COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This one’s for the beer geek in all of us. The Gold Stock is a cult classic that’s offered up only one or two times a year. If you catch the rare sighting of this “draft only” beer, rejoice. What we did first when we made this was we brewed a full-bodied, golden ale. Then we went absolutely nuts with the pricey German hops. This smooth but biting beer is our own individual take on the pleasant India Pale Ale. It’s one of those beers you have to try. Look for it and order two!

honey colour, big creamy head, fresh, lemon and nutty aroma, nice acidity, some astringence, very dry aftertaste - don’t shoot at me but this beer as some analogies with the great Orval.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 29, 2006
A pretty good offering from these brewers. Pours coppery. Smells of citrussy and piney hops with a nice malt base. Taste is of citrus, pine, some sage and a tangy malty finish. Mouthfeel is peppery and tingly on this one. Worth a try if one ever finds it on draught.

Rich and biscuity, toasty, rich grassy and herbal hops. Fantastic malt flavors and overly hopped

Growler in a tulip. Pours cloudy golden with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of a lot of floral hops, some pale and caramel hops, and some dough. Flavor the same, with a lot of hops for the hops used. Average texture. A good IPA.
