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!

bottle pours fuzzy amber, small white head sweet hoppy smell sugary, malty, hoppy taste . bit bitterness, but ’cornflake-taste ’overpowers the hops a bit . rather high carbo i like it, but it a bit weird to taste more malt than hops in a IIPA . To old, perhaps ? still awsome though !

harrymel (1450) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 7, 2013
Bottled: unk Amber with a scattered etching of off white foam and a loose, soapy rim. Mangos, peaches, cat piss, bits of pine and bubble gum. Flavor is sweet and bitter with good fruity undertones and plenty of sweet biscuit malt. There are notes of resin, pine, apple blossom, alcohol sharpness and pineapple. Medium bodied with easy, soft carb and an off dry finish. Nice beer – I’d drink this again. Serving type: bottle 09-14-2012

Haslinger (853) - The World of Beer, Texas, USA - DEC 3, 2013
on tap at the Provisions market, real nice orange hazey color with a huuuge foamy head, good hoppy aroma with some lingering citrus. Tastes somewhat nutty with a fairly bitter hop finish, some orange in the initial bite. What a wonderful IPA.

22 oz bomber from San Jose. Good aroma, nice pour with a good amount of head, but was very quick to dissipate. Pleasantly bitter on the tongue with good body and not overly hopped, but taste was a little grassy and underdeveloped/imbalanced. Worth having again but would enjoy more with a bit more sweetness to complement the hoppiness in the nose.

Oregon_butcher (60) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - NOV 21, 2013
Dark orange in color. Normal IPA head. Smells slightly hoppy and alcoholic. Smooth taste. Not overpowering anything, which is surprising since it's not too hoppy and almost 10%. Pretty good IPA ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

drowland (5961) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - NOV 18, 2013
11/18/13. 22oz bomber. Deep amber orange pour with a 2-finger khaki head that sticks and laces plentifully. Big rich hop aroma, lightly sweet, candied grapefruit, dank, some dishrag, just a hint of alcohol. Nice flavor, plenty of bitterness, balanced with plenty of sweetness, but not too much, lots of candied grapefruit, some citrus and pine, lingering bitterness. Tasty.

On tap. Poured a slightly cloudy cooper with off white head. Smell of pine. Very nice aroma and very nice taste. Was surpised as the more I drank it the more I liked it. wanted to order a second but I had to go.

VinegarStroke (210) - Napa, California, USA - NOV 13, 2013
Bottle (750ml): clear, medium copper. Moderate persistent head. Floral, pine spice and tropical. Mango. Slight resin. Huge lift. Malt but hop dominated. Slightly sweet. Not sour. Moderate to high bitterness. Rich. Long and densely flavored. Classic West Coast Imperial IPA. Over the top. This is another show beer to collect and not something to drink.
