COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
English: I Hardcore You is a 9.5% Imperial India Pale Ale, an international collaborative effort between 2 of Europeís most rock ín roll brewers. This beer is a blend of BrewDogís Hardcore IPA and Mikkellerís 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.

birderbeerer (112) - Virginia, USA - FEB 6, 2011
Pours a amber/copper in color. White and creamy two finger head. Some decent lacing. Aroma is huge hops and sweetness. Hops are floral and grapefruity with some tropical scents, and the sweetness is a big malt load--caramel, butter, toffee, tea. Huge, sweet, hoppy aroma. Beautiful. Taste follows the aroma. A big, balanced double ipa. Huge hops with huge malts. This is actually one of the better balanced ipas Iíve had because neither the hops nor the malt overpower the other. Both co-exist happily and largely. If anything, I would give the Smell a 4.6 and the Taste a 4.5. Dry aftertaste with a little hop stickiness. Great beer. Itís worth $7 to try, but I donít think itís worth having again at that price.

bottle at Beer Temple in Amsterdam. Beautiful amber beer with perfectly balanced flavors. One of the best of the style.

mrmartin (707) - New York, New York, USA - FEB 2, 2011
Deep copper with quickly disappearing big white head. Very nice lacing. Citrusy nose. With hint of toasty malt. Delicate dark fruit. Citrusy hops. A little earthy and a little scotchy. Light to medium body. lingering bitter finish. Nice beer but not worth the premium I paid for it.

12 oz draft at brick store pub. Pours a beautiful orange color with a decent white head. Incredible hop aroma. taste of grapefruite, pine, yet creamy at the same time. A great beer

NosirIwont (2006) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - JAN 29, 2011
Bottle. Pours a hazy amber/orange with a off-white/yellowish head. Sweetish, hoppy aroma. Citrus notes; grape fruit. Malty backbone. Quite sweet, malty flavour with bitter hops. Finish is bitter (almost a liquorice bitterness) and malty. Lingering bitterness with grassy notes in the background. Nice. 29.01.11.

obguthr (4082) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JAN 20, 2011
Juicy apricot, rosehip, and tangerine nose. Cloudy copper, medium yellow head, good lacing. Intensely flavorful, fruity, and hoppy, almost to a fault. Full body, mouthfeel is frothy. Apricot is dominant, finish is overripe oranges. Rosehip notes are abundant. Alcohol is tasteful. It isnít cloying, but the hopping is so extreme that it seems to cease to be beery. These arenít necessarily bitter hops, but insanely fruity. With better balance, this could be the perfect DIPA.

Copper pour iwith a tan head. Aroma is hoppy. Lots of hops! Taste is nicely balanced. Hops are fruity, they meld nice with the malt backbone. It leaves a nice aftertaste. This is one of those beers that you enjoy the aftertaste so much, you hesitate to take another drink. A fine quality in my opinion. Nice lacing. This beer is worth its price.

arkurzynski (1591) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 16, 2011
Deep amber in color. Heavy carbonation with off-white, fluffy head. Solid grapefruit/piney hops with some citrus. Flavor is a huge malt backbone. Caramel, toasted malts, and even some roast on the finish. Thick and sticky. On the line between excellent and too much. Background bitterness not quite enough to balance out. Very good, deep.
