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!

Ok this is a wonderful beer. Lovely in the glass, a blaze orange. Nose is tropical fruits, pear and lemon rind. Taste is so balanced and delicious....the beautiful dry finish makes the next sip something to look fwd to. One the the best DIPA’s out there.

theOptimator (286) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 26, 2014
Aroma is citrus floral onion. Appearance is crystal clear copper w off white head. Taste is clean malt hop flavor forward. A crisp caramel malt folllowed immediatelly by hop bitterness. Palate is crisp but has some malt as well. Overall a nice IIPA.

finol (2191) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 25, 2014
Bottle at Mikkeller Stockholm. Pours hazy amber. Very nice full and smooth mouthfeel. Caramel, fudge and some citrusy hops, but in total, more malt than hops.

jackl (4671) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAR 31, 2014
Bottle via trade. Medium amber with a large creamy off-white head. The aroma’s actually pretty peppery. Dusty countryside, plenty of grass. Moderate lemon sherbet and caramel-dipped mango fruit leather sweetness. Surprisingly smooth for a beer touching 10%. Slight heat, caramel and tree bark. Peppered flowers and orange peel. Moderately bitter finish. Oily, but not overly so. Crisp carbonation keeps things relatively light on the palate. Overall, quite good. The distinct peppery flavors set this apart from most IIPAs I’ve tried.

Abio (1616) - Waasland, BELGIUM - MAR 22, 2014
Dark amber coloured brew. Hoppy, caramel and spices. Not bad at all. Maybe just a bit to simple to be with the real big players.

wyzzywyz22 (1969) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2014
Bottle, Beer Moth, Manchester. Dark amber pour with a decent off-white head. Nose was fragrant hop aplenty, booze, citrus and sweet malts. Flavour ploughed a similar furrow with robust hop bitterness and quite prominent alcohol. Overall the hops on show here are terrific and this is a very tasty DIPA. Liking all the output I’ve tasted from the Drake’s stable very much.
