Notes / Commercial Description:
Brace yourself. Denogginizer is a massive Double IPA that's sublimely hopped with an over-the-top dosing of dank, sticky West Coast hops. With just enough malt backbone to keep this big, resinous hop monster in check, don't be afraid to lose your head to the Denogginizer.

Handsome golden amber brew with a fine-grained pile of foam in the Rodenbach goblet. Massive peach aroma. Sudsy southfeel adds to the pleasure.

This is surprisingly sweet with a woody cedar taste. Huge fruity flavors. Orange peel. The sugary finish is enlivened by tart apricot and a whiff of onions. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at a San Diego supermarket.

Hazy dark golden color with off-white head. Aroma has a really interesting hop profile with grapes and also some juicy orchard fruits with a hint of watermelon. Taste follows with the watermelon and grapes plus some orange. Medium to intense bitterness throughout. Medium body, quite smooth on the palate. I really enjoyed this one. It has a very different hop profile from other IPAs.

22 bomber in pint glass.

L: Pours a cloudy, gold with a 1-finger head. Average head retention and some nice lacing.

S: Strong citrus nose with pineapple being the most pronounced.

T/F: Definitely strong on the hops and a little malt to balance it out and add some sweetness. It is a 9.6% ABV, and you can taste some of that up front. Bitter finish, and maybe a little too much bitterness at the end. Medium body.

O: Solid DIPA.

Bottle poured into a Drake's Brewing Co pint glass

A: Pours golden orange amber with a frothy khaki head that settles to a firm layer and laces very nicely.

S: Tropical fruit and citrus, mango, pineapple, tangerine, grapefruit, pine, lightly toasted bready malt, and caramel/honey sweetness.

T: Massive juicy citrus and tropical fruit, tangerine, grapefruit, mango, pineapple, guava, apricot, some pine, a little peppery spice, lightly toasted bready malt, and caramel/honey sweetness. (Can get a bit cloyingly sweet.)

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation, holds its % very well.

O: Was finally able to get my hands on a fresh bottle of this one. My goodness, what a delicious monster! Absolutely fantastic hoppy kick to the dome.
