Hoppy IPA with a bitter yet refreshing taste. Not quite at the level of the double joker IPA by Williams but a lovely beer nonetheless.

Clean, clear orange/gold, pours a good thick white head that lasts well and leaves some lovely lacework after each satisfying mouthful. Loads of citrus hops on both the nose and palate, some light sweetish malt lurking in the background, ends with a long lingering finish, lovely brew!

UPDATED: SEP 9, 2014 Lovely. Fruity with a bitter finish. Nice n hoppy without drawing your cheeks. Very sessionable. One of the best from Williams Bros. EDIT: had a pint on tap today at Camperdown Place, Glasgow. Tastes even better on tap. A bit smoother and better balanced.

500ml Bottle (Sainsbury’s, £1.51):
Hoppy to begin with but a subdued, unmistakably English IPA aroma that is fruity with some orange and citrus notes along with some pine and light grapefruit notes. A very nice smell that has some floral touches and an earthy hop aroma too.
Bright amber colour with a large, two fingers tall head that is a foamy white and has excellent retention.
Very hop filled with some pine and lighter grapefruit that mirrors the nose. There is some orange and sweet fruits in the mix along with a touch of earthy bitterness.
A little bitter and quite well balanced with a nice, medium body and moderate carbonation along with a nice, crisp citrus finish that is slightly dry too.

I’ve tried this one a few times before on nights out and not fully appreciated how good it actually is. A very nice IPA that was very enjoyable. Definitely one to look out for and try if you get the chance.

Bottled, from Pulkovsky Universam in St Petersburg, Russia. Excellent hoppy IPA. Decent carbonation, very refreshing and moreish. One of my favourite beers, especially good during the very long summer evenings here in Russia. Some beers seem not to make the transition to the bottle well, but Joker IPA has no such problems. Recommended.

BeerNinjaUK (317) - Wiltshire, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2016
Pint in Fiddler’s Arms, Edinburgh. Pale yellow with white head, glossy like meringue mix. Aroma very crisp with buckets of hops - lemon, pine and bubble gum. Dry and well carbonated. Lingering oily mouthfeel. Overall refreshing and tangy. Also, served here super fresh! Fantastic.
