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.

aleigator (231) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - SEP 12, 2014
Dense, medium head with a clear, glowing orange color. Aromas show a broad range of hop varieties, fresh cut grass, pine, lemon peel, papaya, kiwi and a golden hint of honey. Buttery toffee and white-bread malts lay the groundwork to withstand the massive hoppiness of this brew. Unripe citrus becomes visible after some swiveling, adding the last piece to a very impressive nose. Begins very mellow and soft, only revealing malts up front, which a gentle infusion of caramel and rich toffee. Grassy citrus notes rush in, adding a crisp hop bitterness, accompanied by ripe, sunny orange and a touch of mango for the sweetness. Pine and herbal hints add a gentle complexity to this smooth double IPA, which is almost full-bodied. Remains on the sweeter side, altough it reveals a very appealing hop intricacy. Lingering, bittersweet, creamy and fruity finish.

Draught @ Van Moll Brewpub. Lightly hazy golden color, medium sized white head. Aroma is malts, hops, resin and pine. Taste malts, hops, again resinous and piney. Sticky sweet texture, medium body, medium carbonation. As a double IPA should be, though not one of the best.
