Notes/Commercial Description:
Scream pierces reality, effortlessly slicing our sky, He flies over the Brewery just as Abe circled over Wisconsin’s 8th Infantry during the Civil War. He calls us to something bigger. Scream boasts an inspired 85 IBUs that reverberate cleanly though this IIPA. New Glarus Brewery grown estate hops join other Wisconsin grown hops to dominate this brew from Kettle Boil to Dry Hopping. You hold a deceptively seductive Original Gravity of 20.9 degrees Plato following the always 100% naturally bottle conditioned fermentation. Luscious Wisconsin grown and malted barley along with English Maris Otter malt is the bold heart of this lustful sensory enchantment. Surrender is inevitable so enjoy today.

From 07/21/14 notes. Big thanks to BeerLawyer85 for sharing this one; thanks Ross. 12 oz. bottle into a tulip.

a - Pours a somewhat murky hazy golden yellow color with one inch of white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of citrus hops, oranges, fruity malts, grapefruit, resin, pine hops, grapefruit, floral hops, and earthy notes. Great nose, lots of fresh grapefruit.

t - Tastes same as nose, lightly bitter. Tons of grapefruit, citrus hops, lemon zest, oranges, wheat, fruity malts, pine, and resin.

m - Medium body and low carbonation. veyr light bitter bite but not too bad at all.

o - Overall a really good DIPA from NG; one of their better non-fruit or sour beers. Awesome citrus and only a light bitter bite. Highly recommended.
