COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

thebeertourist (4648) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 2, 2010
Bottle from Kihoskh, CPH. Hazy amber with a nice stable head. Citrussy hop aroma. More hops in the mouth, feels like eating fresh hops, with all its complexity and richness. Mikkeller is pumping it up.

omhper (18944) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 2, 2010
Bottled at Bishop’s Arms SoFo, Stockholm. Clear ruby, rich firm head. Overwhelming peachy hop aroma with some hay and mango. Very sweet with full body and rounded, almost sticky mouthfeel. Peppery alcohol lures beneath the thick layers of hops. The bitterness grows to massive proportions without ever getting resiny. Absolutely lovely aroma, but a bit sweet.

Vaiz (3142) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - SEP 1, 2010
Bottle @ Beer Temple, Amsterdam. Hazy orange pour, creamy off-white head. Aroma of American hops, pine, floral notes and citrus. Flavor is very hoppy bitter, some floral sweet malt but mostly hops. Incredible taste. Average carbonation and a creamy texture.

tommann (2485) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2010
330ml bottle. Pours a hazy amber with a large, tight head. Aroma is tropical fruit and piney hops. Piney hops to start, then a hit of the fruits and then loads of resin on the finish. Very bitter finish. Thick mouthfeel. Mango on the aftertaste. Hides the booze.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 30, 2010
Draft. An unclear dark amber beer with a thin lazing off-white head. The aroma has notes of fresh hops and over ripe fruits leaning on the first stage of rotting, the hops lends it notes of grapefruit. The flavor is very sweet with notes of with stong notes of a hop soup mixed with some notes of caramel, alcohol, over ripe fruits, and fresh grapefruitpeal, leading to a very bitter finish.

gunnar (4863) - Sandnes, NORWAY - AUG 29, 2010
Bottle. Pours murky hazy orange with an inch thick off-white. Aroma of pine and fruity hops, not exactly weak aromas here, there is loads and loads of it. Taste is more of the hops, i guess this must be the hopheads wettest dream ever, drowning in it. Hopjuice. Almost too much too handle, but there is a good malty minimal sweetness as well here,with ripe fruits and caramel. But this beer is all about the hops. Quite drinkable and enjoyable in small amounts.

Beershine (5195) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - AUG 29, 2010
draft @ The Rake. Thick looking, red-orange with thick cream-colored head. Big hop aroma is deep and lovely. Big mouthfeel and a big body. Smooth, clean and delicious. Balanced as far as hop bombs are concerned. Gets into a lovely fir/pine pocket.
