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...

Lucky boy that I am, there’s a store 40 minutes away in ny that carries midnight sun. My first sample of that brewery offerings and a nice one. Aroma is a none woodsy rosemary and other garden herbs with some pine and sweet biscuit in there. The flavor is supremely earthy in the deep wilderness, surrounded by old growth and smelling the fresh and damp fallen leaves as you walk kind of way. There is a brightness in the finish that just makes this a palate cleansing pleasure and leaves a taste of green wood and wet simcoe. The mouthfeel knows it’s solid and so will you. A seemingly confidently brewed beer that I am so glad to have tried and enjoyed. Thank you Midnight Sun. 2012 22 oz.

A-- Poured a dark golden brown.Medium pour resulted in a two finger light brown head. Very fluffy head, left all sorts of lacing through drinking. Light on carbonation. S-- Honey and juniper berries jump right out. Get a bit of brown sugar candied grapefruit. Very holiday smelling beer. T-- Not a huge taste but get juniper, Carmel and a bit of grapefruit. M-- Get a lot of pine in the mouth, feels very spice like as well. Finishes dry and crisp due to the honey with a little pine finish as well. There is a little bit of brown sugar sweetness in the front. D-- Quite different I thought with the junpier and honey but it worked well.

Interesting highly malty double IPA. May be a bit old since its a winter seasonal. High sweetness with what appears to be the taste of residual sugars, but heavy citrus hops and fruityness cut the sweetness. Nice brew.

Clear dark brown beer. Short lived frothy white head. Fresh pineapple hop nose. Semi soft and semi dry palate. Fresh sweetish hops - pineapple and a little peach. Sweetness from the brown sugar and some fruitiness which must come from the juniper I guess. Finishes fresh and with a few minerals. Lovely sweet IPA.

Bottle: Poured a deep murky copper with a creamy off white head. Aroma is piney hops, sticky fruits, and malts. Taste is similar with nice up front hops citrus/piney, with nice malty balance and sticky fruit finish.

(Bottle) Pours dark copper red with a sand colored head. The aroma holds subtle hop notes of citrus (orange and grapefruits) flowers, dried herbs and wood alongside notes of cookies, caramel, brown sugar and hints od honey. Maybe some tartness from the juniper berries. Touch of alcohol. The flavour is light sweet, medium bitter and tiny acidic with balanced notes of citrus, resinous wood, herbs, flowers and green fruits. Cookies, dry caramel, brown sugar and touch of dried fruits. The mouthfeel is round, smooth and velvety with a soft and fancy carbonation. Balanced cookie-like malt and citric/resinous/floral hop finish with a sting of alcohol. Medium bodied.
