Suburbia gets a bad rap. Without Suburbia, so many of us wouldn’t have the teenage culture or common unifying experiences that gave us something to rebel against. Brewed with late addition hops, and just enough malt to provide a smooth, bready body, Genius of Suburbia ISA is a quirky suburban brew that still makes a statement against brewing conformity.

draught@Erzbierschof - quite clear dark blond beer under a solid long lasting white foam, nice lace; resiney hoppiness with notes of pears and quinces; thin-bodied, solid but subtle carbonation; quite bitter; short and dry fruity hoppy finish of quinces and pines

Can from the LCBO. Clear and bright light gold with a small white head. Aroma and flavour both have a nice balance of honey cracker malt and fresh citrus bitterness. Crisp and light body. Nothing new, just a solid and sessionable hop-forward pale ale, which is fine by me.

Gluepot (450) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 20, 2016
A decent refreshing quaff, but I just have difficulty giving most session IPAs really high marks. A nice spritzy hop profile in the nose, leading with lemon and orange. The body is a dead clear light straw colour with a pretty standard well-laced white head. A nice refreshing taste with some fresh fruitiness. Again, lemon and orange lead the way with a touch of pineapple and mild, sweet, slightly biscuit malt. Body is a bit thin but the hops persist pretty well for a session ale.

bunget (854) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 19, 2016
Can. Clear yellow body, medium white head with average retention and lots of lacing. Aroma of sweet cereal, a touch of citrus, herbs and corn. Taste of cereal, not the most pleasant bitter herbs, sugar, cardboard and metallic notes. Subpar.

tricksta_p (3608) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - SEP 17, 2016
Bottle at home. Aroma is crisp fruity hops, tropical fruits, grapefruit, citrus, light biscuity malt. Flavour is moderate to medium bitter. Body is light. Thinnish but quite crisp and refreshing with plenty of aromatic fruity hops, goes down well.

GoufCustom (1649) - HONG KONG - SEP 15, 2016

355 ml bottle bought at YATA in MOKO, Mong Kok.

Looks: Clear light golden colour with a thin trace of misty yeast particles; Half finger head and soapy white foam which fades in 30 seconds; Excellent sticky lacing with quite fizzy small carbonation.

Aroma: Fragrant and fresh Ale malt, with pineapples, light grapefruits, strong floral nectar, pine, lemon and grass.

Taste: Near zero sweet light Ale malt, with light grapefruits, light floral, dry biscuits, thin pine, lemon, fairly bitter hops and grass.

Body: Mid to light body. Very slick palate.

Mouth Feel: Light Ale maltyness in a thick and smooth background. Very dry with almost no sweetness but also a bit empty besides the amber-ish Melanoidin and bitter grapefruits. Pine is short with lemon to round. Fairly good!

Hoppiness: Pineapples, light grapefruits, strong floral nectar, pine, lemon and grass in nose. Light grapefruits, light floral, thin pine, lemon and grass in taste; Bitterness is quite strong for a lasting, mid to high astringent lemony finish.

After Taste: Dry. Light citrusy and quite bitter to mouth.

Comments: This one is maybe too to-the-style, where the aroma is quite pinpoint perfect with fruity floral sweetness. Taste is a bit thin on malt as well as low grapefruit sensation. Smooth and thick body otherwise, it would be nicer if the malt can be up a little. Easy and okay.

SlovakSniper (5130) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 22, 2016
Blonde qui exhibe des parfums discrets teintés par les agrumes et par les fleurs. La base malté est définitivement embarquée sur les houblons. Le goût montre une amertume verte et piquante. J’ai beaucoup de difficulté à découvrir d’autres saveurs. La bouche est bien pétillante et même huileuse. La finale est gazonnée et résineuse. Bouteille achetée à la SAQ.

kevinsenn (2014) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 21, 2016
Can from lcbo. Spicy aroma with light resin and lemon notes. Lemon and spice in the taste. A bit of a crisp lager finish that makes me surprised it’s an ale. Not too bad!

Can @ LCBO, they had it catagorized as a "Wheat" idiots but more on that later. I got over it. This is really very tasty beer and @ 3.8 abv extremely good. Some days a beer that is just tasty after a day of mind numbing borefest is the ticket. Highly recommended.
