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.

Quite good. Strong citrus hop aroma. Cloudy orange-copper color with a small head. Palate was impressive with weight, good carbonation and good distribution of separate flavors on the tongue. Up front is a strong, almost harsh, bitterness coupled with a caramel sweetness on the sides. This culminated in a nice blend at the finish. Great collaboration.

Hazy dried apricot body with bone white, slightly sudsy 1" head leaving heavy lacing

Honey, citrus, pine, and dankness on a dense pillow like mouth, soft bitter sting rolls into cleaning, numbing bitterness, big and fairly complex, thick and creamy

Spare small white head. Some lacing... and... unable to finish my rating because of the overwhelming sweetness. Harsh sweetness, unbalanced. Not my type.

Édesen indul, utána kicsit komlós lesz. Illata nagyon finom, hajba szép. Nekem nagyon tetszett.

Clear light amber, white head. Smells of sweet fruits (apricots, melon), light citrus, sweet malt and caramel. Very sweet taste with fruity notes again and caramel. Sweetest IPA I’ve ever had, light final hoppy bitterness.

venom666 (332) - Alicante, SPAIN - MAY 28, 2014
Clean copper color with a good creamy white, persistent head. Citrus traces on the aroma, also with grapefruit and orange, tropical fruit like pineapple and mango and malty caramel with honey touches. The taste is bitter, resinous and dry, check with caramel and honey touches,with shades of mango, pineapple and grapefruit. Good balanced, medium carbonated and sweet and bitter finish. Outstanding!

A world-class beet, undoubtedly one of the best in its style. Delicious aroma, taste, mouthfeel and overall. Equally hoppy and malty, the predominant notes are to tropical fruits and biscuit in the malts. If a perfect beer exists, for sure it won’t be very different to this one.

DroolYeast (213) - Odder, DENMARK - MAY 23, 2014
Bottle @ BrewDog Aberdeen. Explosion of citra hops in the aroma, wow. Some fruit, strawberry. Clear golden amber with small off-white head. Tiny head is lasting. Heavy bitterness mixed with alcohol sweetness. Fruity. Yum. Finish is hoppy, bitter and warm. Soapy texture. Average carbonation. Rich body.

martjoobolut (655) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 19, 2014
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.
