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.

330ml bottle. Pours an unclear orange-gold with lots of sediment floating around and a large, frothy, long lasting, off-white head that laces nicely. Sweet aroma of caramel malt, peach, orange, tangerine, apricot, mango and pine. Sweet flavour of caramel malt, white wine, tropical fruit, peach, orange peel, yeast and pine with a dry, mildly bitter, hoppy finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Tasty, the high ABV is well hidden.

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2017 40cl from draft at Mikkeller Bar. Excessively boozy beer, with clear alcoholic aroma that covers the fruity and sour notes of the IPA. Slightly disappointing

Pours hazy orange with a puffy white head.
Aroma is not very strong but, rather delicate and hoppy where citrus is the main feature.
Taste is perfectly balanced: malty sweet and hoppy bitterness, just some subtle alcoholi notes in the finish. I sensed some dried figues too in the last sips.
Medium carbonation, medium body, totally drinkable.
Not the craziest Mikkeller, very nice.

hohops (1115) - Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 19, 2017
Can. Appearance is murky/cloudy golden, a one-finger foamy white head. Aroma- grapefruit, orange, pithy fruit, mango, pineapple, sweet malt, hints of caramel. Very fruity. Taste- thick, orangey fruit juice, sweet pineapple, undercurrent of rough malt, grapefruit, sticky fruitcake, lots of fruity sweetness, then bitter hop resin. Juicy and sticky mouthfeel. Very nice.

Aroma:
Medium aroma of malts, caramel, wood, vanilla, fruit, hops and citrus.

Appearance: 4
Turbid/opaque golden/amber beer with a slight off-white head.

Taste/Palate: 8/4
Starts medium/heavy sweet with malts, caramel, wood, vanilla and fruit; ends slightly bitter and dry with hops and citrus.

Overall: 17
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. There is some wood and vanilla shining through and I really have no idea why. Maybe the guys did not clean their tap thoroughly enough? Great fruit flavours and a decent bitter finish thanks to the hops. Great appearance and palate as well, but the aroma could have been stronger.

BenL8 (274) - SWITZERLAND - SEP 15, 2017
330ml bottle at home. Pours a hazy orange amber with some head. Very intriguing and spicy aroma. Lots of tropical fruit, orange, lemon, booze, resin, hops. Nice balance of intense tropical and citrus fruit with herbal and spicy hoppiness. Taste is very bitter, medium sweet, caramel and with a pronounced malt base. Fruity, though not as pronounced as in aroma. Finishes herbal and earthy, resiny side of the hops shows off here. Finishes a tad sugary and boozy too. Nice double IPA, flavour could be a tad more fruity or juicy for my liking but could be due to it being a tad old.
