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

A: Deep orange amber, foamy cream head - sticky lacing

S: Pungent and mango and pineapple, sweet mustiness. Good amount of tropical fruit astringency. Great smooth and subtle oak and vanilla notes. Some apple juice

T: Big and bold - ripe and pungent citrus and tropical fruits, huge caramel malt body, finishes with oaky vanilla.

P: Huge for the style - incredibly smooth, viscous medium to full body, sticky and very chewy

O: Great beer! Right up there with 75 and 120. Great mix of bold hops and smooth oak.
