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.

At a tasting, thanks DSG: in the aroma huge hops, citrus, guava, mango, lychee, peach, rose water, very aromatic, in the flavor there is a strong malt backbone with less hoppy flavor, bisquity bready malt with some caramel, very bitter aftertaste, great beer.

ben4321 (5395) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 5, 2010
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite - Jersey City, 11/5/10

Aroma: The nose has fresh, ripe grapefruit, peach, apricot, a little orange, and some pine
Appearance: A murky orangish-brown colored beer with a small, frothy white head with decent lace
Flavor: The taste is rather hoppy, like the nose, sweet citrus fruits and lots of bitter hoppiness
Palate: The body is medium-full, with soft carbonation, and it is smooth, sticky and chewy on the mouth
Overall Impression: I thought this one sounded like a pretty good collaboration idea right here. Two of the most experimental European breweries working together on a big DIPA? Yes, please! Well, this one was pretty solid, but not quite as great as I wanted it to be. I thought it has a very nice nose, but could have been a little bigger, despite that small criticism, this is still a very good beer for sure.

Fantastic brew and very well balanced. Pours golden yellow, Aroma is a bit lost on me, but thatís a running theme with me. Has the mouthfeel of a very hefty, malty ale, but has a taste thatís not so malty-overwhelming as the mouthfeel makes me expect. Very citrusy, floral hops with a solid malt backbone thatís not overly sweet. One of the most well balanced beers Iíve ever tried. Unfortunately four of us shared this 12 oz. bottle, so it was gone way too fast.

Jaksmart (454) - Aarhus, DENMARK - NOV 5, 2010
Bottle. Nice clear amber colour with a beautiful creamy foam with nice retention. Aroma is a symphony of exotic fruits, hops and well-balanced malts. Lots of pine, simcoe, mango and caramel. Also some sugar and maybe a slight bit of honey. Taste is equally equilibristic and awesome. The sweetness and bitterness is perfectly balanced, and, coupled with the many exotic fruits, this blend becomes a better beer than either of its contributors. Carbonation is mild and pleasant and it reveals little of the high alcohol content.

On tap at the Local Option ; Pours a solid dark, cloudy golden hue with whitish head I guess (low level lighting) - I had this one right after the Green Gold; Anyway - Poured into a trappist glass, I guess. Which I find questionable - Whatever. Nice lacing here in comparison to the Green Gold - Aromas are fairly similar - a floral bouquet on the nose with an earthy quality as well. Flavors are much bigger though, sticky to be sure. What this brew retains is that creamy element which I do quite enjoy as its a bit different than what Iíve come to expect from an IPA of any kind thus far - Nice earthy malt tones try to overcome the very big bitter piney floral hops - Again I donít get much citrus here, however, which is my only disappointment. Excellent brew

At a tasting, many thanks DSG, smallish head, hazy deep rusty orange colour, aroma of herbs, sweet grapefruit and lemon, flavour of citrus, tea, herbs and some floral notes, strong and mellow bitterness melding with precise fruity sweetness to create a wonderfully balanced finish. Very good and satisfying.

JorisPPattyn (9131) - Ursel, BELGIUM - NOV 4, 2010
Very good, fine yellow head over veiled amber-orange beer. Grapey aroma, cake, some nutmeg and fresh baconfat. Very present rich-estery hoppy nose. Bitter, resiny, grapey flavour with again meaty/fruity esters behind; X-mas pudding; mandarines retronasal. Rich body, viscous, warming. Long petering out of the main taste. Quite good IIPA, certainly not the strongest, nor the bitterest, but rewarding.

DSG (10578) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - NOV 4, 2010
Bottle at a tasting. Hazy orange with a white head. Hoppy aroma of citrus, some piney notes and some tropical fruits notes. Flavor has some slightly biscuity maltiness and a bit of caramel, continues bitter and hoppy with some citric notes. Medium-bodied. Tasty and pretty easy-drinking.
