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.

Amberish orange with a weak head. Fruity and citric aromas, all seems dominated by the hops. Very dry and bitter ending with a medium sweet base.

Lots of piney hops in the aroma, with some citrus. Hops are also heavy in the flavor, but also with some malt sweetness and some breadiness. Very smooth considering the high alcohol content. A really good beer for hopheads, but a little pricey for the rest of us.

Big, foamy, lasting head with tightly packed bubbles. Murky amber hue. Very hoppy and inviting nose with deep aromas. Chewy-ish texture, especially after it warms up a bit. Bold flavors. Malts are toasty with some toffee-like sweetness, along with some sappy wood in the background. Biting hops are very green and garden-like with bright notes of grass, resin and pine. Big alcohol is hidden well but it definitely warms the throat. Great beer.

Bottle. Pours a hazed ruby amber with a medium sized beige head that falls quickly. Still a good amount of resinous pine and citrus, toast and malt. Smooth, medium bodied. Quite malty with a touch of sweet citrus and vague hints of age. Warming alcohol and smooth malt. Slowly developing touches of bitterness and caramel.

Pours a three finger light khaki head that fades slowly to a thin layer leaving a good lace. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Cloudy amber color. Malty, hoppy and flavor is good sweet malts with the balancing hops, some lingering bitter aftertaste. Good DIPA but Brewdog’s regular DIPA (ABV 9.2%) is just as good at half the price. Pricey at $7.85 for a 330ml bottle from Colonial Spirits, Acton, MA.

Pour is a cloudy orange/brown with a white head. Aroma is heavy on malt with faint grapefruit, hops. Taste is same. Medium to full bodied for style, heavy mouthfeel. Great beer.

Prokroustis (745) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - JUL 14, 2011
Very dark orange body with a big white head. Intense hoppy aroma with grapefruit, caramel, pine. Amazing bittersweet flavour with lots of hops, but not overwhelmingly bitter as there is a sweet tone as well. Awsome.

33 cl bottle, $7 @ Family Liquors. Do I need to keep Impy IPAs around til they go stale? No! I’m popping this thing. Pours orange/amber and pretty clear for a dry-hopped beer. Big foamy IPA head. Citrus hop nose, but a little more distinctive than others,maybe because it seems a little "drier?" Or the mellowing influence of some European hops. There’s even a bit of grain in the nose. Anyhoo… the taste is a big bomb burst of hop, pine and citrus (orange) up front. Very easy drinking, with little alcohol heat… but then the complex hop character wants to be my "pal,"" and ends up sleeping on my couch for a week. Dry finish; slightly astringent,but pleasantly so,and some savory notes to make my tongue curl downward.

Hazy amber/orange color; Medium slightly creamy body; Aroma of floral hops, caramel malt, & citrus; Flavor of sweet malt, caramel/toffee, pine hops, some fruit, and citrus (notably orange & grapefruit); Finish is bitter; Nicely balanced; Overall, surprisingly mellow and subdued - good though.

33cl bottle from Beer Revolution. Consumed on the Caltrain, a great ticking location. The aroma is a bit on the maltier side with just a bit of hoppiness, on the earthier side. The flavor is also a bit lacking in hoppiness. Big caramel malt with some earthy and mildly citrusy hoppiness. Medium-full bodied with average carbonation level. Medium-bodied with mild syrupiness and average carbonation. Overall not so good, at least compared to what I expected.
