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

Appearance- Pours a amber copper with a finger of bubbly white head.

Smell- woodsy aromas, oak, caramalts, piney hops.

Taste- Hit right away with oak and woodsy aromas then goes into the piney hops with some pine resin as well. Caramalts are there as well. The oak nicely balances the hops.

Mouthfeel- Medium to full bodied with light to moderate carbonation. Finishes sweet for the combination of young and wood-aged wood.

Overall- A tasty oak-aged Imperial IPA. I enjoyed the combo of wood used which gave the brew a good and complex profile.
