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."

at the start the aroma is very much cascade. the taste is very smooth, as a finish the hop flavour is much stronger. Over all a great beer

Bottle courtesy of Tesco. A very aptly named beer! A typical modern American style, spicy, bitter, heavily hopped IPA. Very refreshing and has more bite when served slightly cooler. Not a typical St Austel beer, but very welcome and I'll certainly buy more. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle 0,5l. Pours amber orange cloudy with some sediment. Head is white, creamy, long lasting. Aroma is fruits, citrus, cascade hops, grapefruit. Palate is slick, smooth, fullbodied, carbonation is soft and mouthful. Taste is bitter, fruity hoppy. Finish is citrusy, medium long bitter hoppy with a little soupy end. Good IPA overall.

Hirotoma (471) - Bologna, ITALY - APR 22, 2012
Buon aroma, un pò sporca, sentiti di frutta gialla, limone e pompelmo, non molto dolce, amaro per nulla invadente, molto equilibrata, si berrebbe a litri!

500 ml bottle @ Gastropub Soho, Tampere.
Pours a copper colour with loads of visible bubbles and a firm, white, lacy head. Aroma of floral hops, caramel and grass. Flavour of crispy floral hops, biscuity malts, grass and toffee. Medium bodied, soft carbonation and a bitter, dry and light fruity finish. Good.

Aroma is rather hoppy and fruity with hints of resin. Flavour is hoppy with exotic fruits and some hay. A golden ale -like feeling at the finish with grapefruits. Nice, refreshing and hoppy.

BlackHaddock (4593) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2012
500ml Bottle condition, poured into a UK pint sleeve without any sediment leaving the bottle (Sep 2011). Good, clear mid-golden colour, full head of white foam. The head sadly fell away very swiftly, leaving just a weak wispy covering along with a thin collar around the glass. The aroma is mostly of hops (label claims it is "Powerfully Hopped"), however there is also a semi-sweet malty smell just below the grapefruit type citrusy hops. The taste is mini hop bitterness (those grapfruits again), with a healthy malt undertone present from start to finish. This is almost sweet, it is sweet for an IPA, yet there are plenty of hop notes to let you know it’s an IPA: very well made and lovely to drink. The alcohol is well hidden by the blend of ingrediants, I had to check the bottle to see if mine was really 5.5% ABV.

Bottle. Clear honey with a thin head. Aroma is quite light. Balanced grapefruit hop flavour with a bittersweet finish. Palate develops into a rather intense dry hop.
