American Double / Imperial IPA |  8.00% ABV

Availability: Fall

Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

85 IBU

A: ruby red, close to brown; 1 finger tan head that dissipated quickly; light lacing;

S: caramel malt, a bit of honey sweetness; pepper spiciness;

T: it's all caramel malt; no hops at all; at 85 IBUs, there should be hops somewhere, but it's not in the aroma or the taste and there's no bitterness at all;

M: a little syrupy; moderate carbonation;

O: I'm scoring this way below average and, in reading other reviews, I seem to be having an different experience; if I got the hop presence that other reviewers got, I would rate this higher; perhaps the bottle was old, but no date visible; considering how far from Alaska I am, I probably won't try this again; the odds of my getting a fresh bottle are not good;

On tap at Top Hops. Pours a dark brown with ruby hues and a 1/2 inch of head. Tons of lacing. Nice aroma of tropical fruits and citrus. Very juicy. Pineapple, mango, orange and maybe even a hint of lime. The taste is very similar to the aroma. Sweet tropical fruits with some bitter orange peel. Hints of pine. Some caramel malt flavor towards the finish. Pretty boozey. Oily mouthfeel. This one smelled great and the taste let me down slightly, but its still very good. Overall, worth grabbing again.
