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.

(330ml bottle best by 7-29-11 thanks to bu11zeye) cloudy deep amber, creamy tan bubbles. Nose of candi sugar, candied oranges, earthy like celery, lightly funky and some manure. Taste of candied oranges, right amount of bitterness, grapefruit, honey, syrupy body nice finish. Great beer!

ruskiimperial (308) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - DEC 31, 2010
Poured a dark hazey orange, almost the color of a ripe apricot with a finger’s worth of bery creamy head. The lacing it left on the glass is quite heavy. Aroma is very heavy on hop resin, quite a bit more than most other double ipa’s even. The taste has hoppy resin written all over it. Some floral characteristics come through as well. The resin-like hops bond quite well with the malts to give this otherwise bitter ale some sweetness. The body is a fairly heavy medium. You can definitely tell they’ve dry hopped this for quite a bit. Pricey, but well worth it.

VertBaconStrips (2176) - Asshat, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 28, 2010
Very deep amber with a slight haze, lots of light tan bubbly head and messy lacing. Ack! Heavenly flavor! Great aroma as well : a colossal mix of citrus and malts. Very aromatic, peaches, rrgf, herbalness is strong, floral, lemon pepper? must tie into the slight mustiness, caramel, candy, great! Damn pungent as well. Intense flavor characterized by rich caramel and stiff potent grapefruit and herbal flavors and backed by peaches, some heat, demanding spice, not overly complex but zero flaws. Very rich, great powerful hops with a hard bitterness that is subdued by absolutely everything.

Mikkeller/Brew Dog I Hardcore You Pours hazy amber with a medium white head. Nice retention and some legs. Aroma is very floral with resiny, piney hops. Sweet malt backbone as well. Very smooth aroma. Flavor is hoppy and bready with a clean floral finish. Booze is well hidden. Lovely.

Quack-Duck (8568) - Down South, GERMANY - DEC 27, 2010
bottle from bierkompass. Hazy deep amber-golden colour, large off-white head. Intensive, spicy hoppy nose. Full-bodied, delicious malty base with loads of deliciously bitter, aromatic hops which are very spicy and have a resiny-grassy character. Well-balanced, a delight.

Bonster (181) - Jersey Shore, New Jersey, USA - DEC 26, 2010
11.2 oz bottle from New Beer Dist. In NY. Hazy, orange amber pour with a huge head. Awesome lacing on the glass. Aroma is outstanding, citrus and pine hops all the way with a bit malt. I taste the sweet fruit notes up front briefly then I’m hit in the face with piney and citrus hops. A nice malt sweetness comes through at the end. Perfectly balanced. There’s nothing about this beer I don’t like. Spectacular!

Bottle that Jan passed onto me at Essen, Belgium, 18.12.10 and consumed 24.12.10 Big thanks to Jan & Charlotte This pours amber with some haze not too dissimilar in appearance to the I Beat You had earlier, large white head. Big impressive hoppy nose, soft in the mouth, there is loads of citrus and pine zapping around in the mouth and on the nose. Lovely beer, good bittersweet balance, pithy, tasty really good.

irishalky (35) - Littleton, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 24, 2010
Strong citrus hoppy IPA. Bold orange color forebodes the taste to come. Very smooth as with most imperial IPA with a distinct grapefruit taste. The strong hops leads to a bitter after taste. Nice change of pace beer for a lover of imperial stouts. If you like bitter’s, you’ll love this beer.
