COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our collaboration with Gigantic Brewery. Crescendo of Doom is a hopped up lager. This is no big hop bomb but just a nice drinking beer that comes in at 6.3% ABV. British hops were used in the kettle and then Crescendo of Doom was dry hopped with German hops.

Note: This is the return brew of the Collaboration. The only difference on the label is at the bottom, where it says, "A Tactical Lager brewed in Munster, Indiana." Please be aware there is another version under Gigantic brewed in Portland, Oregon.

Bomber from Crown Liquors #3 Indianapolis, 8/12/16. The first beer in the new apartment! Hazy yellow, large pillowy white head, good retention. Aroma of citrus, crisp doughy malts and a hint of menthol. The taste is pineapple, orange, pale malt. Medium bodied, crisp, juicy, well balanced. Crescendo of doom... good way to describe a law school semester!

[ bottle ][ 1.5oz ][ @Tasting ][ $? ][ Schnapps snifter ][ 03.25.16 ]

translucent gold, thin white large bubbled ring. Paint-esque nose, grassy, little berry. Sticky front is sweet, lightly toasted, more caramel and corn across mid palate, finishes sweet and fizzy. Right amount of bitterness-effervescence but too sweet and thick/sticky.

Large shared bottle.
Despite the name, this is not a real strong lager. Still, it resembles an American Pale Ale rather than a typical American lager. Lively carbonation with a medium body.
