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.

Me thinks me expected something totally different but me thinks me glad this wasn’t what was ’expected’. Heavy grass dump into the air during the pour and a hint that maybe this is off - that was mainly due to my steadfast mindset of a beastly APA. In a way it kind of reminds me of a weak ass BIPA - reminds - not ’is’. It’s got a bit of weed stank to it, bit of fruity citrus... is this a pilsner? I think it’s a pil. Flaves - dry dry dry, bit of grass, loaf, lemon sourness. If I want a pil I’ll buy this instead.

Heldere gouden kleur met een volle kraag. Ruikt fruitig, hop, pils. Smaakt fruitig, pils, orange.

UXO (999) - CANADA - AUG 29, 2015
Appearance: hazy pale straw with one fat finger of rocky white head, good retention and lacing. (4/5) Aroma: citrus, herbal, resin, doughy yeast and pale malt. (6/10) Taste: moderate sweet, mild bitter. (6/10) Palate: light to medium body, moderate carbonation, medium duration mildly bitter finish. (3/5) A mild-natured APA. Nothing too challenging, but easy-drinking and refreshing. I assume the name and the “herbal” description is supposed to underscore some dank west-coast character comparable to pot, but I honestly don’t get any of that. (13/20)

Pale hazy yellow with white head. Bitter but that’s about it, with no actual flavor to make it interesting.

500ml brown bottle. Pale yellow with haze. Big white head. Aroma - grassy, lemony. Taste is grainy, grass and mild citrus. Finish is grainy and dry with light hops. Regular body and carbonation. A bit dull.

tricksta_p (2409) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUL 24, 2015
Aroma of soft malt, hay, floral notes, fruits, some citrus, herbal notes, hops. Flavour is light to moderate sweet with a moderate bitter finish. Not a stellar hop bomb APA, more like a hoppy Pilsner.

patricks110 (2228) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 24, 2015
Disappointed by this brew. Expected alot more oomph and dry hop emphasis but found it lackluster. The pour is light copper gold with a thin off white head. Mild spice and citrus nose, light grainy malts. Boring!

MunBro (886) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 17, 2015
Clear, light (almost straw) yellow pour, nice foamy head but not much lacing. Aroma is basically just of bread maybe some hops. Flavour is very herbal which I am not a big fan of honestly, but also has some nice hop flavours.
