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."

Gyllengul med vitt skum som förvinner ganska fort. Ganska tunn, inte mycket maltighet. En ganska kraftig, skarp humlebeska med inslag av grape och bitter engelsk marmelad.

Very pleasant drinking; 500ml clear glass bottle. Pours gin-bright, short lived head, moderate carbonation. Hops are there but take some finding amongst the malts. Nice mouthfeel and a rather nice bitter finish. All in all, a good pale ale.

500mL bottle poured a golden color with small white head and spotted lacing. Aromas of bread and hops. Taste is lightly sweet balanced with a bold hop finish. Moderate body and light carbonation for an average mouthfeel. Listed on the bottle as an India Pale Ale, this is a good beer for the style.

BeerCast_Rich (1879) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 9, 2011
[500ml bottle, The Bottle, York] Pours an inviting golden, large white head, with a decent rising carbonation. Sweet, fruity nose, maybe some peach in there alongside the citrus. Bitter on the taste at first, rising sweetness appears on the finish. Quite fruity at the end. Quite nice stuff [08082011]

Oakes (12552) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 29, 2011
Hazy golden-tan. The aroma has the expected herbal, piney hops with light bready malts and a delicate berryish fruitiness. Palate is fruity, sweeter than cask, with the malts playing a more vital role. The beer is less floral as well, compared to the cask version. Still, it’s a nice hoppy bitter.

UPDATED: SEP 28, 2012 UPDATE 27.09.12 assodato che di americano c’e’ poco, rimaniamo in una pale inglese buona, A cui alzerei un poco il voto. nei profumi noto un tocco florale, erboso, con note agrumate che si riflettono anche in bocca prima che compaia un amaro deciso, vegetale, peRsistente nel retrogusto. la parte maltata crea un buon equilibrio soprattutto all’inzio della bevuta dando una discreta consistenza generale. ------� 3.3 SCHIUMA: bianca, media presenza a persistenza , abbastanza fine COLORE: oro carico leggermente aranciato, limpida INTENSITA’ / FINEZZA / AROMA profumo fresco, domina un fruttato che ricorda la mela verde/sidra, accompagnato da sentori di malto e con caramello. GUSTO / RETROGUSTO / PERSISTENZA entra con un amaro contenuto, sapori fruttati con una leggera atringenza e ancora si riconoscono sentori di mela merde. Malti di fondo, non preponderanti. Sul finire aumenta la amarezza, con luppoli ben armonizzati. CORPO / CARBONATAZIONE / CONSISTENZA corpo medio, sensazione fresca in bocca, morbida. Birra gradevole, ben costruita ed equilibrata. Il fruttato disseta, forse un pelino monotono, con amari che peró mantengono il prodotto al giusto punto per essere bevuta velocemente. di americano ha comunque poco, manca quel tocco tipico dei luppoli d’oltre oceano.
