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.

11.2 oz bottle from New Beer Dist. In NY. Hazy, orange amber pour with a huge head. Awesome lacing on the glass. Aroma is outstanding, citrus and pine hops all the way with a bit malt. I taste the sweet fruit notes up front briefly then I’m hit in the face with piney and citrus hops. A nice malt sweetness comes through at the end. Perfectly balanced. There’s nothing about this beer I don’t like. Spectacular!

Aromat: Słodkie owoce, cytrusy. Smak. Słodkie z wysoką goryczka i duza dawką owoców tropikalnych. Jest to dość słodka interpretacja IIPA nie zmienia to jednak faktu że bardzo dobra .

Deep gold pour with a decent off white head. Malty, citrus, tropical aromas, and similar taste, sweetish, toffee, with nice big piney bitterness at the end.

Deep honey gold; off white head with fine bubbled lacing. Grassy pine and pithy citrus hops in the nose. A bit boring

Possibly the best, most balanced, super hoppy Imp IPA I have had. Sweetness from a fair bit of malt and a hop kick to match, all made in hop heaven

Bardzo udana współpraca ! Piwo przyjemne, podkreślone i nie przesadzone. Idealne w stylu i bez wad. Klarowność jest ! Aromat bardzo przyjemny owocowy też jest ! Goryczka jest ! Polecam bo bardzo dobrze reprezentuje styl :]

Można? Można! Kolejny przykład na blend dwóch piw w którym wszystko gra. No i chyba najlepsza DIPA jaką kiedykolwiek piłem.

Look - Dark apple juice body. Thin white head even with strong pour. No lacing. Smell - Malt. Malt. Malt. Hops are stirred up when swirled. Taste - Malt. Grass. Wheat. Hard candy. Not bitter until the after taste. Feel - Medium to heavy body. Carbonation heavier than what look hints. Alcohol is warm but not sticky. Overall - This is not what I was looking for in a Brew Dog / Mikkeller. Very candied malt. Almost a barley wine and not what I want in an imperial IPA. Fours across the board for the hope I had a bad/old bottle AND would rate well if labelled as a strong ale or barley wine.

(bottle) aroma of honey, citrus, tropical fruit; bright honey amber colour with a small beige head; rich, balance flavour with a long, light bitter finish; oily palate; excellent

Pours a slightly golden yellow. Aroma is grapefruit and some malty spirit. Taste is caramel, slight mandarin and some alco heat.

ctipping (276) - Florida, USA - JUN 18, 2015
12 oz. bottled poured into a pint glass. Deep orange color, very hazy. Pours with a good head and good lacing. Just too dark and too sedimenty, though. Looks like a homebrew DIPA. Hoppy and a bit boozy. Estery. A little messy. Tastes of fruity hops and fruity esters. Sweet caramel malt. Medium heavy body with medium carbonation. Warming finish. Not bad, not fantastic. Some funny off-flavors going on, but not too offensive.
