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

From bottle. Light yellow in color. Has a grassy aroma. The flavor is of citrus and grass hop. A little prickly and dry in the finish.

UXO (871) - 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 (2099) - 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 (2128) - 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 (830) - 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.

Sampled at the brewpub. Nicely hopped. Not over done. Floral with a lot of subtlety. Some pine. Really nicely done. Subtle and flavorful. Nice combination.
