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!

bhightow01 (44) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 24, 2011
Dark copper-amber color with a medium head. Fresh hops aromas abount with notes of orange and pine bark and pine wood with some interesting honey sweetness. Pleasant, moderate bitterness with full hop and malt flavors are supported by a substantial body and a well-balanced alcohol character.

martjoobolut (3806) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 6, 2017
Bottle, bottled 13.12.2016 (from beergium). Pours clear amber with whiteish head. The head stays. Aroma is sweet, caramel, candy, alcohol, fruits. Flavor is sweet and bitter, caramel, pine, malt, citrus, some pineapple, pine. Finish is resin bitter and sweet with very prominent alcohol burn. Overall: not really refined, but drinkable, sweet caramelly boozy mess.

anstei (1717) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - FEB 5, 2017
Tap. Pours clear amber. Aroma is mostly tropical fruit, some pines, but really mostly fruity. Body is heavy, sweet and fruity, but rather flat too. Sweet sticky palate. A double IPA for sure and not the worst at it.

Habanero (4491) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK, DENMARK - JAN 23, 2017
Bottled. Pours slightly hazy deep golden with an average of-white head. Aroma of pine, citrus, grapefruit and floral too. Sweet flavor that ends up being more dry and bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. A very nice DIPA indeed. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

treign (31) - Bend, Oregon, USA - JAN 12, 2017
Pours a nice copper color from a growler. Aroma is piney, citrus, and lots of hops. Taste is nice balance of malty sweetness and a boat load of hops. Medium body with and nicely bitter finish. This is a nice DIPA.

djd07 (13483) - Houston, Texas, USA - DEC 29, 2016
Tap at GABF. Pours a clear copper with medium off white head leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is pine, floral, earth malt. Medium body, grass, pine, lingering resin finish, good.

luttonm (5547) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 18, 2016
Bottle in Seattle. Thick, sharp white lace with a heavy orange body with lots of floaties. Rich, strong aroma of resinous pine with a distilled pineapple note. Pretty balanced body, with plenty of carbonation, for its weight. A touch of astringent bitterness, but its actually quite nicely balanced in. Snappy finish: bitter, alcohol burn and flavor, some sweetness. Delicious.

Batavi (378) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - NOV 6, 2016
Fles gedeeld, uitgeschonken in proefglazen. Oranjekleurig, amber licht troebel, met een vinger dikke witte schuimkraag. Aroma's van graan, brood, perzik, grapefruit, sinaasappel, pijnboom, karamel, theebladeren. Aroma doet vermoeden dat het niet de meest verse fles is, wat belangrijk is voor een IPA. Het smaakpallet heeft accenten van karamel, graan, brood, bittere hoppige tonen van grapefruit en pijnboom. Fruitige toets van perzik en sinaasappel. Ook wat thee achtig, wat aangeeft dat deze fles niet super vers meer was. De carbonatie is medium, met een licht droge grapefruit bittere afdronk, met goed verborgen alcohol. Een aardige Imperial IPA, vers vermoedelijk stukken beter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

Lonick (1779) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 4, 2016
Keg @Salt Horse, Edinburgh (rating back-log some time over the last six months). Pours red/copper with a white head. Nose is grapefruit, star anise. Taste is fruity up front but then a big bitter finish.

chadski (116) - 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
