From bottle. Mostly grassy aroma. Good head with tiny bubbles that leave laces. Light copper color. Good hop bitterness from begining to end. High carbonation. Less hop bitterness than i expected.

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

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.

jhgrantjr (416) - Tennessee, USA - FEB 23, 2014
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 (5523) - 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 (1017) - 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.

firemarshal (108) - North Carolina, USA - NOV 29, 2013
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.
