Alberta craft brewer, Wild Rose Brewery, is pleased to announce the launch of their latest Seasonal Release Wild Rose HOP SMASHED IN Belgian Style IPA on April 12, 2012. This unfiltered amber coloured ale is a unique version of an IPA. A generous amount of hops are "smashed" into the brew along with a specially selected Belgian yeast, to provide notes of fruit and spice. Unique in taste and aroma, this brew brings the best of Belgian and North American brewing traditions together.
