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.

Poured into a pint glass
A: 1 finger of cream-colored- head with great retention. Hazy, very bubbly reddish-orange liquid. Too hazy, great head, great color.
S: Pine, dank marijuana, faint cardboard, some citrus, some under the house.
T: Sweet hop juice at first right up front. Very little alcohol, in fact it's almost like drinking wort. Some alcohol flavor increases with each sip. Not terribly hoppy flavor, but it is bitter. Tasty, but a bit old tasting. Balance and clarity improves with warming.
M: Syrupy sweet and a tad astringent.
O: 9.79 for a 12 oz bottle. Not worth it! Fair, but there are better DIPAs made closer to home that I can get fresher.

A: hazy bright orange color with about a one finger head that drops away fairly quick not much lacing with almost no alcohol legs

S: the nose was a bit orange but not a lot of resin to the smell I did pick up an almost plastic like smell

T: citrus on the taste with just a slight hint of bitterness no alcohol in the taste at all

M: fairly drinkable with a medium body

O: not all that unique a fairly standard imperial ipa it's nice although to see that European brewers are brewing in an American style rather than the other way around

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...

On-tap, served in a tulip

The body is a hazy orange amber with a fluffy ecru cap. The cap rises two fingers and settles slowly, clinging to the glass all the way down. Nice sheets of lacing. The nose is predominantly of spicy and earthy hops with a large toffee aroma and some orange citrus leaping out of the middle. On the palate, the toffee and caramel backbone are prominent, with flavors of earth, tea leaves, spice, and orange peel. A sticky mouthfeel, big and chewy with low carbonation. This is a tasty IPA blend, but it is nothing overly special.

my girlfriend and i liked this one a lot. it pours a rich cipper color, much darker than we expected, with a nice caramel colored head about two inches tall and leaving thick lacing on the sides of the glass. the nose is more balanced than i am used to in such a big ipa, english caramel malts are present amongst the heavy hopping. the hops are pineappley and piney in both nose and taste, especially as the beer warms up a bit. its very crisp in the finish, with a good dose of bitter left in the mouth. there is also some sweeter butterscotchy elements on the front end, but they are quickly overpowered. feel works well, its heavy for sure, full full body and a lot of alcohol than you can really feel. carbonation is moderate, and this is definitely a one beer per session kind of brew. overall a lot of flavor packed into this ipa, and in my mind mikkeller can do no wrong.

A. Nice light copper color. Some bubbly white head and a little bit of lacing. Semi-clear, or a bit of cloudy.

S. Mild hoppy scent. Light.

T. Very intense citrusy sweetness to it. A fruity beer. Some grape to it, as well. Mild on the hop scale. Smooth, if potent from the sweetness.

M. A very odd vegetable aftertaste. Kind of like celery.

O. Nice beer, but could probably due with some aging. A bit too hyper on the fruits if there's a complaint to be made.
