3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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? Can’t 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, it’s 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.

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 wasn’t 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.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle into shaker. Opaque-cloudy, honey amber in color, medium foamy off-white lasting head. Heavy floral honey aroma with plenty of fresh squeezed orange juice citrus, light cinnamon, cloves, chamomile tea. Sweet honey and citrus flavors up front with pine and nuts in the middle, lasting bitter flavor. Palate almost surely overrides some flavor with a fizzy beginning, full body, bitter finish. This is a fantastic beer. I will buy this again.

Crown Valley is an interesting one, given they seem to have many misses but a few bulls eyes. This one isn’t a double bull, but a double 18.
