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.

On tap. Hazy golden with thick white head. Somewhat floral and grassy on the nose but also some vague hints of something a bit off which I just can’t put my finger on. Grassy hoppiness in taste. Medium bitter for a DIPA with a medium body, soft carbonation and an ok lingering bitter finish.

First Mikkeller beer I didn’t absolutely love. Too much alcohol hid the great complexity of this beer. There’s everything in it, but I couldn’t appreciate it, the alcohol spoiled it IMHO.

Colore giallo opalescente, schiuma abbondante pannosa, al naso sentori di frutta esotica e a pasta gialla, in bocca un leggero amaro, fresco, che subito viene coperto da un sapore dolce

erickok (4302) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - JUL 22, 2015
Very good looking, stable head. Delicious inviting aroma with lots of good yet a great malt body as well. Very dry fermentation, giving even more dry hopped aroma to pay with. American style, modern, citrus, flowery. Super taste, can’t imagine wanting much more. Strong bitterness yet balanced with malts to make a dangerously drinkable beer. So flavourful! Really delicious. (Bottle from Saveur Bière)

C’est une tuerie de fruits exotiques ! ou plutôt de grosses groseilles très mûres du jardin ... Pas si amer, juste très fruité, limite bonbon acidulé mais sans vulgarité ... Quelque chose de fleuri et printanier aussi .... Et doux aussi.Vraiment une dégustation délicieuse qui m’éloigne avec joie du "encore une bière de plus" un peu las qui peut parfois m’étreindre !

Marduk (3986) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 16, 2015
Tap @Alus Celle, Riga. Hazy amber color. Medium size, white head, stays. Sweet, alcohol, yeasty and malty aroma. Yeasty, grainy, boozy, sweet taste. Boozy grainy aftertaste. It’s something and by that I mean it’s not good. It’s just sweet boozy mess.

RichardW (1739) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2015
Bottle from Beer Central, Sheffield. The Sorachi Ace in the aroma, despite the presence of other big hops. Sweet and alcoholic, almost a petrol-like aroma at times. Oily & resinous on the tongue, plenty of warmth, a sweetness that tastes reasonably malty, with a caramel hint, with bready yeast around the sides of the mouth & almost a little sourness. Complex, intriguing and full flavoured.

Mr_Pink_152 (1916) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2015
Bottle from Colonna and hunter, bath. Hazy orange colour with a thick white head. Aroma has citrus and tropical fruit. Taste starts light sweet and progresses to a mid bitter finish.

Solid hoppy Double IPA, rather sweet than dry in taste with lots hoppy notes in taste and aroma. Full bodied with strong bitterness and slightly alcoholic finish.

kevinator (1380) - The Colony, Texas, USA - JUL 5, 2015
Aroma and flavor of pale malt and spicy hops. The Sorachi hops seemed to stand out. Pretty color and a full enveloping palate. Bold but well-blended.
