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!

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: pretty clear; burnt orange; 1/2 finger head that dissipated within seconds; minimal lacing;

S: boozy; caramel malt and a little tropical fruit;

T: alcohol is present throughout; sweet malt is dominant with ripe pineapple in the background; oak really adds depth;

M: medium to full bodied; moderate carbonation;

O: very nice; I would have liked the alcohol to be a little more hidden and the hops to be a little more forward;

Serving type: bottle
