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: AUG 14, 2011 Pours clear ruby mahogany with small bubbly tanned head leaving some lacing. Aroma is hoppy, cat bin, prunes, caramel and malts. Lean velvety mouthfeel. Flavor is first slightly sweet and fruity, nice balanced hoppy bitterness, fidges, malty and then some salty tones. Very nice. Fruity malty palate. Finishes with a very pleasant round slightly fruity sweet and longlived hoppy aftertaste.

Kan det bli för mycket av det goda. Söt och humlig. Doft av friterad lök och rått kött. Tar vid i smakerna men mer åt humlejuice. Häftig men god. Tja?

33cl bottle at Håndverkerstuene. Amber and dark orange colour with a minimal head. Aroma is massive hops and kiwi and other assorted fruits. Flavour is bitter, yet hoppy. Lots of kiwi, bitterness and other tropical fruits. Medium long aftertaste.

330 ml bottle @ Patricks. Deep red body with a diminishing big off-white head. Delicious aroma of different citric fruit, pine, malt and caramel, really complex and wonderful. Flavor is sweet but balanced malty, some caramel, strong citric fruit, pine and really bitter. Soft, sweet maltflavor and almost a bit rough bitterness makes a lovely combo and becomes rally nice integrated with fruit and a little hint of warming alcohol. Aftertaste is almost like forever with caramel, fruit and bitterness. Very well made.

medium orange with large white head. nose of herbal and citrus hops with touches of alcohol and malt. firm bitterness before a solid herbal and citrus hop flavor with a touch of munich or low crystal malt with alcohol providing nice depth. english esters are definitely strongly present. the residual sweetness in this is quite low for the style resulting in a very drinkable brew. overall it is a very well crafted double ipa, that even though aged longer than desired it is a great example that would likely be a classic example if fresh

Bottle 330ml @ Patricks Pub og Restaurant, Kristiansand
Pours cloudy dark amber with off-white head. Aroma has notes of spices, pine, grass and fruity hops. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter with an average bitter well rounded alcohol finish. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

A nice blend of two IPAs. I wish this came in a 22 instead of a 12, it was pretty solid.

Bottle, at Patricks, shared by Meilby. An unclear, dark amber to copper colored beer with a finger-thick, diminishing, off-white head. Some alcohol initially, then the hops kick in with lots of pine cones and citrus peel. Caramel notes and mats too. The flavor is both sweet and bitter, mostly on the hoppy side. Pine cones and resins subdue the malty sweetness. It’s full-bodied, warming and nicely carbonated, with a long, bitter finish. A good dash of pine cone flavor too. A manly beer, the typical one-hour beer that you don’t rush down the throat. Tasteful and big. An nice. 110224

Sweet and doughy nose, with lots of cookie dough and graham cracker, the citrus hops are there too along with light fruit juice notes. Taste is moderately sweet, moderately bitter, lots of caramel and toffee, lots of booze, some light grapefruit and apricot notes, a bit of strawberry and fruit punch, and again, more cookie dough. Texture is rather soft and just a tad creamy, best thing about this brew.
