This Imperial India Pale Ale Rocks... Hardcore! But don’t feel obliged to take our word for it, this little bottle has a grandiloquent story to tell. 2,204 malted Maris Otter grains gave all they had to offer the world to provide the robustly delicate toffee malt canvas for the ensuing epic. 4 Hop Cones willingly sacrificed themselves in fiery cauldron that is our brew kettle to ensure your mouth is left feeling punished and puckering for more. 9,900,000,000 yeast cells frantically fermented their little hearts out as the sugars were magically turned into alcohol in the dark depths of our fermentation tanks. 2 humans and 1 canine companion are relatively happy with the results
Note this is for the new petrol blue coloured labels with white lettering, which is 9.2%. Ratings for the older bottles with with bright blue label and black lettering should go under the first edition.

Bottle @ NK Saluhall. Clear amber colour with a medium white head. Aroma of hops, honey, fruit. Flavour of hops, some fruit. Tried it alongside I Hardcore You, go for that one. Whatever Mikkeller did it improved this beer.

Bottle at home. Big bold caramel malt backbone. Subtle grapefruit hint to the nose. Bitter boozy finish. Delicious :P

Tognetta (531) - Campinas, BRAZIL - JAN 27, 2016
Ambar escura, turva, espuma bege de boa formação e persistência. Aroma maltado, lúpulo evidente e tendendo para resinal mas com leve toque frutado, manga, pinho, melado, açucarada, complexa, alcoólica. No paladar o dulçor e amargor são de média intensidade, álcool aparente mas bem inserido. Corpo levemente licoroso, baixa carbonatação. Aftertaste frutado e resinal de boa média duraçao, álcool continua presente, amargor cresce um pouco, dulçor constante. Apesar do teor alcoólico desce bem, boa !

Bottle 0.33l. Hazy deep golden to orange body, medium white head. Aroma of malts, honey, sweet melon, sugar cake, hint of liqueur. Taste is very sweet followed by intensive bitterness. Licorice, honey, cookies, alcohol, melons, grains, touch of mint. Full body, sirupy texture, medium carbonation.
Really nice IIPA!

UPDATED: JAN 19, 2016 Levando em consideração que é uma IPA e de teor alcoólico bem alto (9,2%), eu esperava uma cerveja mais "difícil" de beber. No entanto, preparado-se para uma cerveja desse estilo e com essa graduação, ela me pareceu amarga e com sabor "marcante" na medida. Uma boa IPA

reberiii (465) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 17, 2016
Hardcore IPA. So citrusy and pine...dry, but with a lemon finish. Very big in the aroma with a ton of citrus peel. Big. Piney, funky, 4.2

Ibu alle stelle ma ben bilanciata. Aromi di resina, luppolo, ma anche citrico e frutta dolce (mango). Un tocco di piccante.
