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.

UPDATED: JAN 13, 2015 Draught at Komachi. Beautiful clear amber. Lots of tropical fruit with hops. Beautifully balanced flavour with the malts, but allows the hop fruit flavour to dominate just enough. Dangerously good.

Red/pink colour. Small white head. Very full aroma full of red fruits, rasins, sugar and sweet grassy citrus hops. A little dry at first, very nice citrus, grass hoppy and sweet aftertaste. Nice balance of sweet and hops.

Bottle. Pours clear golden amber with a medium shortlasting head. Aromas of malt, caramel, citrus, hops, orange peel. Taste is pretty bitter up front, some caramel malty notes, orange peel, pretty floral. Dry hops seem nice in this!

An amazing nose with loads of pineapple and exotic fruits. Dark, gold colour. The finish is nice, I found it too sweet though.

Imperial ipa de 9,5 % abv, qui est une collaboration Brewdog et Mikkeller. Couleur abricot/pêche, avec un léger voile de levure. Bulles fines en colonne centrale, mais pas très nombreuses. Mousse beige claire d’un nappage fin. Arômes de mangue, mandarine, pamplemousse rose, pain gris. 1ère bouche soyeuse et dense sur la mangue, le pamplemousse, avec une fine pointe de poivre. Arrière-bouche avec une grande amertume. 2ème à la densité encore plus forte. Note de bois blanc de fût en plus. Arrière-bouche très longue. 3ème avec une pointe de sel marin, bois de santal, fougères brûlées. Arrière-bouche très fine. La longueur apporte du tabac blond, de la réglisse, des embruns. Une merveille pure. La levure est sobre mais d’une grande ligne. L’alcool, sans être exagéré, plaide manifestement en faveur des imperial ipa face aux ipa. Vieux débat que je reprendrai sans cesse de l’importance de l’alcool dans le soutien aux saveurs. La densité que l’on trouve ici ne s’explique que par un haut niveau abv… La finale est entre divine et sublime (la nuance étant philosophique, je vous passe les détails …). CONCLUSION : Brewdog arrive à la cote maximale avec l’aide de Mikkeller. Les deux font la paire, disent les grands-mères… Et ce n’est pas mon verre d’aujourd’hui qui va les contredire (les grands-mères …).

MarkoNm (1095) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - DEC 16, 2014
Pours a clear orange/dark amber color, topped with a very nice off-white head. Fruity and caramel aroma, not that strong. Taste starts fruity and quite sweet, followed by a fairly strong bitterness with sweetness there in the back all the time. Sweet finish, some herbal aftertaste. A weird combo of sweet and bitter, very strong but still drinkable.

Gedronken bij een proeverij van Plan b. De hardcore ipa met zijn zoetigheid word iets meer gebalanceerd door de i beat you. Lekker
