Brewdog – Restorative Beverage for Invalids and Convalescents – 8.5%
From Brewdog comes an IPA named Restorative Beverage for Invalids and Convalescents at 8.5%. A fragrant and spiced smelling brew on decapping. Bags of citrus hop aroma and mango. The pour is not too amazing, the froth and head is aerated and initially appears overcarbonated, dropping to a thin skim quickly. The taste is not too bitter, and doesn’t focus on the malt much either. The focus is clearly pointed towards the hops! It’s a nice and safe IPA style with a slight hint of yeasty spice. Not groundbreaking, but a nice American Style IPA that hides the alcohol well.
