Appearance - This beer pours a cloudy orange color, With less than one finger off white head. This beer seems lightly carbonated.

Aroma - The first smell that hits your nose is a fresh pine smell, dig a little deeper and you get a strong orange peel and grapefruit citrus smell followed by some light malted barely.

Taste - First you get a strong bitter/fresh pine and orange peel flavor followed by grapefuit and Barley on the end finish, this is a very fresh beer and easy drinking for a bitter IPA.

Feel - This is a medium full bodied beer with a very creamy carbonated body. Its bitter and very smooth going down as long as your used to bitterness.

Overall - This is a decent IPA, the flavors are pretty simple and are classic west coast IPA flavors. it is way more Piney than it is citrusy. Enjoy!

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.
