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.

UXO (1353) - CANADA - OCT 17, 2015
Appearance: hazy pale amber with one finger of rocky ivory head, good retention and moderate patchy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: pithy citrus, melon, vinous, stone fruit, floral. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderately strong bitter, mild tart. (8/10) Medium slightly oily body, moderate carbonation, lingering slightly boozy bitter finish. (4/5) A DIPA named after a tattoo parlour? Yeah, OK, sure, why not? Decent complexity with a nice hop/malt balance. (Yeah, I see you there, Nelson Sauvin, don’t think I didn’t.) And it’s a sneaky bugger - the 9% ABV doesn’t really make its presence know until you’re well through the bottle and the room gets a little wobbly. I like this. (16/20)

DuffMan (9025) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 13, 2015
Bottle. Very hazy golden hue, massive white head that retains well. Sweet peachy hops, strong woody undertones, extremely bitter finish. Boozy and sweet.

michael_bb (53) - Barcelona, SPAIN - OCT 6, 2015
From bottle. Pours hazy amber orange with thick head. Floral aroma and delicious sweet, fruity taste (mandarin and vanilla?). Quite strong alcohol finish though with a bitter aftertaste. The only con I can find is, for me, the initial sweetness doesn’t blend together too well with the strength and bitterness of the finish. Excellent beer anyway

dfearnley (1613) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 5, 2015
Bottle to IPA glass Another breakthrough at work, another beer. This could be good...or bad. Grapefruit, orange, light caramel, tropical fruits in the background. If you give it some time, a light pepperiness comes through. Clear amber with a huge 3cm frothy, off white head which had decent retention due to the very active carbonation. Taste is grapefruit and apple with an interesting late funkiness kind of like tropical fruit, but mixed with that overwhelming bitterness.

Jimbo2 (144) - DENMARK - SEP 30, 2015
Plenty of hops, but maybe with more depth than most and a more profound bitterness than most dipa’s. Fairly complex, really...
