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.

glennmastrange (2423) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - APR 17, 2015
Bottle. Moderate roasted and caramel for the malt, heavy spruce grapefruit and orange for the hops, light soap for the yeast, with notes of pineapple and pepper. Head is average to large, frothy, off-white with some spots of lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is murky, medium amber/orange. Flavor starts lightly to moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, oily with a lively carbonation. Besides the citrusy hops in this DIPA I like how the sweetness hangs on from start to finish.
