Pours golden with a full white head. The aroma is grapefruit and orange. The taste has a sweet bitterness, mostly grapefruit with some orange, and an aftertaste of grapefruit. Pretty tasty, as you might expect from the good folks at New Glarus Brewing Company jbruner (4804) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 27, 2017
Pours a hazy golden yellow on tap with fluffy white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of nice old school hop notes over nice malty base. Taste follows, booze well hidden and impressively drinkable. Good stuff.

Pours hazy orange amber with low white head. Aroma of citrus, tangerine, tropical fruit, lime. Taste is big pine bitter up front followed by a mellow fruit sweetness that gets lost in all that hoppiness... light and smooth body with average carbonation.

Ar: Marmalade, orange pith, melon, and peach--all moderate intensity. Ap: Deep gold and clear; medium white head with moderate retention, leaving a ring of fine bubbles and a very thin, non-uniform cap of bubbles. T: Evergreen and pine up front with a low sweetness; orange pith, grapefruit rind, and mixed berries; toasty malt with some moderate light caramel notes; bitterness is high but very smooth; finish is lingering lemon, pine, and mint. P: Medium body with high carbonation; finish is dry. O: Tasty 2XIPA; a good cross-section of American hop flavors with a fairly pronounced intensity; bitterness is very firm and clean, and there is a nice malt backbone, with toast and light caramels, to provide an interesting counterpoint to the hops. bubblehouse (1541) - louisville, Kentucky, USA - DEC 8, 2016
Really smooth and easy to drink. I liked it quite a bit. Had a nice piney taste. MetalNHopHead (2016) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - NOV 11, 2016
I got a chance to hear about Abe, the eagle who flew with the 8th Infantry, while touring the Madison capitol building. That poor guy didn’t have much luck in his later years. A fire in the capitol put an end to his days. He was trapped in his cage and inhaled too much smoke. Years later, his taxidermied body was destroyed in a later capitol fire. All of this after surviving battles and bounties placed on his head by Southerners. Anyway, Scream has a tasty Imperial IPA named after him, so I’d say he has better fortune. This brew pours orange. Aroma reveals a careful balance between dank hops and caramel malt. Same for the flavor. Tropical fruit notes counterbalanced by toffee-like malt. There’s bitterness but it tastes like less than the 85 IBU’s. It’s a thick brew that totally buries its ABV. New Glarus makes Imperial IPA as well as they make anything else it seems.
