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.

Pours a cloudy amber with a thin, soapy beige head that has decent retention and leaves many tiny specs of lacing. Aroma is big on citrus and resinous hops, tropical fruit and floral notes, vanilla, a hint of toast and sweet caramel. Flavor is sweet malt, passion fruit heavy tropical notes, berry scented soap, caramel, straw, sort of heavy bready yeast and resinous notes to the finish. Palate is heavy bodied with an oily entry and dry, but oily finish and light, but fervent carbonation.

Bottle->tulip: pours a huge, rocky, light brown head that exhibits good lacing atop a very murky, dark orange body. Aroma of hops, hops, and hops, along with a very pleasing sweetness. The body is full, starting out mildly sweet, ending slightly astringent with the aftertaste lingering between sips. This beer is pure enjoyment from start to finish.

hazy orange with a pillowy white head. citrus aroma slightly diminished by the booze notes, but still really nice. Really nice hop taste that ramps up quickly. Very resinous feel in the mouth, leaving a nice sticky bitter finish. pretty tasty, but i think i like the blended beers better by themselves

Apricot color. White foam. Dried fruits, caramel and freshly cut grass in the nose. Sweetness and bitterness explodes in your mouth. Fairly complex.

Date: 3/19/2011 Source:Butters Spicy herbal hop notes over caramel in aroma. Slightly cloudy deep orange golden with fine white head. Resiny floral hops over moderate caramel sweetness. Moderately grainy under all the hops. Medium body and mouth. Very bitter with some bitter hop astringency lingering.

Sampled at the Richmond 14th Gathering. Pretty sure this was an older bottler. Sweet and lovely honey hops is stronger on the flavor than the nose. Lingering bittersweet finish. Love the backstory and the name.

11.2 ounce (330 ml) bottle. Served in a snifter, the beer pours a murky dark orange/amber color with a half inch light tan head that didnít stick around for too long. Thereís a small amount of lacing left on the glass. Aroma is citrusy (tropical fruit, orange) and pine hops, bready malt, and some caramel. The taste is similar to the aroma, the hoppy and malty flavors are balanced for the most part but the hops are still stronger. Thereís citrusy (grapefruit, orange peel) and pine hops, along with bready and caramel malt. Good hoppy bitter finish. Mouthfeel/body is medium, itís creamy and a bit slick. I think this is a solid overall brew, due to the price ($6.99 a bottle) I wouldnít buy it very often but itís definitely worth trying. I thought it was good.

33 cl bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a small off-white head. Has a malty piney hoppy grapefruit aroma. Fruity malty hoppy bitter grapefruit and pine needles flavor. Has a warming malty very hoppy bitter grapefruit finish.

From a 330ml bottle on 18/3/2011. Batch no.174. Pours a cloudy dark orange with a fine good sized head. This has a huge, lovely aroma of citrus fruits and pine hops, along a lots of caramel malt. Flavour wise it has lost of sweet caramel, toffee, orange and peach, which is set off by some powerful grapefruity hop action, which never overwhelms. The palate is almost creamy. This is superbly balanced brew - a perfect mix of sweet and bitter. A fantastic creation from two great brewers.

This is the first IPA that I would describe the *aroma* as resiny! Itís like sticking your head in a barrel full of hops! Really fresh, pungent hops. Nice tan body with a good and lasting off-white head. The big surprise here is that the hops in the flavor arenít quite as strong as the aroma would suggest. Donít get me wrong, they are *very* strong, but itís different from some of the West Coast USA IPAs in that dimension. This is an extraordinarily well balanced IPA for as big as it is. The malt is a strong, sweet counter to the bitterness of the hops. Strong grapefruit *and* pine show up here with some citrus pith in the aftertaste. Leaves an almost stinging bitterness behind thatís washed away by the next sip, only to build upon the previous. I love that this is a collaborative mix of beers between 2 great breweries, but it seems like a natural formulation.
