I found this treasure in the $1 bargain bin at one of our local liquor stores!
It says it is "best before 01-02-14" but in April 2014, it is still outstanding.
Rich alcoholic hop-laden aroma.
Pours a bright hazy orange with a lingering light tan head.
Flavor is rich and balanced. Layers and layers of hops (almost oily with them) and malt. Some coppery notes (which I adore), some chewy wheat bread. A little bit of spices. The aftertaste starts sweet but then ends on a hoppy bitter note. Absolutely beautiful. Sunset in a glass.
Nice full thick mouthfeel. Very full with some almost oily elements (I mean this in a good way) but with a little bit of faint carbonation prickle. Almost like velvet.
An extremely good beer. The best I've had in awhile. Worth buying even if it isn't in the bargain bin. I almost wonder if the cheesy "HARDCORE" name and label design scares people off. This is a very tasty, thoughtful brew.

A hazy amber ale that pours a fluffy, off-white head that fades quickly. Smells faintly of hop tang The taste is great: malty with lots of hop tang. It has an almost metallic flavor that reminds me of a Dogfish Head 60/90. Hides the alcohol well but you'll feel it quickly. Mouthfeel is full and creamy. Very nice overall.

This beer packs a very hard punch, it kicks the shi.. out of your taste buds in a single sip! Almost comparable to what a hard liquor would do! Nice texture and body! definitely not for pussies! Overall a very dry IPA excellent for Loud music and spicy foods.

The Hardcore IPA has one of the best aromas I have smelt. The taste is amazing. It is the best IPA I have ever tasted. I work at Bayway Market as a beer specialist and I really recommend this IPA to people. Anyone in Coos Bay, Oregon that prefers a really good IPA then come into Bayway Market and pick one up. We have the best prices in town.

Bought a 4-Pack of bottles for $14.99.
A: Glowing amber poured with almost no head. Lacing not as heavy as expected.
A little bit of a letdown with the appearance.
S: What a unique nose for a DIPA. Quite floral and fruity with the alcohol apparent as well.
A little bit of tropical notes apparent as well.
T & M: Wow, what a hop bomb! Balance is not on top of this brews qualities.
I am a hop fan and this one delivers.
D: Drinkability not a strong trait of this brew. An interesting take but for the money
I don't think I'll be having this beer again.

Golden Orange on color with full lacing across the top. Strong citrus in the nose, with a touch of toffee on the back end. Tastes like it smells. Very smooth carbonation as you drink. Overall a great IPA with little hype, which means I won't have to fight for it at the stores.
