BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Dogfish Head Craft Brewery
Delaware, United States
dogfish.com

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 10.00%

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

Very smooth IPA.
It is quite good. I'd say fruity. Not to much froth. I don't know what else to say about an IPA except I'll have it again. I haven't quite gotten to the point of differentiating IPAs too much except, hoppy, bite and ewwww. This one is mild hop and very smooth.

Bottle to glass, dark orange. Small white head, lasting suds. Legs. Aroma is mildly hoppy, orange, the slightest of oak. Taste is mildly Smokey. Warming Spices, nutmeg, peat. I think the oak aging doesn’t quite add flavor to IPA’s the way it does to stouts. But, more importantly I think, it softens the harshness that many IPA’s have. This beer may have given me an epiphany on that thought."
