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.

Adenila (1560) - 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.

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.

Its an honor to be the first to rate this masterdont of a imperial IPA from two of the big rollers on the european beer scene. Both a seeking to pass bounderies and limits, both a not afraid to go to extreme and both normaly succeeds in creating very balanced and damn interesting beers that a well worth the trouble. This is a blend of two great beers, and telling by the aroma when uncapped the blend and the dryhoppin has brought it two a whole new level. I don´t think I have ever been blasted soo much blooming and citric hops in my face after pouring a beer. Its crazy and soooo dilicious. Some malts and caramels creates a nice background to the wide spectrum of hops. The fact that this beer is new and fresh off cause makes the dry hopping even more enjoyable. The Pour is dark orange with a hazy glow topped with a inch high fluffy white crown. The taste is strong and bitter again with all the hops touring your mouth rapidly. A lot of sweetness and a faint bitterness takes you all the way to the finishing point where it sticks around for a long time. You sense the alcohol as a pickin and warm feeling. Sweetness like from vanilla caramels and a wide range of hoppy impressions that seems to balance very well. The palate is medium to thick and backs this pretty heavy beer nicely. It actually appears very drinkable which could be quite dangerous... its hardcore
