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.

fiulijn (15440) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 28, 2015
Bottle at Pibar, Lausanne; batch 881, bb 09/2016
Hazy blond color. Wonderful aroma, tropical and citrus fruits, fresh and penetrating, with a delicate malt note. Very good malt choice, it provides a mild canvas for the hopping, with a light cereals presence; the hop has citrus peel oils, mild resins, fruits, and a light grass touch.
Fresh and dangerously drinkable. Excellent.

jinroh (551) - ESTONIA - FEB 26, 2015
500 ml bottle. Pours pale straw with a nice airy foam top. Aroma has tons of citrus, fruits and some fresh cut grass. Taste feels quite light for the ABV, citric and easygoing. Warming and refreshing at the same time. Aftertaste leaves some tinging on my tongue. Good stuff.

En bra dubbel-IPA, grumlig, ofiltrerad, välhumlad med välbalanserad smak. Amager har lyckats igen.

DrowningInBeer (33) - SPAIN - FEB 11, 2015
Absolute monster DIPA. So bitter, full of tropical fruits (mango, peach, papaya, grafefruit) and a slightly malty background which makes the perfect balance. A kicker.
