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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance - The beer was poured into a IPA glass, showing a golden copper color. There was a generous bubbly white head which left lacing on the sides of the glass.

Smell - The aroma was huge, with big notes of grapefruit, peach, and a hint of the malts to come.

Taste - On the initial taste, I detect big grapefruit. Further notes include grass and a very pleasant peachy malt. The aftertaste is more citrusy than bitter, but leaves a mild layer of resin on the back of the tongue. For a 9% ABV, this is a really pleasant drinker.

Mouthfeel - The mouthfeel is pretty spot-on for the style. I wish the taste would linger just a little longer.

Overall - I am not a big IPA guy, but I do like Imperial IPAs. For the style, this one is pretty spectacular.
