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.

Clear medium amber with a thick creamy, somewhat lasting, off-white, full lacy head. Smells of malt and caramel with lots of hops and citrus hops (orange and grapefruit). Medium to fill oily smooth body with soft carbonation. Tastes of pine that lingers. Sweet caramel, ripe fruit and lots of citrus grapefruit orange peel. The finish is dry grassy and hoppy. More herbal than expected. Complex and yummy.

Hoppy aroma and taste. A rather nice sweetish taste and aftertaste behind the hoppy bitterness. Surprisingly well balanced.

Une IPA forte, houblon bien présent mais accessible. Côté fruité important. Bouteille bue au bar La tête à l’envers, Vincennes, France, le 22/09/2013.

NeuroPliny (162) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 19, 2014
As soon as this quadrupel dry-hoped IPA was poured, hoppy goodness wafted through the room carrying notes of tropical fruit and citrus (grapefruit, pineapple, banana, orange peel, mango, guava). Orange-amber in colour with a generous yellow head. Flavour is hoppy to be sure with grapefruit and pine resin, but it is well balanced by tropical fruit and sweetness. Moderate body. Amazing IPA that can hold its own with the very best.

Hazy deep amber color, small off white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, peach, grapefruit, red orange, touch of pine. Medium sweet, medium bitter taste. Full body, soft carbonation. Creamy, smooth and perfectly balanced. Wonderful.

Metalchopz (2364) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 11, 2014
Enjoyed at Pub Italia. Hazy golden-amber colour with a beige creamy head, decent retention and lacing. Beautiful fruity aromas of oranges and mild grass. Sweet taste between the fruit and the caramel. Nice grassy hops, but not too crazy, and the bitterness is smooth. Mild zest in the aftertaste. Wow ! What a nice Impy IPA that has loads of sweet citrus over the hops.

Le subtil mélange des deux impériales Pale Ale des brasseries parmi les plus innovantes de l’univers brassicole européen.Du lourd.Conseil, goûter l’Harcore, une heure après la i Beat yoU puis une heure après l’I Hardcore YoU.

Ceci est une Imperial Ipa, donc ca devrait être un truc trés houblonné, vu le nom, on peut s’attendre à un truc à déchausser les chicots. C’est une collaboration entre le plus prolifique des brasseurs et la plus ( voir ce que j’en pense dans le post sur la punk Ipa) des brasseries, enfin collab , en fait un mélange entre l’excellente hardcore ipa des écossais et la jamais goutée I beat you du danois; aprés le blend , ils ont refait un houblonnage à sec (..) au cas où...trés belle couleur dorée, flamboyant,une belle mousse blanc cassée, belle carbonation. Au nez, hoppy hoppy hoppy, floral, fruité.en bouche, trés belle viscosité, sucré, fruits tropiiiiicaux, et trés vite, une belle et grosse amertume te prend les parties sensibles..à l’amertume, c’est à dire au fond de la langu, sur les cotés.. La longueur en bouche est énorme, trés agréable.. belle réussite,et pas besoin d’aller chez le chicologue aprés....
