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.

onceblind (9629) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 30, 2017
Clear deep golden under a thin rocky white head. Big citrusy pithy hop aroma with a nice resiny touch on a caramelly sweet body. Smooth semisweet flavor that’s caramelly and full and just slightly boozy with a nice floral resiny and orange pithy bitterness. Really nice and full and not too bitter.

Tap. Pours hazy orange, low head, nice lacing. Floral aroma. Citrus, papaya, pineapple, tangerine. Strong bitterness, sweet counter, sticky. Full body, long finish

tap/artefakt. złote, nieklarowne, z gęstą, białą, drobnopęcherzykową pianą. aromat słodkich cytrusów, mandarynek, pomarańczy, słodowy, niemal trochę drożdżowy. w smaku pełne, gładkie, słodkie na starcie, wyraźnie goryczkowe, goryczka chmielowa. mega pijalne.

3.2
BillKismet (4057) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 20, 2016
Bronze body covered with a nice frothy head. Honeyed hop and grain bouquet - floral honeyed notes dance around the glass. The body is a sweet honeyed pool of hoppyness joined by splashes of grapefruit, overripe fruit, and punchy flavors. Pale grainy backbone.

3.8

50cl bottle @El Lúpulo Feroz, Oviedo. 08-03-2015.

In short: fruity bitter ale.
Pours hazy dark gold with nice white head. Short head retention, some lacing. Peachy, pine, caramel nose. Medium body, average carbonation, oily texture. Taste is mild bitter, caramel, fruity. Smooth and enjoyable.

4.1
wlajwl (6803) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - DEC 7, 2016
Aroma is earthy/biscuit malts, citrus and spices. The flavor is citrus, English/biscuit malts, strong fruit, grapefruit/mild tropical fruit and a spicy/bitter/warming alcohol finish.

3.1
kappldav123 (6100) - GERMANY - NOV 28, 2016
Old rating from CBC 2014. Beer in the glass deep golden, small head. Hoppy-fruity aroma. Starts mild malty, more and more fruity like apricot, some peach. Finish less fruity, more dry-malty. A bit moldy. Okay.

3.2
DocJitsu (1974) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - NOV 26, 2016
Pours a slightly murky light golden with a short white head. Malty, alcoholic nose. Soft, thick mouthfeel. Malty flavor. Nice sweetness, but not nearly enough happiness. Might be old. No way to tell. Danes don’t like botn on dates I guess.

romanstep (566) - Warszawa, POLAND - NOV 5, 2016
W nosie intensywnie, słodko, pełno przejrzałych tropików (mango, ananas, papaja), tofii. Barwa ciemnego złota, opalizujące, piana niska, ale drobna. w smaku już mniej słodko, bardzo cytrusowo (mandarynka), marmolada pomarańczowa, dojrzałe tropiki i sporo żywicy. Goryczka wysoka grejpfrutowo-żywiczna. Klasa. Kran w Jabeerwocky.
