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

Pours a very cloudy amber color with a 2 finger width foamy head. Head retention is good. Lacing is great. Has a nice citrus aroma with caramel and slight piney resin. Nice, malty caramel taste with some citrus and resin at the end. Great malt to hop transition. Excellent, excellent beer. Medium bodied with mild carbonation. Hides alcohol well, but can still feel the burn going down.

Great flavorful beer! The malt comes out predominantly. Nice oak smell and after taste. Smells nutty. The high alcohol content. Fantastic hazelnut brown color brings out the malt characteristics. High alcohol content does hit you straight. I recommend.

Pours a deep hazy amber with a two finger off-white head that dissipates to a delicate lacing. Aromas of bourbon, toffee, and sweet malt with some bitterness from the hops coming through. Sweetness from the malt hits the palate first then some IPA hop bitterness. Finishes smooth and sweet. Medium bodied with nice carbonation. Overall, another outstanding well crafted beer from Dogfish Head.
