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.

lamas (1457) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 30, 2010
11.2 oz. bottle. A slightly murky amber pour with a thick antique white head. A pungent aroma of fresh grapefruits, resiny Balsam firs, caramel, some biscuits, and a touch of lemon. Medium to full-bodied and sticky. Plenty of caramel and biscuity maltiness upfront in the taste. Lots of grapefruits and citrus rinds in the finish. A touch of pepper at the end. A mild spiciness is present throughout. Some warming alcohol is noticeable. Not the most complex brew, but everything is just done very well. Great, great stuff.

AndyReynolds (1068) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 30, 2010
Bottle. Aroma is citrus hops and more hops. Notes of grapefruit, carmel, and toasted malts come out. Palate is chewy and thick. Flavor really brings out a simcoe hop and it finishes a bit dry. Very, very impressive.

Pours a slightly hazy copper body with a large offwhite excellent lacing head. Aroma is full of citrus flowers, sweet peaches and pine. Sweet caramelly bitterness with lots of flavor and a long lingering hoppy bitterness with an almost oily palate.

Chalsk (1097) - North Caldwell, New Jersey, USA - OCT 29, 2010
UPDATED: APR 23, 2011 Nice. Pours an amber orange color with a white soapy head. Has an aroma of citrus, caramel, and pine. Starts grapefruit sweet then a nice resiny hop hit with a nice malty layer and more citrus notes through the finish. Has a nice medium to thick, creamy mouthfeel. Excellent DIPA. I have been impressed with Mikkeller’s DIPA’s. I Beat You and 1000 IBU’s were fantastic. And this collaboration is excellent as well.

Huib (55) - Pijnacker, NETHERLANDS - OCT 29, 2010
Sweet, hoppy aroma. Salmiac malt. Chicory and grapefruit in the hops. Like the combination, reminds me of a rochefort 8 stuffed with hops:)
