From Drakes – Silver medal winner, Imperial India Pale Ale, 2009 Great American Beer Festival. A Double IPA, Denogginizer is a big bold beer hopped with an abundant amount of Simcoe and Columbus, with a touch of Amarillo and Cascade. Mashed with Munich and Crystal malt for color and flavor . . . and to balance out the hop assault.
