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.

Ungstrup (34690) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 30, 2010
Draft. An unclear dark amber beer with a thin lazing off-white head. The aroma has notes of fresh hops and over ripe fruits leaning on the first stage of rotting, the hops lends it notes of grapefruit. The flavor is very sweet with notes of with stong notes of a hop soup mixed with some notes of caramel, alcohol, over ripe fruits, and fresh grapefruitpeal, leading to a very bitter finish.

oh6gdx (25472) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 23, 2010
Bottled (thanks to the Cad). Copper colour, small head. Aroma is lots of fruity, floral and grassy hops along with some mild sweet malts and bready notes. Slight hints of alcohol as well. Flavour is being quite much the same. Still a rather nicely balanced brew.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 27, 2010
On tap. Pours an opaque dark amber with a tiny off-white head. Intensely hoppy nose, somewhat medicinal - what I usually refer to as "hop soup", just massive hops with no real refined distinction. Full-bodied, caramel and fruit, somewhat salty, overripe fruits and again medicinal accents. Leaves a massive hop build-up on your palate. Very decent, there’s a lot going on but also becomes a bit much and very herbal as most heavy Double IPAs. 270810

omhper (23725) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 2, 2010
Bottled at Bishop’s Arms SoFo, Stockholm. Clear ruby, rich firm head. Overwhelming peachy hop aroma with some hay and mango. Very sweet with full body and rounded, almost sticky mouthfeel. Peppery alcohol lures beneath the thick layers of hops. The bitterness grows to massive proportions without ever getting resiny. Absolutely lovely aroma, but a bit sweet.

UPDATED: OCT 22, 2010 2nd August 2010. Fonefan in the Masters Division - Jan’s Birthday Bash.
Sample from the bottle thanks to the Cad. Clear amber beer. Light semi dry palate. Massively grassy hops. Sweet pineapple and grapefruit and then a touch of bitter orange. Nice beer and well joined up but like Mes I was expecting this one to smash it out of the park. Gives it a good tap. 7-4-7-4-13 3.5
22nd October 2010 - bottle at home.
Cloudy amber beer. Strong caramel malt base. Huge amout of piney hop - bittersweet. Palate soft and creamy. Aniseed near the finish. Better, muc better!
