Notes/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!

Growler obtained from fantasy football league shared with friend.

Pours a bright orange color with a nice sized white head. Very good clarity in the pour. Smell is full of hops with herbal notes. Some citrus as well as euro funky smells. Taste is amazing. Plenty of citrus and floral notes with a pleasant hoppy finish. Really good tasting. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and decent carbonation from the growler. Overall this is truly a great brew. More of an IPA than a strong ale to me. Nice hop finish to the taste.

Serving type: growler

Glad I got the chance to get this one from the brewery. It seems like half Belgian, half IPA. It's sweet and hoppy, has a great light orange color. Finger-thick head, decent lacing.

This beer has a really nice balance of flavors: citrus, hops, etc. I can't quite quantify exactly what it is I'm drinking, but I like it. A lot.

Serving type: growler
