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.

Initial pungent nose leads to balanced, medium bodied DIPA. In a typical European IPA manner, this amber colored ale has an underlying boozy sweetness, reminiscent of peach cake. Distinct fruitiness forces itself upon the intense bitterness. One downside was a lack of carbonation.

Explosion of tastes, bitternes set just right... Rum cake, honey, peach... I love it. If you have bitternes tolerance you would take the most out of this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dredd (701) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - OCT 16, 2014
Pour is hazy with thin white head. Aroma is a mix of tropical fruits & caramel. This transitions in to the palate with a burst of initial flavours of sweet sugar and some pineapple that finishes with a very sickening sweet mid palate that has a bit of hope bitterness mixed with burnt sugar. This was not the magical brew pairing I was expecting and hoped for sadly.Unbalanced and unpleasant.

Bottle from my ex-colleagues. Thanks a lot! Pours cloudy golden to amber with nice fluffy white head. Aroma is lots of hops, grass, citrus fruits, pineapple, caramel, malt, herbs. Taste is bitter but also quite sweet with hops, pineapple, citrus fruits, lots of malt, caramel. Lovely.

September 7, 2014. Bottle, best before July 25, 2014. Pours clear amber with a small off-white head. Aroma is caramel, pine, citrus, apricots. Taste is medium sweet, resin, caramel with a medium grassy pine bitterness. Dry grassy lasting bitter finish with caramel in the background. Medium bodied, average carbonation.

MonsterMagnet (327) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 14, 2014
Bottle, near bb date. Pours hazy orange with a white head. Aroma: citrus, tropical fruit, malts. Taste folllows, with very dominant malty sweetness and a pretty harsh bitterness. Not sure if it?s the age of the bottle, but I expected way more. Too malty, too sweet, not enough hoppy fruityness. Still very drinkable though.

tricksta_p (1342) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - OCT 11, 2014
Aroma of malt, caramel, tropical fruits, pine, grapefruit, orange peel, hops. Flavour is malty and fruity, rather sweet, with a bitter finish. Body is full, mouthfeel is sticky. Good collaboration. I found the Brewdog malty sweetness aspect to be definitely dominant, but I like this a little bit better than the Hardcore IPA so I’ll thank Mikkeller for that.

Aromat i smak w porównaniu z połączoną goryczką pochodzącą od alkoholu i chmielu niewspółmiernie nikły. Alkoholowość podbita chmielem nieco cytrynowa. Raczej słodowe niż chmielowe o dziwo, aromat i smak chmielu słabo wyczuwalne.

brnandersen (2027) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 3, 2014
Draught at Fermentoren, Cph. Clear, amber colour - almost dark orange glowing with a thin, white head. Fruity, rather hefty aroma with citrus, grass, grape, rich caramel malts, resin and pines. Taste is bitter. Full body with an oily texture and a soft carbonation. A rich beer. Finishes dry and bitter with rich caramel malts, fruits, pines and citrus. Truly an Imperial IPA.
