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.

Poured from a 330 ml bottle with a best by date of July, 2015. Aroma is hoppy but with an herbal, woodsy, pine resin hoppiness with some medium light grapefruit notes. Not much fruitiness. Medium light caramel malt notes with hints of cracker and toasted bread. Pours a cloudy copper orange with a small white head that recedes to a thin film that lingers. Medium light lacing and small legs. Flavor is fairly sweet with a bit of a syrupy character. Fairly strong caramel notes with some light cracker malt notes. Moderate bitterness with medium light hop flavor of pine resin, dank woods and light grapefruit. A bit of alcohol spice in the finish. Mouthfeel is medium full bodied and fairly sticky with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, an alright beer but way too sweet and malt for my tastes. Hop profile is geared towards old school hops instead of the new fruity ones.

Ik kan helaas niks over dit biertje schrijven omdat ik het in Nederland heb gedronken en geen info heb opgeschreven. Wat ik wel heb gedaan is een cijfer gegeven. Ik hoop dat ik hierdoor genoeg info voor mezelf heb creëert.

8.8.2014. Not so fresh bottle in Prague. Intense aroma of grapefruit and pine, and aromatic hops. Same dominates the taste: intense hop aroma with strong pine and grapefruit, also exotic fruits try to come up. Amazing DIPA.

Fantastica DIPA. On tap en 2d2dspuma. Mucho, mucho lúpulo. Mango, fruta de la pasión, cítricos, cuerpo denso y resinoso, persistente en boca. Buen lacing. Repetiremos!

Tap at Uiltje bar. Dark amber with white head. Massive sweet malts and sugar, resin, orange, grapefruit, marzipan, strawberry jam. Very very sweet. Full bodied with sticky feel. Very nice, but a bit too sweet for me.

Transparent amber beer. Plentiful but not lasting foam. Hop aroma, lychees, citrus, honey and a little alcohol. The taste is surprisingly malty, relatively low bitterness.

Barwa ciemno bursztynowa, piana średnia. Aromat z początku żywiczno- ziołowy w miarę ogrzewania zmierza bardziej w kierunku owoców tropikalnych, wychodzi też słodowość. W smaku jest bardzo przyjemna słodycz, a następnie szybka i krótka kontra od goryczki, która po zniwelowaniu słodyczy znika. Alkohol dobrze ukryty.. Może nie jest to najlepsze double IPA jakie piłem, ale z pewnością bardzo dobre.

Bottle @ home. Pours with a dark orange slightly hazy colour, small white frothy head. Aroma is slightly malty, heavy hoppy, with heavy tropical notes. Nicely balanced. Taste is medium sweet, medium bitter, slightly sour. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation.
