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.

Sweet, hoppy aroma. Salmiac malt. Chicory and grapefruit in the hops. Like the combination, reminds me of a rochefort 8 stuffed with hops:)

Bottle shared by OleR. Cheers! Slightly hazy orange, massive creamy offwhite head which covers the glass walls as the liquid beneath is drained. Very fruity aroma, loads of tropical fruit notes, loads of sweetness as well. Apricots, citrus, something berrylike. Comes off as fresh and inviting. The first sip just strangles your tongue with bitterness. It’s not all there is though. There is a good deal of sweetness here too, but the bitterness comes off as kind of hot, almost spicy. Some alcohol in the finish. Carbonation is sparse, which fits it nicely. Medium bodied. This is raw, extreme, but feels so fresh and is so packed with flavours. Liked it a lot.

Bottle from Corks of Cotham, Bristol. Am yet to try the I beat you, but am a big fan of the hardcore so was expecting good things here and I’m pleased to say this collaboration didn’t disappoint. LIked the label. Looks like something the Gonz might have cooked up. Murky orange pour with a nicely lingering medium head. Bags of resin laden piney hops in the snout mingling with some juicy tropical fruit, lovely stuff. Great body and a super tasty flavour which revealed a stonking hop profile and cracking bitterness. Nice little alco kick towards the finish A pleasure to drink. Top notch. Want more.

magnificent beer.... I liked the i hardcore you, but it was missing some depth in the fruit/sweet department... this one has it all... terrifying malty nose complemented by lots of apple... taste is bitter, lots of malt again, apple, citrusfruits, caramel, liquorish... it has a long bitterssweet finish... it also feels alot thicker than the i hardcore you.... i absolutely must drink some mikkeller and more mikkeller brewdog crossover

Arayaga2 (1897) - portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 26, 2010
Hazy orangey brown with a bit of white head. Sweet hoppy aroma is milder than I expected, but perhaps it’s an old bottle. Taste is sweet and boozy with indistinct hop character, and piney notes into the finish. Good, but not exceptionally so @ $7/12oz

From a bottle poured an amber color with a fair amount of head. Strong hoppy flavor with a lasting aftertaste.

Ugh, am I really still rating? Anyways. We just got this in the store, no dates on this one that I could find. Amber pour with a good sized off white head. Aroma of stale hops, grapefruit, and caramel. Flavor had the amazing orange tootsie pop complete with the caramel center that seems to come to the surface of most old and lifeless IPAs. Bitter finish, good carbonation. Why export this style?
