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.

Terminus (3545) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 13, 2011
Tap-hazy amber with a small sudsy white head-very lumpy looking. nose of aged pine needles, reson, dark malts (carmel) -smells a bit aged and oxidized. however, knowing the 2 breweries, thats maybe what they were going for with this brew. A IIPA? tastes more like a barleywine-big musty/resinous hops (think aged bigfoot). carmel, toffee and aged resnous hops. as it warmed, there was a hint of sourness in the mid of the sip. lots of woody hops on the finish with a lingering tingle on the toungue. decent but cool that i got to try yet another beer from this brewery (or 2 for that matter)

Really nice smell immediately upon opening. Taste very good as well, very hoppy; just how I like it.

KyotoLefty (9123) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUN 10, 2011
Bottle at Q-Brick. Big earthy hops, caramel malt and dark chocolate aroma. Cloudy amber-brown color with lace. Huge hop flavor: grass, hay, lots of pine and a bit of citrus. Very nice. Great balance and complex tasting hops.

Labove (427) - Rome, ITALY - JUN 4, 2011
Tra le IPA più sopravvalutate in assoluto. A me non è piaciuta affatto, l’ho trovata quasi imbevibile.

Hermod (6327) - Vantaa, FINLAND - JUN 4, 2011
Bottle @Kitty´s, Helsinki. Poured hazy dark orange color with a thick, frothy head. Lots of grapefruit and tropical fruits in aroma. Oily. Flavor is Pine, grass and grapefruit. Sweet. Very bitter finish. Nice but on the sweeter side for me.

Koelschtrinker (16800) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 1, 2011
Hopfiger Antrunk, weich, malzig-süß. Hierbei wird die Süße intensiver, gleichzeitig machen sich alkoholgestützte Gewürznoten breit. Die Biere ergänzen sich zwar hervorragend, Höhen und Tiefen heben sich dabei gegenseitig auf, so dass es in Teilen fast etwas zu rund wirkt. In der Nase etwas brennend, durch die Süße sehr süffig. Erst langsam kippen im Abgang die hopfigen Aromen zu bitteren. Ein wirklich gutes Bier! 8/12/13/12/6/12

SpringsLicker (3436) - Tennessee, USA - MAY 30, 2011
The pour is hazy orange with an average sized off-white head. Bright, fresh citrus hop aroma with some juicy malt underneath. The flavor is sweet and fruity. The hop bitterness balances but doesn’t stand out or get in the way of the malts in any way. The IIPA field has grown quite large and this one comes in about in the middle of the pack.

DialSquare (4237) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 28, 2011
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 (2726) - 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 (2823) - 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...
