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

12 oz bottle. Proved very fresh by bottled-on date on neck.

Pours a slightly cloudy golden amber. A big, frothy head sticks to the glass and many tiny carb trailers are visible. Looks good! Smell is tight, evergreen hops with a ton of citrus, a lot of mineral, and a little medicinal.. with some muted malt aromas. Taste starts off kind of vanilla-like, then morphs into those tight hops. A bit more of that mineral upfront as well. The finish is an absolute oak beast, very sweet IPA all the while, but tastes like a ton of wood. Feels creamy and smooth, almost a bit slick; obviously, a dry finish. Super easy to drink for 10%. Very good.
