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.

Papillon (400) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 14, 2016
473 mL Can. Murky gold body with a 3-finger white foamy head that settles but get prety clingy and blotchy on the sides of the glass. Resiny-grapefruity hops are first in line at the nose, a hint of grass and clover, and the sweet light malts complete the bouquet. The sweet pale malts delight the tongue and then the hops embrace in the aftertaste. Hoppy-bitter linger in the finish. Call it the IPA addiction, call it whatever, but for me it flies quite well.

This is an impressive IPA. Pours with a beautiful head that lasts. Cloudy orange. Grapefruit aromas and pine. Continues on the tongue. Long pleasant finish. Nicely done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cannette 473ml via trade, merci Alex - Asheft. Canned on 01.27.2016. Lger orang voil, sur un col crmeux persistant blanc-cass. Arme offre un nez plaisant de houblons, plein de houblons type C avec des notes agrumes et de pin plus en retrait. Retrouve un ct pamplemousse et pomelo. Palais est houblonn un peu poussireux avec une touche de chaleur, le tout est ponctu par un profil houblonn mettant en avant le pin et diverses agrumes. Je note une fine sensation de picotement en fin de bouche avec une scheresse persistante. Malt cara apportant une balance apprciable. Solide.

___Steve___ (71) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 4, 2016
Powerfully aromatic, grassy wet hops to begin with some yeast and light banana notes and a mild spice scent. Unfiltered, creamy, pastel appeal with a thick snowy head. Bold and bitter and favours the fan of hops. Balanced with citrus and grapefruit flavours. The aftertaste is sturdy and lasts a while.

Tessic (1111) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 30, 2016
This IPA poured a cloudy Amber colour with a big white head. Scents include lots and lots of citrus. Pine and cedar to boot. Smells over the top hoppy. First swig thank God wasn't as hoppy as the nose. Slightly sweet with flavours of pineapple and lemon citrus. Finish is lightly lemony and medium bitter.

bunget (896) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 12, 2015

Crockett (1112) - Southampton, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 11, 2015
Pours hazy bright honey gold. Big bubble rocky, slightly off-white head. Tonnes of lacing. Slow moving soft carbonation. There is a noticeable amount of very fine particulate in this beer. Aroma is lighter than expected with honey, grain, fresh bread yeast, with notes of tropical fruits, and juicy pine resin. Ample mouthfeel. Could use more carbonation. Decent balance between the toasted bread malts, faint notes of caramel, and spice, with a very well hopped (but not scary) citric punch. A little oily/resinous. Good burnt grass bitterness hanging on the backend. Traces of peach, and icing sugar through the finish, without being too sweet. Very good.
