COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
English: I Hardcore You is a 9.5% Imperial India Pale Ale, an international collaborative effort between 2 of Europeís most rock ín roll brewers. This beer is a blend of BrewDogís Hardcore IPA and Mikkellerís 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.

Bonster (180) - Jersey Shore, New Jersey, USA - DEC 26, 2010
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 Iím hit in the face with piney and citrus hops. A nice malt sweetness comes through at the end. Perfectly balanced. Thereís nothing about this beer I donít like. Spectacular!

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.

Scottishchris (175) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 22, 2014
Bottle from Cornelius in 2013 I think. Clear amber, small slightly off white head. Massive sticky hoppy nose. Strawberry and soft fruit, thick mouth feel, oily and bitter. Really good.

Madsen1635 (246) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 22, 2014
Bottle. Clear deep amber pour with small offwhite head. Intense aroma with with fresh flowers, peach and citrus. Some sweetness is felt already in the nose. Taste has short high bitterness and is quite sweet. Not balanced.

Draught, BrewDog Shepherdís Bush. Fresh batch (kegged 8 days prior to tasting). Aroma of tropical fruits, caramel, toffee, pine, grapefruit. Rich orange/amber, clear, moderate off-white head that lasts reasonably. Big sweet caramel malt to start followed by rich fruits, then finishing long decent bitter. These hops are dank. Medium to full body, oily/sticky, moderate carb. Have had this when itís old and itís a let down; so much better when itís fresh!

jackafholmes (180) - - AUG 21, 2014
Half from brew dog bar. Light amber with a small head. Incredibly fruity aroma with lychee, citrus peel and pine. Taste is sharp bitterness and lingering sour/sweetness. Prickly carbonation with medium body, alcohol heat as well. Very nice.

cvitko1 (8) - CROATIA - AUG 20, 2014 does not count
Bottle 0.33l. Expected much more :-/. intermediate with aroma. Pretty clear solid gold colour with red reflection. Lightly. Not bitter as it is supposed to be. For me as it is imperial IPA, it is to sweet.

VDuquerroux (268) - Airvault, FRANCE - AUG 17, 2014
Bottle, 33cL. Home. An orange beer with brown hues : gorgeous landscape. Medium white head. Good retention & lacing. Tropical fruity aroma, blackberry, resin. Light to heavy sugary sweet, then medium refreshing bitter. Medium body and texture, good carbonation, sweet finish with a bitter background. Overall, a good sweet>bitter ale, nice aroma. Weird but nice. I still prefer Hardcore IPA. I didnít drink yet the Mikkeller original one.

PapaVillum (425) - Valby, DENMARK - AUG 15, 2014
20 cl på fad, 9,6 % ABV, nydt hos Mikkeller & Friends på Nørrebro, 15. august 2014. Orange/brun, ufiltreret, zero skumtop, kun kant. Aroma af frugt, bondegård/stald, toast, græs, humle, malt. Excellent smag: medium til solid sødme, medium bitter, besk/bitter afslutning, medium lang eftersmag. Perlende, sticky konsistens, medium CO2, fyldig krop. Ganske fantastisk.

Bottled 330ml. -from Magic Beer Room Zagreb. Orange/amber coloured, small off-white head, piney hoppy nose. Sweet malty, caramel and fruits with piney hoppy notes. Unfortunately pretty strong sticky alcohol presence. Dry grapefruity hoppy finish. Expected better.
