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

Bought in a 4 pack on 6/17 for around $12
Bottle date is 4/7/11 and tasted on 6/18

Poured into a pint glass.
A- golden copper color, a little hazzy with two fingers of off pale golden head. Leaves waves of lacing as I drink.
S- citrus right off the bat, with a hint of hops and oak. Doesn't smell boozy. I also recognize a hint of vanilla.
T- the imperial part is very apparent. A good balance of hops, citrus at first. The Malts and tast of oak hits you at the end. Forage taste like 10%.
M- smooth with just the right balance of carbonation. The taste lingers in your mouth. Oak hits you here.
O- very smooth and drinkable for 10%. However it is 6:30 pm and I haven't eaten since breakfast and I feel this after just one. This is a beer where I am happy it comes in a 4 pack.
