COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Silver Medal winner for Imperial India Pale Ale, Great American Beer Festival 2009. Besides Jolly Roger, this is probably Drakes 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 Drakes most powerful regular offering, at a whopping 10% alcohol by volume!

Amberish pour. Off white head. Pine, caramel malt, some light char, floral hops. Hoppy flavor hits with some light malt and molasses. Interesting.

Bottle. Pours a deep copper color. Hint of brown sugar and molasses in the aroma. Hops springs to your nose. Big, tangy mouthfeel. Nice balance of hops and malt. But very tart. Kind of a dry finish. Pretty impressive beer if I do say so myself.

Bomber picked up at City Beer in San Fran; clear, dark caramel; fluffy white head; onion, garlic, mild buttery hops; sweet mouthfeel, but lots of garlic; sticky, dry mouthfeel; lots of dirty socks and garlic; not sure if its just an old bottle or what, but Im not digging this one at all

650ml bottle from bev4less. Pours a rich copper color with a medium off-white head that has fair retention and some lacing. The aroma is strong with citrus (mostly oranges), spices and soap. The flavor is sharply biter with pine resins, grapefruit, caramel and biter nuts. The palate is full and smooth with lively carbonation. The finish is long and biter. Overall: I found this bordering on being harsh, still, strengths outweigh weaknesses.

Outside of Pliny, Imperial/Double IPAs seem to have a very similar makeup. Resin, pine and considrable malt undertone. The latter can be good, dont get me wrong, but this beer is an exception. The hop aroma is unique in its pine and citrus notes and there is only a slight hint of the malt underneath. Not so in the taste. There is some resin, but the pine of the hops, the caramel of the malt and an almost licorice undertone. Not to mention the heat you get as it warms. I am enjoying this very much and will have to go back and buy a few more!

10 ounce sample on tap at Rubicon Brewing Company for Hoptoberfest. Aroma is very orangey with some hempy Simcoe notes. Nice balance of sweetness and hops are present here. Very nicely aromatic. Transparent copper-amber body with a small off-yellow head and decent lacing. Wow - this is really tasty stuff. Starts with a ton of hops (simcoe, methinks). Fairly sweet and sticky with nice, chewy malts in the middle. Finishes with a mild herbal hop bitterness. Well-balanced and very drinkable!

elihapa (1552) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - NOV 9, 2010
On tap. Pours dark amber with good head retention. Aroma bursts with red fruit, ripe orange, pinneaple, touch of pine. Palate is good rounded presence, medium-dry finish; not too sticky. Flavor is predictably bold and hoppy, with firm sweet malt and fruit middle. Finish is a touch booze sharp, with minty elements. Tasty.

Aquilo (641) - Berkeley, California, USA - OCT 31, 2010
Clear amber color with a small creamy head. Floral and caramel aroma with some lemon and citron hops. Flavor is crisp bitterness, but still very mellow. Smooth velvety mouthfeel. This beer is an absolute pleasure, and I cant believe I havent tried it before.

nightrider (754) - encinitas, California, USA - OCT 26, 2010
Pour from a bomber gave a copper orange color with a modest white head. Aromas are not too apparent. Good in your mouth with a medium feel. Some nice caramel toffee malt in the middle followed up by the solid hop bite at the finish. Nice long bitterness remains on your tongue a bit on the drier side. Tasty IPA for sure and would buy more.
