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.

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.

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.

11.2oz bottle pours hazy murky copper with firm tan head and nice lacing. The aroma is resiny pine, grapefruit, tangerine, mild sweetness and faint pepperiness. The taste is bold with a mix of rich citrus and pine hop flavor quickly running into near brutal levels of hop bitterness where pine, grassy, resiny, grapefruit and pineapple hop bitterness run up the flavor to a fever pitch to about midway. Hoppy citrus resiny bitterness lingers for days into the after taste. Solid robustly hoppy IIPA.

330ml bottle. One finger beige head, creamy & lasting; clear ruddy amber body. Loaded with bright, piney, grapefruity US hops. Slightly resiny too on the nose. Again really piney on the palate, some subtle apricot, a hint of alcohol & a sweet, chewy, nutty malt body. Medium body & carbonation with a hugely bitter lingering, lingering, lingering finish. Juicy orange notes in the aftertaste.

Bottle. Suck a fucking amazing label. Pours a nice copper color with a dense long lasting, lacing white head. Great fresh citric hop aroma. The flavor is the same, but a little bit more malt heavy than American IIPAs. But, the hops still dominate, but in a beautifully flavorful way, not in the stupidly resinous bitter way that many breweries approach the style. Medium to full bodied with low carbonation. Beautifully smooth. Overall: an absolutely fantastic IIPA with a fantastically beautiful label. I am in love.

I gotta say, foreign impy IPAs are a fraction of what their American counterparts are. This one pours a hazy, rich amber color with light off-white head. Aroma is intensely citrus, apricot, floral notes and light malt. Taste is much the same. Tastes like earthy, resinous hops, not the bright floral and citrus qualities I dig.

12 ounce from HyVee. Big white head. Orange/red body. Caramel and sweetness balance the hops. Much, much better than the I Beat U.

The aroma is pretty amazing. Honey, floral shop, slight funk to it. Perfectly balanced. Good lord I live hops. My preferences are changing i think and this beer is a reason why. A sweeter imperial for sure....I love it. Makes me excited to drink both milkkelers and brew dogs beers. Couldn’t be happier. More depth and more complex than hopslam.

Draft. Smell is overpowering of floral hops. Potpouri and grass. Pours a deep amber color with nice lacing around the glass. Taste is extremely hoppy, kind of reminds me or something ive had before from the west coast. This is awesome if youre a hop/ipa lover
