BrewDog Mikkeller I Hardcore You
From BrewDog – 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.
BrewDog – BrewDog Mikkeller I Hardcore You – On tap at 38 Degrees Alhambra, CA. Served in a goblet. 9.5% abv.
Appearance: Pours a deep amber orange with a subsided head. Leaves behind creamy lacing.
Aroma: Toffee and apricot.
Taste: Toffee, caramel and orangey hops.
Mouthfeel: Sticky with moderate carbonation.
Overall: I really enjoyed this. The beer was very malty in the way Atlantic IPA or Stone Emperial IPA was. The hops still did a nice job balancing out that malt profile.
