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...

Bomber poured into glass. Big thanks to my sis for picking this up in San Diego for me. Hoppy with slightly sweet hints of honey, citrus and malts. Much easier to drink then I was anticipating. Another home run from Midnight Sun!

Bottle from South Bay Drugs: I must say, this is the second bottle in a row from Midnight Sun that opens with a huge burst of gas sound and vapors. Created a firm layer of patchy foam head while the liquid was a dark tea brown color with mahogany tint. As for the aroma, it has a barley wine scent and a hint of citrus, berries, brown sugar and maybe it’s just my nose, but I smell molasses syrup. The flavor is rich with sweet sugary malts that boast of brown sugar with the slightest hint of fruit in the distant background. This is really good experimental combination of ingredients.

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.

Bottle with Joe. Pours a hazy dark brown color. Med head and lacing. Awesome thick off white lacing. Aromas of brown sugar, copper, honey, malt. Taste was cascade hoppy with lemons, toffee, juniper berries, honey, and wood. Soft mouth and drinkable for 8 percent.

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.
