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!

On tap @ E. J. Phair in C-town. Pours a brilliant clear copper with lasting thin white head and impressive sheet lacing clinging to the glass. The modest aroma of sweet malts and grassy-piny hops is noticed covering up a meek amount of sugar sweet malts and faint caramelization. The taste begins with rich malty goodness. The malts are immediately attacked by a gale force storm of hops starting with pine then moving to crisp fresh green and grassy. It almost seems wet hopped. By midway I get a nice dose of grapefruit hops joining the fray. A malty sweet backbone is resistant to the mountain of hops and retains a precarious foot hold on the flavor. It ends with malt sweetness, hints of caramelization and a hop bite that is finally beginning to give in and eventually fade away. Fantastic brew! It could however use a bigger aromatic presence.

Great malt. Balanced for a DIPA. The bitterness is very harsh though. 14 beers into the Bistro’s DIPA fest, ratings blurry.

bhensonb (12947) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 7, 2009
Tap at Bistros DIPA event. Reddish amber color with a slight off-white head. Very floral aroma. Full bodied with creamy carbonation. Flavor is more floral hop over roasted caramel. Not so bitter, but with time some creeps out in the finish. Really smooth and tasty.

Draft at Toronado. Amber pour with beige head. Nice sweet malt and fruit peel aroma. Flavor is the same, good bitterness, full body and just a good double IPa.

GABF 2007. Nice sprucey hops in the beginning with crackery malts evident as a counterpoint. Creamy head in the glass over a clear beer. On further sipping, the hops occasionally get fruity (grapefruit), but always remain crisply bitter, almost immediately once the beer touches the mouth. Solid.

GABF 2007. A clear golden beer with a thin orangey head. THe arom ais very grassy and grapefruity. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of alcohol and grapefruit, leading to a dry and very bitter finish.

Can at ZBF08. Powerful hop aroma, also very malty... Bonbon and caramel. Clear chestnut colour. Very small tan head. Very hoppy flavour, slightly biting hoppiness. Sharp grass finish. Very sweet but balanced well by the hops.
