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

MadDogMD (213) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - OCT 26, 2012
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.

reebtogi (4109) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 20, 2014
500ml bottle pours a pale golden color with a finger and a half of white head that settles to leave some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is floral with some citrus and grass. Taste is a citrusy and grassy hop bitterness with a light malty sweetness. Light to medium body with modest carbonation. A decent pale ale, but not near the best from this region.

tiong (3683) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUN 7, 2014
Draught @ Blitz, Portland, OR

Pours hazy yellow with a smooth head. Aroma of lemon peel, lime juice and tartish notes. Taste is smooth, juicy and lemony with notes of lime and citrus. Finish is juicy and zesty with lime and lemon notes. A bit strange and unbalanced.

BuckeyeBoy (2649) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 21, 2014
Spring cleaning notes. Tap at pub pours out a pale straw no head. Nose is grass, light leaf hops and a touch of cereal malt. Taste is pretty lack luster with pretty weak hop notes just a little floral and citrus.

Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 25, 2014
Very pale. No head. Light clean pale malt - I like the choice of pilsner here. Has a very woody, austere sort of bitterness, finishing quick.
