Cloudy copper, very carbonated, producing large heads with every bottle. Smell is sweet and caramely, with familiar tones of Belgian-style yeast. Flavor is drier than you would expect from a Belgian styled IPA. Has a metallic twang, and a sizable hop bitterness. Versus the style, it is what I would expect a Belgian IPA to be. The beer feel think, but the champagne-like carbonation really cuts the underlying viscosity. Definitely worth checking out, maybe the best beer from Iowa I have had to this point.

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."
