3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Maybe i donít like the most of the DIPA on the market and i donít get the Brewdog beers sometimes; or just the bottle was not so fresh as it should be. Anyway i didnít like the Hardcore IPA that much.
Copper color, white head. Weak hop aroma and a lot of biscuit and malt on the palate. Really bitter but the malt (tons of malt i mean) works well to balance the whole thing. DIPA? ASA? BW? doesnít matter, Not my stuff...

Bottle 33cl. A clear amber colour with a high, good lacing, off-white head. An aroma of malt, hops, caramel and citrus (grapefruit). The taste is heavy sweet and medium bitter. A medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation and a long finish.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy orange sugar cane paste colour with tan head. On the aroma is sweet, hopy together with caramel hints. Medium sweetness, light to medium bitterness on the taste, caramel and sugar cane hints, alcoholic level is present (good flavour but where is the hardcore part?). Medium body, oily feel, average carbonation and a dry and a bit more bitter finish. Ok.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor, pours a deep copper colour. Aroma is of citrus, taste is far better resin, spice, caramel, citrus and leaves a nice lacing on the glass. I wouldnít of been able to tell it was 9.2% if i hadnít read it on the label.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Alko. Hardcore IPA is a beer worth itís name but not all in positive things. Very hoppy as youíd imagine but quite alcoholic and a bit harsh too. Iíve definitely had better ~10% DIPAís.

Strong flavor, many syrupy malts with a sharp bite. The hops are constant all the way around. Major alcohol strength. Delicious but strong, drink carefully
