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!

70 IBU

I bought a four pack of this, spending 16 dollars. Now, I am by no means cheap, but thats a lot so I expect a lot- like I should see jesus or something.

The appearance was a glistening reddish gold, smelled of sweet and sour, followed by a complex variety of flavors ranging from cherries, malts, green apple, and slight hops. For an imperial IPA I was hoping for more distinct hopiness, which this beer does not have. Though the alcohol content is high, its a very smooth drink.

Overall an exceptional beer in many ways, but I didn't see jesus. Probably not something I will get again.
