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...

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.

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.
