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!

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A - Pours a burnt amber with one finger of head, dissipates to a light cap and sticky lacing.

S - Wood, resiny hops, and grapefruit. A very mild burning, presumably due to the alcohol, if breathing in deep too quickly.

T - Sweet toffee continuing into roasted malt and hops with grapefruit and bitterness in the aftertaste. Bitterness is substantial but not overpowering like some IPAs. Impressively no alcohol really comes through despite the ABV.

M - Medium body and carbonation, slightly oily from the hops.

O - I very nice IPA, well hopped but not oppressive with a wonderful aroma. Adds some interesting depth to a normal IPA without deviating beyond recognition. Obviously not a session beer based on the alcohol content, but sure drinks like one.
