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

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.

Salmoniform (1138) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - FEB 27, 2015
Poured from tap to glass. Straw hue with creamy white head that lingered. Aroma is grass, pine, hay, resin. Mouthfeel is nice with a light body DNS crisp carbonation. Taste is dry with a nice hop Bitterness following. Overall this is a decent brew.

greenhorn1 (850) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - FEB 15, 2015
Bottle. Pours clear light yellow. Doesn’t taste like a traditional pale ale, but more like a light pilsner. There is a slight bitterness. Very light mouthfeel, and watered down,

vyvvy (4398) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - FEB 9, 2015
On tap at the brewery - Pours hazy pale yellow with a white head. The aroma has doughy pils malt, spicy hops and herbs. It has a medium smooth body with soft carbonation. The flavor starts off with nice semi-dry pils malt, spice, herbs and some citrus. The finish dries out a bit and has tangerine and pepper. Solid pale ale.

Poolieo (10) - Washington, USA - FEB 8, 2015
The label says Pale Ale but what it really is, is a hopped Pilsner. If you review it based on that it would be much higher. It's a great light flavor compromise for a Hop Head. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lagerboy (1419) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 18, 2015
500 ml bottle. Unclear pale yellow, big white lasting froth. Citrusy yeasty floral aroma and taste, thin lean malt, some spice, herbs and grass. Average carbonation, lighter bodied, moderately hopped. Reminiscent of a poorer Belgian blond. Kinda. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

KyotoLefty (6909) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 26, 2014
Bottle at Imazato. Pale gold with lace and floaties. Funky wheat, yeast in the nose. Bready, lemony flavor, rather yeast. Not impressed.

jsnicholas (302) - Woodinville, Washington, USA - DEC 11, 2014
Bottle (500ml $4): Very pale yellow. small head. Cloudy. A little bit of a metallic taste, but generally an OK pale ale.

Bartzilla (556) - La Mesa, California, USA - NOV 27, 2014
Not what I was expecting. Like a pale lager or something. It is the color of Mello Yello. Smells like grains. No head, tiny bit of lacing. Tastes alright. A little fruity and "zingy". That’s a new term I just made up. Go ahead and use that in your reviews. Not awful, but not something I’d return to, though I wouldn’t turn it down if given to me. I hope that makes sense. Right, then.

hapjydeuce (961) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 6, 2014
Bottled. Toasted gold color with medium carbonation and low head. Aroma is cereal, dry hay, hops, apple and pilsner malt. Flavor is mildly refreshing with some lemon citrus and more grainy cereal. Nice dry hop character but it can’t mask the lackluster base beer that failed to deliver. Come on dsmith4, how can you seriously give this a 5? Gross.
