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!

Defreni (2798) - Husum, DENMARK - SEP 9, 2011
Flaske: Ravfarvet klar øl med et stort flot skumhoved. Dejlig duft af humle, med en god del krystalmalt der popper op under den kraftige humle. Smagen er dejlig men ikke så fantastisk som hopocalypse. God maltbase men humlen mangler lige det sidste nøk. Ellers en dejlig meget bitter øl.

Dedollewaitor (14539) - Odense, DENMARK - SEP 8, 2011
Bottle @ Vinens Verden, Odense. Pours cloudy orange with a small creamy white head and lacings. Caramel, pine and grapefruit. Fine balance. The malts are there - but the hops are fresh and powerfull. Really tasty and well made. Smooth and full bodied.

hayduke (3691) - Eureka, California, USA - SEP 7, 2011
Pours a rich dark amber with a tan head and lots of lacing. Nose of caramel malts and lots of citrus, pine, and floral hops. Rich body and a slick smooth mougthfeel. Flavor is very intense, with excellent balance between malts and hops. The finish is long, dry and an excellent bitter. A wonderful DIPA from first to last drop. Loved this one.

Strykzone (5501) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 26, 2011
22 oz. bottle from Hayduke. We shared it via facebook chat. This beer looks like a barley wine. It is dark brown and opaque with a nice light tan head. The nose rocks with both big caramel and hops that are all over the place. The flavor is amazingly balanced with huge caramel and equally huge hops. They are pine and citrus and are delicious. This is a monster of a beer and is tasty as can be. It is huge but that ABV is totally hidden. This is delicious. It has everything one would hop for in an IIPA. Ron, you knocked this one out of the park. Thanks so much.

thewolf (11434) - Kolding, DENMARK - AUG 26, 2011
Bottle, bought @ Havnens Vin & Tobak, Vejle.
Clear red-orange with a lovely, frothy, off-white head. Good duration. Lovely resiny hops aroma, some plant sap, strawberries, pine, floral. Good fat malty backbone. Low to medium carbonation, fat and creamy mouthfeel with fantastic hoppy dryness. Flavour is top-effing-notch! Apricot, peach, pine, resin, plant sap. Red apples, dryness... fantastic malt base that is equally apparent as it gives room to the hops. Strawberries, red currant and pine in the finish. Really a very, very impressive Double IPA.
