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.

Pretty typical double IPA, good hop balance, not overwhelmingly bitter but nothing that really "wows" you, pretty oily mouthfeel.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a goblet. Best before 7/25/15 printed on the label.
Pours a pale straw color with a white, somewhat foamy head. Minimal head retention with deceny lacing around the glass. Smells of sweet, bready Malt, rose petals, floral hops. Tastes sweet on the front with an extremely hoppy, bitter aftertaste. This drinks like a 6.5% abv beer not 9.5. The alcohol is masked very well. Quite drinkable dispite the high abv. Would get this again as it was overall a solid DIPA

Hazy copper. The nose is fabulous – both citrus fruits and hops are well represented. This beer is certainly hoppy enough but it also is accompanied by a touch of sweetness. The malt profile is well represented in this offering.
