Appearance: Lone pine poured a dark orange colour that was almost copper, and was relatively cloudy. It had around two fingers of creamy head. The beer left a nice lacing on the glass as well.

Nose: Had a hoppy aroma of grapefruit, as well as a touch of pine. Pleasantly aromatic beer.

Taste: Tasted heavily of grapefruit, pine, and lemon. Lone Pine had a very dry finish as well. As the beer began to warm, it started to display a sweeter, orange like taste.

Feel: Light-medium body. Slightly creamier than other IPAs on the market.

Overall: This beer is tasty. complex hints of grapefruit, pine, and lemon make this beer a winner compared to others offered in the style . Lone Pine also opens up nicely as it warms, revealing sweet hints of orange around halfway through the bottle. A good offering from Sawdust City which I would recommend to all IPA lovers.

edit (4/19/2016): I just had this beauty again, and I think I should revise several parts of my review. This is probably my favourite local IPA, beating out the likes of Twice as Mad Tom (Muskoka), Headstock (Nickelbrook), and Ransack the Universe (Collective Arts). This beer truly stands out as an exceptional IPA, and my rating should reflect that. I therefore change my rating in "smell" to 4, "taste" to 4.5, and my overall rating to 4.5.

Good head. Good retention. Golden.
Great crisp taste with pine that stays on the tongue a long time. Love that part. Light bitterness. Great clean brew.

Hazy straw colour with a nice 2 finger hear that has retention that keeps a layer on top for the duration of the drink. Nice lacing. Citrus grapefruit smell is nice and strong and pleasant. Taste of grapefruit with some orange. Plenty of hops with some malt hiding in the wings. Feels dry with an excellent amount of aftertaste to keep you happy. Pleasant carbonation. Flavourful and fun to drink.
