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.

ciaranc (1102) - Dublin, - FEB 10, 2013
Brightcloudy orange gold with a big creamy white head. Lovely lacing in the glass. Citrus orange aroma, bready malt and some lush pungent hops. Huge flavour, hops dominate, more orange, sharp orange zest with a lush malty backbone. Mouthfeel is robust and slick, oily hops line the palette. Carbonation is tight but not flat. Finish lasts for a long time. Insanely hoppy and very enjoyable.

jc1762 (252) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 29, 2015
Taster showing cloudy amber and a finger of clean white foam. The nose shows mango and sweet malts. The palate is medium bodied and moderately carbonated. Flavors of apple and lightly sweet malts. Slight notes of oak and vanilla. Slight sharp IPA bitterness.

Foffern (1439) - Bodø, NORWAY - AUG 14, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours a murky, dull orange color with a big, beige head. Compact aroma with almonds, alcohol, toffee, grass and leather. Some tropical fruits in the background. The flavor is similar with a little more tropical fruits coming through. There’s also a great malty part in the middle before a heavy and grassy bitterness lingers in the end. Is full-bodied with a slick and soft mouth feel, and a heavy bitterness. There so much stuff in this DIPA but all feels like a big mess and it’s hard separate the different flavors. A very hoppy ale and feels a bit unbalanced.

Sjohnh (477) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2015
I love DIPAs when they work like this. Like the film "From Dusk Till Dawn". The first half is interesting, slow building with a hint of menace - the nose and early taste are bursting with fruit, and unlike some in the style the fruit stays light and citrus rather than being pulled into a more cloying sweetness by the alcohol. And then halfway through - all hell breaks loose. Complete mayhem - bitter, bitter, bitter. Medium body, good mouthfeel, looks like a DIPA should with quality lacing. Ace.

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 (4322) - 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 !
