Denogginizer Double IPA

Lose Your Head

Denogginizer Double IPA is a monster of a beer made with a colossal mash of malted barley and finished with an irresponsible amount of West Coast hops. An epic tsunami of dank chewy hops cuts like a guillotine through the warm embrace of velvety smooth sweetness. Some people may think we’ve lost our heads. We’re inclined to agree.

In January of 2004, Drake’s brewers designed a beer to turn heads. They crafted a massive Imperial IPA with a full body, smooth malt backbone, and an utterly irresponsible amount of pungent, dank, American hops. After three weeks in the tanks and one minor incident involving a pressure relief valve jettisoning across the cellar and nearly decapitating a brewer, a beer, and its name, were born. Citizens be warned, even without a tank valve careening at high speeds, Denogginizer has been know to blow a few minds.
