3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours deep amber, with the effervescence of orange hues. An eggshell head diminishes from a cap to a thin ring, leaving soapy lace. The nose contains sweet malt, dried fruits and tiny herbal notes, all earthen-oak enhanced. Well-bittered and nicely integrated into the overall flavor palate, the wood shines through lightly toasted malts and sticky pine sap. Some sweet toffee/caramel notes and a minor tart are present, with the Glacier hop predominance finishing off an earthy pull, lightly peppering the back-palate and lingering well. Alcohol warms the mouth after the end of the pull. This is certainly complex enough, with a mouthfeel on the crisper side (carbo levels) of oily, in lieu of a sticky palate. Again, very well integrated, and a definite "fork" on the traditional impy IPA. An interesting rate, and I’m glad I picked up a few so that I will be allowing the other to age to sample at a later date. If the character changes, I will re-rate accordingly. Nice job.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Aroma of charred malt, citrus, vanilla, flowers, and a touch of raspberry. Apears orangish-copper, clear, thick head, beautiful lace. Tastes of reisling grapes, flowers, passion fruit, a touch of pine resin, followed by a flash of mild grapefruit bitterness. Palaye very nice, fizzy, but not enough for a 5. Overall, wow! This is a great beer! Dogfish Head never fails me!

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Deep lacquered color, hardly pale. This was good, but despite the complexity I still enjoy their 90 minute ipa better. I do like the hop choice they’ve made for this. It smells a bit more mossy and outdoorsy than the standard beer. It reminds me of my boy scout trips more than almost any other beer, so I think that is it’s strongest point. Sticky lace all over the glass. Really good, but I will still reach for the cheaper standard beer

Super smooth sweet maltiness and fantastic hop boutique. The oak notes cone through. Love it.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours Amber, brownish. I was in an awfully dark place with weird lighting so, I may be wrong here.
Smells hoppy, some malty feel to it. Tastes of strong hops on a big swig but when approached mildly, especially rolling it at the tip of your tongue, you can detect hints of sweet almost caramel.
Burton Baton didn't disappoint.

Draft - Skunky hops, caramel malts and slight oak. Clearish orange with a rich beige head. Sweet orange candy and skunky with a bit of booze. A nice DIPA.

This is a fresh bottle from the 2014 batch. I prefer my Burton aged so this is my impression of it fresh. Pours a copper/orange with a frothy tan head. A hoppy citrusy nose with a hint of oak aged booziness. Has a medium body with a malty backbone and a sweet, sticky finish.

One of the better beers I've ever tasted. If it wasn't for the exceptionally high alcohol content I would drink it more often. Beer shouldn't taste this good.
