Bottle, poured into Ommegang Tulip
A. nice golden with amber glow 1mm bubbly head
S. honey malt, floral hops, bubble gum (no joke, like bazooka joe bubble gum)
T. Rose hips and muted spicy hops with dry bitterness in backend.
M. Medium, but carbonation is too high and detracts from the flavors
O. Average Ipa, would most likely pass this up if it was alocal on the shelves unless priced very reasonably.

A - Hop Wrangler pours with a short but lasting off-white head that caps the clear deep amber colored beer all the while, shrouding the glass in wispy lace.
S - Juicy Big League Chew bubblegum and clove spice give Hop Wrangler a bold presence of Belgian yeast while ripe grapefruit's complimentary citrus comes straight from the American hops. With all that's going on in the aroma, it's easy to gloss over the wonderful layer of biscuity malt laying the ground work!
T - Completely unexpected, the flavor is bursting with resiny, pine-laded American hops with a grapefruit finish that ever-so-briefly touches on the aromatic Belgian characteristics but retains it's malty base.
M - While Hop Wrangler is carbonated; I can see bubbles, there is a head, it feels flat in the mouth with a slickness that glides right across the tongue starting almost completely empty but finishing with a nice dry bitterness that lingers with some strength.
O - The strong aromatics call out Belgian yeast but the decidedly American hop profile overcomes and makes the flavor it's own, both aspects working together with some harmony. It's in the feel that this beer falls somewhat flat - literally. It's hard to peg but even though this beer is carbonated, it doesn't feel like it so even though the direction in which Hop Wrangler is headed is a fantastic one, it's not quite ready to ride off into the sunset just yet.
