COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Nice piney hops all over the nose. First sip is really sweet, but not syrupy like some IIPAs can be. Hops come back on the finish, not as overpowering as I expected, but quite pleasant. Alcohol is hidden well, this is a dangerous brew.

mgajdaczewa (490) - Katowice, POLAND - JUL 21, 2014
W aromacie uderza potęga chmielu, jest rześko a zarazem jest pełnia i bogactwo aromatu, grejpfrut, ananas, mango i pewnie masa innych owoców. W smaku pełne, słodkie z wysoką goryczką, ale wszystko wspaniale zbalansowane. Owoce tropikalne, lekkie przyprawy i zioła na finiszu. Alkohol mógłby być lepiej ukryty, ale tragedii nie ma. Doskonały, degustacyjny trunek.

circinus (209) - SWEDEN - JUL 21, 2014
Bottle 33 cl from Barleywine, CPH. Hazy dark orange with a yellowish head. Fudge, orange marmelade, quite sweet, candied fruit?. Medium body, medium carbonation, sweet finish. Way too sweet for my taste. Probably old bottle?

Franzen (317) - SWEDEN - JUL 21, 2014
Caramell and alcohol in the aroma with some fruitiness not much hops. Hazy orange white head. Malty sweet caramelly not what I expect from an IIPA. Full body low carbonation. It is to sweet and malty with not much hops, brewwd in march so It shouldn’t just be age, a dissapointement.

rockana (222) - Zadar/Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 11, 2014
Pours clear amber with big whitw head. Fruity nose. Aroma is herbal, flowery, a bit grassy and fruity. Taste is bitter covered by sweetness. It has a lot of alochol but it is covered by sweetness, so that work great for me.

NOZE of syrupy malt and fruity hops magnificently balanced, Hops : tropical fruits (lechee, passion) resin (pine) Malts : Caramel, cereals, roasty (for an amber). Vanila, raisin, butterscotch. EYE Amber-orange, no foam, clear. no sparkling at all TONGUE, sweet and bitter, but IMO a bit too sweet, medium bitterness, mostly at the end. The imperial part and dry hopping does get a nice balance between hops and malts in the taste. THROAT medium to full body, creamy. average but good cargo. long sweet and bitter finish, really good; OVERALL Loved it, although a bit too sweet, the alcool is balanced, along with the different tastes, and the hops flavors are incredible. POURED from cold bottle in trapist glass (lost mine).
