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."

jamaty (1355) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 10, 2015
Ambar clara. Apenas nada de espuma. Aroma escaso, ligeramente cítrico, que cuando lleva un rato servido se transforma en claro aroma a uva. Brutal sabor a uva, con algo de limón resultado de los tres tipos de lupulo que lleva. Final muy seco y amargo propio del estilo. Floja de cuerpo y carbonatacion. Muy rica.

Pours pale yellow, slighlty hazy. The West Coast hops are apparent in the aroma., along with some of the rich (but not sweet) notes of honey. Medium oily body, dry finish. Very refreshing and easy drinking.

Clear amber, small white head. Aroma is citric and slightly floral. Flavours of tropical fruit, grass, pine, light biscuit, decent malt backbone. Quite sweet initially but with a strong bitter finish. Quite a bit of body, maybe very slightly slick. Pleasantly surprised by this one.

SinH4 (1138) - Garching, Bavaria, GERMANY - JUN 3, 2015
Golden color with small white head. Aroma is a bit exotic with litchi and peach, but not too much. Pretty nice. Taste is crisp and fruity, with a small bitterness. Feels kinda british. Okay!

DruncanVeasey (7712) - NUNEATON, TOP, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2015
Bright gold without a trace of sediment under a slim white halo. Decent mellow lychee and peaches in syrup aroma. That flavour with hints of lemon sponge, peach jelly, elderflower backed by punchy bitterness and resounding husk. Not bad- on the cusp of GA/APA having (I suspect) received an intensive makeover.

vinivini (750) - BELARUS - JUN 1, 2015
