Vancouver Island Brewery - Sabotage ISA Review

Vancouver Island Brewery – Sabotage India Session Ale Review

Vancouver Island Brewery has joined the ranks of ISA brewers with the Sabotage. This India Session Ale comes in at a 5% ABV which is typical for a BC-brewed ISA but on the big side for the style. The Sabotage pours a golden-amber colour topped with two fingers of loosely packed, lacing head. Through this head comes a balance of malt and hops in a northwest style package. The hops are a true north-west style with pine notes, citrus and a touch of mango. The beer smells bigger than a typical ISA but is none-the-less quite enchanting. The flavour is rather light on the tongue with a malt forward base leading up to a well hopped, citrus mid-section and finish. The northwest style hops build at the end leaving a dry and bitter finish. The Sabotage ISA is higher on the IBUs than you may expect for and ISA and has a relatively thin body. If you are a hop-head that is looking for something a little lighter for the summer ahead the Sabotage from Vancouver Island Brewery may just be what the doctor prescribed.
