COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Gunslinger Double India Pale Ale starts with a rich malt base to which we add hops, hops and more hops. This skillful blend of malt sweetness and aggressive hoppiness will rule your senses! After the addition of Columbus, simcoe, centennial and citra hops at various points of the brewing process, we reach the final IBU count of 93.

Bottle. Nose is very strong citrus rind with some caramel and a little dank wood (pine), mild spice and floral caress. Dull, dusky orange body with a dense, rocky beige head. Taste again very hoppy, medium bitterness with lots of bitter orange peel and sweet orange peel, perfumed essence of orange with some tangerine, apricot, pine, spice, lavender; oily full body is very crisp without being too aggressive, juicy, sweet to overcome the bitterness but not cloying or really all that sugary. Has a great density and a claustrophobic fruity hop character that I like here (a little like immersion in invasive honeysuckle). No warmth or burn, but heft behind the fun.

Had at Foamfest in Fayetteville. Pours slightly hazy. Bready and sweet. Some floral. Medium bodied. Slight alcohol.

No head to speak of, amber gold color. Faint malt aroma. Malty palate is overpowered by the alcohol. I canít say much more than ... itís beer.

12oz of meh from Crossroads. Poured a honey amber body under a smaller white frothy head. Aroma of rotting citrus, honey, flowers, dry bread. Body is medium to slightly fuller, avg carbonation, lingering flavor and a sweeter bittereness on the end. Flavor of citrus rind, dough, lemon, red grapefruit, earthy, tangerine rind. Meh.

Crown Valley Gunslinger has an extremely thick, foamy, spongy, off-white head, an initially clear (hazes up when the bottom caked contents are swished and poured in), orange, bubbly appearance, and heavy lacing left behind. The aroma is very odd- soapy? biscuit? Canít say. Taste is sweetness, white bread, floral hops, and mellow bitterness. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Crown Valley Gunslinger finishes mostly dry and easy going. No alcohol and not much bitterness is picked up, here. RJT

UPDATED: JUN 20, 2014 This beer is the bomb. No wait a minute, itís the Gunslinger. If you like a hop punch in the face this is for you. Totally see the Old West Cowboy riding off firing his gun in the air. If you drive a Prius and wear a tie to work, you will not like this. This is a Top Tier. IPA.

Pours a very clear deep orange color. Strong carbonation aroma, also citrus and grapefruit. Has more malt in it that's others. Too much carbonation I think, and it's more boozy than I like. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

AmEricanbrew (6285) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - JAN 3, 2014
Clear amber color with ivory head. Dank, citrus, melon fruit, mild alcohol aromas. Medium body. Fruity, citrusy hop flavors with a big pale malt base brew__warming lightly boozy finish--not bad

Chalsk (1090) - North Caldwell, New Jersey, USA - JAN 1, 2014
Pours a clear golden amber color with white soapy head. Aroma of grapefruit, caramel, candi sugar and earthiness. Super sweet citrus taste with a higher carbonation level. I think this would be a barely above average IPA if the carb level wasnít so harsh.

Really nice double IPA with just the right amount of malt and deliciously hopped without being too bitter. Nice opaque, dark golden color with foamy topper.
