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

DFH Burton Baton is a creamier east coast style imperial IPA with an enjoyable smooth maltiness, low carbonation for this style, and well balanced hops. It hides the 10% alcohol very well and is overall a solid high end IPA. At 15+ for a four pack, it's a bit expensive, and for the price you could easily get 2 six packs of something just as good. The beer lives up to the hype, but is not outstandingly better than it's competitors.
