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.

0,33L bottle. Pours clear amber-copper with white head. The head stays. Aroma is caramel, pine, fruits, and alcohol. Taste is very sweet, caramel, fruits, and pine. Finish is intense pine bitter with caramel. Alcohol is slightly noticeable. Overall: nice hoppy brew, but a little bit too sweet for my taste.

Drunk 18/05/14 at home while reading hops and glory. powered through part 1 with this badboy. pours amber with instant big fresh hoppy pine, flowers and some fruit. its a heady mix. taste is sweet on the tongue, big boozy punch and a lasting dry bitterness. tbh i was surprised at how drinkable it was. wished i had another one to tan right after as it woulda put me in that halfcut zone thats perfect for some hardcore reading

Pours clear amber colour with thin off-white head. Strong tangerine and grapefruit in the nose. Palate is thickish, silky with discreet carbo. Taste is massive ! Tangy, sweet, ripe fruit notes mix with the bitter grapefruit kick we’re all looking for. A beer to serve to all beer sceptics. Remarkable.

I’m yet to be disappointed by both breweries and this one is no exception. And yet I’m still on the fence on this brew. A collaboration made in heaven or hell one might say. A copper hue. The head is fothy. It is hoppy. But the body seems scooped. Earthy and unearthly flavors collide. Frankly, it is exquisite and the same time kinda decadent. Its like it would fit perfectly at some fine dining place and at the same time some dark, seedy speakeasy. I like and dislike it at the same time. I think the genius and idea supercedes the brew, but still try it.

Bottle, in the Brewdog Bar, Manchester. Sat outside on a nice sunny day, some nutters out today. Always seem to get in some weird conversations when I go here. Darkish amber gold with a thin off white head. Aroma has some peach and pine, toffee. Flavour has some nice sweetness, aniseed, smooth finish. Pretty good.

Cervesa molt extrema tant en alcohol en gust com a amarga, però està molt bona. Cerveza muy extremista tanto en alcohol en gusto como amarga, pero está muy buena.

Teku glass. Cooper/burnt orange with low to medium, white head, which dissapears quickly. Very clear no haziness. Intense fruity aromas - citrus (orange, tangerine), some tropical fruits (mango). Clean malty sweetness. Resinous and grassy. Some alcohol notes. Strong an complex hop flavour - mainly citrus (orange, tangerine, grapefruit) and tropical fruits (mango, pineapple) - those two are dominant. In the background some grassy and pine notes. High bitterness from the start till the end in the very end sweet accents. Aftertaste is bitter.Smooth. Medium body. Medium carbonation. No alcohol warming. Very good, highly drinkable IIPA, good balance between hop and malty/sweet character.

Deu (681) - Nantes, FRANCE - APR 20, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours hazy brown orange with a lasting, leaving lacings, creamy off-white head. Nose fills with malt, caramel, dark tropic and citrus fruity.Taste is loads of sweet, loads of bitter and lasting . Balancing in a hardcore way. Body is strangely light to medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. Nice but not impressive
