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!

Saeglopur (1577) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JUN 7, 2015
Bottled 01/22/15, shared by Werckmeister at Bratislava Slovak-Austrian RB Tasting, thanks!
Amber, clear body, with a big, frothy, lacing, yellowish head.
Aroma of grapefruit, pine, orange, biscuit, grass.
Taste follows this, with more honey like malts.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with a soft carbonation.
Finishes bitter-sweet, zesty, piney, sweet malty.

Very nice, although I was expecting a bit more. Straight, with some hop kick, balanced by lots of smooth malts. Quite far behind my favourite IPAs, but still enjoyable.

weark (572) - Morges, SWITZERLAND - APR 19, 2015
Bouteille achetée chez Erzbierschof - Une bière dorée un peu orange et limpide avec une belle mousse blanche crémeuse qui dure et laisse de petite dentelle sur le verre - Au nez des arômes de malt, de houblon floraux et agrumeux, des note de thé et de grain, des notes d’orange de mangue de fruit tropicaux - En bouche des arômes de grain, de malt, de thé, infusion de houblon, de biscuits de forte pointe d’alcool - Corp lourd, amertume forte, carbonation moyenne, amer et sèche, final amère sur le thé et le malt - Une impérial IPA dans toute ca splendeur, je trouve ce style un peu trop extrême quand même

Swaroga (1953) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 3, 2015
Butelka 50cl. OCZY : piwo ma kolor pomarańczowy, jest prawie całkowicie przejrzyste. Piana ma kolor kremowy, jest trwała i spora. NOS : od razu uderza alkohol, mango, karmel i żywica. Do tego kandyzowane owoce tropikalne, skórka pomelo, gruszka, gotowane wiśnie. Sernik, skórka cytryny i limonki, aldehyd octowy i jeszcze raz mnóstwo żywicy. USTA : piwo jest mało nasycone, ma kremowa i dosyć gęstą konsystencje jak na ten styl. Ciekawe ale mocno perfumowane. Alkohol do tego to mocno podkreśla. Trochę jakby się piło perfum dla kobiet. Gorzkość jest średnia i dobrze kontruje słodycz. Gorzkość jest podobna do skórki pomelo i jest podkreślona alkoholem. Pierne i alkoholowe w posmaku. ODCZUCIA : DIPA na granicy pijalnego amerykańskiego Barley Wine. Alkohol troszeczkę za bardzo dominuje to piwo. No i oczywiście te perfumy coraz bardziej mi nie odpowiadają ale jeżeli chodzi o jakość tego piwa to trudno się przyczepić bardziej.

Backlog. 22 oz bomber shared, from the Save Mart in Truckee. Not a ton of flavor. Pine, resinous hops, medium to heavy bitterness and mild sweetness. Medium to full body with a pretty clean finish. Decent.
