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...

This was simply a great IPA. The color was dark orange, similar to the color of a Maerzen with a thin white head. The aroma was of hops, and the taste followed through being hoppy, yet balanced. A great seasonal and definitely one worth trying.

What a crazy label, oh, so, colorful, with that mixed-up, Santa-hatted fish (salmon? trout?) But,let's open it it up and see what's inside...deep orange color, full head, big, blooming froth, leaving loads of lace. Aroma: ah, perfect hoppiness! Pine, and pineapple, apricot, peach, citrus aplenty, too, this is exactly what I like in an IPA aroma, oh, yeah! So, let us taste...Rrrrrr! Great, big bitterness, at first, blazing over the palate, huge hop attendance, but a large maltiness is also immediately noticed, and matches incredibly well with the massive hop content. Sharp. bitter, then just tasty fruit, very delicious, ...man, I'm sold on this one, and it's just now jumped to the top of my fave IPA list. Damn, this is dazzling, thank goodness it's a bomber, anything less, I would have felt cheated and teased. Yum, yum, and I'll say it again, yu-u-um!

Braudog (5583) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - OCT 8, 2002
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2012 Ho-hoppy aroma. Spicy front end to the taste that quickly settles into a nicely hopped pale ale flavor. Superb ... one of my favorite beers. Not sure that it can hang with the real big imperial IPAs, but this is damn good and drinkable

22 oz bottle. Darker than most doubles with a delightful off white dense and creamy head. Initial aroma is that of juniper berries. This IPA was smooth and flavorful and not as strident with the IBUs as some others. High drinkability and another winter favorite goes into the rotation.

Sledutah (4283) - Utah, USA - MAR 25, 2010
22oz bottle from Brewforia
Appearance: Clear dark copper with a nice off-white head that sticks around and tons of lacing in the glass
Aroma: Huge aroma of pine, malts and dark fruits
Taste: Pine resin and bittering in the finish
This is an awesome IIPA. Very well balanced with the hops and malts. I really enjoyed this beer. Wish I had another one.
The rating before this one says it is on tap at the Toronado. I’ll be in SF next week, I’ll make sure I try this on tap and edit this rating with my thoughts.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4831) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 19, 2010
Shipped to me by my wife on a trip to Portland. Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark red-brown color with a huge tan head that lingered and produced great lacing . The aroma was sweet pineapple, pine, resin, lemon, orange and caramel. The flavor was pineapple, pine, brown sugar, caramel and apple with a tart and moderately bitter base. The finish long, sweet and tangy with pineapple upsidedown cake, apple pie and cocoa lingering. Thick and full bodied. Incredible

I love this beer. It was probably my first imperial IPA and it is still one of the best. (Better out of the tap at Humpy's, which is where this rating is from.) Murky orange with a very sticky, off-white head. Very nice citrus hop nose. Strong malt profile underneath the grapefruit/pineapple fruit flavors. Excellent beer.

BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - JUN 24, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 12, 2003 Great looking 22 oz bottle with colorful artwork. Pours a beautiful cloudy deep amber with a tint of orange. Color reminds me of Rogues Dead Guy Ale. Nice impressive head, thick with good retention. Aroma is wonderful, piney, hoppy with the presence of a grapefruit citrusy aroma. More citrus than pine. This is a really nice ale and full of character and great flavors. The aroma is in your face and is perfectly in sync with a bitter smooth flavor dancing on your tongue. Possesses a nice malty underlining to hold everything together and balanced. This would be a great session beer. An exceptional ale that I completely enjoyed. One I wouldn't mind being anchored down in Anchorage with.
