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!

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 wonít regret it! Best enjoyed in a tulip glass with a bowl of kettlecorn/toffee covered peanuts

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.

great beer. Floral and grassy aromas, quite bitter with a very long finish. This one is not about balance.

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.
