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.

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!

Fin (8852) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2010
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.

tobydarling (31) - Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2010
330ml bottle, 2010 version. Pours a deep amber, with moderate off white head (that reduces). Huge resin and citrus. Great carbonation just tickles the tongue without distracting. Big marmelade flavour (almost a texture), with some more citrussy/grapefruit at the edges, and toast and caramel/toffe in the middle. Really nice balance. Long drying finish. Great stuff

GJF (1448) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - DEC 23, 2010
Very nice. My previous rating was a double IPA that had tons of hops but didn’t come together--this one, however, has just as much hop character but is also wonderfully balanced and layered. Plenty of pine and grapefruit here and the finish is very dry, very bitter, with just a touch of alcohol burn.

ComradeK (1081) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 23, 2010
330ml bottle. Pours a wonderfully hazy mid-amber, with a fluffy white head, good retention and lacing. The aroma is full-on imperial IPA, with pine and citrus, and maybe a hint of caramel. The merest hint of sweetness is followed immediately by a huge whack of oily citrus and resin hops, flowing into a sweet caramel malt finish. It is much more balanced than Hardcore IPA, yet lacks the absolute hop power of that brew. It’s a different kind of beer to the one of progenitors that I have thus far tried, more restrained and more balanced. A top effort from two of the world’s most vaunted brewers.

11.2 oz bottle. Poured a clear orange color, nice medium sized fluffy head. Aroma was hops, citrus, nice balance of malts, touch of spice. Flavor was fantastic! Fruit notes, citrus hops, pine, bitter hops, woah. Crisp, nice hop oil finish.
