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.

Round 4 week 1. Pours nice tan amber with small off white head with little retention. Nose of pine and light lemon. Taste follows in order with them lemon and bitterness hitting the palate before the fluid does. Slight toffee and caramel. Strong cutting bitterness. Ok i suppose.

33 cl bottle. Pours clear blond with small head. Very hoppy aroma, some fruity notes are also present. Taste is sweet at first but becomes hoppy and bitter. Veru thick mouthfeel for an IIPA. Nice balance sweet/bitternes. Very enjotable beer

The aroma is predominately grapefrui floating up from a cloudy deep amber pour. A thin, short-lived white head provides minimal lacing. Taste - Malts meet Hops and shakes hands! Carmel and grapefruit fight for dominance - ying and yang of sweet and bitter. Candied sugar confronts grapefruit. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, this is a wonderful IPA experience. I enjoyed the balanced juxtaposition of sweet to bitter flavors. Well done you hardcore guys!

SimonTja (91) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 18, 2014
Pours bright bright orange with a nice foamy head. Aroma is quite floral, but not citrusy juicy as really good IPAs (for me), alcohol is present in aroma. Taste is upfront nice bitterness, evened out by malt sweetness, and then overtaken by some tropical fruit inputs with some sweetness and leaves with a bitter finish, overall decent, but alcohol is too present, and the juicyness isn’t a point.

Duft av citrusfrukter og honing. Dunkel gulbrun farge. Litt skum, heng langs kant. Nydelig smak av friske citrusfrukter med en pikant honing ettersmak som holder seg lenge.

DAA; Love the logo. Pours hazy brown orange with a lasting, leaving lacings, creamy off-white head. Nose fills with malt, caramel, dark tropic and citrus fruity.Taste is loads of sweet, loads of bitter and lasting . Balancing in a hardcore way. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

Nice lightbrown-yellow top. Fruity and sweet, medium body but I really like the real bitter taste at the ending. Would have another one, and maybe one more after that.

Barwa: bursztynowa, klarowna. Piana biała drobno pęcherzykowa, niezbyt obfita i szybko opadająca. Wysycenie niskie do średniego. Aromat: słodowy (słodki karmel), z wyraźną chmielową i cytrusową kontrą oraz lekką nutą alkoholową. Smak: zdecydowanie słodki i alkoholowy. Wyraźny akcent chmielowy, ale goryczka umiarkowana. Kupaż dwóch piw - I Beat You z Mikkellera (opisanego wcześniej) oraz Harcore IPA z BrewDoga. To drugie próbowałem już dość dawno temu i nie bardzo pamiętam, natomiast propozycję z Mikkellera degustowałem chwilę wcześniej i przyznam, że kupaż robi na mnie nieco lepsze wrażenie. Miałem okazję spożywać go już wcześniej i wtedy byłem nim zachwycony. Teraz zachwytu nie ma bo od tego czasu piłem już nieco lepsze piwa tego typu, ale z pewnością jest to nadal przyzwoity imperial. Z drugiej strony - tak jak w przypadku I Beat You - mam obawy co do świeżości prezentowanej butelki, bowiem próżno na niej szukać daty ważności. Być może z tego powodu Hardcore już tak mnie nie ruszył. Otrzymałem je jednak w gratisie przy kolejnym zamówieniu i jak mówi przysłowie darowanemu koniowi...
