COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
When the loveable "hopheads" at Humpy’s Great Alaskan Alehouse requested a winter version of alehouse favorite Sockeye Red IPA, our brewers instinctively spawned CoHoHo Imperial IPA.

CoHoHo begins with generous measures of pale two-row and specialty malts along with spirit-boosters like brown sugar and honey. Hefty doses of Cascade, Centennial and Simcoe hops beautifully balance that outrageous malt bill while juniper berries heighten the festive character of this exuberant beer.

Make Merry all Winter Long...

gyllenbock (4571) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 31, 2014
Bottle bought at City Beer in February 2014. A bit hazy amber with a medium head. Aroma of malt, hops, spices and fruit. Also some caramel. Similar taste. Fairly relaxed and easy to drink.

Poured from bomber. Dark caramel color in glass. Nose is thinner than expected, with a few malty notes. Taste is honey, and some spice. Chewy.

ericdevin (742) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - FEB 12, 2014
Draft at 16 Tons Taphouse, Eugene. Pours a orangish red, lots of off-white head. Nose slight, with some fruity and resinous character, malt, too. Body surprisingly slight, with a fruity and malty finish. Thought this would be a lot thicker and syrup-like, pleasantly surprised.

oh6gdx (20299) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 11, 2014
Bottled. Deep amber colour, mediumized slightly off-white foamy head. Aroma is fruity, caramelly with some floral, nectary and mild ripe fruity notes. Flavour is big time hops, caramel, toffee and a quite big bitterness o it. Still nicely balanced and very refreshing to drink.

Damico (2564) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 5, 2014
Pours dark unclear amber in color like iced tea with a beige head. Aroma brings malts, juniper in a spruce like fashion, and the sweetness from brown sugar and/or honey. Flavors bring hops mixed with sweet malts and honey blended well on a perfectly balanced body.

PhilJackson80 (308) - Oklahoma, USA - JAN 26, 2014
22 oz bomber. The beer pours to a medium amber color with a slightly off white medium head. The aroma is sweet with honey, resin, a little caramel. The taste is sweet up front with the honey & juniper berries prominent in the first taste, followed by a strong malt backbone & a medium bitter finish. Overall an a good DIPA.

hockeybeerguy (1972) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - JAN 25, 2014
Reviewed from notes. She pours a dark reddish color and leaves the same color body with slightly copper edges and a one finger white foamy head that dies immediately. Light lacing sticks to the glass. The smell has a floral malty hoppiness with some orange zest, and grapefruit and honey. The taste has a super malty covered hoppiness in the front and then backed up with a decent hoppy bitterness, long lingering citrus yet hoppy aftertaste, dry finish. On the palate, its about a medium, perhaps somewhat sessionable, and the carbonation seems to be a bit smoother than most DIPA’s, but I’m not complaining. Overall, this is not a bad DIPA, but I’m just surprised how smooth this one rolls around in my mouth to be a true DIPA. Its like its just too good to be true unless this is old.

On tap at Monk’s Kettle. Hazy super-dark amber (or brown) with a tan head. Intoxicating hop aroma; citrus, floral, pine, some raisin. Taste is great: resin, citrus, caramalt sweetness, moderately bitter finish. Very nice.
