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."

Bottle: Fruity, hoppy aroma with mainly notes of citrus. Flavor is light malty, light sweetness and intensive aroma hop notes with citrus and citrus peel. Dry, medium bitter finish. Good one.

Golden. White head. Not much scent, a tad sweet. Not that much hoppy taste, a bit of a metallic finish. Some bitterness. Not a favourite.

Like this one. Pleasantly refreshing to drink. Sharpness and bitterness is tempered by a sweetness. Very easy to drink at 5.5% - could easily get you into trouble! More thoughts at http://hophead.tumblr.com

Bottle. Golden hazy with a thin white head. Smells of grass and hay. Taste is sweet with some citrus and malts. Finish is bitter and dry but not that bitter that you expect from the title on the bottle

Beershine (5201) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - FEB 14, 2011
Bright honey gold, not much head. Aroma a bit papery and woody, then yielding to healthy apple and hints of honeydew. Soft palate. Flavors are much brighter and more robust than the aromas. The malts are dry and subdued and the finish is lingering, toasty and with the same delightful understated herbal hop bitterness of the cask version. Not as nice as the cask version but still pretty good.

Dark golden with a fluffy white head. Aroma; Very fruity, some citrus squesed on top of peaches. A very hoppy nose, classic english. Flavours; Fruity in the mouth aswell, good hoparomas with lime/lemon zest, herbs, even a little earthy tone. Sweet, medium - body, sweet but balanced bitternes. Summary; This is more a english IPA, with hop aroma focus. Not a big IPA, but a easy to like IPA

Vignale (1979) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 15, 2011
Bra crossover mellan engelsk och amerikansk IPA som dock ligger närmare den engelsk förlagan. Jag tycker välhumlab ESB kanske är en bättre beskrivning. Rejäl kropp med Maris Otter men och USA-humle hanterad på engelskt sätt ger en fruktigt frisk blommig citruskaraktär.

0.5l bottle @ Baran. Pours a yellow/orange body with absofruitly no head. Nose is sweet and quite fruity. Citrus and orange zest. Light bodied with not medium carbonation and a medium dry finish. A nice IPA

Pours a lovely golden orange, small head which disappears almost at once. Powerful hoppy nose, almost perfumelike. Hints of pineapple and perhaps some grapefruit. Aroma is likewise (no surprise here) full of hops! I detect some hints of lime, and a hint of soap in the aftertaste. There’s also some nuts and strong cheese coming through in the aftertaste (though that might be remnants of the piece of cheddar I ate half an hour ago ;) Taste is initially quite bitter, but well balanced against the sweetness which shines through later. The bitterness then returns and lingers around after the finish, like that person who always stays just a little longer, even though everyone else has left the party. Nice full body, carbonation is satisfyingly low. Not the best IPA I’ve had so far, but pretty good. It would probably be perfect on a long, hot summer day, as the description says, but I think it’s also pretty good on a short, cold, dark winter (fri)day here in Norway! Especially for a novice hophead with a craving for a fix!
