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."

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 (223) - 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 (3224) - 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.

If I had to choose one drink before face a firing squad Or only allowed to take one drink with me on a desolate Island, this would be my choice. DELICIOUS!!!

czar (4451) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 23, 2014
from bottle at mondial 2014, mtl. unclear pale yellow pour with a small white cap, some retention and lacing. lightly grainy and lean maltiness, caramel touch, english bitters - usual suspects, flowers, faint fruitiness - berries perhaps. touch of honey. moderate carbonation, light body - watery, relatively dry grassy-spicy-peppery finish. interesting interpretation.

CanCrusher (643) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - JUN 20, 2014
Bottle 0,50L. Hazy, dark yellow colour with average big, frothy, off-white head and lively visible carbonation. Aroma of orange, mango, peach, maracuya and similar tropical fruits. Taste starts light sweet and fruity. In the aftertaste flavor became a bit bitter, but as etiquette said "powerfully hopped", I expected much more bitterness, than I get. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Not bad, but doesn’t impressed me.
