COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
English: I Hardcore You is a 9.5% Imperial India Pale Ale, an international collaborative effort between 2 of Europeís most rock ín roll brewers. This beer is a blend of BrewDogís Hardcore IPA and Mikkellerís 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.

330ml bottle. One finger beige head, creamy & lasting; clear ruddy amber body. Loaded with bright, piney, grapefruity US hops. Slightly resiny too on the nose. Again really piney on the palate, some subtle apricot, a hint of alcohol & a sweet, chewy, nutty malt body. Medium body & carbonation with a hugely bitter lingering, lingering, lingering finish. Juicy orange notes in the aftertaste.

Bottle. Suck a fucking amazing label. Pours a nice copper color with a dense long lasting, lacing white head. Great fresh citric hop aroma. The flavor is the same, but a little bit more malt heavy than American IIPAs. But, the hops still dominate, but in a beautifully flavorful way, not in the stupidly resinous bitter way that many breweries approach the style. Medium to full bodied with low carbonation. Beautifully smooth. Overall: an absolutely fantastic IIPA with a fantastically beautiful label. I am in love.

I gotta say, foreign impy IPAs are a fraction of what their American counterparts are. This one pours a hazy, rich amber color with light off-white head. Aroma is intensely citrus, apricot, floral notes and light malt. Taste is much the same. Tastes like earthy, resinous hops, not the bright floral and citrus qualities I dig.

12 ounce from HyVee. Big white head. Orange/red body. Caramel and sweetness balance the hops. Much, much better than the I Beat U.

The aroma is pretty amazing. Honey, floral shop, slight funk to it. Perfectly balanced. Good lord I live hops. My preferences are changing i think and this beer is a reason why. A sweeter imperial for sure....I love it. Makes me excited to drink both milkkelers and brew dogs beers. Couldnít be happier. More depth and more complex than hopslam.

Draft. Smell is overpowering of floral hops. Potpouri and grass. Pours a deep amber color with nice lacing around the glass. Taste is extremely hoppy, kind of reminds me or something ive had before from the west coast. This is awesome if youre a hop/ipa lover

11.2 oz bottle from Jonathan Ron Brielle. Poured the appearance of apple cider with a cloudy amber body and an average sized slightly bubbly beige head. Aroma of old citrus pulp, caramel, vanilla and a hint of wood. Medium/full body with strong carbonation and a slight touch of alcohol heat and loads of stinging bitterness throughout. Flavor of dry wood, citrus rind, bitter hop buds, dry vanilla and caramel. Wow a beer from Brewdog that I actually really like, guess Mikkeller did most of the work on this one.

11.2 oz. bottle courtesy of lamas. Poured a cloudy rust with light tan head that left thick sheets of lace. Starts with a bit of chewy, sweet caramel which quickly evolves into juicy grapefruit. Bunch of resinous pine present. Finishes with tongue stripping bitterness. Medium bodied. No alcohol noticeable. Pretty strange to think two different brews can mesh so well. Reminded me a bit of Port Hop 15.

Rasmus40 (10699) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - FEB 7, 2011
Clear orange with an off-white head. Aroma is sweet malty - a bit like barley wine, caramel and very hoppy, grapefruit. Flavor is very sweet and very bitter lasting into a dry finish where the alcohol warms the throat. 070211

Pours a amber/copper in color. White and creamy two finger head. Some decent lacing. Aroma is huge hops and sweetness. Hops are floral and grapefruity with some tropical scents, and the sweetness is a big malt load--caramel, butter, toffee, tea. Huge, sweet, hoppy aroma. Beautiful. Taste follows the aroma. A big, balanced double ipa. Huge hops with huge malts. This is actually one of the better balanced ipas Iíve had because neither the hops nor the malt overpower the other. Both co-exist happily and largely. If anything, I would give the Smell a 4.6 and the Taste a 4.5. Dry aftertaste with a little hop stickiness. Great beer. Itís worth $7 to try, but I donít think itís worth having again at that price.
