“Heelch O’ Hops” to replace Imperial IPA as year-round offering
Boonville, CA (October 24, 2012) Anderson Valley Brewing Company announced today that it will be adding a new Double India Pale Ale to its Mendonesia™ series of beers. “Heelch O’ Hops” (meaning “a whole lot” in Boontling) will replace the brewery’s current Imperial IPA and will become available nationwide in draft, 22oz. single bottles and 12oz. four-pack bottles beginning in October.
Brewed with copious amounts of Columbus, Chinook, and Cascade hop varieties, Heelch O’ Hops has a palate pleasing bitterness that is artfully balanced with a full-bodied malt foundation. Weighing in at 100 IBU’s and 8.7% ABV, this Double IPA features bigger hop aromas and a slightly different hop flavor with a much drier finish compared to its predecessor. “We’ve been working on this recipe for quite some time,” says Brewmaster Fal Allen. “By adjusting the malt bill and experimenting with different combinations of dry hopping and late kettle hop additions, we finally found a balance that we’re really happy with, and we hope our fans will enjoy it too.”
