Silver Medal winner for Imperial India Pale Ale, Great American Beer Festival 2009. Besides Jolly Roger, this is probably Drake’s most renowned beer. An Imperial (or Double) IPA, Denogginizer is a big bold beer hopped with an abundant amount of Simcoe and Amarillo with a touch of Ahtanum and Chinook. Mashed with Crystal malt and Caramalt for color and flavor to help balance out the hop assault. Denogginizer is also Drake’s most powerful regular offering, at a whopping 10% alcohol by volume!

*Mahalo to my buddy Dean for bringing this to Hawaii from California!* Orange colored with big chunky eggshell head. Interesting aroma balanced with spicy aroma hops. Not the Pine/grapefruit hops you’d expect from a Left coast IPA. Chewy & thick with light carbonation, nice mouthfeel! Delicious beer with plenty of flavor, I’m getting Star Anise and Kaffir lime peel, like an exotic asian dish and then a sweet finish as if I’m chewing bubblegum. The alcohol sneaks up at the end and you feel it warming you once it hits bottom. Yep, I’m digging this one!

Kroney (233) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 30, 2015
Bomber to snifter. Pours dark burnt orange with a frothy off-white head... heavy lacing. Aroma: big juicy hop nose with a massive burnt sugar malt backbone. Taste: hops try to come through big but give way to crystal malt. Great balance. But definitely not enough hop bitterness. Palate: big sticky finish. Phenomenal beer, just not enough hop forward to grade world class.

ADfan (691) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 6, 2015
The beer pours a clean copper color with a nice head. Aroma of all the usual sweet citrus fruits along with some pine. Big hops up front, grapefruit and lemon zest. Followed up with some pine and resin. The bitterness provides a long tangy finish.

From the bottle the pour is clear blond with a rusty red hue, the aroma is Carmel with toffee and hop notes, the taste is strong hops a little spice and a sweetness like Carmel, the mouthfeel is medium to full, overall a strong imperial ipa!

Una vez la echas en el vaso huele desde lejos a lúpulos cítricos y florales. La primera vez que la bebes es una bomba de amargor, pero que no persiste en el fondo. Notas a romero y caramelo. Bastante cuerpo. Le encantarán a los amantes de las ipas potentes y extralupuladas.

Orange-gold pour, small white head. Aroma is mild and grassy, flavor is of grass, caramel, and booze. Quite bitter, not terribly novel though.

Nose: hops, malt, and nuts. Hints of apple Taste: bitter! hoppy as hell- IBUs out the ying-yang on this one! The hops (Simcoe, Columbus, Amarillo & Cascade) come through very strong, but the great malts (Munich & Crystal) balance the beer perfectly. If you buy this beer, you won’t regret it! Best enjoyed in a tulip glass with a bowl of kettlecorn/toffee covered peanuts
