BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Dogfish Head Craft Brewery

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!

A: Perfect clarity, light brown hue similar to maple syrup. Light tan head forms weakly and gradually reduces to the edges. Many loose bubbles.

S: Pungent, mostly pine and friendly warm wood.

T: Again, mostly pine, fading to reveal some grapefruit in the middle, and warm wood/caramel on the finish. Some sweetness is in there too. No hints of whiskey spice that might have been available in the wood. I really like this.

M: Light, a little astringent, but overall very easy drinking for 10%.

O: I'm surprised this worked. The hops are definitely restrained but still make up most of the character, while the wood reinforces any warm malt balance.
