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."

Bottle. A good refreshing pale ale but falls a little short in the hops stakes. There is promise of a some hop action in the aroma but the flavours are pretty muted.

Pours a clear orange/golden color, topped with an average white head. Very pleasant fruity aroma, a bit citrusy and some lychee aroma. Taste starts sweet and fruity, followed by nice hoppy bitterness, not too strong but not to weak either. Very nice.

Bottle shared with BG and JFE at Vaaland Bryghus 10.01.15. Clear pale golden. Diminishing off-white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, apples and wine gum. Similar taste with medium bitterness. Good drinkability.

hank37 (140) - banksia grove, AUSTRALIA - JAN 8, 2015
Subdued spicy aromas, a big malty hit, balanced perfectly with the hops and light palette. Refreshing, light and as it’s name states - "a proper job".

Garry_Evans (51) - HONG KONG - JAN 7, 2015
A classic pale ale. Golden brown, clean nutty aroma, taste is similar with nice balance of nutty, bitter hops and malt. Fairly long finish with pleasant lingering taste of hops. Not out of this world but you could enjoy drinking this with friends all night. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not all that hoppy really. Tasted a bit flat too. Having said that, not a bad pint.
