COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottled. Occasionally available in cask.
First brewed in December 2005 for the St Austell Brewery Celtic Beer Festival.
Ingredients:Cornish Spring water and malt made from 100% Cornish grown Maris Otter barley. Cascade, Chinook and Willmette hops.
Proper Job is dedicated to the 32nd (Cornwall) Regiment who stoutly defended their garrison during the Indian Mutiny in 1857-58. In recognition of a ‘Proper Job’, Queen Victoria awarded the 32nd the honour of becoming a Light Infantry Regiment.
"Light, clear and refreshing with an assertive hop bitterness, Proper Job IPA is based on a traditional IPA recipe which makes it perfect for long, hot summer days."

Pours a clear orange/amberish colour with good carbonation. Sweet fruity aroma, notes of raisin, malts, vague citrus. Sweet/sour flavour, very nice balance, strong hoppy flavour. Goes down smooth, thin bodied.

cirzen (5) - FRANCE - JUL 31, 2014 does not count
Sweet floral hops and biscuity malt. Carbonation, malt and aromatic hops hit the tongue first, then rolls into a lingering bitterness. A little light on the palate but the flavour and nose are a great combination and make up for it. A classic of its style.

Garrold (1227) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2014
From Waitrose. Clear, golden colour. Film of white head. Digestive biscuit, sweet malt. Fresh cut grass. Lemon. Light orange. Light toffee. Hint of honey. Taste is light dry. Hint of sweet. Palate is clean and crisp. Finish is light dry. Hint of sweet. Then, rising, lingering, mineral bitterness. Comes across clean and refreshing. Good stuff.

UXO (179) - CANADA - JUL 22, 2014
Pours a clear gold with two fingers of foamy white head, excellent retention, and heavy lacing. Nose is citrus, pine, and tropical fruit. Taste starts sweet and citrusy, giving way to a bitter finish. Mouth feel is watery, with medium body and sustained carbonation. Pleasantly light and fruity, with nicely balanced sharp hop bitterness and mild malt. The ABV may be a little high to consider this a session ale, but it’s not far off that. Quite drinkable.

Grzesiek79 (3181) - Radom, POLAND - JUL 22, 2014
Piwo dobre zwlaszcza pod wzgledem aromatu. Jest niesamowity ananas i melon. W smaku ananas i pieczone jablka oraz suszone morele. Lekko metnawe jasno zlote piwo z minimalna piana, ale to po angielsku wiec sie nie specjalnie czepiam. Chmielna nuta jest wyraznie kwiatowa i ananasowa. Dominuja te wrazenia slodowosc na dalszym planie. Finisz kwiatowy oraz ananasowy cutrusowy posmak. Piwo lekkie i pijalne.

American inspired Englishman with a good white cobweb foam. Many bubbles, carbonated Much Bitter. Aroma of orange.
