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.

This IIPA was amazing, I hardcore it!!! Full hop flavor with very little bitterness and great hop finish. My palate was happy to drink this.

33 cl bottle. Pours a tiny bubbled, lasting pale beige head, over a cloudy dark amber (SRM 10) body....nose is pine, pineapple, grapefruit peel, toffee/caramel....taste pine, grapefruit, caramel/toffee, honey, pineapple, licorice, finishing with a lingering hop bitterness, with a touch of citrus peel....mouth feel is medium and slightly sticky, alcohol well hidden, carbonation makes it creamy. This is a well balanced delicious IIPA. The hops add tremendous complexity, without being overwhelmingly bitter. The malts add a nice balance. BJCP 8/3/15/4/8

Bottle from Sam’s, Durham. Expecting a particularly aggressive DIPA of the face-wrecking hop assault (which I dig, don’t get me wrong), I was pleasantly surprised by how distinctive, elegant, and balanced this beer was. A deep lustrous orange pour with a thick, sizable, creamy head, the appearance pleased from the git-go. Nose was extremely pungent, with loads of citrus rind and dry hops. Nice mouthfeel, not too sticky or boozy. The taste was impressive too, adding to the notes in the nose a very clean, spritzy champers element that complemented the dry fruity qualities really nicely. Price makes it unlikely I’ll have this one too frequently, but it’s damn good.

UPDATED: DEC 21, 2010 33cl bottle. Pours hazy orange with a big off white creamy head. Long lasting foam. Aroma is stunning: hoppy floral and spicy notes are sorrounded by a mango sweetness. Lots of yeasty and malty notes. Taste is great: lots of complexity with a spicy bitterness softened by a sweet caramel sensation. Lots of grassy-spicy flavors. Alcohol is almost unperceivable. Body is full with medium carbonation. Overall, a great IIPA.

Pours a deep shade of amber with a white head. Aroma is primarily of grapefruits and pine needles. Flavor is not as pungent on the tongue as the the smell is in the nose.

Dfonorow (1445) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 17, 2010
Pours dark amber with a a large white head that has a decent amount of staying power. Aroma is of grapefruits, honey, pine needles, and a slight amount of sweet caramel/toffee. Flavor is quite mellow and includes all the normal notes found in an IPA; flowers, spice, grapefruit, etc. A lot less powerful hop-wise than I expected from an imperial ipa.

Tasted from a 11.2 oz bottle purchased in Fort Collins, colorado. Mildly hazy orange appearance. Strong floral aroma that’s tasty. Strong floral flavor with actually a great pale sweet malt flavor. Finish is a sweet malty, hoppiness that really covers up the alcohol.

Bottle. Love the bottle and the artwork here. Pours a deep amber body with a white head big old head and solid retention and glass lacing. A dry spruce tone, earth, not so much herbal as its bitter and resinous. Tannic note, and very bitter grapefruit. Up front a bit sweet a mostly grapefruit body with a hint of cane like sugar notes overlying the hops. Light grass notes and a mild warming. I’m not usually a fan of foreign made IPA’s hell i dont even like them on the east coast for the most part, but a fine job here.

Tap. Cloudy dark honey brown. Aroma of piney hops, a bit cat pee, grapefruit. Taste is complex and thick with citrus and pine and i feel something that feels like coffee. This is really good, and in my book the way a dipa should be. Which in a way also makes it a bit of a disappointment.

11.2 oz. bottle from Grape & Gourmet. Hazy dark orange pour with a bubbly off-white head. Killer aroma of grapefruit, tangerine, and caramel with grassy notes. The hop flavor is big and bold with dominating grapefruit rind and pineapple yet is surprisingly well balanced. Some detectable warmth from the alcohol. Nearly a perfect DIPA and worth every penny of the $7 for this bottle.
