Availability: Year-round

Notes/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

3.59/5  rDev -1.4%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - crystal clear yellow, mild head, quickly dissipating
S - lemony citrus, fresh spring air
T - sweet upfront, light barnyard, citrus, with some weak floral undertones. Clean aftertaste.
M - moist, smooth, refreshing

Overall, I was underwhelmed. It was enjoyable, and definitely a solid session beer, and the whole is surely greater than the sum of the parts. That being said, I can't point to any individual stellar aspects of this beer.

Serving type: on-tap

On tap at the tap house. Light for a hoppy production from double mountain but tasty and complete despite not being a knock you on your socks affair. I would grab another. The on tap version is definitely a little crisper and fresher than the bottled edition.

A: yellow. Crystal clear. Medium, foamy head. A lot of bubbles rising.
S: very mild women's hair permanent chemical. Nothing else.
T: lemony up front. Lightly malted. Light on the bittering hops.
M: medium carbonation. Medium body.
O: meh. Taste is okay. Aroma ruins it. There is not much at all there, except for a faint chemical smell.

I bought a bottle of The Vaporizer in a bottle shop. 1 pint .09 ounces, poured in to a pint glass.

Pours a bright yellow color, clear with a slight chill haze. The head is stark white, thick, creamy and resiliant. Many bubbles are rising in the glass.

The smell in a acerbic hoppy scent. Smells like juniper and dandelions.

Taste is a bitter pilsner type flavor. The taste reminds me of the way macro lagers used to taste when I was very young. A dry bitter biting grain flavor.

Mouthfeel is crisp and clean, but with a bitter dry character.

Overall I would probably pass on this one if it came around again. It's a pale ale but it tastes a lot like a pilsner, which is not one of my favorite styes. It's interesting, but I would probably not have it again.
