COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
English: I Hardcore You is a 9.5% Imperial India Pale Ale, an international collaborative effort between 2 of Europeís most rock ín roll brewers. This beer is a blend of BrewDogís Hardcore IPA and Mikkellerís 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.

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

yngwie (15380) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 24, 2011
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. Itís 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 donít rush down the throat. Tasteful and big. An nice. 110224

ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - FEB 22, 2011
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.

trevor211 (1421) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 21, 2011
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! Itís thick, and mouth-coating - this is delicious!

Dogbrick (9439) - 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 thatís not necessarily a bad thing.

DuffMan (7996) - 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.
