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 Jackson’s rare beer club by late November 04 and available in 12 ounce full distribution in early January 05.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 16/20
elektrikjester (90) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JAN 7, 2011
Pours a beautiful amber-orange. Off-white head barely lasts, leaving a trace of lacing. Aroma of grapefruit and alcohol dominates. Flavor is sour and bitter, driven by hoppiness, alcohol, and little else. Palate is characterized by moderate carbonation. Overall, this beer is definitely an IPA on steroids, but where was the oak aging? I suppose I could taste a little woodsiness, but I was a bit disappointed. But, if it’s a strong IPA you’re after, this one delivers the goods.

ronaldtheriot (2037) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - JAN 28, 2018
Burton Baton has a very thick, ivory head, a bright, orange, mostly opaque, but not cloudy, appearance, and heavy glass lacing. Aroma is of strong & sharp pale malts, and the flavor is of strong, yet not harsh, pale malt, moderate hop resin, sweetness, nougat, and dates. Mouthfeel is heavy, and Burton Baton finishes medium dry and memorable. Also, I never really noticed a wood aspect. RJT

kambei70 (1157) - - DEC 14, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2017 Pours hazy deep amber/brownish with a medium sized, thick/creamy, white head that lasts. Fades to a lasting cap. Smells of caramel malts dank, piney and citrus. Tastes sweet malt and citrus with some earthy piney hops. Lots of oakiness, burnt caramel and hint of vanilla. Finishes mostly dry with a long pine linger. Slight alcohol taste. Lighter side of full bodied creamy.

OnTheTrail (620) - Virginia, USA - NOV 10, 2017
Pours clear amber, big off white head. Aroma is rich malt, orange, vanilla, wood. Taste is rich wood, toffee, vanilla. The alcohol is mostly dissolved into general warmth. The hops are noticeable, but subtle - the IBUs balanced by the malt and ABV. Fairly heavy, rich, creamy mouthfeel. Avery good well balanced beer.

Great blend of 60 minute IPA and ale. Deep and rich but hoppy citrus from the IPA. Another classic from Dogfish Head. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

trapped (3864) - New York, TURKEY - SEP 21, 2017
Bottle. Pours cloudy dark orange with small foamy off-white head, woodsy aroma, sweetish woodsy taste with medium bitterness following up, alcohol undertones, thin body, long bitter finish with slight alcohol aftertaste. Tastes more like a triple ale than an IPA.

4.1
ads135 (5232) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - SEP 10, 2017
Hazy amber color. Some really nice wood and a teentsy bit of vanilla. Mostly grassy hops, some light citrus and a dense malt backbone. Very pleasant. Picked up a bottle in 2017 at On the Rocks in Lawrence.

4.8
beern (250) - Alabama, USA - SEP 1, 2017
Pours a light whiskey color with a 3-finger off white head with a hint of oak and malt in the nose. Tastes of moderately bitter hops with a semi sweet malt backbone with a hint of astringent oak. It's medium to full bodied with moderate carbonation. It has a warming candi sugar finish. Very little alcohol in the taste. Very complex and very good.
