Style: American Pale Ale (APA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.00%

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

Taster pour at the brewery. Very light straw and clear pour, thin head. Lots of lemon on the nose and a bit of grassy hop. Flavor follows. Tart, dry finish.

Both aroma and taste have an unpleasant generic "beery" character. Did not finish 500 mL bottle.

The appearance was a soft golden yellow color with a nice transparency about it allowing some light carbonation to be seen rising to fill a one finger white foamy head that dissipated in a nice rocky sort of way. Thick messy lacing stuck to the glass nicely. The smell had a dry piney to speckled sprucy citrus, fresh and bright thorough and a light grassiness. The taste was sweet and tried to a balance a dry sort of bitterness which actually came out more in the finish. The aftertaste was sticky sweet. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionable aspect to it. The carbonation seemed to be a bit smoother than other APA’s, still good. Overall, I say this was a wonderful APA. The dry hopping did this beer well.

Very light golden color with a thin, quickly disappearing head. Not any lacing to note. Very light aroma of malt, grain, and lemon. The flavor is rather dull, almost like a Pilsner with little character. Watery mouthfeel and a tart aftertaste. Not a beer I'd drink again.

500 ml bottle - bottled on 07/14/16:

Pours clear light straw yellow with a thin white head. Some trailing lace slides down the glass leaving little lacing.

The smell is of lemongrass (smells like a pilsner with some ale yeast esters. Herbal.

The taste is lemongrass/general herbal/floral notes. Herbal dryness mixes with malty sweetness. Dry finish.

Light-bodied. Not too thin. Carbonation level works well here.

Overall it's a pale ale with pilsner characteristics. A unique pale ale.

Paid just under $5 at Fred Meyer's in Bremerton, WA.
