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.

mcberko (12416) - 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.

Lubiere (12371) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 29, 2012
A murky amber IPA with a thick big bubbled off white head. In aroma, a strange piney hops with musky meaty notes, light sulphur. In mouth, a nice biscuit malt with loads of floral hops, menthol, grassy, in your face. Cask at Ontario Cask IPA Challenge, April 21, 2012.

Ferris (10767) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 9, 2013
Draft - Grapefruit sweet hops. Clear gold with a decent creamy beige head. Big grapefruit pith and resin. Grapefruit finish. Nice grapefruit hop bomb, out of balance but good.

Sammy (10660) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 24, 2011
On tap release party at the Burger Bar, regular tap version. Orange citrus aroma but also a bit funky smell in there. Carbonation right there. Served way too cold. Waited till warmed. A bit astringent. Simcoe, Centennial, and Cascade. Would like more malt backbone, the IBU comes right at you. hop juice, making drinkability somewhat difficult. Good head retention, 3/8"

jercraigs (9253) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 19, 2011
UPDATED: APR 25, 2012 2012-04-21. Lightly hazy golden orange amber body with a small frothy off-white head. 3+ Fruity aroma, sort of citrusy with leafy overtones that grow as you go. 6+ Flavour is similar, mild muddled fruit and citrus, leafy green hops are more dominant in the flavour than in the aroma. 6+ Average to light bodied palate is decent for a cask. Funny aftertaste, strong leafy hops and something I can’t place. 7/3/6/3/13 Blind Tasting on Cask at Volo IPA Challenge

2012-12-22. Crisp dark amber body, nice foamy beige head and nice lace on the glass. 3+ Pleasant modest bitterness throughout, very crisp, modest resin character, very light citrus, mild biscuity toasty malt accents, experientially (Is that really what I wrote?) reminds me of Crazy Canuck, but more so. 7+ First sniff of toasty malt, quickly gives way to modest resin and muted citrusy hops. Surprisingly malt forward overall, but with a nice amount of hoppy bitterness. Average plus bodied palate. 7+ Pretty solid, quite drinkable but less aggressively hopped than I typically look for. Tap at Burger Bar 7/4/7/3/14

JoeMcPhee (9169) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 7, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2012 Cask at Volo. Hazy hold pour. The nose is very hoppy and citrusy with a lot of bright dry hop dankness. Light body but intensely hoppy with just a bit of malt backing it up. Light but very tasty.

DuffMan (8934) - 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!

sebletitje (8789) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAR 28, 2016
Cannette 473ml via trade, merci Alex - Asheft. Canned on 01.27.2016. Léger orangé voilé, sur un col crémeux persistant blanc-cassé. Arôme offre un nez plaisant de houblons, plein de houblons type C avec des notes agrumes et de pin plus en retrait. Retrouve un côté pamplemousse et pomelo. Palais est houblonné un peu poussiéreux avec une touche de chaleur, le tout est ponctué par un profil houblonné mettant en avant le pin et diverses agrumes. Je note une fine sensation de picotement en fin de bouche avec une sécheresse persistante. Malt cara apportant une balance appréciable. Solide.
