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.

ogniskowicz (400) - POLAND - MAY 6, 2015
Aromat: słodkie owoce, karmel, odrobina żywicy i alkoholu Wygląd: piękny mętny jasny bursztyn, fantastyczna piana Smak: początkowo atakuje winogronową słodyczą, później lekkim kokosem by skończyć grejpfrutowo-sosnową goryczką. Lekko czuć przyjemne alkoholowe grzanie. Świetna IIPA.

Really nice creamy bitter dry complex beer. Slightly vinous aroma. Huge tiny bubbles head that sticks to the glass. Hoppy and great. Not too refreshing but just very good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Intense hob aroma with moderate bitterness. Hides its 9% ABV surprisingly well

Very lively hazy golden beer which took a while for the head to settle. Aroma is tart mango. Flavour is tropical but somewhat sweeter, though there is a hoppy bitterness which undercuts all that too. And it ends up with a dry, tropical fruit flavour which lingers too. Really good.

mile (3404) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 29, 2015
Bottle. Golden, cloudy, average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate to full, malty and sweetish aroma, light - some caramel and tropical fruitiness, some grapefruit – piney hoppyness, light alcohol. Body is medium to full, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, faint caramel and tropical fruitiness, grapefruit – some piney hoppyness, light alcohol. Finish is average, malty and dryish, faint fruitiness with lots of piney - some grapefruit hoppyness, light - some alcohol. Really well hopped dryish IIPA - not too sweet. Bit too much alcohol in the finish considering the body. Could also use bit more fruitiness.

corkyrory66 (861) - BELGIUM - APR 23, 2015
Une impériale/double ipa de 9 % abv, brassée chez de Proef en Belgique. 2 malts et 5 houblons dans la composition. Couleur orangé abricoté très joli, avec un léger voile. Bulles sur les parois partout. Mousse blanc/beige épaisse, crémeuse au centre, qui nappe à l’aise. Arômes d’agrumes, mangue, bois de santal, malt clair, pâte d’amandes. Sublime. 1ère bouche douce, soyeuse, à la superbe entame malt/houblon/fruits avec une légère pointe d’épices. Arrière-bouche fraîche, mais aux fruits complexes, dont des fruits de la passion. 2ème au splendide complexe fruit/malt/houblon , avec du bois blanc. Arrière-bouche avec une pointe de muguet, grenade, zeste de citron et d’orange. 3ème qui est une merveille pure, complexe, dense, précise, nette, forte. Arrière-bouche fleurie, un peu muscadée. Un rêve. Longueur qui rime avec finesse, tendresse, saveur, douceur, grâce. Jambes bien marquées. Alcool qui fait un magnifique travail sur les saveurs, avec un très haut niveau. Levure qui est un régal. Finale avec densité, équilibre, et encore de nouvelles nuances ... CONCLUSION : une fantastique dipa qui met le genre sur orbite, avec en vue de rejoindre le croissant de lune. Pas de problème, elle y arrive cette nuit ...

Great beer that taste fantastic. I love the mixture of fruity taste and the bitterness that it gives.

mcberko (9220) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 21, 2015
On tap at Taps Trondheim, pours a cloudy golden orange with a small white head. Nose is robust, with notes of oranges, resinous hops, caramel malt and some booze. Flavour follows through similarly, with robust resinous hops, caramel, and booze. Very malty for a IIPA. Not exactly my thing but it’s very well-brewed. Great stuff.

zach8270 (3832) - Henrietta, New York, USA - APR 20, 2015
(bottle - 750 ml) Cloudy orange with a puffy head. Herbal and hoppy bitter aroma with some caramel at the back. Very different and unusual flavor. Very herbal with a lot of bitterness and a light citrus hint at the finish.

Capped 750 shared by Marcus. Pours hazy apricot with a creamy off-white head. Aroma suggests herb/cactus. Med + body. Flavor is strange herb/cactus/? - and it’s fairly dry. Citrus peeks out. Gets light stone fruit with a bit of time. Quite different. Quite good.
