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.

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 (11193) - 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

birderbeerer (112) - Virginia, USA - FEB 6, 2011
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 I’ve 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. It’s worth $7 to try, but I don’t think it’s worth having again at that price.

bottle at Beer Temple in Amsterdam. Beautiful amber beer with perfectly balanced flavors. One of the best of the style.

mrmartin (669) - New York, New York, USA - FEB 2, 2011
Deep copper with quickly disappearing big white head. Very nice lacing. Citrusy nose. With hint of toasty malt. Delicate dark fruit. Citrusy hops. A little earthy and a little scotchy. Light to medium body. lingering bitter finish. Nice beer but not worth the premium I paid for it.

12 oz draft at brick store pub. Pours a beautiful orange color with a decent white head. Incredible hop aroma. taste of grapefruite, pine, yet creamy at the same time. A great beer

NosirIwont (1960) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - JAN 29, 2011
Bottle. Pours a hazy amber/orange with a off-white/yellowish head. Sweetish, hoppy aroma. Citrus notes; grape fruit. Malty backbone. Quite sweet, malty flavour with bitter hops. Finish is bitter (almost a liquorice bitterness) and malty. Lingering bitterness with grassy notes in the background. Nice. 29.01.11.
