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.

zizzybalubba (1409) - Elizabeth City, North Carolina, USA - DEC 13, 2010
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.

bluebetty (1019) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 12, 2010
Bottle. Pours a golden copper with decent cream coloured head. Slightly hazy but a good looking brew. Huge aromas of grapefruit and pine needles. Not much else but I am not complaining. Initial flavours of sweet malt followed by good resiny hope bitterness on the finish. Fullish mouthfeel. Good beer.

Cavie (3793) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - DEC 11, 2010
Bottle courtesy bu11zeye. Murky brown gold color with a small amount of white bubbles. Very large hop aroma. Pine, sap, earth spice and more hops on the nose. Flavor is very piney, reminds me of Douglas Fir, very nice. Finishes pine needles, some dry notes with a big amount of spice.

Maybe I have reached my limit with imperial IPA’s but this just tasted a muddle with no floral, citrus or woodsy hop flavors to be seen. Plenty of strong good malt taste but if I wanted a strong ale I would have ordered one.

Drake (8503) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - DEC 7, 2010
Wow... what a burst of grapefruit and mango as soon as the bottle is open. Bottle from Wine Warehouse in Charlottesville, VA. Pours a clear red color with a medium sized tight creamy head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of big, huge resiny hop notes with tropical notes and citrus. Some toffeeish malts are lingering in there also. The taste is extremely bitter resinous hops with notes of woody, earthy, resiny notes, pine, tropical fruits, citrus, mint. Some faint malty notes in there too. Medium-full bodied with a lingering hop burn and a bit of hear. This is an homage to hops and as such loses all balance, but is nevertheless a decent beer. My burps now taste like mouthwash.

dyetube (1181) - McKinney, Texas, USA - DEC 6, 2010
This beer pours. Medium amber with a thin white head. The aroma is pine, lemon zest, bread, and closets. The mouthfeel is sticky and bitter with a medium body. God her. Cheers!
