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. Aroma of lots of grapefruit, lots of malt, and lots of alcohol. Flavor heavy sweet, heavy bitter, alcohol still abounds. Pretty straightforward, hops are nice but very one-note. Just too much alcohol to be enjoyable for more than a few sips.

jdjuice (315) - Kumamoto, JAPAN - JUL 24, 2014
Nice piney hops all over the nose. First sip is really sweet, but not syrupy like some IIPAs can be. Hops come back on the finish, not as overpowering as I expected, but quite pleasant. Alcohol is hidden well, this is a dangerous brew.

mgajdaczewa (457) - Katowice, POLAND - JUL 21, 2014
W aromacie uderza potęga chmielu, jest rześko a zarazem jest pełnia i bogactwo aromatu, grejpfrut, ananas, mango i pewnie masa innych owoców. W smaku pełne, słodkie z wysoką goryczką, ale wszystko wspaniale zbalansowane. Owoce tropikalne, lekkie przyprawy i zioła na finiszu. Alkohol mógłby być lepiej ukryty, ale tragedii nie ma. Doskonały, degustacyjny trunek.

circinus (209) - SWEDEN - JUL 21, 2014
Bottle 33 cl from Barleywine, CPH. Hazy dark orange with a yellowish head. Fudge, orange marmelade, quite sweet, candied fruit?. Medium body, medium carbonation, sweet finish. Way too sweet for my taste. Probably old bottle?

Franzen (305) - SWEDEN - JUL 21, 2014
Caramell and alcohol in the aroma with some fruitiness not much hops. Hazy orange white head. Malty sweet caramelly not what I expect from an IIPA. Full body low carbonation. It is to sweet and malty with not much hops, brewwd in march so It shouldn’t just be age, a dissapointement.

slawek (104) - Kraków, POLAND - JUL 14, 2014
Bottle. Clear, amber body. Aroma: medium, spruce, melon Taste: Very sweet with strong bitter finish. Flavor of sweet candy with alcohol. Bit alcoholic, not aromatic enough, too sweet.

rockana (216) - Zadar/Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 11, 2014
Pours clear amber with big whitw head. Fruity nose. Aroma is herbal, flowery, a bit grassy and fruity. Taste is bitter covered by sweetness. It has a lot of alochol but it is covered by sweetness, so that work great for me.

Piero1987 (652) - Iglesias, ITALY - JUL 8, 2014
Light red color with big head. Nice malty and hoppy aroma, big citrus resin herbal and zesty. At taste is light sweet with less bitterness i hope, expolosion mix of tropical fruit flavour and nice malt.
