COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Big Boozy Blonde was brewed with a boatload of oats, giving it a creamy sweet mouthfeel with a hoppy blast. It’s like a powdered sugar donut topped with deliciously dank resinous hops. Chow down!

22 oz bottle. Clear rusty orange with bone foam. Nose is spicy orange, mango and pineapple softened by the oats. Creamy, oily medium body with a buzz. Taste is juniper berries, lime, pine needles and bitter lemon. Kind of a marmalade, gin & tonic thing going on.

hayduke (5677) - Eureka, California, USA - OCT 8, 2016
From a 22-oz bottle send to me by Strykzone . Pours a gold-orange with an off-white head. Lots of lacing. The nose is dark and dank. Citrus as well. The body is bull and quite oily. There is a huge amount of resin in the mouth feel. The flavor shows the oats and like the aroma the earthiness is pronounced and the finish is bitter. Really good. I loved this one.

Ibrew2or3 (8814) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 30, 2016
22oz bomber pours with a clear deep gold body that has copper hues and supports a dirty white head of foam that leaves behind some spotty lacing. The aroma offers up malt sweetened pine hops, bitter smelling grapefruit and some floral hops. Decent aroma. The taste delivers a wide hop load with plenty of sweetened pine hop resiny bitterness, floral hop bitterness and then orange zest and grapefruit hop bitterness. It creates a big resiny bitterness that’s tempered by sweet malts and then into the finish bitter floral and citrus hops take over and then lead to a pine and a growing floral hop after taste. Pretty good stuff but it tastes a little dated actually. Wow, there is almost no sense of the massive ABV here either.

4.3
bratschepeter (62) - Abilene, Texas, USA - AUG 8, 2016
Bottle from RSVP (Portland, ME). Pours a mostly translucent yellow-gold with a strong, white head that slowly fades to a few millimeters; sticky lacing remains to coat the glass. Aroma is sweet-hoppy but not malty, reminiscent of DFH 120 but a little more faint... some resiny notes come forth with a little agitation. Taste is a combination of light bready malt (oat?) and a heavy dose of resinous hops, with a slight boozy sweet-sour quality not unlike some barleywines that manifests itself after the initial bitter front. Nice frothy and medium-thick mouthfeel, long finish in which sweet and bitter hop flavors feature in the aftertaste. For a big beer it is quite drinkable – and very tasty.

3.8
RedSox2004 (1970) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - JUL 30, 2016
On tap at The Daily Pint. Bright orange with a slight haze, one-finger milk-white head and modest lace. Aromas of citrusy hops - orange, grapefruit, lemon - accompanied by malt, yeast and some brown sugar. Orange flavors up front, followed quickly by caramel malt and brown sugar sweetness and rich resin. Medium body and carbonation, sticky mouthfeel and a clean hop bitterness in the finish.

4.5
SDalkoholic (2424) - Linda Vista, California, USA - JUL 16, 2016
Bottle from BevMo: Poured a dense golden copper hue topped with a thick topping of whip cream like foam cap. Aroma brings about an olfaction of balance between earthy hops and grain like malting. Flavors had a bready malt backbone but the right pinch of hops that added a subtle spicing that made for a deliciously tasting beer. The oats delivery a hearty body of malts with a harmonious addition of hops that create a balance yet higher than average ABV content that drinks easy.

3.4
Ron (4182) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUL 3, 2016
Bottle. Golden orange beer with a finger of white foam. Intense pine and dank, oily citrus peel. Tons of grapefruit and orange. A little spicy, kind of sticky, and a bit on the sweet side. Flavor is pretty intense as well. Very bitter and pine forward. Very, very resinous. A lot of spicy, oily, and sticky grapefruit.
