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!

Orange in color with some reddish hues. Pretty awesome head. Off white and rocky that leaves a beautiful lacing.

Plenty of citrusy hops in the nose to go along with the pine. Just a hint of oak and vanilla.

Bold and yet very easy to drink. I can really pick up some old ale characters and then I get a hit of hops in the finish. I can see why this goes over so well. Pear and apple esters that blend well with some orange notes. There is a deep warming sensation from the oak and old ale. Loads of resin and background bitterness. NIce touch of caramel and vanilla as this warms. Some of the hops mellow and the body seems to pick up.

Very nice beer. Some warming alcohol but nothing to take away from this Imperial IPA.
