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.

Bottle. Dark orange with creamy head. Aroma is really strong hops. Flavor is hops with a ton of malt. It almost is too malty. It does not have an intense hop flavor but is good. Very resinous and syrupy but is a nice beer overall.

Great golden color with medium white head. The aroma is definitely hoppy. On the other hand the taste is surprisingly sweet! Yes it is hoppy bitter, but definitely sweet too. Not really my stuff. Otherwise a good palate.

This beer represents a power couple. Each trying to out do the other. Dry hop, malt, resin, yeah both sides brought it to the party.

From tap @Keller. Sweet hoppy aroma. Orange-golden appearance. Nice soft foam. Tastes has perfect balance between hops and sweetness. Really freakin great balance. Same story with palate. One of my favorite beers. You really have to hardcore this.

agent_persik (396) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 11, 2014
Clean amber color, small beige head. Aroma of grapefruit, lychee, caramel, malt, resin, hops. Taste has caramel, malt, tropical fruits, , herbs, pine and hops - very sweet, but sweetness is well balanced with heavy bitterness, long hoppy aftertaste. Full body and soft carbonation.

Sometimes when two proffessionals do something together it’s not that good, but thankfully this is not the case! The beer is hoppy as hell but at the same time it reminds of barley wine. Much appreciated!

Keg at Mikkeller, Copenhagen. Aroma of tropical fruits, some grapefruit. Taste is a big explosion of fruity hops, a pretty perfumed taste with floral hops and a fair bittersweet finish. Definitely thinking flowers and fruits here. Very good.

Aroma: strong citrus, Appearance: orange gold, minimal head; Taste: medium bitterness, slight sourness, slight sweetness; Palate: full body, bitter finish, oily texture, soft carbonation Great fusion, retaining the hoppiness of Hardcore IPA but Adding maltiness, body and hiding alcohol. Perfect refinement.
