hmmmm...

Tap. Nice flowery hop aroma. Hazy pale yellow. Good grassy and citric hops on a fitting light body. Grassy retronasal. Unpretentious and pleasant sessionable brew.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled at GCBF ’10, pours yellow. More hoppy flavour than the India Red Ale, but with much to be desired in complexity. Drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sweet, body, a little bitter. Floral hops, best ice hold or the flavor gets a little off and metalic.
