BEER INFO

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: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: slight haze; burnt orange; 1 finger head that receded to a thick cap; nice, thick lacing;

S: ripe pineapple is most prevalent;

T: Booze hits first and never really goes away; ripe pineapple comes in mid-palate and really helps;; oak adds depth;

M: medium to full bodied; moderate carbonation;

O: very nice; I would have liked the alcohol to be a little more hidden;
