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 Citys 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.

northropfrye (3360) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 26, 2016
Clear orange boy, lasting foamy head, some lacing. Aroma of pine, hops, West Coast in character. The taste is nice at first, but I found the afterbite a bit aggressive in its medicinal bitterness. Like asprin. Over all a decent IPA.

Bierdimpfe (550) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 4, 2016
Cloudy golden color with dense activity. Creamy beige 2 finger head, lasting around 20 minutes, with good legs. Flavors of pine, orange, grapefruits, lemon, pineapples, and herbal spices. Nice fruity sweetness with pretty sharp citrus. Slick medium body with prickly carbonation. Strong finish of tropical fruits, long lingering spruce tar tongue coat of leafy and grassy hops. Lone Pine is a piney one indeed, but not excessive having good balance here, because the flavors are not masked. Still quite fresh and having very tasty flavors. Overall very good quality craft.

zimbo (923) - SCOTLAND - OCT 25, 2016
Hazy yellow with an abundant clean white head. Resin, spice pungent nose and penetrating with s glow. Good piney bitterness which develops over the long haul and is complex with some sap, some citrus sweetness and herbal pepperiness. Intense but not extreme, strong but by no means brutish. Very good.

473 ml can. Canned Aug/30/2016. (LCBO) Thunder Bay, ON.
Clear golden color with a mid-size foamy white head. Piney and citrusy hops, mild bitterness, dryness and dry malt in a clean aroma. The flavor is resiny, piney and citrusy hops, moderate bitterness, dryness and dry grainy maltiness. Dry and hoppy. Nice.

ComradeK (1166) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 26, 2016
Draught at The Craft Beer Market, Ottawa. Pours a clear dark gold, with a moderate off-white head, which lasts very well and leaves good lacing. Plenty of pine and mango hops mix with a little caramel malt in the aroma. Strong pine, mango and pineapple hops up front give way to a good caramel malt backbone. Bracing pine hops finish it off. This is a very good IPA, with plenty of hops flavour.

googleimage83 (89) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 27, 2016
Pine, orange, mango, peach on the nose - high quality. Pours a cloudy maple-orange with large, pillowy and clingy head. Taste is fruity hops, dry citrus, pine, with grainy malt. Finish is long and pleasantly bitter with grapefruit peel. Well balanced, but a bit too heavy for sessioning. Great beer all-around.

BytownJon (58) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 10, 2016
Tall boy can. Murky deep yellow body and for mine, lots of sediment. Aroma to die for. Turned away for a second after pouring it, and the citrus and pine-y hops caught my nose when coming back. Mouth is weaker than aroma, still sweet malts with hoppy after bite but mild.Some wildness infused in the fruitiness. But very drinkable. Dont think could do more than 2 in a sitting.
