Brewed by:
Dogfish Head Craft Brewery
Delaware, United States

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

Gorgeous copper to bright amber coloring with shady light tones at the edge. Bright white bubbly yet solid head.

The scent is strangely calm, with hints of malt and tea leaves. Distant fruitiness towards the back the Pale Ale elements are stronger yet subdued.

Smooth maltiness in the body, the taste is sweet and dry. Very little complexity or taste outside of malts, I got no taste from the barrel. Despite the lack of diversity it is still a very tasty ale with high ABV and no hint of alcohol on the tongue.
