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!

Liked this one, seemed less hoppy then other ipa’s. The malt seemed a little more prevalent. Enjoyed the heat from the high abv, but for an imperial I was looking a little more for the hop punch in the mouth and it never showed up. I will buy again as I really like drakes, but will remember that this is an imperial that is more balanced with the malt, not just an all out hop blitz.

Orange-gold pour, small white head. Aroma is mild and grassy, flavor is of grass, caramel, and booze. Quite bitter, not terribly novel though.

Nose: hops, malt, and nuts. Hints of apple Taste: bitter! hoppy as hell- IBUs out the ying-yang on this one! The hops (Simcoe, Columbus, Amarillo & Cascade) come through very strong, but the great malts (Munich & Crystal) balance the beer perfectly. If you buy this beer, you won’t regret it! Best enjoyed in a tulip glass with a bowl of kettlecorn/toffee covered peanuts

Saeglopur (1053) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JUN 7, 2015
Bottled 01/22/15, shared by Werckmeister at Bratislava Slovak-Austrian RB Tasting, thanks!
Amber, clear body, with a big, frothy, lacing, yellowish head.
Aroma of grapefruit, pine, orange, biscuit, grass.
Taste follows this, with more honey like malts.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with a soft carbonation.
Finishes bitter-sweet, zesty, piney, sweet malty.

Very nice, although I was expecting a bit more. Straight, with some hop kick, balanced by lots of smooth malts. Quite far behind my favourite IPAs, but still enjoyable.
