COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
English: I Hardcore You is a 9.5% Imperial India Pale Ale, an international collaborative effort between 2 of Europeís most rock ín roll brewers. This beer is a blend of BrewDogís Hardcore IPA and Mikkellerís 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.

gorditoabd (624) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 2, 2010
12oz bottle. Pours like hazy honey, with a finger or so of dense foamy head. Aroma is full and intense of pine, grapefruit, floral, and general resin. Taste is as buttery, creamy as I would have expected from the style, and the brewers, but not overwhelming, like this style can be when poorly done. Really coats the mouth, flowing well from pine, to citrus, to floral, to a final, gentle mix. ABV warmth is there, but not burning. Very, very nice stuff.

Bottle: Batch #174. Big off white to light brown foamy head. Clear dark orange to amber color. Smell is fruity (apple, orange, hints of red fruit, strawberry, citrus, grapefruit), hoppy and bitter. Taste is super fruity, bitter and sparkling mouthfeel turns dry and more bitter towards the end. Bit of warmth from alcohol. Hops, bitter, fruit, flowers, hints of yeast and grass.

Leighton (11889) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2010
Tap at CPK, London. Pours cloudy, amber-orange, with a soft, orange-white head. Outrageous hop aroma: grapefruit, ripe orange, light pine and caramel. Very sweet flavor with caramel and sugar. plus honey, grapefruit and orange. Full bodied with fine to average carbonation and some alcohol warmth. Lightly woody. Very intense flavor, strong. Finishes with potency and balance, with equal parts caramel and citrus hop. Quite resiny - my teeth are throbbing and it is likely the enamel on them are running for the hills. It is really great.

20100930 Bottle at Maxís, bottle from Honeygo. Well, I had already bought the Hoenygo bottle but not opened it when I was gifted so graciously a bottle to share with Chuck and Mark at Maxís a week ago. I didnít care for it then. Tonight seemed like a good night to tuck into a strong beer, what with the flood and all, so what better time to re-visit and see if it was just skewed perception (I doubt it). This one is as attractive as any average IIPA, with a medium amber color, medium sized beige head of loose foam, and moderate lacing. Aroma is nougat, buttery biscuit, and caramel apple, with some background notes of pine and caramelized citrus. Actually not a very appealing aroma once it warms. palate is heavy and coating, which works okay because the carbonation is fairly eager. Flavor isnít all that sweet, but itís thick and coating in a way thatís kind of cloying. The 4 oz sample I had at Maxís was more than enough, and I only drank half of this bottle before discarding the rest. Kind of a let down, only, I guess, because I was expecting a lot. The label, by the way, is one of the best Iíve ever seen.

Travlr (13428) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - SEP 30, 2010
Bottle at Pizzeria Paradiso in the presence of Mr. Obama and his secret service dues (and one dude-ette who looked very scary). Murky golden color, small white head. Aroma of pine forests. Taste is very bitter pine. Decent enough.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 30, 2010
Bottle. Pours out in a shady dark orange colour topped with a big thick off-white head. Big-time hop aroma of resin and red grapefruits with hints of flowers and caramel. Full-bodied with thick and chewy notes of resin, grapefruit, red berries, caramel and lemon-zest. Quite oily mouthfeel. Really bitter finish of grapefruit, grass and resin. Tasty!

ladnewton (1489) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2010
Bottle at Evening Star, Brighton, England on 29th September 2010 (Thanks Matt for sharing this with me!) Pours amber with thin off-white head. Rich, thick earthy and woody aroma, notes of fresh sweat - like that of someone you know and like. Grapefruit fruit, bitterness and rich spice in-mouth. Controlled bitter finish. Zingy mouthfeel. Excellent!

GT2 (8742) - San Diego County, California, USA - SEP 28, 2010
355mL. Pours a deep, slightly hazy orange. Fairly dark for DIPA. A fair yellowish head leaves incredible webby lace throughout the tulip. Aroma is chewy mango peel, sweaty feet, Pine-Sol, candy corn eventually developing into intense florals and caramel chews but with an overarching aroma of artificial strawberry that my nose always interprets from older hop oils. Taste is full of unripe banana bitter stickiness, cardboardy dryness, some spicy booziness, fairly nice caramel malt backing getting destroyed by walnut skin bitterness. Soft palate with heavy/prickly carbonation to start and nice mellow mouthfeel as it sits and warms. Dry in the finish. 9.5% is fairly obvious.
