COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In Mikkeller we have over the years done ​​many collaboration brews. However, the last one we did was a little unusual – we collaborated with the Swedish tattoo studio Crooked Moon. The two brothers Jacob and Jonas Pedersen that run Crooked Moon Tattoo in Helsingborg wanted to celebrate their tattoo studio’s first birthday with a big party, and what could be more natural than to do it with a beer in their own name? The two brothers have designed the labels for this beer. And therefore this beer comes with two different labels. One by of Jacob, and the other by Jonas. The beer is just like a Crooked Moon tattoo: strong and powerful. In this case we are talking about a violently hoppy double IPA with 9% alcohol. You’ll find Crooked Moon / Mikkeller DIPA find on draft and bottled. The picture show the two labels – Jacob’s label design to the left and of course then, Jonas’ to the right.En dobbelt india pale ale.

tfredvik (1361) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 10, 2015
Cloudy medium orange body with a large, egg-white, long-lived head that ends up as a fully covering film and some lacings. Strong aroma of generic fruits, fermented peach, spices, herbs and alcohol in the back. The flavour is strong, but it has far less overripe tropical fruits and caramel than most DIPAs. The fruity notes are generic and the caramel is in the background. Obvious elements include spices, herbs and alcohol that is too sharp, a bit stinging, bordering on solventy and medicinal with traces of rubber. The taste is moderate sweet and heavy bitter. Full-bodied, smooth and syrupy texture, soft carbonation. A bit disappointing for a DIPA lover like me.
[33 cl bottle, enjoyed 1.5 year before BB date, from Vinmonopolet Online]

jamestulloch (2049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 8, 2015
Bottle from Cornelius. Hazy golden body with a thick off-white head. Lively carbonation. Excellent lacing. Aroma of lemon zest, orange pith and pineapple. Flavour of orange, flower petals, underripe pineapple and an earthy, peppery finish. Good bitterness. Medium body with a frothy mouthfeel. Soft fizz. An outstanding DIPA - very clean and drinkable.

Flaske 330ml fra Vinmonopolet, Tromsdalen. Mørk gyldenbrun. Uklar. Middels høyt skum som daler sakte. God aroma av syrlig frukt. Smaken likedan på et underlag av plommer & fersken. Bra fylde. Tørr bitter avslutning. Litt bunnfall.

Hazy orange with silky white head. Pineapple, lemongrass, grapefruit, white grape and guava aroma. Fruity, slick, sweet and spicy finish. Overall: Interesting hops creates interesting beers. Well done. My bottle was a little old.

PartyFowle (592) - - MAY 21, 2015
Draft. Deep, cloudy tangerine with one inch of dense, fluffy white head. Sweet aroma: candied orange slices, honeysuckle, lime. Very sugary. Same deal in the flavor: sugary, rich and almost barleywine-like. Orange peel, honey, alcohol, wet grass, floral notes and a sugar cookie finish, with big bitterness on the sides of the tongue. A little sweet, but a nice flavor blend. Medium, creamy body. Moderate peppery carbonation. A bit of booze in the nose. Warmth in the throat. Tasty but too sweet and too heavy on sugar-cookie malt. One glass is plenty, forever.

IPAgutten79 (750) - Skui, NORWAY - MAY 16, 2015
Gylden farge med skyhøyt hvitt skum. Søtlig aroma av karamell, tropisk frukt og malt. I den ganske søte smaken er det tropisk frukt, furu, karamell og etterhvert rikelig med bitterhet i ettersmaken. Medium konsistens.
