Drake's Denogginizer 22oz Bottle is a big, bold, Imperial IPA. Hopped with an abundant amount of Simcoe & Amarillo, with a touch of Ahtanum & Chinook. Mashed with Crystal malt and Caramalt for color and flavor, and to help balance out the hop assault. Denog is our most powerful regular offering, at a whopping 10% ABV and 100 IBUs! History: Denogginizer was first brewed in 2004 by Rodger Davis & Josh Miner. The name came about due to a little issue during fermentation..... The brewers came in one morning to find that their new double IPA had developed a serious problem. The huge amount of hops in the fermenter (dry-hopped) had clogged the pressure relief valve (PRV) of the tank. This caused a rather worrisome pressure increase. Something had to done ... and fast. After a quick roshambo with Rodger, Josh found himself on a ladder at the top of the tank preparing to pop the tri-clover clamp to release the PRV..... and the pressure. The resulting lift-off of the PRV (and subsequent ricochets) cause Rodger to crack the wry remark (as only Rodger can) .... that Josh just about got "de-noggin-ized". So, of course, after this experience they had the name for their new Imperial IPA! (No brewers were hurt creating this brand name.) The story has a great ending though.... in 2005, Drake's Denogginizer was chosen as the best beer at The Bistro Double IPA Festival. It was all worth it... (eh, Josh?). -- The Drake
