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@BrouwerijDeMolen. Very soft floral, light perfumy and light grassy hoppy aroma. Wonderful in short. Light malty, floral, light fruity, light perfume. Very very good balance. Medium body, bit bitter dry finish. Balanced, flavourful, refreshing. Great! Thanks to whoever gave this to us. I love it.

Draft @ Marriott SFO. Aroma is light citrusy hops. Color is clear dark amber with a white head that quickly dissipates, but has OK lacing. Pleasant bitterness with a little citrus, and a pretty strong malty backbone to balance. Full bodied. Didn’t taste as strong as it was to me. Very good DIPA!
