Canis Major Becker
A ~ Pours a gorgeous gold w/ an amber tone to it. Beautiful head. I'm digging the lightness of the beer.
It just Really looks nice just sitting there, but I guess I have to drink it...
S ~ Holy Tropicalia! Tons of Mango, Guava, & Grapefruit w/ mild orange notes. Hints of Raw Sugar, & slightly piney aromas (of the dank variety)
T ~ Grapefruit follows through w/ more pronounced Orange notes & just tons of hop flavor. Lots of breadyness & grain as the it fades on the palette, finishing very green.
M ~ It evolves from chalky, to fruity, slightly organic, & finishes thickly floral & semisweet with a bit of heat. Pretty dry & leaves a nice feel on the tongue as it goes down.
D ~ Pretty great IIPA that just looks simply fantastic. Lots of bitterness & a truckload of hop flavor. Clarity is brilliant for so much flavor. I don't know how they did it! Highly recommend. Thanks Crabbicus!

Tasted July 25th 2011 (from review)
Poured into a la Chouffe tulip
A - pale straw, half finger white head and some lacing
S - very sweet, tons of citrus, lots of tropical fruits and flowers, very sweet, lots of malt, slight pungent yeast and all around awesomeness
T - super hoppy, lots of sugar, tons of fruit, grass, yeast, wheat, nice sweet malt, boozey but not to boozey, very slight MJ note. Very simple but tons of flavor
M - Full bodied, excellent balance, simple complexity, medium acidity and a very nice almost perfect hop, malt and sugary booze finish
D/O - This is the kind of beer that makes me want all beers to be readily available all over the America's! One of the better DIPA's I have had and most definitely makes founders worth the "hype"
Final Thoughts - at 9+ ABV this beer kicks it into gear and is one of the better DIPA's. Still, not being easy to obtain, make this beer obnoxiously awesome!
