4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours clear deep amber to copper reddish with beige creamy top, light lasing, rocky top, thick texture liquid.
Aroma - citrus, a bit mushrooms, earthy, sweet-fruity, toffee, a bit caramel-candy, very deep, complex aroma, enjoyed a lot.
Taste - medium malt sweet and for DIPA I would say bitter is mild, could be more, medium dry finish. Bitter, minimal sweet aftertaste.
Palate - above average body, sticky and a bit slick texture, soft carbonation, light astringent mouthfeel.
O.A. - as brewer claims it has 90 IBUs, and that is only tiny minus to this brew to me, I prefer more bitter ones. Otherwise - enjoyed every aspect of this beer. Even my mum said I like it(she somehow found raspberries in flavor).

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at The Salted Pig in Riverside, CA. Pours darker orange or lighter amber with sheets of complete lacing. Nose is fresher, near dank juicy hops with cantaloupe and orange section. Taste is dustier, harsher, some nuttiness. Palate a bit too dry and dusty...papery. Perhaps not the freshest keg. Mild alcohol density and heat.

Pours a dark golden color with a strong hoppy aroma. Very citrusy beer. Can slightly taste the alcohol in it. Solid beer though.

Raisin and malt aroma. Beige pillow head. Darker amber color with some cloudiness. Malty taste. Has a wood and slight lemon feel at first then a bitter and smokey after taste. This feels like it would go great with some seafood. Thatís what the tongue is saying.

Beautiful beer. I control "fíd" honey and got nothing on the review page, and I am shocked. Reminds me of Firestoneís Double Jack but a bit more boozy and a lil less hop forward... so i guess, not really at all like Double Jack. Overall, awesome beer; Iíll be purchasing this again.

Very very fine beer. Just enough fizz, bitter flavour, light amber in colour. Perhaps too powerful to drink in large volume though.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a 22 ounce bottle thanks to mashmaster. Pours a copper color with a fluffy beige head of foam. Aroma is bready with a lot of caramel character. This beer has very little in the way of hop profile. I donít know that this beer is currently at its best.

October 28th, 2011 - Drakeís Denogginizer is one of the first Drake beers to make it to a visible place on shelves here in San Diego, but it didnít need too much help. The bold, artistic label is eye-catching, and the price is more than reasonable. Greater rewards await the drinker behind the glass, where a surprisingly fruity double IPA lurks. The smell from the bottle and the glass exhibits fruity esters, pine, and a soft marshmallow sweetness. And while these aromas are generally sharp and acidic, the smell itself is thick and nostril-clogging, perfuming not only the air around the glass, but the whole damn room. A sweet hops jumps out on the palate first, followed by more pine resin and orange juice, coaxed through to a medium-long aftertaste where the sugars gently glow before theyíre extinguished by a short passing of time. A dusty birch tree woodiness also appears in the aftertaste, after the loud chiseling of a high ABV and a sentry of sugars have mostly passed. The hops flavor is unique too, and I can see why when I refer to their commercial description and see a type of hops Iíve never even heard of before. The Donogginizer hits the palate on all fronts, and deserves a place at the end of a line of tastings where itís savagery wonít harm innocent bystanders. Itís a solid offering from a brewery Iíve never had before, and while my palate is eager for other sample of the hard-headed wash of flavors, I am also eager to try Drakeís other brews.

Bottle shared thanks to Dmac. Pours a clear amber color with a light off white head. Aroma is of grapefruit, citrus, lightly subdued hop resin, light grainy malt notes, and a touch of alcohol. Taste is grapefruit, citrus, bready malts, light pine mild sweetness and some drying alcohol on the finish.
