If you are a fan of oaky IPAs, then this is your beer. Burton Baton is an occasional brew by Dogfish Head Brewery (Milton, Delaware) first brewed about 7 years ago. Burton Baton is an English Old Ale blended with an Imperial IPA (90 min??) then aged in 1 of the 4 massive 10,000 gallon oak tanks on site.
There are more than 1 lb of hops per barrel used in Burton. This hoppy IPA is full of Pacific Northwest hops adding a lot of citrus to the mix. These hops are toned down a bit by the oak, adding some nice vanilla and wood tones.
Burton Baton is brewed in limited batches about 3 times a year.
