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.

UPDATED: DEC 5, 2015 Achetez fraîs à la LCBO!

Au nez, odeur prononcé de résine de pin, pamplemousse, un peu de citron et de malt!

En bouche, goût similaire à l’odorat, aussi prononcer qu’au nez! Un délice. Une bonne finale en bouche de la résine et du malt!

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.

UPDATED: APR 14, 2017 Can dated Jan. 03 2017: Pours hazy dark orange, thick pillowy retentive white head, lots of big sediment goodies and rings of lacing. Aroma of pine, resinous hops, citrus (orange/grapefruit) bit of tropical fruit (mango/peach). Lots of bitterness with some malt backbone. Full/smooth feel, medium carbonation, and good long bitter dry orange peel finish. Teeters beautifully just on the edge of being a little too much, but has enough body to back it up. Admittedly, I’ve had this many times and never got around to reviewing it, but always enjoy it every time. Tonight it stood up excellently to some hot wings and it’s fruitiness even came out more with dessert.

Generally not a huge fan of strong hop-forward IPA's. But this has good complexity on nose and hops are upfront but well integrated. This could be great vector to explore more IPA's for those like myself. Nicely done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

650mL from my lickbow. Pours a clear copper with a small beige head and the aroma is full of nice piney hops and a malt backbone playing a supportive role. The flavour is where this one shines and you get a nice wave of juicy citrus hops followed by some bitter astringency in the finish. Minor fruity esters linger on the palate such as blood orange and peach. Rides along on a tasty biscuit-malt body. A solid IPA from Sawdust City.

mcberko (19172) - 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.

UXO (1922) - CANADA - SEP 8, 2014
Pours a clear pale amber with an enthusiastic three fingers of fluffy white head diminishing gradually to a thin cap and moderate spotty lacing. Nose is bright and big, pine resin and citrus, with some pineapple and sweet caramel malt. Taste follows suit, with brief caramel sweetness followed immediately by tropical fruit and pine resin bitterness. Medium body, with moderate sustained carbonation and a lingering sticky bitterness on a dry finish.

Well, that’s a whole lot of fun! Big, bright hops on the nose, followed up by a whole lotta hops on the tongue. The flavour is nicely balanced between sweet malt and big hops at the outset, with the hops then growing by leaps and bounds. The sharpness gets a little aggressive on the finish, but not to the point of being unbalanced.

Orange gold colour, fantastic pine/citrus aroma. Pine and grapefruit rind, earthy hop bitterness linger on the palate. Exceptional brew, we?ll done. Easily in my top 5.

Nice colour, great foam that lasted a long time. Heavy on the pine flavours but good balance with the citrus and bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
