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!

Egads, had this whopper on draft at The Red Room in Santa Cruz (great beer, kinda cool lounge atmosphere, disappointing food-- but this is a beer rating, so onward...). Pours auburn with half-inch off-white fading head. Floral and piney juiciness dominate aroma as well as the nose. The Mouthfeel is more lean than medium and there’s a plushness I surmise comes from the hops. The touch of caramel (or more like peanut brittle without the peanut: carmelized sugar) sweetness brings out the delicious alcohol notes that continue on into the finish. There’s a resurgence of hop flavors: apricot/citrus and mint/chives. Mighty one.

Pours an amber orange color with a nice head, nose is citrus with more resin and pine. Taste is bitter, with a predominance of resin and deep pine, citrus is hidden on this one. Finish is bitter and ends on the same testing notes. Quaff Score 7 / 10

Pours a clear orange color with a white, fluffly head. Lots of bitterness comes forward immediately. Notes of orange peel and honey. Spicy finish.

Bottle - light orange in color, strong citrusy aroma, grapefruit and orange citrus, resinous and somewhat dry. Reminds me of Firestone Walker Double Jack.

syrupy thick and sweet maltiness with decent hop load. Kinda barley wine to me. Caramel, candy, pine, grapefruit. Mostly sweet with OK bitterness. Bitersweet finish. Full body. Liked this one

Ruikt lekker fruitig. Mooi troebel amber. Smaakt ook heerlijk fris fruitig met lichte bitter. Weinig nasmaak, maar dat maakt m lekker fris.
