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!

Pours a very dark amber color with an off white, almost tan head. Aroma is very strong with pine, and fruit. Taste is super thick with tropical fruit and massively bitter hops in the finish. A hop heads dream. A bit thick for me, but very strong and tasty.

On tap. Clear amber golden with an off-white and lacing head. Sweetish peachy hop aroma. Quite full-bodied, sweet caramel and fat peachy hops that leave a surprisingly discreet bitterness. Warming alcohol in the finish. 070709

From tap at Stone Bistro. Pours hazy dark orange with a small white head. Grapefruity ad orange hoppy aroma. Flavour is grapefruity with a light touch of winegrapes and more solid grapefruity flavours. Smooth hoppy and light malt base flavoured finish. Nice and easy.

I don’t understand why this is rated so highly. Not a very good IIPA IMO. Heavily focused on malt (caramel) and alcohol. Bitter piny hops and citrus. Lots of heat, and some grain. Really I didnt like it that much... if you want a hop bomb thats not stupidly hot, get something else.

A very good IIPA. A little deeper in color than some can be, and a little bread-y-ier than IIPAs can be. Malts were present more than some IIPAs, but this is a west-coast hop guy. The kicker for this guy was its lingering bitter aftertaste, which I enjoyed.

Draught at Najas Place. Pours clear light brown with an average, fizzy, white head, diminishing with good lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (caramel, nutty, bread), heavy hop (flowers, citrus, pine), average yeast (dough, sweat) with notes of candied fruit - peach, pear, apple. Full bodied, sticky texture, average carbonation, and a bitter-alcoholic finish. Long duration, moderate sweetness, heavy acidity and bitterness.

On tap at O’Briens. Slightly hazy toasted golden color, good carbonation, with a big frothy white head. Sappy aroma that evokes salivation, filled with heavy crystal malts, rumcake and grapefruit citrus. Malt shows more so on the aroma than the flavor. Awesome flavor that is mildly sweet, but well-balanced with orange peel, light mango and spicy hops bitterness. The finish oozes with resinous hop oils and a crisping note of pepper above the sweet malt. A big alcohol kick keeps it all in check for a Double IPA. Very, very good. This should be a regular on their tap list.

ajm (1066) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 26, 2009
Tap at Naja’s IPA Fest. A nearly off-putting blood brown. Reminds me of a blend between an Imperial Red and a West COast Barley Wine: in other words, ’close but no cigar.’ Smells of tart hops and lightly biscuity malt and tastes very much the same. Lacks the citric quality I love and comes off rather English, though bold. Certainly de-noggins.

Bright aroma of oranges and grapefruits. Thick creamy thin white head on orange beer. Sharp bitter finish, but a lovely sweet malty body and a crisp citrus overtone. Awesome beer. Sampled at Naja’s IPA fest.

Taverner (1100) - San Ramon, California, USA - APR 14, 2009
On tap at Dublin Irish Pub. Pretty damn good IIPA. Nose is piney, resinous and cannabis like. Flavor is slightly sweet, but gives into bitter. Ends on a sweet note. Notes of pine, resin, and grapefruit. Pours amber with white head. Some hints of cannabis in this one.
