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!

Sask89 (514) - Regina, Saskatchewan, - APR 15, 2012
Pours a deep amber colour, slightly hazy with a cream tan head. Aroma is of caramel malt, brown sugar, muted citrus fruits, and a mild hop undertone. Taste is sweet up front and fairly bitter toward the finish, the bitterness lingers long after the sip as well. Creamy on the palate, medium to full body, lively carbonation. Overall a really nice double IPA.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle, the appearance is pristine gold with a shiny copper hue. The head of foam is a soft heavanly cloud of pillowy white bubbles. The aroma opens up deliciously dank with fresh, slightly sweet citrus hops cutting through sweet cereal and grain highlighted with some tropical fruitiness resembling papaya and pineapple. On the taste, I get caramel malt in conjunction with sweet cereal. A light pineapple character develops from the grain. A smooth piney dry finish balances the sweetness out. The alcohol is hidden well. An easily top 5 favorite all time IPA.

chadski (77) - California, USA - OCT 1, 2016
Sweet aroma with a molasses and caramel flavor. Hoppy bitterness is not very present. Palate is medium body. Nothing to overtly make this stand out from the crowd, but very respectable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Keg, half American pint. Pours medium pale amber with a thin tan head subsiding average. Scent is nothing. Taste is medium light cream and quite sweet. Surprising. The grass and cream are light. Vanilla. Dry. Great.

ibrubeer (306) - Omaha, USA - MAY 30, 2016
Draft @ Marriott SFO. Aroma is light citrusy hops. Color is clear dark amber with a white head that quickly dissipates, but has OK lacing. Pleasant bitterness with a little citrus, and a pretty strong malty backbone to balance. Full bodied. Didn’t taste as strong as it was to me. Very good DIPA!
