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.

BrettGT (124) - Aalborg, DENMARK - APR 3, 2016
Aroma of nectarine, orange, peach, grapefruit. Pours hazy golden, two finger frothy white head Taste is medium bitter and lightl to medium sweet. Medium body, sticky, average carbonation and quickly fading little dry finish. More grapefruity on the tongue than on the aroma. You sense the ABV a little but pretty nice overall.

AssKicker (182) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - APR 1, 2016
Une couleur cuivrée, une mousse onctueuse à souhait, une odeur légèrement caramélisée... mmm ça commence bien. Soyeuse en bouche, les houblons sont présents en force, mais tout en douceur avec des notes d’agrumes et de caramel. A noter que l’on ne sent absolument pas les 9% d’alcool. Vraiment très chouette.

Great looking beer with long lasting head. Lot of hops after the citrus fruits, medium body in the mouth, with (for me) quite a strong sense of a high ABV

Bottle. Blonde. Unripe peach and herbal hops in the aroma. Herbal grassy hopbitter flavor with citrus, unripe peach and mango. Malty, but not too sweet and slightly alcoholic. Lovely!

Wow that’s a lot of my favourite hops all in one imperial brew. Quite sweet. Peach, pineapple, grape and some citrus. Bitterness kicks in a bit later but it’s fairly subtle. Medium thickness and fairly malty. Alcohol goes down unnoticed.

lello4ever (585) - ITALY - FEB 24, 2016
Biondo carico, media limpida, schiuma molto sottile. Al naso frutta esotica, agrumi, sentori alcolici. Molto alcol anche al palato, buon equilibrio di malto e luppolo. Convincente.

alkolas510 (1168) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 12, 2016
Bärnstensfärgad med stort vit skum som stannar länge. Ganska funkig/jästig doft och smak. Humlig men även lite maltig och ganska söt. Nelson humlen lyser igenom!
