Williams Bros. Brewing Co is best known for recreating ancient beer recipes using ingredients such as heather, pine and seaweed, but in recent years they've also turned their hand to brewing more modern styles. Joker IPA is dominated by earthy, slightly floral hops, although subtle citrus and pine flavours do make an appearance. Well balanced, clean and lightly bitter, this is a firmly British-style IPA.

William Bros started off as a home brew shop in Glasgow and were ticking along quite happily until 1988 when one day a lady wandered in with a recipe. The recipe was in Gaelic for leann fraoch (heather ale) and had been handed down through the generations, but she didn't know how to brew it.  The two got together and after a period of experimentation the first William Bros beer was born!

    average IPA, if that's what you call this, not a very tasty and tone of the most hopless beers ever (Posted on 10/04/2017)

  5. lets put a smile on that face Review by Heavy D

    Great beer, from a fantastic brewery, drinkable in a session, hoppy without going over the top like some IPAs (Posted on 08/04/2017)

  9. Bland Review by KMH222

    Drinkable and fairly reasonable, but certainly NOT 'wickedly hoppy'! Wouldn't bother again. (Posted on 20/03/2017)

  10. Very much enjoyed Review by stefcha
    Rating

    Bought a few extras of these for my dad after it being his favourite from a "Great British Beers" mixed case I supplied him with, and he considers it the "best ‘hoppy’ IPA I have ever tasted. Zingy, refreshing". He's not let me have any yet, so it must be decent! (Posted on 28/02/2017)

  11. Good IPA Review by Gregor
    Rating

    A Great everyday IPA from a great Scottish Brewery.

    I wouldnt say it is ridiculously hoppy compared with other highly hopped beers but that is not necessarily a bad thing (Posted on 25/02/2017)

  12. Decent IPA Review by dawslevel7
    Rating

    This is a nice, solidly performing IPA, without being anything too spectacular. If you don't like your IPAs very hoppy this may be for you. There's better ones out there but I wouldn't be disappointed if someone bought me one and I'd have it again. (Posted on 23/02/2017)

  14. Batman Review by Pinchy
    Rating

    Not sure what the joke is meant to be here. This is a fine beer worthy of being in anyone's case. A good dose of hops in a good IPA style, but without the often associated high strength. A good one for having more than one. (Posted on 15/11/2016)

    Not bad. Not great either. Wasn't that hoppy. (Posted on 18/06/2016)

  20. Only alright Review by Chris H
    Rating

    This is nice enough, but a little disappointing. You'd be happy if you find one down the pub, but would have liked a little more flavour. Maybe a notch above the average UK supermarket beers. (Posted on 24/05/2016)

  21. Ho ho ho Review by Llamaman

    Nice enough IPA, but 'wickedly hoppy' is writing cheques it can't cash. (Posted on 21/05/2016)

    Don't expect fireworks. But a decent IPA and a good basket filler for the price. (Posted on 09/04/2016)

  27. What you would expect from the UK Review by Adam Hooker
    Rating

    For me, UK breweries just can\\\'t quite get the hops right.

    You know a good UK IPA, for the most part, because it will smell like an Odell IPA but when you sip it won\'t live up to it.

    This is a perfect example. Great colour, beautiful scent, a nice hoppy start, but then no follow up. Somehow UK guys need to discover the art of maintaining a taste. (Posted on 15/01/2016)

  29. Bargain session ipa Review by SteveP
    Rating

    The wickedly hoppy tag probably doesn\'t do this beer any favours. It\'s not a massive hop bomb but it is really well balanced. Lovely blend of hops and malts resulting in a reasonably punchy citrusy fruit flavour with a bittersweet finish. At £1.99 for a 500ml bottle it\'s cheap as chips. Decent but unspectacular session IPA. Wish I could give half stars... a solid 3.5 for me. (Posted on 22/12/2015)

    Decent but unexceptional. (Posted on 16/10/2015)

  31. Average Review by Slapbang
    Rating

    Decent citrus and fruitiness to it, a little floral and light bitterness. Not anything special about it but decent session ale. (Posted on 26/04/2015)

  32. No joke... Review by AdyG
    Rating

    Pretty much standard fare for the style of beer. That's not to take anything away from it as it is a good beer. It just doesn't say anything special. A session ale... (Posted on 12/01/2015)
