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!

3.58/5  rDev -15.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Poured into tumbler.

Orangy with two to three finger head with solid retention.

Smell is much like the 90 minute, very syrupy, fruity, not the strong hop/citrus you would expect from a classic ipa.

Almost soapy. Very mellow, malty. Very balanced taste. A bit of oak comes out. Caramel towards the end.

Pretty solid, complex, drinkable beer. Typical Dogfish Head.

I poured this beer from a 12oz bottle in to my Sam Adams perfect pint glass.It was a beautiful amber in color with a thick white head that hung around all the way down the glass. IT had a wonderful aroma, smells of fruit and malt. For a 10%er, this is tame and goes a bit too smooth for a high alcohol beer. Malty flavor comes out first with some vanilla, and a hop bite, the oak really tones this beer down. This was one of the best beers I've had. Great job by Dogfish!!
