Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.60%

Availability: Spring

Notes / Commercial Description:
H2P is a revamped iteration of the HTP IPA we have done in the past. For H2P this year I changed the recipe from the two previous batches, along with the hops and hop schedule. The past two batches featured Zythos and 7 C's opposite Simcoe. This year and in the future, it will be a single-hop Simcoe IPA. Since it's technically a different beer, but the soul of it is still the same, we are going to call this H2P going forward. As a former Pitt student, I know the Pitt faithful use HTP and H2P interchangeably, so it seemed fitting to change the "T" to a "2" for version 2.0. Inspired by the IPAs I fell in love with in California and deepened my college experience in South Oakland, H2P is a 8.0% west coast-style IPA brewed with four kinds of malted barley and a ridiculous amount of Simcoe hops with five kettle additions and two dry hops. The nose of the beer is rich in pine and fruit notes, with hints passion fruit, apricot, along with woodsy and floral undertones. Medium bodied, this beer starts with a mildly bitter taste that gives way to the pine and fruit notes found in the nose on the back end. H2P is a bright and crisp IPA that was designed to be highly drinkable, exceedingly flavorful and aromatic, but without being abrasively bitter. As production allows, we hope to continue to provide this beer to the Pittsburgh market and the Pitt faithful each year for Pittsburgh Craft Beer Week.

The beer comes a light haze, good clarity, light gold.

The aroma offers light biscuity sweetness, apricot, pineapple, orange marmalade, hints of pine.

The flavor follows with that pineapple, orange marmalade, onto medium biscuity sweetness, pine lingering on at the mid-palate and the beer simply dries out beautifully.

This beer is supremely drinkable for a DIPA. A prototype for well executed West Coast DIPAs.

Poured a clear golden yellow color with a white head
Definitely smelled the Simcoe hops, pine, and a bit of tropical fruit
Taste was on point for a single hop IPA, pine, hops, hints of grapefruit, orange, and citrus
A nice and crisp IPA - Medium body with a nice amount of bitterness
A great summertime beer!
