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.

DuffMan (8000) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 27, 2014
Bottle, shared by TylerDurden. Very hazy bright orange, thick light golden head. Big pine and citrus rind hop flavours, sweet caramel malts in terrific balance, big flavours, long bitterness, excellent!

mcberko (9355) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 13, 2014
650mL bottle, sent from wilco (thanks a lot, Mike), pours a cloudy dark orange with a large white head. Aroma brings out loads of piney hops, a little citrus zest, and some crisp crackery malt - loads of pine though. Flavour brings out a huge wallop of intensely bitter piney hops - oh man is this piney and hoppy. Super dry, fairly astringent, but super drinkable. Excellent IPA.

CRock (108) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 11, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 15, 2014 Drank straight from the can the first time so didn?t real get the full experience. Second time out of a glass - looked great with a head that disappears quickly. Really solid IPA.

HippyHop (450) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 28, 2014
You can smell this beer from across the room before you’ve even finished pouring it. Lots of pine, grapefruit rind, orange, caramel. Taste is pure hop bomb. The first sip was overwhelming, the second and third slightly less so. Thereafter the flavours start to pop all over. Lots of grapefruit and orange, and some bright tropical fruit in the background, with a bit of caramel from the malt. Finish is bitter, resinous pine, very dry. Great beer.

Draught at Thirst and Miserable (among other places). Hazy orange with a small white ring of head. Smells of orange and resiny hops. Tastes pretty heavy with a nice dollop of hops. Very bitter. It’s readily available and I won’t turn one down. 2014-07-06

Karol (718) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUL 4, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 25, 2015 Beer revisited after one year. Original rating 2.8 Can bought at the LCBO. Pours golden orange color with a soapy white head. Fantastic aroma of pine, malt and floral hops. Taste is a balance of malt, pine and medium bitter hops with a pleasant bitter hops long aftertaste. Medium carbonation. Alcohol in the background. High drinkability!

650ml bottle. Pours a very hazy orange colour. Fairly thick white head that settles down nicely, leaving moderate lacing as drunk. Aromas are very piney hops, with hints of caramel. Tastes of citrus, pine, pineapple, and toffee. Overall, this IPA could go toe-to-toe with many of my favourites in the category, and might upset a few.
