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.

330 ml bottle @ Patricks. Deep red body with a diminishing big off-white head. Delicious aroma of different citric fruit, pine, malt and caramel, really complex and wonderful. Flavor is sweet but balanced malty, some caramel, strong citric fruit, pine and really bitter. Soft, sweet maltflavor and almost a bit rough bitterness makes a lovely combo and becomes rally nice integrated with fruit and a little hint of warming alcohol. Aftertaste is almost like forever with caramel, fruit and bitterness. Very well made.

medium orange with large white head. nose of herbal and citrus hops with touches of alcohol and malt. firm bitterness before a solid herbal and citrus hop flavor with a touch of munich or low crystal malt with alcohol providing nice depth. english esters are definitely strongly present. the residual sweetness in this is quite low for the style resulting in a very drinkable brew. overall it is a very well crafted double ipa, that even though aged longer than desired it is a great example that would likely be a classic example if fresh

Bottle 330ml @ Patricks Pub og Restaurant, Kristiansand
Pours cloudy dark amber with off-white head. Aroma has notes of spices, pine, grass and fruity hops. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter with an average bitter well rounded alcohol finish. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

A nice blend of two IPAs. I wish this came in a 22 instead of a 12, it was pretty solid.

Bottle, at Patricks, shared by Meilby. An unclear, dark amber to copper colored beer with a finger-thick, diminishing, off-white head. Some alcohol initially, then the hops kick in with lots of pine cones and citrus peel. Caramel notes and mats too. The flavor is both sweet and bitter, mostly on the hoppy side. Pine cones and resins subdue the malty sweetness. It’s full-bodied, warming and nicely carbonated, with a long, bitter finish. A good dash of pine cone flavor too. A manly beer, the typical one-hour beer that you don’t rush down the throat. Tasteful and big. An nice. 110224

Sweet and doughy nose, with lots of cookie dough and graham cracker, the citrus hops are there too along with light fruit juice notes. Taste is moderately sweet, moderately bitter, lots of caramel and toffee, lots of booze, some light grapefruit and apricot notes, a bit of strawberry and fruit punch, and again, more cookie dough. Texture is rather soft and just a tad creamy, best thing about this brew.

Pours vibrant cloudy orange. A fresh squeeze of mandarin on piney hops, with just the right amount of caramel to counter. This one is like biting into a hoppy piece of citrus - it just bursts with flavor in your mouth. Hop-forward, but so juicy! It’s thick, and mouth-coating - this is delicious!

This brew pours a cloudy orange-amber color with a medium light beige head that recedes steadily. Rings of lacing. Aroma of floral hops, fruit and sweet malt. Full body with flavors of puply citrus fruits, floral hops and caramel malt. The finish is dry and moderately bitter with a citrusy hops aftertaste. Not on the level with the top tier IIPAs out there, but above average nonetheless.
