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.

(En fût à Flights El Segundo): Un corps moelleux et résineux à la fois, du sapinage, des abricôts et quelques feuilles de thé. L’amertume est souple comme la texture.

(Drakes Denogginizer) Bottle 650 ml at home, served into a shaker, ABV 9.7% Orange colour on the body, crystal clear, with a full finger of white thick head on top, with very good retention in spite od its small size. Not very strong aroma, some caramel malts, light orange, biscuit. Taste is better, strong alcohol from the first sip, with caramel malts, biscuit, light grapefruit, plenty of orange, hints of tropical fruits on the finish along with a nice bitterness. Medium body, good carbonation, slightly dry palate. Good, highly drinkable.
