To me, this is one of the best beers on the market right now. Dogfish Head always impressed me with everything they put out, and Burton has been growing in popularity (rightfully so!).
I'm posting this review about the last time I had it -- at their brew pub and on tap.
The oak aging process that this beer goes through really does wonders. I've had a lot of oak aged products from other brewers in the past, and most of the time they end up just being OK.
This is a hell of an IPA, though. The beer itself (even without the oak aging) would be great. But you add in that oak touch and it just sets this beer off from the rest of the pack. Honestly, I could drink this alone for the rest of my life and live in bliss.
Interesting to note is that the beer is a lot heavier than you'd think by looking at it. It's super sticky once it dries in the glass and is not something you can pound at all. I mean, that's true of a lot of IPAs, but Burton even more-so.
Serving type: on-tap
