COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Unfiltered. 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."

Creedence (287) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 12, 2013
500ml bottle at Cork Cricket Club. Pours a clear golden with a thin white head. Not too many sparkles, looks a little on the flat side. Aroma is lovely and fruity - a pile of fresh citrus and strawberry, Cascade hops are very prominent. Taste is medium sweetness and medium bitterness. Quite nicely balanced. Not too dry a finish, nice light bitterness, maybe a touch under-carbonated. Overall, very refreshing and pleasant drinking.

Cold bottle. Pale orange, little head. Decent enough - a little watery, earthy, balanced bitterness with no astringency. Drinkable beer, but not very exciting.
