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.

Note: New version of IIPA from the Thumbprint series. OG has been upped to 20.9 degrees plato.

12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours amber with an off-white head. Aroma of floral and lightly citrusy and piney hops, some pale and caramel malts, and some dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. A decent beer.

Bottle. The pour is a vibrant golden orange. The aroma is piney hops and refreshing. The taste is big on hops and not overly bitter, people are finely figuring it out. Solid iipa that holds up to comp. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

delnoche (472) - Alamogordo, New Mexico, USA - MAY 23, 2015
12fl oz bottle poured into a New Glarus pint glass. Sparkling golden orange with plenty of fizzy white head. It smells like Skittles. Skittles and pine needles. It begins to taste like Skittles and then slaps your face and reminds you that this is beer you’re drinking, not candy! The moderately intense hops blast brings the pine that you smelled earlier to your taste buds. The lasting finish is all deliciously bitter hops. The palate is thick and sticky, lending credibility to the early illusion of candy. This fantastic brew is a wonderful concoction of the sweet and bitter. I love this one.

Mindwarp (123) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 22, 2015
Pours a hazy golden with a thick white head with lots of lacing. Nice citrus aroma. Nice citrusy taste not hoppy or bitter. Getting a little bit more hoppy as it warms. Really good DIPA easy to drink for 9% ABV. Might be a good go to DIPA.

Nuffield (3772) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - MAY 18, 2015
Generous and friendly aroma with plenty of citrus, pine and a hint of a familiar plastic (in a good way, like the memory of opening a new Star Wars action figure). The sweetness of the aroma finds a complement in the sticky body, but the finish and the flavor profile, while fine, didn’t hum. There was nothing not ton like but nothing, either to really love. Bottle.

ronaldtheriot (1475) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - MAY 7, 2015
New Glarus Scream has a medium, white, spongy head, a semi-clear, gold-orange appearance, and some fine, powdery sediment. Lacing is not heavy. The aroma is of strong, piney hop resin, riding alongside white bread, and the flavor is the same with sugar and a high, yet, not harsh, bitterness level. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy, and New Glarus Scream finishes a touch boozy and pretty well drinkable. RJT

portableparty (2019) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - APR 25, 2015
12 oz. bottle. Pours an orange amber color with a white tight fluffy head that slowly fades. Aroma is bright juicy citrus some spruce. Taste is bitter juicy fruit resinous hops some spruce and a soft malt balance which is a little biscuity. Palate is juicy and sticky. Great!

Cjmccahill (34) - Indiana, USA - APR 4, 2015
Bottle to snifter. Cloudy golden pour with fluffy white head. Citrus fruity and piney nose. Full body, good feel, crisp, clean, citrus, resiny. Nothing not to like. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle pours a yellow amber color with a bit of head. Medium hop bitterness. Overall easy going. The flavor doesn't linger long though.
