Around The World In 80 Beers Episode 196: Jaxon IPA

Jaxon IPA

Pours a slightly cloudy* dark amber colour. The head is large and foamy, made up of extremely fine bubbles which fade away to a thick cap.

First sip: Lots of toffee malts with a faint hint of coffee. Mild hops taste at first, but it builds into a very long-lasting, almost pine resin hoppyness on the back of the tongue. Mouth-feel is medium, slightly creamy, and a little astringent, with a mild carbonation tingle on the tongue.

Oh, this is a yummy beer. It is perfect for hot Summer days. And, as I discover, hot Autumn days. I think this is the perfect BBQ beer, but I may be a little biased about this because I am using it to wash down a left-over sausage and hot mustard sandwich**. Like the Brewbacca last episode, I could easily smash a six pack of this - and then fall over because the wobbly boots get me*** - because oh boy does it go down easily. Even so, it is worth taking time to drink because the beer tastes better was it warms slightly in the glass - the malt becomes more prominent and you become used to the hops. It is very English that way.


Jaxon IPA
Badlands Brewery, Orange NSW
5.6% alc/vol
500ml bottle

*Or very cloudy if you pour in all the beer and yeast. Can't be Wasting Beer.
**Left over sausages from dinner last night. Not left-over sandwiches. Just wanted to make that clear.
***That's 3 litres of 5.6% beer!

Same again, sir? Yes please!
