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!

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.

Love everything's about this beer an like many others, wish it was brewed during the summer.

Nose is amazing, look is so cloudy yet almost glowing. Smell is fresh w IPA notes. Taste is smooth an a balance of wood hops and just a GOLDen taste.

Ct doesn't have much but I'll put nebco against anyone! Boom!
