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.

On tap, Imbibe, Kitchener. Yellow, medium creamy white head. Strong pine aroma - huge actually, appreciated! Taste is very dry and very bitter - as advertised! medium body holds it together well but this one is all dry piney hops - huge from start to very long bitter finish. Maybe a bit one dimensional, but it is a dimension I like! Well done folks, and thanks to Imbibe for having this on tap in KW.

KoNrRiI (826) - Århus, DENMARK - OCT 2, 2015
0.473 can. Clear, gold color and a medium, thin, white head leaving an average lacing. Strong aroma of pines, resin, hops, grapefruit, and a floral touch. Taste is pretty bitter, not as hoppy as expected though due to the malts which offset that character and together create a pleasant blend. Medium body, slick texture, and below average carbonation. Finish is long and balanced to an even higher degree, not a tart brew. Overall the beer is very good, one of those pleasant finds one encounters from time to time.

reebtogi (4967) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 12, 2015
473ml can pours a hazy golden orange color with a finger and a half of white head that retains well and leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is pine and grapefruit with some grains. Taste is a bold grapefruit and pine hop bitterness with a malty sweetness. Grainy mouth feel. Light to medium bodied with generous carbonation that tickles the tongue. Overall, this is a hoppy beast that is sure to satisfy most hop lovers out there.
