Had this sometime during RBSG in SoCal. I’m not exactly sure which Hardcore IPA we had, but I’m guessing it’s this one, because my rating wasn’t that great. Smells of butter and lactose with a bit of spruce from the hops. Peaty, malted milk, and spruce were the main taste notes. Carbonation was fizzy. The beer tended to coat the tongue and numb it, which I guess is hardcore, but wasn’t exactly pleasant. Bitterness lingered into the finish but wasn’t anything special. Meh. Not bad, but not great either.

A hazed amber IPA with a thick frothy lacing mocha head. In aroma, nice biscuit malt with grassy and piney floral hops, barley candy, orange and fruity pulp. In mouth, a nice sweet caramel malt with light grassy floral hops, grapefruit, lingering bitterness, quite nice. Bottle from bieropholie.

Erzengel (2536) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - AUG 3, 2014
From the archive: Fruchtig-hopfiger Geruch. Der Antrunk ist fruchtig-süß, klebrig. Zum Hauptteil wird das Bier vollmundig-herb, sehr aromatisch-fruchtig, angenehm. Auf der Zunge bleibt eine vollmundig-herb-süße Note.
Viel zu klebrig-süß. Die Herbe passt gut, kommt aber kaum gegen die Süße an! 12/11/10/11

Inte världens bästa öl men den funkar i många lägen. Fräckt namn är ett stort plus ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From a bottle. Big fruity aroma, huge upfront sweet fruity flavour of hops punches you in the mouth with the first sip, such a massive beer, it truly is ’Hardcore’.

Djup orange färg med lätt skum. Doft med tropiska frukter och rosenblad. Alkoholen döljs och beskan tonar ut mycket elegant. Frisk och läcker.

(Drinking date: 18 February 2014) The beer looks delicious: hazy amber/orange colour with a thin layer of foam. The aroma is even more delicious: a bit sweet, very fresh, fruity, especially pineapple, strawberry and a bit of lemon. The taste is bitter and sweet, pretty sweet. You also taste/feel the warmth of the alcohol. It tastes really good. The taste is also bitter enough to compensate the sweetness. It leaves a nice bitter aftertaste, with a warm feeling of the alcohol. With some IPA’s the beer is good but it leaves a nasty bitter aftertaste, but with this beer that is not the case. This beer leaves a pleasent bitterness in your mouth. The mouthfeel is also really good, a bit thick, so not too watery, which is good. The carbonation could have been a little bit more, but that doesn’t really matter. Overall I am really enjoying this beer, and it is one of the best IPA’s I have ever had. That’s why I give it the total score of 4.3! :)
