COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The elusive brew is made from pilsner malt and amber malt with an original gravity of 26.5?P, yielding an 11% abv. It's hopped with Warrior and Glacier varieties. Primary fermentation takes place in open vessels using two yeast strains, one American and one English. For added complexity, the beer is conditioned on barrel staves of French Oak for four months before being dry hopped with Glacier at the rate of a half-pound per barrel. This elixir is then blended 50/50 with 90 Minute IPA. After blending, the beer will measure 80 IBU and 10% abv. Bottled in corked bottles through Michael Jacksonís rare beer club by late November 04 and available in 12 ounce full distribution in early January 05.

Beautiful smelling beer. Orange zest and sweet caramel with wood undertones. Solid hop aroma. Loads of flavor in this one. Caramel, oak, pine, citrus orange, herbs cinnamon, brown sugar, honey and breads. Hints of raisins and tart fruits. Strong citrus hops and a very refreshing aftertaste. Medium bodied with a creamy texture. Perfect compliment to the array of flavors.

Itís a 90 min with a slightly sweeter finish. Great DIPA, but a little over hyped in my opinion.

pictoman (367) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 8, 2014
Poured from 12 fl oz bottle. Clear, orangey-brown with light beige head. Light aroma of caramel and hops with subtle wood and alcohol. Taste of sweet malt, hops, wood, alcohol. Creamy texture. Medium-full body. As others have mentioned, some feeling of a barley wine here. A solid beer, but missing something to put it over the top.

sascienne (4) - Wisconsin, USA - FEB 25, 2014 does not count
Bottle poured into shaker. Pours a cloudy amber with pale yellow head. Smells of toasted malts and sweet pine. Tastes same - with strong deep bitter hoppy aftertaste. Iím not saying its bad, however it is a little more complex than I usually like. I think Iíll stick to the lower IPAs.

Am I losing my appreciation for iPAís? So this is a Imperial Double but it seems to busy to me. To Complex. Iím not a big fan of their 90 minute I like the 120 minute even less. I can drink their 60 minute all day. This is my first and last Burton.

Bottle. Clear copper color with a foamy head. Grapefruit and brown sugar on the nose. Flavor is similar with the malts and mild oakiness providing a good balance to the hops. Rich with a pleasant finish.
