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!

Poured from a bomber into a pint glass. Color was caramel. Lots of head, maybe three or four fingers, mainly because of an awful pour by me. Full of white frothy cloudy lacing. Pretty similar look on the sides (film) compared to the lacing. Lots of bitter hops in the initial sniff. Citrus hops, but couldn’t put the fruit in it. Some lemon and some tangerine I think. Tasted of a nice mixture of caramel malts and citrus hops with a bitter alcohol backbone. Seemed to be more caramel than citrus. I’d say lemon for citrus, but not a bad balance. Medium body. Creamy texture. Lively (above average) carbonation. Long and nice finish. A pretty good beer overall, but I have to admit I was expecting just a tad bit more. My awful pour in the beginning didn’t help, but still.

Leafy hops with a fantastic citrus twist on the nose. Pours a beautiful light gold with a very thin foam top. Huge bitter hop bite up front, with an incredibly delicious citrus/grapefruit background. Strong, full flavor with a pleasant carbonation and thin, smooth texture. Overall, I am thouroghly impressed with this brew. As far as a spectacular IPA goes, this brew absolutely nails it. Genius hop flavor coushined by a subtle malt background. I love everything about this, A+ rating.

Poured from the bomber. Love the rate beer app barcode scanner. This has a nice hop aroma, an even better flavor. The palate is the deal sealer, great full body nice head, and decent lacing. This is a nice iipa, the abv is felt.
