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.

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!

Dogbrick (9350) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 20, 2011
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.

elgiacomo (745) - Ringgold/Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia, USA - FEB 20, 2011
12oz bottle, no freshness date but a very recent delivery to the state of Georgia so it should be quite fresh. Pours very murky & hazy copper/amber with a large 3 finger foamy off-white head that leaves some sheets of lacing and holds a good foamy island. Aroma is heavy on pungent citrus rind, grapefruit especially as well as some orange, fairly dank, cat spray Simcoe goodness, caramel malt and bread. Very good strength. Flavor is some serious resinous hops, tons of grapefruit and citrus, good caramel malt backbone offering just a touch of sweetness which is immediately swept away by a strong wave of bitterness. Alcohol content is masked and integrated very well. Mouthfeel is medium bodied (almost full for a DIPA), low to medium carbonation. Big dank and pungent DIPA, but still maintains a good balance. Not very complex but that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

DuffMan (7836) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 19, 2011
Bottle, shared with Parksy. Hazy red-orange pour, frothy long lived head. Big grapefruit rind and resin aromas. Sticky toffee malts support an enormous hop load, lots of resin and citrus rind. A huge brew, but very well balanced and delicious.

JohnnyJ (4872) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 19, 2011
Bottle. Orange/amber pour, with a small off-white head. Grapefruit, lots of sweet caramel malt, lightly bready, pine, citrus, and hops. A good IIPA, I have had many better, but this is still good. Worth a try.

Tmoney99 (11817) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 19, 2011
Bottle. Poured hazy copper color with a large frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy earth hop aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy smooth bitter hop flavor with a medium to heavy bitter finish of moderate duration. This is a very good beer.

Cloudy orange color with a nice lasting white head. Aroma is spice and pine with a touch of citrus peel tickling your nose. Flavor is full bodied, nice, lots of caramel sweetness. The hop profile is a little muted which may speak to the age here but you can still get a little sense of what is going on. Resiny pine hop profile and a little bit of rubbing alcohol band aid but pleasantly so. Pretty nice malt profile but the hop profile is not my fave. Good effort nonetheless.

arminjewell (8582) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 16, 2011
Pours hazy red with nice white head. Aroma has nice notes of spice, some earth, nice pine and citrus rind, with notes of caramel. Taste is bitter pine and citrus up front, some nice earthy spice and caramel in the middle, big bitter pine finish that lingers. Wish I would have had this fresh, but is still great a month or two old.
