English: I Hardcore You is a 9.5% Imperial India Pale Ale, an international collaborative effort between 2 of Europe’s most rock ’n roll brewers. This beer is a blend of BrewDog’s Hardcore IPA and Mikkeller’s I Beat You. After the blending, the beer was then dry hopped a further twice. Making I Hardcore You a beer which has been dry hopped four times, or maybe even six times. We kinda lost count.

NOZE of syrupy malt and fruity hops magnificently balanced, Hops : tropical fruits (lechee, passion) resin (pine) Malts : Caramel, cereals, roasty (for an amber). Vanila, raisin, butterscotch. EYE Amber-orange, no foam, clear. no sparkling at all TONGUE, sweet and bitter, but IMO a bit too sweet, medium bitterness, mostly at the end. The imperial part and dry hopping does get a nice balance between hops and malts in the taste. THROAT medium to full body, creamy. average but good cargo. long sweet and bitter finish, really good; OVERALL Loved it, although a bit too sweet, the alcool is balanced, along with the different tastes, and the hops flavors are incredible. POURED from cold bottle in trapist glass (lost mine).

Fat på Mikkeller Stockholm.Bärnstensfärgad öl med vitt skum. Doften är ganska söt med karamell, frukt och viss alkoholsötma. Detta återkommer i smaken. Först i eftersmaken kommer det mer beska i form av tallbarr.

kevinator (887) - The Colony, Texas, USA - JUN 12, 2014
Quite good. Strong citrus hop aroma. Cloudy orange-copper color with a small head. Palate was impressive with weight, good carbonation and good distribution of separate flavors on the tongue. Up front is a strong, almost harsh, bitterness coupled with a caramel sweetness on the sides. This culminated in a nice blend at the finish. Great collaboration.

Spare small white head. Some lacing... and... unable to finish my rating because of the overwhelming sweetness. Harsh sweetness, unbalanced. Not my type.

Édesen indul, utána kicsit komlós lesz. Illata nagyon finom, hajba szép. Nekem nagyon tetszett.

Clear light amber, white head. Smells of sweet fruits (apricots, melon), light citrus, sweet malt and caramel. Very sweet taste with fruity notes again and caramel. Sweetest IPA I’ve ever had, light final hoppy bitterness.

venom666 (328) - Alicante, SPAIN - MAY 28, 2014
Clean copper color with a good creamy white, persistent head. Citrus traces on the aroma, also with grapefruit and orange, tropical fruit like pineapple and mango and malty caramel with honey touches. The taste is bitter, resinous and dry, check with caramel and honey touches,with shades of mango, pineapple and grapefruit. Good balanced, medium carbonated and sweet and bitter finish. Outstanding!
