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...

trujahwarrior (506) - Monroe, Washington, USA - NOV 16, 2013
Bomber half off on clearance must be about 11 months old. Pours a hazy copper color with a thick off white head that leaves great lacing. Smells of honey, pine, grapefruit and caramel. Tastes of all the same things in the smell. Mouthfeel is slick and oily with good carbonation and a dry finish. It held up pretty well for being almost a year old. Hops are still pretty noticeable but would like to see how it tastes fresh. Might rerate this when this years batch comes out.

Old bottle purchased from the brewery over 8 months from when it was brewed. Horrible malty stale DIPA crap. Don’t sell old IPA!

A really sweet smelling beer with honey and brown sugar dominating the nose. Good lacing on this pour even though the head is insignificant. A clear and dark color almost like a winter ale. Malts give the color. Taste is dominated by honey and molasses reminiscent of a malty ale and not really an IPA. In fact not much of hops at all. Very smooth palate but also a little boring since I was expecting an IPA. Not a bad drink if thought to be a regular old pale ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

In the glass it has a dark copper color. The aroma has some toasted hops and malts. It also has a touch of sweetness. Taste has some piney hops up front with some citrus. On the backend there is some sweetness like caramel. Good finish.

superspak (2455) - Michigan, USA - FEB 2, 2013
22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours crystal clear reddish copper color with a nice 2 finger dense cream colored head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of orange zest, grapefruit, orange rind, pineapple, lemon zest, juniper, floral, light pine, caramel, honey, brown sugar, grass, and herbal earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of malt and hop notes. Taste of big orange zest, grapefruit, pineapple, orange rind, lemon zest, juniper, floral, grass, caramel, honey, brown sugar, pine, and herbal earthiness. Moderate amount of citrus bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, citrus zest, pineapple, juniper, floral, caramel, honey, brown sugar, grass, pine, and herbal earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice flavor balance and complexity; with a great balance of malt/hoppiness; with zero cloying flavors present after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a creamy and fairly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an excellent DIPA. Very nice hop and malt flavor balance and complexity; and very smooth to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.
