English: I Hardcore You is a 9.5% Imperial India Pale Ale, an international collaborative effort between 2 of Europes most rock n roll brewers. This beer is a blend of BrewDogs Hardcore IPA and Mikkellers 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.

[3246-20100802] Bottle. Rich hoppy resin tree bark aroma has hints of wood barrel. Clear, amber orange body with a medium-lasting foamy white head. Bitter resin hops flavour lingers with a rich and leafy characteristic. Medium body. This is more or less the perfect marriage of breweries making an awesome beer.

I picked this up at Armanettis in Chicago, IL, enjoyed on a early November warm night watching TV. A beer named "I Hardcore You" was something I just couldnt pass up, and Im glad I didnt. Appearance is like a sludgy golden amber with a large white frothy head. Aroma rich in caramel malt and extensive hops. Taste is excellent and unique for a DIPA. In a way, the melding of caramel and citrus hops results in a unique strawberry-like flavor that I havent had before. The alcohol does kick you a bit, but its very smooth as well and somewhat creamy. Everything blends together very well though, excellent.

Brutal and bitter! Awesome transeuro IPA! Pours a golden/amber clear with lots of head. Nose is juniper, pine and grass. Flavor is juniper, pine and grass. Excellent collab!

At a tasting, thanks DSG: in the aroma huge hops, citrus, guava, mango, lychee, peach, rose water, very aromatic, in the flavor there is a strong malt backbone with less hoppy flavor, bisquity bready malt with some caramel, very bitter aftertaste, great beer.

Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite - Jersey City, 11/5/10

Aroma: The nose has fresh, ripe grapefruit, peach, apricot, a little orange, and some pine
Appearance: A murky orangish-brown colored beer with a small, frothy white head with decent lace
Flavor: The taste is rather hoppy, like the nose, sweet citrus fruits and lots of bitter hoppiness
Palate: The body is medium-full, with soft carbonation, and it is smooth, sticky and chewy on the mouth
Overall Impression: I thought this one sounded like a pretty good collaboration idea right here. Two of the most experimental European breweries working together on a big DIPA? Yes, please! Well, this one was pretty solid, but not quite as great as I wanted it to be. I thought it has a very nice nose, but could have been a little bigger, despite that small criticism, this is still a very good beer for sure.

Fantastic brew and very well balanced. Pours golden yellow, Aroma is a bit lost on me, but thats a running theme with me. Has the mouthfeel of a very hefty, malty ale, but has a taste thats not so malty-overwhelming as the mouthfeel makes me expect. Very citrusy, floral hops with a solid malt backbone thats not overly sweet. One of the most well balanced beers Ive ever tried. Unfortunately four of us shared this 12 oz. bottle, so it was gone way too fast.

Bottle. Nice clear amber colour with a beautiful creamy foam with nice retention. Aroma is a symphony of exotic fruits, hops and well-balanced malts. Lots of pine, simcoe, mango and caramel. Also some sugar and maybe a slight bit of honey. Taste is equally equilibristic and awesome. The sweetness and bitterness is perfectly balanced, and, coupled with the many exotic fruits, this blend becomes a better beer than either of its contributors. Carbonation is mild and pleasant and it reveals little of the high alcohol content.

On tap at the Local Option ; Pours a solid dark, cloudy golden hue with whitish head I guess (low level lighting) - I had this one right after the Green Gold; Anyway - Poured into a trappist glass, I guess. Which I find questionable - Whatever. Nice lacing here in comparison to the Green Gold - Aromas are fairly similar - a floral bouquet on the nose with an earthy quality as well. Flavors are much bigger though, sticky to be sure. What this brew retains is that creamy element which I do quite enjoy as its a bit different than what Ive come to expect from an IPA of any kind thus far - Nice earthy malt tones try to overcome the very big bitter piney floral hops - Again I dont get much citrus here, however, which is my only disappointment. Excellent brew
