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!

Bottle.
Appearance: Orange. Clear. Thin, fizzy head.thin bubbles make lacing.
Smell:
Taste: citrus. Candy sugar. Light oak. Alcohol.
Mouthfeel: medium-low carbonation. Fairly big body. Sweet.
Overall: great imperial. Balanced well. Not too oaky. Would have scored higher if aroma was there. Will buy again.
