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.

Bottle to tulip glass

A- pours a hazy bright orange color with a small creamy white head that retains long after the pour, eventually leaving some nice lacing behind

S- big dose of citrusy hops up front on the nose, with an emphasis on grapefruit. Also picking up some tropical notes of passionfruit & pineapple. Fresh cut grass and mint leaves, closing with clean, slightly sweet malt, nice showcase of hops

T- fresh citrus zest and grapefruit juice flavor up front mixes with muddled mint leaves, passionfruit and fresh cut grass. Leafy green notes continue the hop showcase, eventually finishing with a very subtle malty sweetness

M- medium body with moderate carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel, eventually finishing slightly creamy

O- such a clean and flavorful hop showcase with an emphasis on citrus, mint and grassy notes. Malty background is subtle, but enough to allow the hops to be showcase, very well made DIPA

Pours clear amber with an almost one finger white head, which fades quickly to a small collar of foam and leaves a nice lace. The aroma has grapefruit, pineapple, pine, grass, and sweet malt.

Has a nice combination of sweetness and bitterness with grapefruit, pineapple, pine, sweet malt, melon, and orange.

Medium bodied with average carbonation. Has a citrus and pineapple aftertaste. I hope New Glarus decides to brew this again. It's a winner.
