Editor’s Note: This version was brewed at Amager Bryghus and had its first appearance at Mikkeller’s Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2014.
NOT to be confused with the earlier version brewed at Hill Farmstead under the Grassroots label.

Danish: Shaun Hill – magiker, excentriker, troldmand og en af den moderne ølverdens helt store personligheder. I enhver henseende så langt fra typisk Tårnby drengerøvsmentalitet, som man kan forestille sig. Men på trods af dette – eller måske netop på grund af dette – blev Shaun en god ven af Amager Bryghus, hvor flere øl kom til verden som resultatet af et frugtbart samarbejde, mens Shaun selv arbejdede som brygger på Nørrebro Bryghus. Da vi i juni 2013 besøgte New England var det derfor kun naturligt, at vi slog forbi Shauns gårdbryggeri Hill Farmstead – absolut in the middle of nowhere. Vi fik skideballer af Shaun, da vi kom til at tømme et par af hans fade med god Saison, men det var alt sammen glemt, da vi dagen efter bryggede “Shadow Pictures Of A Journey” – en ren og næsten fornærmende letdrikkelig Double IPA fyldt med de sprødeste aromahumler. “Shadow Pictures – Skyggebilleder” er vores fortolkning af samme øl, som opstod den dag hos Shaun i Vermont.

yngwie (14935) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 22, 2015
Bottle. It’s a lightly hazy one, dark golden-orange in color and with a dense, light beige head on top. Some lacings. Lots of canned tropical fruits in the aroma, with malty sugars and some alcohol in the back. Pine cone notes. Resins, bitterness, tropical fruits and some oranges in the flavor. Biscuits. It’s full-bodied, warming and quite sweet on the palate. Pleasant carbonation level. Lasting sweet, fruity and warming finish. Bet this one was better when all fresh, but I also think it will be nice if cellared longer. 150522

Great dipa from amarger. A lot of tropical fruits on the aroma, with a hint of citrussy peel, and white flowers. The taste is load of apricot,pineapple, a little bit of sweet bready malt, papaya. Bitter and dry finish, so smooth with a wonderful connection of all the flavours. Light to mefium body, this baby rocks

AlainG (1446) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 5, 2015
Blonde dorée à la mousse immaculée. On sent le houblon, les conifères et un sublime punch aux fruits. Fruité par les agrumes. Un goût de marmelade, d’écorce d’orange, alors qu’une amertume tranchante et un alcool bien présent qui use de son influence pour former la palette de saveurs. Un sucre résiduel prend le dessus sur le malt. (Batch 881-MA 09-2016) (1409-160415)

Johnsense (953) - - MAY 3, 2015
Golden pour, good sized head. Tropical fruit salad aroma and taste, pineapple, mango, grapefruit, floral hops. Sweet malt backbone. Medium body. The amager version stands alongside the grassroots version.

BlazerT (184) - POLAND - MAY 3, 2015
Bottle. Burnt orange, medium hazy with medium, white medium densed head. Poor head retention, medicore lacing. Aroma of tropical fruits (mango, pineapple), honey, citrus (grapefruit). Medium bitter with nice hoppy profile - mostly fruity (grapefruit, tropical fruits) with light floral notes. Resionous, piney finish. The malty backbone is sweet, honey, but not overbalance the hoppy profile. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation, finish is semi-dry and bitter, quite long. In overall easy going DIPA with enough malty sweetness in contrary to hoppy character. Yet another good DIPA from Amager.
