Canada rocks and they prove it over and over again - they are right there on the tails of the good old US when it comes to blasting IPAs - no surprise because they are full on classic US hops: summit, simcoe, columbus and chinook set the standard. Okay, they have plenty of Canadian ingredients in there as well. And there you have it: an amazing IPA as it should be. Citrusy, fruity, piney. Great. Very mild though! No bitterness there, almost. A tiny bit in the end maybe. A proper and feelgood IPA nevertheless - somewhere between the East Coast and the West Coast tradition, not that dry but not that full bodied either - just great! Now I'm ready to crack another Canadian IPA open!

Hazy orange color, off-white head. Aroma is resiny with orange rind and sweet malt background. Taste follows with bitter hop resin and astringent notes. Medium body and carbonation. Old school, a bit harsh.

Yellow orange and unfiltered look. Lots of aroma, pine and citrus. Delivers same on the palate. Flavour all over the tongue, not isolated. A bit more sweet than my favourite IPA: Ransack the Universe. One of the “juicy” IPAs. Long after taste. No bitterness, but clearly hoppy. I’d recommend it to everyone. Worth trying, especially if your budget is tight.

the only beer i got to try from sawdust city on my trip, but its a petty solid ipa, and one i saw around town a little bit. its got a nice orange glow to it and a little chill haze, but not all fogged up and new school looking, lively and heady too. it smells quite well balanced, perhaps a little maltier than is on trend right now, with more of a crystal malt profile presenting itself. it has a great hop complexion though, bitter and grapefruity and northwestern, very robust and more bitter than a lot of the other hoppy beer i had in ontario. its also well dry hopped it seems, with a juicy fruity citrus complexion to match the bitterness in the taste, maybe some citra and simcoe at work, but there is enough grain in here that the hops arent totally obvious. orange and pine and zest, dry bready too, less sweet from the more sturdy grain composition than expected, and thats a nice touch. good full body, plenty of carbonation from the pint can, and overall a very enjoyable, if a little straight forward ipa. fresh and tasty. i would have liked to try a little more beer from these guys on my trip, it will have to wait until next time!

Full bodied nose that radiates the scents of Canada's pine forests. Great flavour. All round a fantastic brew.

From a can from the LCBO. Beautiful pale amber with a rocky off white head with great lacing. Herbal, piney, spicy hops on the nose. Flavour includes fruit and bready malt balancing a full slightly piney hop flavour. Good mouthful without being overwhelming.

I brought a can of this back from Hamilton, ON last January whilst in Canada for my son's hockey tournament. It poured a hazy orangish with floaters and white head that is leaving a spotty lace. The scent had hints of pine. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink. There was pine bitterness presence. The mouthfeel was medium in body with good carbonation. Overall it was a solid beer.

Pours golden with a thin white head, almost no lacing. Pine hits you right in the nose and follows through in the taste. Makes this feel very one dimensional. The bitterness is a bit overwhelming and becomes very muddled in the finish. Quite underwhelming.

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.

Pours a bright orangie golden with a lively white head. Aromas of pine and stone fruit. Flavour is similar with a lingering earthy bitterness that's not aggressive

16oz can into a pint glass. Poured a sharp golden with a lush white head. Hops. Big hops in the nose which was spicy and sharp. More hops on the first sip which were sharp rather than resinous and which would have signaled an unbalanced hop-bomb but for the immediate follow of deep caramel malts. This made for a surprisingly balanced beer after the initial assault of hops. well worth seeking out.

Pours a nice head, shows some lace.

Big, piny aroma. The same hops come through in the flavour as well, with a little underlying spearmint and herb. Total lack of fruit and citrus, which is a welcome change. Solid bitterness, but not overbearing.

Well-attenuated, moderate body is smooth, with a light hop acidity.

A good drinker.
