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.

33 cl bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a small off-white head. Has a malty piney hoppy grapefruit aroma. Fruity malty hoppy bitter grapefruit and pine needles flavor. Has a warming malty very hoppy bitter grapefruit finish.

From a 330ml bottle on 18/3/2011. Batch no.174. Pours a cloudy dark orange with a fine good sized head. This has a huge, lovely aroma of citrus fruits and pine hops, along a lots of caramel malt. Flavour wise it has lost of sweet caramel, toffee, orange and peach, which is set off by some powerful grapefruity hop action, which never overwhelms. The palate is almost creamy. This is superbly balanced brew - a perfect mix of sweet and bitter. A fantastic creation from two great brewers.

This is the first IPA that I would describe the *aroma* as resiny! Itís like sticking your head in a barrel full of hops! Really fresh, pungent hops. Nice tan body with a good and lasting off-white head. The big surprise here is that the hops in the flavor arenít quite as strong as the aroma would suggest. Donít get me wrong, they are *very* strong, but itís different from some of the West Coast USA IPAs in that dimension. This is an extraordinarily well balanced IPA for as big as it is. The malt is a strong, sweet counter to the bitterness of the hops. Strong grapefruit *and* pine show up here with some citrus pith in the aftertaste. Leaves an almost stinging bitterness behind thatís washed away by the next sip, only to build upon the previous. I love that this is a collaborative mix of beers between 2 great breweries, but it seems like a natural formulation.

Aroma is intensely citric. Full hop taste, lots of fruit, alcohol is strong. the bitterness balances against the fruit in a way that Iíve not seen in any other 2IPA. Itís really remarkable and enjoyable. finish is very warming.

11.2 oz botte. It pours a orange/reddish copper with a foamy white head that holds and recedes slowly with some nice lacing. The smell is a bit of a letdown, Brewdog seems to never be prudent with their shipment of beers overseas and it is apparent here. That plus the fact that is is dominated by the turpentine scent of Hardcore IPA The flavor is a bit better It is mostly caramel with a hint of pine. It has an okay amount of bitterness, though the alcohol seems to be more apparent in the profile than the bitterness. It really is just a gimmicky label beer Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 11-21-2010 21:58:20

orange amber colour and hazy big grapefruit hop nose. absolutely gorgeous! sometimes bitter, sometimes sweet fruit pulp aromas. full body and fairly fizzy absolutely gorgeous beer! primary flavour is bitter grapefruit but has sufficient sweetness to be pretty balanced. one of my favourite brewdog beers.

suprchunk (2530) - Crestview, Florida, USA - MAR 11, 2011
Pours a dark amber with a small white head that fades fast, but leaves plenty of lacing. Big hop aroma. Big hop taste. Slight malt flavor, with a big malty taste. Bitter balanced nicely with the malt and hop flavor. Excellent beer. Too bad I donít have 5 more to drink. Good thing I donít have 5 more to drink.

Orange. Light head. Piney oily juicy hop aroma. Pretty thick and sticky, a little heavy-handed.

Tried on tap at the Sail and Anchor. Nose promises a lot with both hops and malts featuring. Murky light amber body, mainly lasting head. Pronounced bitterness in the taste, grapefruit and citrus. Overall this beer is in your face but that is how I like IIPAís

Dark red, amber pour with a fluffy off white head. Faded to a thick collar, good lace. Aroma was gorgeous. A great mix of sweet caramel malts and fruity hops jumped out of the glass. Light citrus. Flavors consisted of notes of lemon, pine, orange peel and a lingering smooth bitterness. Nice fruity bittersweet finish. Mouthfeel was full, carbonation medium to light. Great blended double dry hopped to the max.
