COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Silver Medal winner for Imperial India Pale Ale, Great American Beer Festival 2009. Besides Jolly Roger, this is probably Drakeís 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 Drakeís most powerful regular offering, at a whopping 10% alcohol by volume!

Pours a amber dark copper, great lacing. Aroma is piney hops and citrucy notes Sweet Carmel malt.Taste is very hoppy with a Sweet Carmel malt backbone very piney resiney hops with some slight orange peel and grapefruit character. Medium to heavy mouth feel. Leaves a hoppy resiney character on the tongue. Very great beer!

An intense aroma of bitter hops and grapefruit. This is a tasty IPA, definitely not a subtle one. Tons of bitter hops from the start, but the finish is truly interesting, as the bitterness and the citrus battle back and forth. Pretty good stuff.

6th annual Bistro IIPA fest. This brew won best of show in í05 and í04. Failed to place this year. I see why it did so well in yearís past and am shocked it isnít more highly rated than it is. Wonderfully bitter aroma. Amber body; yellowish, off-white head. Excellent lace. Really good. Good balance. I canít come up with a way that this could be any better. Outstanding.

Hand bottled @ the brewery. This is one of the best IIPA"s, and one of the better beers Iíve rated. Huge hop aroma w/ flavor donimated by hops and alcohol spiciness. Simple, not overdone w/ malt, and damn good. Nice job Rodger.

Cool brass/copper color, earthy feel, great flavor, and well balanced malt is real treat. Not too heavy and great head, reccomended to other DIPA lovers, close to a green flash imperial IPA style

Leafy hops with a fantastic citrus twist on the nose. Pours a beautiful light gold with a very thin foam top. Huge bitter hop bite up front, with an incredibly delicious citrus/grapefruit background. Strong, full flavor with a pleasant carbonation and thin, smooth texture. Overall, I am thouroghly impressed with this brew. As far as a spectacular IPA goes, this brew absolutely nails it. Genius hop flavor coushined by a subtle malt background. I love everything about this, A+ rating.
