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. 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)

  2. 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)

  3. Explosive Review by Tipple

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

  4. 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)

  5. 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)

  6. 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)

  7. 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)

  8. 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)

  9. Boom Review by stuartybarlow

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

  10. 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)

Delivery was a bit of a farce. Only box 2 of 2 was initially delivered. Spoke to two people in customer services, and given different explanations. The second one was right: the first box just turned up a day later. All fine, just poor communication around the delivery.
I have used Beerhawk several times - their selections of beers are interesting and exciting. Their delivery is efficient and effective. It is a different experience and makes a great present.
If you are wondering what to buy the man in your life who enjoys good beer ... Then look no further! He waxed lyrical abouts its contents all night ????. However, from a girly point of view, may I add the suggestion that you offer a gift wrapping option to complete the excellent service provided by your company? Once again, many thanks ????
