BrewDog Hardcore IPA

BrewDog Hardcore IPA


150 IBUs and 9.2% ABV. Yes, Brewdog, that's Hardcore. As Brewdog themselves so eloquently state, this beer has been "hopped to hell, then dry-hopped to hell too." And they aren't kidding.

The Hardcore IPA is chocked full of the American Centennial, Columbus, and Simcoe hops which present themselves with some intense citrus, pine, and spicy notes. Backed up by a strong malty backbone with notes of whisky, rum, and liquid candy and its Brewdog-esque lingering bitterness, this beer is dangerously good. Drink slowly!

  1. Life Changing Goodness Review by Beer Buddy

    The beer that got me off cask ale and onto the wonders of craft. A boozy, hoppy, sweet, dry flavour bomb of goodness. perfect for end of a session or cheeky celebration. Stunning. (Posted on 02/05/2016)

  2. Up to their usual high standard Review by Mick

    Is it me or is everything that comes out of Brewdog really special? Absolutely loved this. Hits every taste bud head-on. Loads of flavours swirling around then when its gone you have the usual bitter after-burn. Wow. How do they do it? (Posted on 02/05/2016)

  3. The Daddy! Review by Beer Buddy

    The beer that got me into craft beer. Boozy, hoppy, dry and sweet all at the same time. This is adventure in a glass. The perfect way to finish a session. Simply stunning. (Posted on 25/04/2016)

  4. Lovely IPA Review by Jo

    Strong spicy citrus aroma, bitter whiskey taste, heavy mouthfeel, will be trying again. (Posted on 17/04/2016)

  5. More sugar than spice Review by Changefromaten

    I was expecting this beer to have a really spiky, hoppy character but I was pleased to find a more balanced toffee malt flavor that was really sweet.

    A lovely, very drinkable brew considering its strength. (Posted on 17/04/2016)

  6. Typical Brewdog Review by Llamaman

    A typical Brewdog beer - subtle, with a careful balance of malt and gentle hops...
    ... erm, no.
    True to form, this is a massive hop monster. Full-on assault on the taste buds with a massive alcoholic kick to boot. (Posted on 01/04/2016)

  7. Dangerous... Review by Danny

    This stuff is rocket fuel! A strong 9.2% imperial that is hoppy and juicy with an alcohol kick. Way too easy to drink. (Posted on 02/02/2016)

  8. OMG Review by Terrier

    How did they manage to fit so much in a bottle. I am a long standing fan of BrewDog and this beer takes it to a new level. Overall an outstanding beer well worth sampling. (Posted on 02/01/2016)

  9. Hoppy Perfection Review by Ady Gray

    If you want that hopped-up, super-bitter brew then BrewDog have smashed it with this beast. 150 IBUs is a mark many would shy away from...but this is BrewDog!!! (Posted on 15/12/2015)

  10. Strong in abv, stronger in flavour Review by Seanp1916

    At 9.2% you are immediately fooled into thinking this will be a dark syrup like beer that you could eat with a spoon. Nothing of the sort!!! Very smooth with a lovely caramel aftertone!!! Excellent work brew-dog there is still hope for Scottish brewing with you guys! (Posted on 26/10/2015)

  11. A superb, strong IPA Review by Beer Baron

    The only thing small about this beer is the bottle! Huge flavours, massive happiness and high abv makes this a great IPA, though definitely not a session ale!

    Great work BrewDog! Perhaps there could be a Brew Dog mixed case soon (hint!!) (Posted on 26/10/2015)

  12. Explosive Review by Tipple

    Huge beer - toffee malt, big hops and a rich mouthfeel. Proceed with caution. (Posted on 21/10/2015)

  13. Rewards careful planning Review by Llamaman

    The ABV told me this wasn't a glugging brew so it I plonked it in the fridge to see how it developed (I normally drink my ales at room temp).
    It pours a beautiful amber colour and what little heads there is disappeared in a puff of smoke. The initial taste at fridge temp was all hops - the malt was barely noticeable. As it warmed up, the balance came into focus and the toffee notes from the malt helped mellow out the harsher hops notes.
    Once it hit room temperature, the hops were back in control, with the aroma so strong it made me sneeze!

    Catch it at the right temperature and this is a fantastic ale. If you're normally a lazy room-temperature drinker, plonk it in the fridge for a bit (but don't let it get too cold) to really get the best out of it. (Posted on 20/10/2015)

  14. Solid as a rock Review by Mr Egg White

    I was actually sent the wrong beer by mistake but the guys at beer hawk immediately refunded the cost of it without a fuss and were very good about it. Having said that I have had this before and I was very impressed. From what I remember its a very solid, very big IPA with a lot going for it. Hence 5 stars! (Posted on 05/09/2015)

  15. Chuffin' HARDCORE! Review by interzen

    Brewdog - love 'em or loathe 'em, you can't deny that they can brew some pretty good beers, and with Hardcore the hype and hyperbole are actually justified.

    This is big-hitting IPA with hops turned all the way up to 11 and beyond, even before you've got it out of the bottle. Taste-wise, it's balanced by a lovely sweetness which is the only hint you'll have that malts are present. It balances everything out perfectly.

    Absolutely massive, in taste, smell and ABV (9.2%) - treat it with respect on school nights, but there's enough going on that it demands careful attention to get the most out of it. (Posted on 06/07/2015)

  16. nice Review by Paul

    I'm a IPA fan and this is a nice one. Crazy strong and very hardcore... (Posted on 05/07/2015)

  17. 180 bpm Review by Pinchy

    HARDCORE! If this were music it would indeed be 180bpm nosebleed techno. Minimal nose, but TASTE! Hoppy, citrus, grapefruit. You'll enjoy this one.
    HARDCORE! YOU KNOW THE SCORE! 9.2%ABV (Posted on 22/05/2015)

  18. Boom Review by stuartybarlow

    Massive flavours. Grapefruit, citrus and a blast of spice. (Posted on 18/02/2015)

  19. BrewDog you beautiful creation! Review by MegaHops

    BrewDog have somehow managed to create drinks which I liken to nectar, they are so good on every level. All BrewDog beers are full of flavour and provide what you'd expect from a premium beer. Moreover the BewDog bars that are sprouting are a phenomenon in their own right. Well worth a buy and visit one of their bars if your passing. (Posted on 25/11/2014)

Ordered a 3 month beer club for hubby for his bday. Received one package but yet to receive the second or third. Called 3 times this week for answers and not received a call back. Won't recommend or use these again. Shame really.
I'm very happy with the service I received at Beer Hawk. I was after a special release beer that had sold out very quickly. I sent Beer Hawk a tweet asking if there were any extra bottles available and Tor replied promptly that he would have a look in the warehouse. He found some bottles which were then delivered promptly, packaging was good.
Ordered after seeing a promo offer in a newspaper.
