The head erupts from the golden body. It is white md rocky and very slowly dissolves into a scattered lacing.
Very nice floral hop aromas with hints of Belgian yeast and a lightly sweet malty backbone. Upon further review the hoops aromas are also a touch fruity.
The flavor is certainly more on the American side up front packing a nice hop punch of citrus fruit and flowers with the malt and yeast arriving towards the finish.
Much fuller in body than its Belgian brewed counterparts with massive carbonation and a puckering finish.
While perhaps not spot on compared to a Belgian brewed IPA, Peace Tree does a great job with this and the generous flavor character is very desirable.

Peacetree Hop Wrangler India Pale Ale 3. Brewed and bottled by Peace Tree Brewing Company, Knoxville, Iowa. (So now we know. The canned kolsch is made at Cold Spring, the bottles are done in Iowa.) Leave sediment in bottle (too late). Serve a 8 C (48 F). Can't find ABV.
Very attractive, bright crimson coloring, lush, creamy head, long lasting and lace-leaving.
Aroma: an intriguing blend of funk and fruit. Apple, cherry, and berry on top, with a Belgian yeast twist. Some bready malt aromatics, too. Very nice.
Taste: hop forward, yeast-forward, and not malt shy. Belgian yeast flavor takes over, standing above the hop bitterness, which is rather low. Getting the feeling of a Belgian amber ale, more than an IPA. Although the bitterness is low, it does remind me of other Belgian IPAs, and I feel I could do a session with this. Toss back one after another, and never get too tired.
Hey, what's the label say? "Hop Wrangler 3 is a multi-national take on the classic india pale ale, which is known for it's intense hop bitterness, flavor, and aroma. We use American, English and Belgian malts for flavor, body and color. This brew includes six hop additions of American and English hops, one each in the mash and first wort, three in the boil and finally a dry hop addition in the fermenter. It is finished with Belgian yeast which develops esters that complement the bouquet of hops aromas."
