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

The Burton Baton is a nice DIPA. It was heavy on the sweet malt and abv which makes this a sipping beer an not a session ale. The beer poured a nice clear amber with thin white head that laced nicely. The scent was full of fresh hop that carried pine and citrus notes. The taste was very sweet and malty which helped to balance the bitter citrus hops. There was also a nice subtle back drop of pine. The mouthfeel was full body with subtle carbonation. Overall it was good...but one and done for me.
