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.

Bottle in the Netherlands. Beautiful colour when poured and hoppy aromas. In mouth it feels bitter, yet sweet and very well balanced. A top brew

Alengrin (3105) - BELGIUM - JAN 31, 2015
American-style double IPA made at Brewdog with the collaboration of Mikkeller - and if these two avantgardists join forces, something exciting is bound to come out of it. Clear, warm, beautiful orange colour with quiet sparkling; loose, milky, irregular, rather thin (despite the hops!) head leaving a thin veil over the liquid. Expectedly, the aroma is ruled by strong citrusy hops; I get tons of pink grapefruit, fresh orange peel, wormwood and pine needles, along with acacia honey, toasted bread, fresh pineapple slices, dandelion leaves, brandy, vanilla, overripe peach, starfruit, sundried tomatoes, some cantaloupe, liquorice even. This beguiling aroma is rewarded in the mouth: a pointy, refined, delicate but feisty vanilla-like sweetness opens the palate among noble fruitiness (peach, pineapple, redcurrant, papaja), playing around in the mouth vividly and joyfully... Middle phase has a smooth and resinous character, high quality maltiness, with the hops already knocking on the door. The finish is ruled by citrussy, peppery, resinous and grassy hop bitterness, very vibrant and crisp, long, dry and complex, interacting beautifully with the lingering malt sweetness. The alcohol, though considerable, remains very well hidden. This is on a par with many of the greatest American double IPAs, but then, how could a collaboration between Brewdog and Mikkeller ever go wrong...

StoutHead (847) - DENMARK - JAN 21, 2015
Draught (@ Ørsted Ølbar a while back). Pours a pale amber colour with a small white head. Taste is of malt, hops, light citrus notes and yeast. Sweet and very fruity. Bitter and slightly boozy finish. Not bad but nothing too special.

VictorStr (1740) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - JAN 16, 2015
Punch in da face with sweetness and bitterness. Frukt i aromen, hintar om kraftig sötma i smaken. Smaken mycket sötma, ABVn känns av. Bra fyllighet och balans i både smak och kropp.

Bottle from Jane’s Beer Store, Mountain View. Gorgeous aroma of sweet tropical fruit, and some raisins. Super sweet up front, raisin and pine, with a bitter finish. Sticky sweet mouthfeel. Great!!
