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.

Pours a dark, murky amber, much darker than I was expecting, with a huge billowy beige head that shows exceptional retention and lacing. The aroma is packed with pithy grapefruit and pineapple. There is also a hefty caramel malt sweetness and a light boozy burn in the nostrils. Balanced, but hoppy nose. The taste is even more balanced with an initial grapefruit blast giving way to a thick caramel malt backbone. The finish is a mixture of sugary malts and pine resin. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied and sticky with the resinous hops and thick malts. This is a good DIPA and very balanced. Nothing too memorable but certainly well crafted.

11 oz bottle from bev4less. Pours a translucent copper color with a medium beige head that has fair retention and some lacing. The aroma reveals pine, citrus and sweet barley. The flavor is biter hops forward with pine, grapefruit, soap and caramel. The palate is full and malty smooth with lively carbonation. Finishes medium in duration and biter. Overall: Decent, biter, but also a bit harsh.

Doodler (312) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 20, 2010
From bottle - poured a hazy amber with a small off-white head. Nice carbonation with a hoppy aroma. Citrus and grapefruit with some pine aromas. Wow - a very nice DIPA. Great flavor with nice malts balancing it out. Finishes really balanced with some slight caramel notes. Glad I bought a few. Will have again for sure.

Bottle split with Big Tony. As the cap hits the table your assaulted with the aroma of this ipa. Body pours a hazy amber body with nice lacing. Aroma is strong fresh and dry hop - beautiful hopazzzz. Mouthfeel is great however the flavor is a bit underwhelming after taking in the top notch aroma.

TonyDiUlio (650) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 19, 2010
Had courtesy of James for helping with some accounting homework even though I did a "pour" job of it. Pour is a beautiful deep copper with medium head that has some minor lacing. Aroma is a pungent fresh hop a little like weed and fruits. Flavor is a lesser hop than in the aroma. Still nicely balanced and easy to drink. Hops and bananas with some nice floral hints. Well made mix. Really enjoyed it.

simcoe_citra (19) - Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 18, 2010
Wow, what a beer. Amber with an off-white thin head. It’s got a hop-murk rather than a hop-haze. A heady aroma of mango and cats piss. Fantastic. Tropical fruit, basil (its definitely there), mint, orange peel. Mouthfeel is just right, full and sticky without any overkill. The finish is beautiful, a bitterness that lasts. I have 3 left in my garage, you can’t have any.

OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 18, 2010
Bottle from Utobeer, London. A foggy amber colored body, topped by a finger of blond foam. Superfresh and massive hop aroma. Both oily and fruity, resiny and floral. Grapefruit and mint, peaces and pine-needles, apricot and green leaves. A pleasant caramel note can also be detected. Sweet-flavored with a solid malt base. And certainly enough hops to deal with it. Bold hop bitterness, lots of inviting flavoring hops, too. Complex hop character, as in the aroma. Pepper notes and a hint of dark bread. Big-bodied and thick in the mouth. Everlasting fruity-bitter and resinous ending. Just a wee alcohol sting away from the perfect IIPA, IMO. I am a newborn hophead.

Bottle. 12 oz. Had to buy a second bottle, as I did not quite remember the full details of the first tasting. Popped this guy during the Eagles-Falcons game. Pours a murky, clouded pumpkin orange with a full, rich, creamy off-white head. Leaves spiderweb silky white lacing down the sides of the glass throughout the session. Aroma of Granny Smith apple, fresh pears, honey, lavender, tangerine, and a heap of fresh, aromatic dry hops. Body is on the fuller side of medium, with an extremely tight, sticky, somewhat bitter mouthfeel. Finishes with a resinous, juicy pine hop flavor and a dry bitterness on the back of the tongue. Very slight touch of booziness as well. This is an extremely flavorful, well balanced, though admittedly intensely hoppy, double IPA. Very, very good.
