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: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance - An excellent dark amber that sits and looks somewhat cloudy

Smell- A faint smell that has a somewhat oak cask smell to it

Taste - An excellent taste that despite being in the double digit for ABV has not cut or bitterness. Similiar to Three Philosphers. It is very smooth and has a slight woody taste. Quite simply a well crafted beer

Mouthfeel - So very smooth. It never stops being smooth and leaves the mouth feeling somewhat coated but in a nice way

Overall - A fantastic beer and one of the greatest higher alcohol beers on the market
