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

fiulijn (16427) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 21, 2013
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Cloudy blond color with small compact head. It has some smell of stale water. Dry and weak mouthfeel; some malt flavor with accents of hay and corn; strong bitterness, maybe a bit too strong.
Tastes like a bitter Lager, not bad, but also not exciting.

Oakes (13537) - 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.

bhensonb (12452) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Bottle from Made in Oregon. Pours hazy translucent gold with a 3 finger foamy white head. Aroma is fruity with a little spiciness. Med body or better. It is very freshly hoppy, but it’s mostly earthy/pungent. But the nose continues fruity. Malt: yes. But not caramel. Light malt. This is very unusual, and extremely flavorful - but not in a hop burn way. Close, but not quite. Delicious.

bierkoning (11111) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAY 8, 2015
Bottle. Blonde. Grassy citric leavy aroma. Thinnish, but a firm grassy citric hopbitter flavor. leavy, slightly herbal. The herbalness in lingering on in the aftertaste. Nice one.

Benzai (9999) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - APR 9, 2015
Bottle @ weekly tasting shared with Dutchdrebus and Thompson. Hazy pale yellow golden color, full sized white head that lasts for quite a while. Aroma is lightly malts, some hops but also a bit sweaty. Taste lightly malts, lightly hops, hayish, only a hint of bitter. Average body and carbonation. Drinkable but not very good imo.

mcberko (9339) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 11, 2010
Sampled at GCBF ’10, pours yellow. More hoppy flavour than the India Red Ale, but with much to be desired in complexity. Drinkable.
