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!

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.

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.

Hops, hops and hops, and some high abv sweetness . Take two hop loving brewers, and you would guess this beer would take like this, but it is beautifully balanced, and dangerously drinkable. Great stuff.
