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.

adnielsen (10037) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 16, 2010
Tasted from a 11.2 oz bottle purchased in Fort Collins, colorado. Mildly hazy orange appearance. Strong floral aroma that’s tasty. Strong floral flavor with actually a great pale sweet malt flavor. Finish is a sweet malty, hoppiness that really covers up the alcohol.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - DEC 16, 2010
Bottle. Love the bottle and the artwork here. Pours a deep amber body with a white head big old head and solid retention and glass lacing. A dry spruce tone, earth, not so much herbal as its bitter and resinous. Tannic note, and very bitter grapefruit. Up front a bit sweet a mostly grapefruit body with a hint of cane like sugar notes overlying the hops. Light grass notes and a mild warming. I’m not usually a fan of foreign made IPA’s hell i dont even like them on the east coast for the most part, but a fine job here.

Mad_Ferret (745) - SWEDEN - DEC 14, 2010
Tap. Cloudy dark honey brown. Aroma of piney hops, a bit cat pee, grapefruit. Taste is complex and thick with citrus and pine and i feel something that feels like coffee. This is really good, and in my book the way a dipa should be. Which in a way also makes it a bit of a disappointment.

zizzybalubba (1604) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - DEC 13, 2010
11.2 oz. bottle from Grape & Gourmet. Hazy dark orange pour with a bubbly off-white head. Killer aroma of grapefruit, tangerine, and caramel with grassy notes. The hop flavor is big and bold with dominating grapefruit rind and pineapple yet is surprisingly well balanced. Some detectable warmth from the alcohol. Nearly a perfect DIPA and worth every penny of the $7 for this bottle.

bluebetty (1019) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 12, 2010
Bottle. Pours a golden copper with decent cream coloured head. Slightly hazy but a good looking brew. Huge aromas of grapefruit and pine needles. Not much else but I am not complaining. Initial flavours of sweet malt followed by good resiny hope bitterness on the finish. Fullish mouthfeel. Good beer.

Cavie (4013) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - DEC 11, 2010
Bottle courtesy bu11zeye. Murky brown gold color with a small amount of white bubbles. Very large hop aroma. Pine, sap, earth spice and more hops on the nose. Flavor is very piney, reminds me of Douglas Fir, very nice. Finishes pine needles, some dry notes with a big amount of spice.

Maybe I have reached my limit with imperial IPA’s but this just tasted a muddle with no floral, citrus or woodsy hop flavors to be seen. Plenty of strong good malt taste but if I wanted a strong ale I would have ordered one.

Finishes with more pine resins, citrus peel, grapefruit, caramel, and sweet malt.
