Mashed with Crystal malt and Caramalt for color and flavor to help balance out the hop assault. Denogginizer is also Drakes most powerful regular offering, at a whopping 10% alcohol by volume!

Bottle. Amber pour with a one inch tan head. Aroma is floral, caramel, and light pine. Taste is sweet like brown sugar with a bitter grapefruit pith finish. Mouthfeel is thick and syrupy. Carbonation is low.

skoisirius (1909) - Earth, Washington, USA - DEC 25, 2011
Oh wow. Yep. Drakes does it again. Big piney, grapefruity, citrusy blast on the nose...combined with a tendery fruity malt. Flavor is everything a DIPA should be. Big and bold on the malt front at first, directly followed by a splash of bittering hops that stick to the palate like glue. You barely taste the 10%...it hits a tiny bit towards the finish, but just barely. Other than that, smooth, smooth, smooth. I could drink this all day (as long as I had food in me!). Damn good brew. Wish Drakes was in Washington!!!!

FROTHINGSLOSH (7449) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 25, 2011
My first beer from this brewery. +++ Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured an apricot color with a medium sized foamy beige head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was tangy pine, resin and grapefruit. The flavor was bitter and tangy pine, resin and catbox with light grapefruit, lemon and caramel. The finish was long, bitter and piney and turned a bit dry. Moderately full bodiedl. Decent.

944play (413) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - DEC 13, 2011
Draft at Toad in the Hole. Hazy copper with small fine head. Grassy, herbal, floral nose. Initially rather sweet, but an ample bitterness sweeps in and leaves berry notes in its wake. Crisp and mineral finish; feels big but not ponderous. Wickedly bitter and intoxicating.

Koelschtrinker (19101) - Kln (Cologne), GERMANY - DEC 13, 2011
Blumiger Hopfenbeginn, gepaart mit honigartiger Se. Das Aromenspektrum des Hopfens wchst im Mittelteil, hier grasig mit deutlichen Zitrusnoten, dabei bodenstndig mit brotigen Malznoten. In seinen hopfigen Phasen wirkt das Bier z.T. schwer, der Alkoholgehalt wird hier erkennbar. Das Bier hat eine geringe Se, was die Sffigkeit erhht. Erdiger, sehr langer Hopfennachgeschmack, dunkler werdend. 9/12/12/13/12/13

pushkinwow (2730) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 30, 2011
Bomber. Amber with an off white head. Pine resin hops with a malt backbone, alcohol - very over the top and not subtle which I usually enjoy but this seems almost like a little much - may need to mellow a bit. Full bodied, low carbonation (although would not have though that considering how it poured), bite from the alcohol, some sweetness but the bitterness grown and becomes astringent; that being said it mellows a bit on on the finish, malt and hops along with booze are at the forefront along with the resin from the nose.

Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 30, 2011
655 ml bottle. Cloudy dark brown colour. Medium off-white head. Bold grapefruity floral hop aroma. Dusty and bready. Quite bitter and has a sharp edge, but theres enough malt to balance. Lots of citrus. Sweet and rich. Nicely balanced, but favours the sharper bitterness. Very nice, but gets tiring after a while.

drpimento (3374) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 10, 2011
Heavy duty IPA. I let it warm a bit out of the fridge first. Poured a large, off white, thick, foamy, creamy head that slowly settles out and a little lace. Color is a very clear orange amber with a number of slow tiny bubble trails. Aroma is hugely hop resin, pine, grapefruit, with malt and caramel. Flavor is very close to nose with only the added benefit of carbonic tang to more evenly balance the mix. Body is perfect: full, not to soft or sharp, mouthfilling without being thick and just right carbonation. Finish is like flavor and surprisingly of only average length and slight alcohol warmth. Its a hop blaster, set on stunning.
