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.

Draught at Bishops Arms, Järntorget. Hazy amber beer with a nice beige head. Hoppy perfume aroma, floral, citrus and with pine needles. Huge hoppy perfume flavor, a bit rough and I would have hoped for a bit more complexity.

mjs (6534) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 8, 2011
(Bottle, 0.33 l, at Kaisla, Helsinki, 20110407) The beer poured amber and quite clear. Its head was quite large and white. The very hoppy aroma had pine, mildly cirticness and also sweetness. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were hops, malts, citricness, fruitiness, quite mild sweetness and pretty intense bitterness. Aftertaste was bitter. Quite nice double IPA - especially because it wasn’t excessively sweet.

murphym45 (769) - New York, New York, USA - APR 6, 2011
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.

brokensail (16057) - Dublin, California, USA - MAR 31, 2011
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.
