COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

HKdIPA (410) - HONG KONG - MAR 21, 2015
Bottle from QClub at home. Clear deep amber copper pour with fluffy head. Aroma is big boozy hops - somewhat standard resinous DIPA. Pine resin, lemon, malty biscuit. Taste follows - deeply resinous hops, very bitter. Then some caramel maltiness. Boozy bitter finish with lingering warmth. Solid DIPA but not that original.
