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

Had this on tap at the Press Club.

Poured into a Dogfish head goblet.

Pours dark orange, brown with a fingers thick off white head and some solid lacing.

Smell is very similair to 90-min IPA.

Taste is ridiculous, like 90 min with the balance of malt and hops, but also a creamy, vanilla, and oak from the barrel aging. Medium, creamy body and mild carbonation.

This beer is unreal, one of my favorites I've ever had. I love 90 Minute and this takes that beer a step further with the barrel aging.

Appearance – This beer is a thick, heavy-looking, orangish-brown in color, like a dark copper, with a beautiful lasting slightly off-white head.

Smell – This is a monster hop nose filled with giant PacNW hops. I’m looking for the English-style Old Ale but it is nowhere to be found. Well maybe there’s a light funky yeast in here but this is all about the huge, resiny hops.

Taste – Although the hops are still big here I do get a slight since of the malt from the EOA thread. It’s lightly bready and a bit toasted, but you really have to search for it because the big pine from the nose, now mated with a small citrus flavor, is here in force.

Mouthfeel – This is a big beer, bigger than medium-bodied if not quite full, and slick in between the cheeks. It has some bitterness but not like you’d think from 70 IBUs.

Drinkability – This is a hop-lover’s dream. If you’re looking for a balanced mix between the DIPA and EOA threads you will be sorely disappointed. But boy I sure enjoyed drinking it.
