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!

Draft @ O’Briens. As malty of an IIPA as you can imagine. The big bubbled head is real sturdy. There must be a shitload of hops in this as it somehow pokes its head through the ginormous malt bill.

Oh yes, I’m on an IIPA rampage. Draft at Toronado. Amber to darker amber. Aroma is strong citrus with grapefruit, caramel, pine, resin. Medium to heavy body, the alcohol really shows. Fairly bitter with a good hop finish though. Enjoyable but lacks finesse.

Tap @ Hams. Pours dark amber with a thin tan head. Subdued hops in the nose. Taste is nice and big and hoppy, full bodied and sweet, overall nice.

On Tap Hamiltons. Rich copper color, full body hoppy but balanced. Not a hop bomb but a hoppy malty IIPA. Incredible!

Nice brown pour small yellow to tan head w/ good lace. big fresh hop aroma, floral, citrus, grass, and a bit of carmel. Avg palate w/ a bit of a harsh finish. Alcoholic flavor w/ a sharp piney hop, touches of citrus.. nicely bitter finishing w/ a bit of sweet carmels. Pretty good, but not great.

brstp (201) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 9, 2007
On tap at City Beer Store. Extra-hazy orange-brown color, aroma of banana, citrus, huge tangerine. Thick, chewy mouthfeel that leaves your tongue tingling for 10-15 seconds. Lots of pine, rye in the taste -- a massive beer bordering on affrontive. Don’t drink this warm unless you’re ready for some puckering. Fucking awesome.

HopheadHans (804) - Bay Area, California, USA - SEP 24, 2007
Tap at Drake’s Friday tasting on 9/20/07. Pours wiht a copper color. Aromas are mainly hops with some caramel and toffee as well as dark fruit. Very hoppy with a long bitter finish but some malt sweetness to offset the massive hops. Very well balanced. Hides the alcohol really well, it was listed as 10%.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - FEB 2, 2007
Hand-bottle sampled on 7/2/06: Pours a transparent copper bronze with a thin-lacing, wispy white head. Aroma of sweet, grainy caramel malt and fresh green citrusy hops. Body starts with some lightly sweet pale maltiness turning more bitter and grapefruity floral hoppy toward a drier bittersweet finish. Doesn’t quite have the hop profile I like in a double IPA, but is still a pretty decent brew.

realale420 (399) - west covina, California, USA - JAN 15, 2007
On tap poured copper in color with a nice off white head. The aroma was full of citrusy hops with some small caramel notes. The taste had some bitterness, but balanced well with the amount of alcohol. A nice treat to find, if you can find it.
