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.

UPDATED: DEC 1, 2012 12oz bottle courtesy of Lauren as a Christmas gift (from Peabodys in Boone). Cloudy orange pour. Aroma is floral hops, caramel malts and light citrus. Taste is a well balanced mix of big malts and then pine hops. Really drinkable for a "big" brew. Light sticky apricot sweet on the finish. Great.

Kristall-König (2498) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - MAY 28, 2011
Ein Gemeinschaftsprojekt von Brewdog und Mikkeller. Im Geruch intensiv harzig und zitrusartig. Im Antrunk gleichfalls zitrusaromatische Hopfentöne, vermischt mit Noten von Baumharz. Im weiteren Verlauf verstärkt sich diese Stimmung, untermauert durch eine angenehm wirkende Alkoholspur. Kräftig bitter zitrusartig abfließend. Ausgezeichnet!Test vom 1.11.2010, Gebinde: Glasflasche

baraciisch (2331) - California, USA - MAY 25, 2011
Deep cloudy burnt orange in color... Aroma of sweet malts, citrus hops... Flavor is fairly bitter and dry initially, more dry than you would think from the aroma.... Almost like chewing on hops, not as enjoyable as I’d hoped from these two great breweries...

oteyj (2139) - New Hampshire, USA - MAY 25, 2011
Clear amber pour with a small white froth. The nose holds huge orange peel citrus, with necar fruits, fruit cocktail, herbal evergreen, and caramel biscuit. The flavor is much heavier on the malt side, with toffee, caramel, and bread prevailing. The hop profile is very citrus oriented, with grapefruit and orange being most prevalent. The palate is thick and rich for the style with a sticky sweet resinous finish.

Bottle. Pours a clear and copper beer with an offwhite head. The aroma is malt, caramel and hops with pine. The flavor follows the nose. The palate is bitterness. Overall a good beer.

peterclash (42) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 24, 2011
Pours beautifully with a medium beige head and a rusty orange body, smells lovely of fresh citrus hops and a bit of sweetness. So the taste nearly had to be a dissapointment. Its good but like every beer I’ve been drinking from Brew Dog It’s not balanced, and the wrong ingredience is the caramel malt I guess. It’s absolutely possible to feel the strong taste of alcohol, but the great amount of hops still makes this beer enjoyable. It’s bitter, in a good way.

Burnt caramel sugar body along with some spicy pine and citrus hops. Rich mouthfeel too.

HonusWagner (1743) - Florida, USA - MAY 23, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 1, 2011 Caramel sweetness and citrus hoppy character. Much like Stella 0, has a sort of strange clash between malt and hops rather than a harmony. Balance isn’t all there, and there is too much malt for an IPA this hoppy IMO. Merely good.
