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: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A - Poured a beautiful orange amber (almost pink) with a generous full finger plus of frothy white head in my oversized snifter. Lacing clung the way it does in a beer commercial. Hello Beautiful!

S - Nicely balanced hops. Subtle spicing...clove and candy. Vanilla and oak.

T - HOLY CRAP. I think I've just tasted the best IIPA I've ever had. Perhaps a bit too sweet and candied for some, this one is perfect for my tastes buds. Literally tastes like birthday cake. Caramel, vanilla, oak, candy.

M/D - A bit on the thick and heavy side. Filling for sure. Strong though. I think I'll be seeking this brew out again, but don't expect to be drinking more than one in a session.
