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.

Grandissima! Buonissima double IPA aranciata con schiuma pannosa e persistente. Al naso luppolo resinoso e caramello. In bocca gradebolissima amarezza bilanciata bene con il grado alcolico e la caramellosità. Sapori di resina, frutta tropicale, fiori e miele. Finale lungo ed equilibrato. Un capolaboro!!!! Bevuta a Fermo (Italia) nel Vaffalluppolo

Pierwsza 5! Najwspanialszy aromat w piwie z jakim się spotkałem, owoce tropikalne i cytrusy tak silne, że tworzyły słodką, obezwładniającą multiwitaminę. Z głównych akcentów dominowało mango. W smaku cudowny balans, ciasteczkowa słodowość i odzwierciedlenie zapachu w smaku, owoce, owoce i jeszcze raz amerykańskie chmiele. Goryczka potężna, przebijająca się, uderzająca i natychmiast zanikająca. Mimo 9% pije się to jakby było sokiem. GENIALNE!

Diabobale (309) - Vallata, SUD ITALIA, ITALY - NOV 8, 2014
La migliore double IPA di sempre. Eccezionale!! Un mix di 5-6 luppoli molto armonioso ed equilibrato. Schiuma perfetta, aroma floreale, fruttato e tropicale con leggeri sentori erbacei. Ottima corposità e dolcezza data dai malti. Un tripudio di sapori e odori che permangono in bocca, in gola e nei ricordi.

corkyrory66 (930) - BELGIUM - APR 23, 2015
Une impériale/double ipa de 9 % abv, brassée chez de Proef en Belgique. 2 malts et 5 houblons dans la composition. Couleur orangé abricoté très joli, avec un léger voile. Bulles sur les parois partout. Mousse blanc/beige épaisse, crémeuse au centre, qui nappe à l’aise. Arômes d’agrumes, mangue, bois de santal, malt clair, pâte d’amandes. Sublime. 1ère bouche douce, soyeuse, à la superbe entame malt/houblon/fruits avec une légère pointe d’épices. Arrière-bouche fraîche, mais aux fruits complexes, dont des fruits de la passion. 2ème au splendide complexe fruit/malt/houblon , avec du bois blanc. Arrière-bouche avec une pointe de muguet, grenade, zeste de citron et d’orange. 3ème qui est une merveille pure, complexe, dense, précise, nette, forte. Arrière-bouche fleurie, un peu muscadée. Un rêve. Longueur qui rime avec finesse, tendresse, saveur, douceur, grâce. Jambes bien marquées. Alcool qui fait un magnifique travail sur les saveurs, avec un très haut niveau. Levure qui est un régal. Finale avec densité, équilibre, et encore de nouvelles nuances ... CONCLUSION : une fantastique dipa qui met le genre sur orbite, avec en vue de rejoindre le croissant de lune. Pas de problème, elle y arrive cette nuit ...

It doesn’t get any better than that. An absolute monster Double IPA. Extremely hoppy, fruity, juicy and resiny. High bitterness on the palate. Best IIPA I’ve had so far.

MikaLukanainen (173) - POLAND - NOV 27, 2014
Hazy orange coloured beer is surmounted by a small and disappointingly quickly fading head. Aroma of sweet tropical fruits that strangely boils down to a very ripe, sweet and delectable tangerine with some mango accents behind. The intensity of the aroma is stupendous, but it’s just a mere overture to the main part. The taste follows with yet another blow of intense tangerine, mango, all nicely spread on a velvet facture that lingers on the palate for a while before the bitternes charges to tame the sweetness a bit. And the rest... is silence. So much character, so much taste and still easy drinking with no alcohol whatsoever. I simply can’t rate it any point less that it gets.

A magnificent dipa from mikkeller. Citrus/pine aroma with light carbonation and smooth viscous mouthfeel. Flavour of powerful pine, citrus and lychee hops. Lingering bitterness at the end that make this a truly satisfying brew.

raulsenko (3) - SPAIN - APR 3, 2014 does not count
Es una cerveza maravillosa, su aromas es penetrante y el sabor lleno de matices, pero muy potente. Me ha sorprendido gratamente. Eso si el precio se sube un poco.

huineman (423) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 8, 2015
Pours pale amber with greenish tinges. Thick, frothy ivory head. Intense aromas of passion fruit. Also orange zest, grapefruit, pomelo, mango... Powerful, savoury, full-bodied. Long bitter finish. Very interesting.
