COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

marcus (6359) - Sacramento, California, USA - NOV 28, 2010
Bottle from Healthy Spirits. Pours reddish copper with a decent beige head and a marvelous pine and citrus aroma. There is an excellent caramel malt flavor that starts sweet, but quickly succumbs to bitterness from the massive hopping. Very tasty.

hopscotch (8890) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 28, 2010
Bottle… Cloudy apricot-colored ale with a mid-sized, fluffy, off-white head. Fantastic retention. The bouquet offers fuzzy and tropical fruits alongside a peppery, musky, funky hop medley. Full-bodied and astringent with soft carbonation. The flavor presents hearty caramel malts flanked by fruity hop flavor and bitterness. Finishes bitter, coarse and grassy. Bottle courtesy of plovmand!

dbarnold (1126) - Bethesda, Maryland, USA - NOV 27, 2010
Wow, now that’s a bold hop flavor. Pours amber color with off-white head. Hops hops and more hops, really all over. I guess it’s all the dry-hopping? Really kind of knocks you out with hops, but lacks the flavor complexity of say, Stone Ruination. Worth trying if you are a hop lover.

chicagodri (1683) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 27, 2010
Bottle. Pours hazy orange with thick off white head. Aroma of citrus hops, slight pine. Nice smooth hop flavor with malt backing. Fairly easy to drink Double IPA, 9.5% ABV well hidden. Nicely done.

Pwn3d (1962) - Manhattan, New York, USA - NOV 24, 2010
Bottle. Intense hop character.. Almost vinegary, apple, spruce. Color is dark amber with a orangish brown hue. Overall, bold sipper with a rich hop flavor.

NoiZe (2324) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - NOV 24, 2010
Dark orange colored brew. Heavy hopped aroma, exotic fruits. Also lots of hops, grape, pine, citrus flavors. Nice iipa, good hopbitterness.

bhensonb (10802) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 23, 2010
Bottle from Beverages 4 Less in Santee, CA. Pours hazy orange amber with a foamy beige head. Quite an incredible load of hops in the nose. There’s some mild roast malt under that. Med + body. Flavor is very hoppy, but there’s a burnt sugar/caramel backbone. It’s almost astringent. Turns a bit towards sea weed or some sort of veg. The caramel is consistent, but the bitter changes around. Interesting stuff.

maltandhops (50) - Paris, FRANCE - NOV 23, 2010
Lovely nose with exotic fruits from the hops. The palate is dissapointing - very bitter and to rich. I don’t see the point in these beers that are so unbalanced they are not drinkable - must be a male competition thing.

ndon (857) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2010
Bottle at Pumphouse bar, Sydney. WOW!! This was fantastic! Spent far too much on it, but was pretty much worth it to try this. I really enjoyed the Hardcore, but this just gave it that extra edge. Plenty of big hops, creating both floral and fruity aromas, and the taste was much the same but with the addition of plenty of pine. Nice bitter finish followed.

Svesse (6044) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - NOV 20, 2010
(Bottle, Bishop’s Arms Folkungagatan, Stockholm, 19 Nov 2010) Reddish amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Hoppy, fruity nose with notes of pine needles, resin, blood orange, grapefruit and black-currant. Fruity, hoppy taste with black-currant, pine needles, resin, grapefruit, caramel and a impressive piney/resinous bitterness in the finish. Solid malt foundation to support all the hops. Almost full body, fairly sweet (but without going overboard). Lovely beer with an impressive hop presence.
