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.

marcot (771) - Campomorone, ITALY - OCT 9, 2010
Bevuta ieri sera in bottiglia. Collaborazione tra Mikkeller e Brewdog: Ť una imperial IPA nata dal blend della scozzese Hardcore IPA e della danese I beat you. Questo "mischione" viene in seguito ulteriormente luppolato con dry hopping. Non ho mai assaggiato la I beat you, quindi il mio giudizio non puÚ essere completo, ma ho trovato questa IPA davvero buona, con un profilo aromatico complesso e molto azzeccato. Si beve molto bene nonostante il tenore alcolico non bassissimo (9,5%).

Snojerk321 (2975) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 7, 2010
12oz bottle from Olive tree market. A hefty price tag of 8 bucks but hell, Iíll try anything. Pours a hazy deep golden orange with a frothy off white head, some nice lacing. Tons of pine, citrus and some herbal / musty qualities. Quite sticky on the finish.

11.2 ounce bottle from Holiday Wine Cellar ($8.99). Pours a murky orange-red-amber with one finger of beige-ish head. Aroma of fruit (bright grapefruit mostly but also tangerine, peach, and hints of tropical fruit), pine, and grassy/earthy hops. Flavor is also strongly hoppy (juicy fruit) and more bitter than sweet with a noticeable bit of alcohol. A strong malt character emerges late in the flavor. Dry finish with some lingering bitterness. This is an interesting concept, and I can appreciate what these two brewers have been doing to create something out of the ordinary in Europe. This ends up being a decent DIPA, but living in San Diego there are many equal and better DIPAís that are much less expensive than this, so I canít help but feel a bit disappointed. (92, 394)

deyholla (5974) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 6, 2010
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2011 Bottle thanks to Sarah. Poured a hazy brown with an amber hue and a yellowish brown head that lasted throughout the beer. Aroma was full of hops with a strong pine note accompanied by citrus, particularly pineapple, resin and sweet grain. Flavor was similar with a strong pine start with a bit of resin and a growing pineapple note and a lot of sweet grain coming out in the finish. Nice and smooth on the tongue.

This beer reminds me of a boozier, fresh Bigfoot. Lots of citrus and sweet malt in the nose. Nice stand of head with persistent lacing. Beer pours a hazy orange. Citrus, tangerine, alcohol big in flavor. Not overly bitter. Enough bitterness to balance but doesnít interfere with the other more interesting flavors. Not a lot of dank. Full mouthfeel that clears the palate. This is a big beer that you could drink a lot of. I really like this beer. Itís the best DIPA Iíve had in ages. The mix of sweet and citrus balanced by alcohol and bitterness. Great beer. Expensive but well worth it!

Ratman197 (9045) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - OCT 4, 2010
Bottle poured a hazy orange amber with a lasting creamy amber head. Aromas of biscuit, orange, pink grapefruit, tropical fruit and light pine. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of biscuit, tangerine, peach, pink grapefruit, light tropical fruit and a hinmt of pine with a smooth dry lingering bitter fruity finish. One of the better DIPAs Iíve had in awhile.

Pours hazy amber. Not much head. Big fruity grapefruit aroma. Very bitter, lots of grapefruit. But also malty enough. Very good beer!
