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.

Sampled on 10/16/2010. This Imperial India Pale Ale pours a medium to dark orange gold color from a 33cl bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head, with good lacing and nice retention. The aroma is piney and herbal, fruity and sweet with a touch of earthiness. A medium to full bodied Imperial IPA. The malts are fruity and sweet, with some orange. The hops are herbal and piney. Decent balance. Nice carbonation. A medium bitter IPA, with nice juicy hops and a bunch of malt sweetness. Lot of citrusy and orange flavors at the finish. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Pours hazy gold into a snifter. Orange, grapefruit and resin aromas. Off-white head recedes to hug rim leaving slight lacing. Slick with upfront caramel covered dried citrus which turns to resinous grapefruit pith in the lasting finish.

Snifter. Light brown. The scent is overwhelming with fruity hoppiness. Sweet malts with superb saaz and cascade hoppiness. Nicely bitter. Aftertaste is like running in the forest after the rain has stopped and left the moist pines oozing with scents of their resin. Grabbing, grabbing aroma.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 21, 2010
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.

StefanSD (2218) - Lakeside, California, USA - OCT 21, 2010
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.

Shared bottle courtesy of Gunnar. Murky amber orang with an off white film. Good foam lacing. Spruce and malts on the nose. Sweet and hops bitter. Full body, dry.

Doodler (314) - 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.

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.
