COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
You approach the solitary windswept pine as it sits stoically upon its tiny perch of Canadian Shield and you wonder to yourself, “Why does this beautiful tree stand alone?” Then as you step closer, in awe of its majestic splendour, a branch blows down and slaps you right across your face. Sawdust City’s Lone Pine IPA is aggressively hopped and bursting with flavours of pine and citrus, loaded with mounds of hops and balanced with a blend of 4 different malts. Like that truculent tree, each glass is like a pine bow across your face.

Big pillowy, persistent, white head. High carbonation. Fairly clear, gold. Piney, resin aroma. Flavour of pine, resin, slight onion, slight grapefruit pith. Light caramel. Dryness accentuates the firm, but pleasant bitterness.

yourilevesque (318) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 22, 2015
Bière orangée et trouble surmontée d’une collante mousse d’un blanc cassé - coquille d’oeuf. La bière porte très bien son nom car dès l’ouverture de la cannette, de forte arômes de pin ont explosé et envahi mon nez! Les parfums sont simples mais directs: résine d’épinette, aiguille de pin et sous-bois. Le saveurs sont la suite logique du nez et d’une longueur très appréciable tant le liquide est collant au fond dans l’arrière de la langue et la gorge. C’est plaisant mais le manque de complexité et de profondeur de la bière peut finir par la rendre fatigante à boire pour quiconque préfère les IPA plus légères et fruitées. Quoique le nom de la bière est à lui seul une mise en garde suffisante et efficace. J’aime beaucoup mais n’en boirais pas tous les jours.

473ml can from LCBO. Pours a hazy orange with some sediment. Very thin and foamy head, almost light and airy. Nose is citrus, pine, and fresh hops. Maybe some tropical fruit. Tastes of pine, grapefruit, and some sweeter malts. Bitterness hits you in the back of the tongue. Resinous, yet light. Hops are not quite balanced by the malts, but typical for the West Coast IPA style. A stellar brew. For sure on my top 10 IPA list. Rivals some of the IPAs from my local brewers. Would love an imperial version. Sawdust City has been turning out some amazing brews. Perhaps a summer trip to Gravenhurst is in the cards... Very well done.

Cloudy amber, some fruity character and light bitterness, with a fair bit of yeastiness.

CacheManyHose (387) - HONG KONG - JAN 4, 2015
From LCBO and drank at Ian's house in Toronto. Cloudy golden-caramel with thin watery fizzy head. Smells of juicy fruity floral hop, tangerine, Tastes of orange juice, very bitter hop, light pepper. Body is bitter and a little fizzy. Highly bitter, somewhat unbalanced. Can see how they were going for a West Coast IPA style with this.

HKdIPA (433) - HONG KONG - JAN 4, 2015
Can from LCBO at Ian's in Toronto. Slightly hazy golden-orange pour. Aroma is somehow fizzy - very orange zesty and hoppy. Good. Taste is more straight resiny orange peel hoppy, very bitter and sharp. Less malt to balance. Body is a bit on the light side. Good lighter, orangier IPA.

Franckg (440) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 23, 2014
Le nez est dominé par les houblons (pamplemousse et tangerine), pin et une touche de caramel. Le goût est savoureux. Fruits tropicaux amères et résine de pin. Les sucres prennent leur place vers la finale. L’amertume est modéré, résineuse et sèche. Une belle découverte.
