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.

Pours amber/ruby with a bit of haze and some tan head. Very nice hoppy aroma with lots of citrus and pine. Fairly hoppy taste but well supported by a malt base that complements the hops nicely. Decent amount of bitterness on the finish, but not harsh. Very flavorful, pretty much exactly what I look for in an Imperial IPA.

The appearance is wonderful a golden color with an orange/red hue. It pours with a big fluffy off-white head that dissipates nicely. The aroma is full of hops and has a nice malty backbone that balance it nicely on the nose. The taste is great. The hops first hit the tongue followed closely by the malts. The bitterness tapers off to leave a wonderful flavor in your mouth.

A: The pour is a clear, dark copper color with a finger of white head and some spotty lacing. S: Some good citrus notes to the nose with a fair amount of grapefruit. Oily pine notes and a slight resinous quality. Definitely some caramel malt and hints of toffee. A touch of grass as it warms up a bit. T: Not as hoppy in terms of the flavor. Some good grapefruit and citrus peel notes, but a fair amount of booze and brown sugar. Caramel as well. Resinous pine provides a moderate level of bitterness. M: Medium to full in body with the carbonation being a bit on the low end of medium. O: Surprisingly decent for a BrewDog beer. The nose was certainly better than the flavor, however.

UPDATED: APR 3, 2011 WOW Extremely drinkable for a double IPA. Auburn reddish in color with a minimal white head. Nice lacing on my glass. Pretty balanced overall. A lot of carbonation throughout, Hops more evident on the back end. Front of my palate is dominated by seltzery carbonation and malt notes. Floral, crisp hop profile.

11.2oz bottle into my Orval glass...Pours a medium copper that is very muddy. A light tan head that rises about a finger but falls super fast to unveil a ring of head around the base, but decent lacing...At first the aroma is really nice, grapefruit and some awesome hops come through. Strangely the second and third whiffs are much hotter showing off a lot of pine and alcohol, especially as you go deeper. This strength is off at first but adds to a nice complexity in the aroma...The taste takes on the lesser qualities of the aroma coming off way to strong, tons of alcohol and pine show without a lot of complexity. A strong dipa, for sure, fairly successful European clone of an American beer. With there was a little sweetness and this could be excellent. Nice feeling, strong and sticky on the mouth. Pretty easy to drink after a few sips. A little too strong of a dipa, but worth giving a shot.

Cybercat (4637) - Georgia, USA - MAR 28, 2011
Pours a dark, clear, slightly mahogany-reddish amber with a thick, fairly persistent off-white head. Aroma is decently hoppy with an undertone of sweet apple and pear. Strongly hoppy flavor is fairly bitter but not nastily so and has a subtle fruity undertone with just a whisper of sweetness. Texture is rough and fizzy, leaving a fairly strong and persistent hoppy tingle.

From the bottle, pours a hazy brownish red with a thick foamy off-white head. Malty aroma, some alcohol. Taste is super malty, with a well balanced helping of hops. Not overly hoppy as the commercial deScription led me to believe. I wouldn’t know this is a 9.5% by taste, which could make it dangerous. Solid beer.
