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.

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.

wvhoran (202) - Tasmania, - AUG 12, 2014
Bottle. Clear amber-orange with a beautiful creamy white head. Superb aroma of tropical fruits, like pineapple, passionfruit, mango. Some grapefruit and pine notes also. A touch of malt. Flavour is sweet sticky hops, with the aforementioned fruits but more of a sweet citrus base, lots of orange. A bit of an alcohol burn unfortunately but not much of an offense in a really good DIPA.

Tsekouratos (197) - Nea Filadelfeia, Athens, GREECE - AUG 12, 2014
500 ml bottle thanks to humlelala. Pours a clear golden color with a nice frothy white head. Aromas of lemon, orange, only slight sweetness. Taste was excellent. Citrus, lemon, orange, grapefruit, hints of pine, some caramel to back up this great hoppiness. Long aftertaste, slightly sweet. Sticky mouthfeel. Medium body with low to medium carbonation. Excellent.
