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

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours a dark orange liquid with some haze into the glass. The head is off-white and leaves thick lacings on the glass.

S: Smells of oak wood, floral hops, citrus and citrus peel. Lots of lemon and lime! Some alcohol at the end.

T: The taste has a nice oak taste towards the end. I can also find Lots of lemon and lime juice together with orange and grapefruit peel. The alcohol warms at the end. Well balanced.

M: Medium body with strong carbonation.

O: A very fresh IPA with a nice oak flavour. The lemon and lime tastes are sweet, sweet stuff!
