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.

esox (1177) - Oulu, FINLAND - APR 24, 2011
Amber colour, somewhat frothy head. Sweetish exotic fruitiness, ripe berries, lots of resins, almost peppery, more citrusy hops in the finish. Ai hint of vegetably notes. Not too sweet, still sturdy with caramel and cookies. Intense bitterness, lingering and dryish finish. Very smooth texture. Very drinkable and tasty beer.

jfb (4559) - Freising, GERMANY - APR 24, 2011
(bottle) pours a slightly hazy ruby-amber colour with a creamy off-white head. aroma of tropical fruit and a little too much resin, which makes it almost savoury, with lots of oranges, straciatella, some caramel and milk chocolate. flavour is mostly the same, lots of tropical fruits over a sweet malty backdrop, with a huge bitter finish, alcohol is not detectable. medium-bodied with average carbonation.

Nickls (1956) - Kingstowne, Virginia, USA - APR 22, 2011
Tap, Mikkeller bar. Pours an almost muddy orange brown color with bright orange highlights, with a very minimal head given with the pour. Really a hop bomb in the aroma, juicy, and very grapefruit driven with some sweet fruitiness in the aroma as well. Some caramel sneaks into the taste, but really stays aggressive with the hops, nice hop sting, and grapefruit drying in the finish. Medium body that’s a little sticky. Nice stuff fresh.

This is perfect beer, I just had one and I love Ipas. Had tried the Brewdog Hardcore and was wonderful, this one is even better. what a flavou, smell and taste...My favourite beer so far, along with Rochefort 10 and St. Bernardus 12 (haven’t tried Westvleteren 12). I am now gonna try Imperial Stouts so as to cover all, and see if they are so great.

Balazs (787) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - APR 20, 2011
Bottle from Total Wine, Sterling. Poured murky, with amber color and a tan, lacing head. Fruity aroma with honey, cinnamon, apple, grapes. Sweet taste with well balanced hoppiness. Medium dense, oily body with low carbonation. Sweet and bitter aftertaste. Expected a bit better, but still very good.

0,33 l bottle courtesy of Balazs, thanks!
Deep amber-reddish-orange one with a nice foamy tan head. Honey and caramel based aroma with raisins, huge ammount of resin and herbal hops. Nice oily texture, honey and caramel at first, vanilla, raisins. After the first slip the hope bits a big with their own resiny, herbal character, stays in the dry aftertaste. Wow!

Damico (2870) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 20, 2011
Wow - a perfect blend from these two brews. The beer pours dark amber with a nice head on top. The aroma is sweet, malty, and hoppy, smooth and pleasant in the nose. The flavor is delicious - sweet, juicy, malty, hoppy, and the body is perfectly balanced with all of these flavors. This collaborations is awesome - best Brew Dog beer I think I’ve ever tasted.
