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...

22 oz. bottle from the Best Damn Beer Store. I’m guessing it’s from this past winter, based on the label and intended season. Oh well. Pours a clear amber with a moderate off-white head that forms a small lasting cap and laces the glass. Notes of tea, lemon citrus, caramel, sugars, earth, honey, and pine. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a smooth, sweet, bitter mouthfeel. Has held up pretty well. Now I’m wondering how good it is fresh.

Flarra. Doft kraftigt av blött halm å jordkällare Liiiite Madeira. Smak Ja jävlar precis som doften Vilket är mycket ovanligt.. Dock kommer vindruvor in i bilden å ganska kort eftersmak som liknar när man svalt ett glas svagdricka. Annorlunda å återigen högklassisk Amerikansk Dipa. Köp köp köp

Flaska. Kraftig maltdoft o här finns julmust o kryddigheter. Amerikansk julöl när den är som bäst. Smaken som doften. Bred balanserad här finns toner av honung samt en mycket mycket bra beska. Fasen vad de kan amerikanarna. Gott gotteligottgott!!

Shared bomber poured to snifters, showing a fairly clear, orangey gold color, with a modest layer of off white foam, and spotty lacing. The nose was dank & earthy, with a bit of citrus & resin, and some mellowing, honey sweetness. Medium bodied, with average carbonation, the taste included a moderate, earthy & rindy, hop bitterness, some gin-like character, and fair alcohol presence undoubtedly amped by the added fermentables. Not all that "imperial", but a decent enough IPA.

dslam (98) - surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 4, 2014
Poured from a 22 oz bottle. Very good aroma and pours with a good amount of off white head. I cannot put my finger on the qualities I would expect from an imperial IPA. The beer looks a little murky, I think I got the bottom half of the bottle. I can see a fair amount of carbonation. Has a certain amount of body on the first sip, but, the taste disappears fairly quickly off the pallet.

"imperial ipa with brown sugar, honey and juniper berries. 85 ibu. darker in appearance and better balanced, though the hops are lively and fresh. bottled 9/2010. honey is the main player, then brown sugar, with just a hint of the berries coming through. nice beer, but nice don’t cut it at $12 a pop."

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.

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.
