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. Cooper colored in glass, with slightly tanned head. Smells grapefruit, passion fruit, pine and pineapple, also caramel and grass. There’s a little bit of that alcoholic volatility too. Taste starts bitter, but changes into sweet and kinda salty. Nicely fullbodied with sticky texture. Beer is softly carbonated, which I preffer. Unconstrained bittersweet finish. Awesomeness in glass, that’s what this beer is.

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...

RW80 (341) - NETHERLANDS - APR 5, 2014
Appearance: Pours hazy red amber with a two finger head, decent retention, minor lacing. Aroma.: A full hoppy bouquette of resin, fruity and floral hops, suggesting this one big hop bomb. Taste:fruity papaya hops flavor at the front, slightly piney and floral hops and fruity hops with a caramelised malt backbone. Nicely balanced high sweetness with high bitterness, creating a perfect hop bomb. Nice rich medium high body, (but still excellent drinkable), medium carbionation. Very good IPA,, clearly one for the hop heads.

CacheManyHose (99) - HONG KONG - APR 5, 2014
Bottle. Smell is bitter piney hop, spice, sharp clove and banana. Taste is spicy resinous hop with just enough sweet malt to balance it. Body is incredibly smooth with a bit of slickness and carbonation.

Aroma very hoppy and sweet. Same with taste. Very intensive, very sweet, honey, cant really describe any fruits. The sweetness kills the taste.
