My wife's uncle gave me his entire hop harvest this year which is awesome!!! He had 2 plants; 1 cascade and 1 brewer's gold. I've used cascade a million times and love it. Brewer's Gold on the other hand, I've never used and don't know much about. I've now inherited one metric asston of that variety and don't know what to do with it. I've read that it's mainly a bittering hop, but I have so much that I'm really hoping I can do more with it. I don't brew as much as I'd like to as I've got a very full schedule right now. Any ideas?

Highly bitter and not for flavor or aroma. Same as Bullion. poor stability in storage.
I'd make a bunch of beer with it now.

Brew as much as you can as quickly as you can, share some with brewing friends, once they dry out some, sell them to neighborhood kids as weed?

I've never used them as whole hops before, but I have used brewer's gold pellets as the bittering addition in a belgian tripel and a saison. I have heard they can give a black currant like flavor and I would agree based on my brews. They both turned out well, so I can't complain.
