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. Its an appetizingly dry, clean and pure-tasting take on a hoppy Pale Ale. Brewed with Gambrinus Pilsner malt and Challenger hops. 6% ABV, 55 BU

Last of the fresh bottles from Fred Meyer in Burien - bottled 9/12/16- consumed 11/4/16. Pours golden with foamy white head. Very big aroma of fresh-picked hops - herbs and spice. Flavors to match - a wash of hop goodness throughout against a mostly dry and very nicely textured soft tasting pilsner malt. Finishes with a bite of bitterness. A great fresh hop ale with very assertive, yet well integrated noble hop-like hop flavors. Another beautiful and quite creative offering from a little-hyped locale that I believe to be the best brewer in the PNW.

Pint sized bottle. Pours a hazy golden yellow with moderate head. Chunks of hops floating around. Aroma is a sweet yeastiness, almost like a Belgian tripel. Taste: a slightly sweet and sour malt base but with a heck of a lot of flavoring hops. Some floral hop notes, a little bit of citrus, some herbs. Low bitterness. Finish is slightly sweet malt with an earthy bitterness. This is a very complex beer, I am not certain if it should be classed as an American Pale Ale as the malt profile kind of moves it away from there... but flavouring hops in this beer are absolutely amazing... and it pairs well with the sweet/sour malt base. The bits of hop do hurt it on the appearance, although they are small enough not to be noticed or felt on the tongue. The strange aroma - Im not sure if it is from the hops, the malt, or perhaps the yeast used, but it doesnt match the taste of the hops. A very strange beer from those aspects... yet very enjoyable!

Rating #1835 -2015.07.20 - On tap @revolutionyeg. Golden amber pour with a creamy white head that bubbles away quickly. Hops very fragrant with mild citrus in the aroma. Mouthfeel is creamy, medium carbonation, and bitter hops on the finish - but not overpowering, very balanced. Delicious.

50cl bottle at home. Pale golden with a full white soapy head. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Crispy bitterness with subtle sweet tones. Citrus, malts, yeast, caramel and some herbs. Refreshing brew.

PhillyCraft (6304) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 11, 2016
Sampled at Wilco, pours lightly hazy orange gold with medium white head. Aroma and flavor is Belgian dark fruit, booze, and toasted grain. Really hot tasting for the percent but it may just be the aggressive ash grain aspect of it. Caramel malt and stick my resins. Needs balance
