American Double / Imperial IPA |  10.00% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
This oak-aged gentle giant has been gaining popularity over the past few years and is now available year-round.

For Burton Baton, we brew two "threads," or batches, of beer: an English-style old ale and an imperial IPA.

After fementating the beers separately in our stainless tanks, they're transferred and blended together in one of our large oak tanks. Burton Baton sits on the wood for about a month.

When enjoying the Burton Baton, you'll find an awesome blend of the citrus notes from Northwestern hops melding with woody, vanilla notes from the oak. The wood also tends to mellow the 10% ABV of Burton, so tread cautiously!

12 oz. bottle poured into tulip
(bottled on 5/14/14)

L: orange-peach ... there's some amber in it; thick head of beige foam that sticks a lot

S: caramel bomb ... classic American DIPA caramel/mango sweet; you can smell the wood ... barely but it's there

T: super sweet on the caramel/mango side but with the oak/wood note much more pronounced than it is in the nose; very bitter lingering note, but it's almost overwhelmed by the sweetness; slight alcohol taste, but it's mellow

F: thick and medium-heavy but enough carbonation to keep it drinkable

O: the oak-wood taste is real ... I like it a lot, but the caramel taste is not my thing; fortunately, this brew is not syrup like 120 Minute, so I'm not fighting just to drink it. American DIPA lovers would HAVE to love this brew, because it's got all the classic notes with the added taste of oak-wood.
