Secured a bottle of Hop Harvest from JayT and had it for lunch today. I was expecting a deep, earthy hoppy beer similar to the BIG A but I was surprised how easy drinking this beer turned out to be. The initial sip had a nice rich but sweet hoppy character to it, that last through the entire pour. Very well balanced, a great beer to share with friends, biut I didn't want to share this beer with anyone after my first taste. It had an almost smoky taste to it as well - not sure if that's JT's doing, but it was one of my favorite beers I have tried this year. Keep up the good work and thanks for the free sample. allen, Dogfish

My first beer review on the Treo. This is a good hoppy beer. It may not be a double but its bigger than a regular IPA. I would put it up for its hoppiness but the Big A bombers comes closer to an DIPA or IIPA. The malt character almost makes it a dry or wet hopped ale or lager because its smooth tasting while having that hoppy edge. Maybe the best of both worlds since its balanced and very drinkable.
