3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
on handpump at Dancing Camel 13/01/13 - blaged it from David despite not being full moon!
Alcohol taste very well hidden given the strength, possibly due to being iced rather than fermented to double figures - didn’t realise this ’til I got home! Pine aroma, followed by a fairly heavy mouthfeel and slightly buttery taste, with fruit aftertaste

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Handpump. Hazy amber. No head. Aroma is a bit minty, maybe some light dark notes like chocolate, but they are understated. Sweetish, veerying towards barley wine (it’s actually iced IPA). Has some abv to dry out an otherwise sticky finish. Decent, if a little unstructured.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hand pump cask @ brewpub. Looks excellent, a deep red-orange with a naturally carbonated appearance from the hand pump. Very soft palate to boot. Aroma of popcorn butter diacetyl, as is the little sister IPA. But pumped up by the higher abv, the D doesn’t smell so overwhelming and integrates pretty well with the rich fruity esters. Nice body, it goes down so well, I forget to take notes throughout most of the pint. It’s smooth, and the ABV really works in its favor. This one could be trouble if you’re not counting.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2010 At a tasting, thanks cortesy of David Cohen, the unmixed version of the Iced IPA 25.8%, WOW, pours orange to red sticky with no head, aroma of strawberries, honey, caramel, malt, nice acidity and some grapefruit notes, flavor of sour cherries, peach, grapefruit and some alchol warmth some saltiness in there, goes down smooth and easy, sticky and full bodied. Great
From tap, @BeerFest Israel, 10% +, hazy red to brown liquid with medium beige head, nice acidity in the aroma some wild pleasant notes some cheese, balanced with some sweetness, flavor of grapefruit quite zesty and citrusy some salt notes can be sensed, finish is bitter nutty and winey. Mouthfeel is sticky and complexity is high. Excellent

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at the brewery (not really the regular Golem. Normally Golem is an iced version of their IPA that is blended down to around 10% with un-iced IPA - this rating is for the unblended 13.25% iced IPA). Pours roast red and viscous with minimal head. The nose has powerful notes of brandy, honey and orangey hops. Sweet and fruity, full bodied and waming. Dense, viscous and powerful with plenty of raisin and caramel. Still elegant with long piney bitterness.

UPDATED: MAY 13, 2008 On tap at "pre passover keg party": well it’s more of a barley wine the a double IPA, good swettish malty backbone, nice hoppiness, fruity, full bodied, some weak alcoholic notes, some weak chocolaty notes, some dried fruits like dates and raisins.
