Hopped and Bothered; Drake's Denogginizer DIPA
Drake's -- Denogginizer Imperial Double IPA
Alcohol content 9.75%. The scent from the very first waft is rich and thick with hops. Very heavy and full of complex pine and citrus flavors. I got some orange rind and caramel in there. A hint of biscuit. The first sip is hop heaven. Sweet. Rich. Silky. Filled with a noticeable hop bitterness that is quickly overtaken by tropical fruit. Mango. Papaya. Pineapple. The finish is clean and dry, highlighting an already amazing experience.
Buy if: you can find it. We sold out instantly.
Overall: I'm sold on Imperial IPAs. The amount of flavor packed into this particular bottle is simply impressive.
