Rascals Brewing Co. Wunderbar IPA (6%)

wunderbarCanned for freshness this might be, but it has an unfortunate aroma of tin can once it’s been poured, which is something I’ve not smelled before in modern canned beer.
As the beer warms, a boozy fruit salad smell starts to appear, with the metal thing lurking in the background.
Taking a swig, however, you find a very nice malt base, all Werthers Originals, toffee and lightly toasted brioche, and a good hoppy hit that gives you some sticky pine resin, marmalade, lemon zest and herbal leaves.
All that and a finish that’s bitter and sticky and warm with booze, even if that can smell is still lingering into the last mouthful.
