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

Poured into Tulip.

A. Nice frothy 2 finger head when poured. Nice lacing left. Head seems to stick around forever.
Amber/Orange color.

S. Hops- citrus,piney. Malt sweetness. What I can only describe as an oakiness in the background.

T. Balance. More of the citrusy piney hops balanced against a sweet caramel malt. More of the oak/whiskey flavor in the back.

M. Smooth. Medium bodied.

D. One of the more balance DIPA's I have had. Although since it is a mixture I guess that is to be expected. High ABV was hidden nicely.
