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

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

gnarley brew, definitely for the hop lover. pours like fresh honey with bits of the comb still inside. smell is citrus hops bigtime, with some biscuity english malts in the background. flavor is huge hops, similar to the 90 minute with that sweetness at the end to balance of the IBU count. alcohol is well hidden, although this is definitely a big beer in taste. mouthfeel is moderately carbonated and medium bodied. not their biggest hop bomb, but its way up there. nice brew fresh at the dfh taproom
