    They are different beers, different recipes. I wasn't crazy about Imperial IPA and definitely prefer Heelch O'Hops. Neither are really mind blowers, IMO, but Heelch O'Hops was enjoyable.

    Hey thanks for the info. I'm taking home a 4pack of the Heelch O'Hops tonight. Guess we'll see.

    Cheers.

    Hi Tony, thanks for you question. Heelch O' Hops is a different recipe than the Imperial IPA. We modified a good portion of the malt bill to create a drier finish as well as increasing some late kettle/dry hop additions for a more hop-forward nose. Hope you enjoy it!

    Steve,

    Has Imperial IPA been replaced,like the OP thought might be the case? I hope not, because I love that beer!

    Yes the IIPA is no longer produced, but we hope you can learn to love our Heelch!

    What a weird name for a beer. You guys are weird.

    I wouldn't know as I stopped purchasing any Anderson Valley beer after they sent a cease and desist letter to Fremont Brewing over Summer Solstice Ale.

    I'm looking forward to giving it a try. The description sounds like it will be awesome. At least now, I can quit looking for the Imperial IPA. Really appreciate you expanding to Georgia, and the quick reply.

    We'll take that as a compliment ;) Actually, most of our beer names are from our local dialect called "Boontling"...we're working to keep it alive. Check out the link below:
