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 @ Ship Inn, Mevagissey. Golden with a small creamy head. Has a good fuller-bodied texture with an easy-drinking and lightly malty character.

Graham77 (314) - Cumbria, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2015
Golden lager like in appearance. The aroma is pine and fruit. Lemon but maybe orange as well. A bit grassy as well. The flavour has a moderate sherbety sweetness and high levels of bitterness but in a zesty way and in no way unpleasant. Smooth carbonation from the bottle conditioning. Good beer, a bit like Brewdog’s Punk IPA.

eduardovl (1148) - SWITZERLAND - SEP 6, 2015
500ml bottle served in a pint glass. A: Pours a slightly hazy yellow color Forming a medium and light bubbled white head with low retention and practically no lacings left in the glass. S: Very hoppy nose. Strong notes of grassy Cascade style hops. Pine and citrus notes. Strong notes of adorable Maris Otter pale malts. Grapefruit and apricot. Hop flowers. Crispy and bready. Great. T: Slightly sweet upfront. Strong notes of Maris Otter pale malts followed by a intense hops flavor. A mix of grass, citrus and piny hops. In overall, a quite dry and crispy taste, despite the strong fruity notes: a mix of grapefruit and apricot. Hints of orange zest. M: Light to medium body. Average carbonation. Grass, pine and grapefruit in the aftertaste. O: Good drinkability. Great Pale Ale.

Pours amber with medium carbonation, thin lacey head. Full fruity nose, big hit of pineapple with lemon. Equally full taste with loads of sweet tropical fruit, caramel, biscuit, a little grass. Sweet and dry. Well defined, medium bitter hit in the finish. Great bottle of beer.

500ml Bottle from Tesco, Whaley Bridge, Derbyshire. Lovely, fragrant, lively and powerfully hopped IPA. This could be a template to any new brewer wanting to learn how to make a classic IPA well.
