Notes/Commercial Description:
What do you get if you blend Hardcore IPA and I Beat You together and then add even more dry hops?

I Hardcore You of course. This is the return, for a limited time only, of a beer which proved firm favourite with hop heads.

I Hardcore You is a 9.5% Imperial India Pale Ale. After blending these two awesome beers, the beer is then dry hopped another two times.

look: 3.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Aroma:Sweet and hoppy, cotton candy and citrus. Amazing aroma!

Appearance:Amber, nice head volume and retention.

Taste:There is a huge hops hit right up front. Once you get past the bitterness, sweet citrus and peach flavors show themselves. The bitterness then comes around again in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel:Light to medium body, just a little astringency, very smooth for an IPA.

Drinkability:This is one of the best IPAs that I've had so far.

A: Deep ambver and slightly cloudy. Big white fluffy head, Outstanding lacing.

S: Deep dank pine. Amazingly sweet balance, but again musty, dank wet pine smell.

T: Outstanding deep bitterness followed by an incredible butter sweet malt. Its almost like a hop jolly rancher. HOP CANDY!

M: Average carbonation and deeply bitter. This beer coats my mouth in a thick honey sweetness and has the consistency of olive oil. Absolutely fabulous.

D: Fantastic. The booze is so well hidden as it blends with the hop spice. I paid for the first one on tap and it wasn't cheap, but I bought another because it was so damn tasty. I would absolutely purchase again, but the price tag, $6/bottle is steep.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass

Amber color with white head.

Caramel sweetness with lots of grapefruit. Hops is quite obvious yet not overpowering

Taste is outrageous pefection. One of the best imperial IPA I have ever had. Knowing this is from Brewdog/Mikkeller made it extra special.

Thick sweet hoppiness with more gravity than a traditional IPA. Booze is subtle with this brew.

Overall this is a super Imperial/Double IPA. Store only had one so I jumped on it. So wished there were more...

Got this one from Crabbicuss in N00b BIF 4. Thanks bud.

Poured a cloudy copper color with lots of beige head on it.

Smell is incredibly hoppy. Great aroma. I could smell this beer all night.

Taste is just as good. Great bitter hop flavor throughout. Some malt coming through to balance it. Some citrus flavors coming through in the finish.

Mouthfeel is very good. Nice smooth drinking beer.

I really enjoyed this one. Sadly it will probably be the only time I try it. Very good DIPA though that I would highly recommend!
