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!

22oz bottle from a recent trade... Pours a reddish caramel brown with a light off-white head... Aroma of biscuity caramel malt and a softer west coast hop profile. Not so fresh aroma overall but still hoppy to a lesser degree... Sweeter malty with a moderate degree of hops and a more than adequate bittering in the finish. Decent body and carbonation. Pretty balanced but not so freshly hopped to be ideal.

hopscotch (10522) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 21, 2010
Bottle… Clear, deeply golden ale with a small, fizzy, white head that dissipates quickly. The bouquet is of toffee and musky, funky hops. Full-bodied and velvety with kicked back carbonation. The huge caramel and toffee backbone is scarcely able to bear the huge, earthy onslaught of lupulin . Definitely leans onto the bitter side of balance. Lengthy, almost violently bitter finish. Reminiscent of Dreadnaught, but not quite as enjoyable.

doubleo (1432) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 17, 2010
Bomber. Pours clear copper/amber with a thin white head that leaves specks of lace. Smells nicely balanced with earthy, resiny hops and mellow caramelly malts, some alcohol as well. Nice. Tastes the same, sweet and balanced. Big, resiny, citrusy hops and nice caramel malt flavors. Full body, good carbonation.

vonderbrink (95) - Concord, California, USA - SEP 13, 2010
Bottle. Pours hazy amber with an off-white head with good lacing. Aroma of citrus hops with faint peach. Not as bitter as I expected. Starts off sweet caramel malty goodness followed by hops and finishes slightly bitter.

deyholla (9635) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 12, 2010
Bottle shared by Joe "Kan is a beautiful man" Muck, thanks a lot! Poured a clear amber with a gray head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma was full of pine with a bit of floral and citrus and a cereal backing. Flavor had a nice transformation from pine to light fruit, citrus and cereal finish.

larryLSB (485) - La Selva Beach, California, USA - SEP 12, 2010
UPDATED: JAN 27, 2013 Kind of partial to Drakes, since I grew up in San Leandro. Poured from a bomber, new penny copper, with a nice off white head that lingered. Nose was on the sweet fruity side, with hints of fresh cut pine. Nice taste, again, on the sweet side, with a little spice thrown in. Medium bodies with a nice long finish.

Bottle pours orange color with off white head. Aroma was citrus and bready notes. Medium mouthfeel. Flavors were bready or biscuit with a touch of citrus. I thought it would have been more bitter. Still a nice brew to try.

wow, great iipa! locally made, only $6.50 for a bomber. combine that with the fact that this beer is extremely drinkable, and the fact that is has nearly 10%(label on newest batch states 9.75%), and you have a really damn good deal hear. the hop profile is very nice, and its balanced nicely with a light biscuity backbone about half way through the sip. the finish is incredibly smooth, bitter but not unpleasant, this beer drinks scary easy.
