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.

Garrold (2587) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2015
Tap. Bundobust, Leeds. Cloudy, dark gold. Thin, sticky, lasting, white head. Big, fusty mandarin citrus. Lots of pine resin. Fairly brash. Verges on minty and herbal. Taste is heavy bitter. Some sweetness. Full, chewy palate. A bit boozy. Finishes long, chewy, oily bitter. Loads of oomph, not much finesse. Still liked it a lot, though.

2/11/15 - Monk’s Pub (Chicago) Draft -Nice mixture of fruity hops and a taste of caramel. Tasted somewhat bitter, yet smooth and enjoyable to drink. Strong flavor and texture is a reason I liked this offering. Well done Mikkeller and hope to find additional offerings from this brewer down the road.

Bright cloudy orange pour. 22oz bottle from Blackwells at Lakehouse. Peach citrus fruity aroma. This taste is insane. Vanilla, peach, pear, cream, and of course hoppy. Delicious as hell. Like a cream pie IPA. Wow
