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.

A Mes rate. Bottle thank to the Cad
Amazing orange Amber colour with a thin White head. Very resinous on the nose. Slightly cheesy too. Far too resinous in the mouth for me too. Thick and chewy. Lacking the finesse of the two base beers. Maybe too much dry hopping. Certainly the sum is lesser than its parts. Love both the base beers dearly but together like this they’re just not as good. Still damn good stuff but not the absolute show stopper I was expecting.

Bottle, 33cl, bought from Utobeer. Damn this is extreme. Quite a dark golden colour with an evil redding glow. This beer is a dangerous and aggressive 9.5% combo. WOW. Excellent lacing, very thin lacing, a creamy float in the middle, tangy grapefruit, massive hops, hey, VERY warming, alcohol is extremely presant but the drinkability is soo good, sweet malts, some perfume and a medium dry finish. A really great brew. I can’t wait to have this on keg. KEG PLEASE GUYS. PLEASE???

Case from Brewdog. Very rounded and very full-flavoured, fresh and bursting with grapefruit hop overload. Love the bitter sweetness that follows through, tangy, yet soft and creamy. Honey and lemon lurk in the aftertaste, but did I really taste chocoalte and caramel in there too? A massive, amber, monster of a beer.

33 cL bottle. Nice amber color. Aroma is intriguing, with hints of various fruits. Complex taste hides the higher ABV well. Taste definitely has hints of grapefruit as well as other flavors, but none of them are too overpowering. Aftertaste is a bit bitter for my liking. Very easy finish -- drank it quickly without even realizing it!

Cloudy red amber with a medium off white head. Aroma had plenty of hops, pine, grapfruits, peach and abricots. Flavor had hops, pine, grapefruits, abricot and caramelish notes. Finished seriously dry and bitter.

Draught. Quite hazy colour of deep golden/orange with a medium white head, ok lacing. Fresh sweet fruity hoppy piney aroma. Good mouthfeel. Pleasant fesh sweet piney exotic fruity hoppy flavour. Dry long lasting fruity finish. Very nice.

Adenila (1561) - DENMARK - AUG 11, 2010
Draught at Mikkeller Bar. Deep hazy brown look with a thick light brown head. The aroma has all the power you want from a II ipa. Tons of grape, citrus, fresh moved lawn, pine, resin alchohol fumes and on the malty side there is some toffee and caramel. Overwhelming bitter flavor with a thich sticky sirup palate with balance it out, and then of course the alchohol in the end. Awsome!

Bottle from Brewdog - fantastic effort, wish more brewdog beers were this good. Nose like a massive fruit garden, not dissimilar to Nanny State but with much more oomph. Full bodied with a generous kick of alcohol at the end. Top Class.

Rodders (137) - Norwich, Norfolk, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2010
Pours a dark amber with a bubbly white head, lasting. Smell is fruity cherries and some strawberry, strong piney hop with some maltiness from the fruity notes. Taste is immediate bitter washed away by berry fruitiness and finished with a round citrusy hopness. Bitter finish and nice warming alcohol. Thick body. Delicious. Filling. Well Baclanced. Lovely finish.

yespr (49898) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - AUG 5, 2010
33 cL bottle, courtesy of MagicDave6. Pours clear and golden orange with a small white head. Aroma is peachy and pine wood apple. Sweet impression. Bone dry and bitter into a dry peachy and hoppy finish. Nice one, yet slight burning.
