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.

UPDATED: JUN 28, 2014 Barwa: złocista, lekko zamglona. Piana biała, dość obfita, drobno pęcherzykowa, utrzymująca się i ładnie oblepiająca szkło. Wysycenie średnie. Aromat: zdecydowanie chmielowy jednak głównie owocowy (cytrusy, winogrona, agrest), nieco słodowy (herbatnikowy) z lekką nutą alkoholową. Akcenty owocowe zdecydowanie dominują jednak nad alkoholem. Smak: słodowy, pełny, ale umiarkowanie słodki. Chmielowa kontra niezbyt wielka, ale wyraźna, goryczka w okolicach średniej. Do tego alkoholowa, rozgrzewająca końcówka. Tym razem double IPA z Mikkelera. Piwo poprawne, ale nic ponadto. Barwa nieco zbyt jasna (jak dla mnie), ale piana bardzo ładna i trwała. Aromat wyraźnie chmielowy, jednak Nelson i Sorachi zdają się dominować, co w tym przypadku nie do końca się nie sprawdza (sam Nelson był moim zdaniem świetny). W smaku nadmierna alkoholowość w połączeniu z kontrowersyjnym zestawem chmieli i ich owocowymi atrybutami - średnio do mnie przemawia. Z drugiej strony, żeby wszystkie średnie piwa tak smakowały...

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.

Draft. Juicy taste, juicy aroma. Lots of fruit, lots of hops. Some herbal hints. Really well-balanced.

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.

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.

Pours cloudy yellow. Aroma is hoppy, fruity, intense. Taste is hoppy, balanced, fruity.

Fantastic IIPA. Lots of hoppy experience, with a sweet well balanced body. Don´t fear the high ABV.
