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

3.5/5  rDev -17.3%

A - Dark bronze, cloudy. Big 1 1/2 finger head, light tan with nice lazing.

S - Wood, faint smell of hops, butter

T - Subtle pine flavor, caramel, toffee, nice calm bitterness from hops, buttery wood. Nice malt flavor that is not too sweet and balanced with hops. Sharp bitter taste at the end

M - Resin-y feel that doesn't last long, medium carbonation with bigger bubbles

O - Unique hoppy beer with non-sweet malts. Good for an occasional treat, especially during the fall.
