COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Oh jävla vad fint fruktigt rent den doftar. Smakar sjukt balanserat likt bästa amerikanska Dipa. Inte dåligt fruktig utan för mycket sötma Åhh bara 8% alkohol. Riktigt riktigt fräsch Dipa av den mer lättdruckna sorten . LÄR SVENSKA BRYGGARE Å KÖP. KÖP .

Bottled from Systembolaget Deep golden with a white head. Very hoppy aroma with tropical fruits and pine needles. Light to medium body and a medium to high bitterness. More tropical fruits in the flavour; mango, papaya, pine-apple. Crisp mouthfeel.

Perfekt balans. Inget sticker ut. Förvånansvärt lättdrucken. En av de bättre dubbel iporna jag provat!

En dipa med bra tryck, utan för den skull tippa över till det odrickbara teritoriet. Rekommenderas.

Barw bardzo ładna, złota, klarowne na pierwszy rzut oka, ale przy dokładniejszej inspekcji widać niewielki drobinki. Pięknie pracuje. Piana obfita, pozostawiająca bardzo ładny lacing. Aromat tropikalnych owoców, całe tropiki zawarte w jednej butelce (nawet nie będę po kolei wymieniał bo tyle tego jest), trochę karmelu, jakby trawy i na końcu odrobineneczka alkoholu. Piwo jest słodkie, ale przez chwilkę, później jest gorzkie, a następnie owocowe z dodatkiem karmelu, iglaste nutki są również. Tyle tego jest że masakra. Ciałko jest, wysycenie średnie w stronę wysokiego, iglasto grejpfrutowa goryczka w ilości zadowalającej, czyli powyżej średniej.

Bärnstensfärgad med mellanstort vit skum. Doftar och smakar mycket tropisk frukt men bra balans med malten och beskan. Hög hinkability trots 8% Mycket bra!!

A really tasty IPA which represents very well what an IPA should be, wonderful intense clear flavors of tropical fruits and it has the standard bitterness there but it never overpowers which many IPAs do but instead there is a great balance between the sweet fruits and bitterness. One of the best beers ive had from Amager thus far
