COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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."

Clear golden yellow beer under medium white fading foam. Medium aroma intensity, some floral hops, a little tropical, underwhelming. One dimensional attack of somewhat fresh citric hops, narrow midpalate and shortish finish, medium minus concentration, quite little complexity. All of it well short of the "powerfully hopped" boast, just a feeling this is mediocre in comparison to its peers.

Bottle at home from Tesco. Aroma is sweet blackbeery, grassy hop and brambles. Touch of alcohol in the nose as well. Clear bright golden orange coloured pour with a thin loose white head. Flavour is honey, biscuit malts, metalic grassy bitterness. Assertive rough grassy bitterness lingers. A little honey sweetness in the finish as well. Drinkable enough.

JesseMartineau (73) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 26, 2014
500ml bottle. Pours pale yellow with good clarity, white creamy persisting head with some lacing. Aromas of grapefruit some light pine notes, honey some caramel too. Taste some citrus, lemon zest, grapefruit honey caramel. Medium carbonation and creamy in the mouth. not overly sweet, well balanced with some lingering hop bitterness and a touch of dryness on the finish. an easy drinking refreshing beer.

Niall73 (1386) - Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2014
Bottle. Pours an amber colour without much of a head. Aroma is honey and caramel. Medium body, medium carbonation. Lots of honey, a little caramel, really not a great deal more going on. A little citrus, its OK.

guzgorog (224) - FRANCE - FEB 21, 2014
Nez de céréales et d’un truc désagréable genre métallique. Sinon bière jaune pale, avec un col de mousse moyen, assez effervescente pour une bière anglaise. En bouche, c’est franchement pas mal, amertume sympa avec quelques fruitées (citron, pamplemousse) et un petit côté malté. L’amertume dure moyennement. Franchement une bonne surprise, une des meilleures english ale que j’ai bu, dommage qu’elle ait une odeur pas terrible ....

AdiBeer (886) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2014
Aroma: caramel malts. Appearance: light gold, very small to no head. Taste: light to medium sweet. Palate: low carbonation, light sweets continue, short finish. Overall: they may call it an IPA, but well, it isn’t really, more of a golden ale, but still very drinkable. Bottle from Hog Head Brewery, Tongham.

appearance: nice golden brown colour, large foamy head; aroma: slightly grassy, citrus, sour, grapefruit; taste: strong bitter grapefruit-flavor, citrus, moderate til strong bitterness, not the expected tropical fruit taste; overall a bit disappointing

Martin243 (742) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2014
500 ml bottle from Tesco, where it is 4 for £6 at present. Pours light amber with an off white head that fades to a skim. Orangey citrus aroma. Bitter citrus flavour balanced by a posh orange cream chocolate creaminess. Definite Terry’s Chocolate Orange and bubblegum there. Not powerfully hopped as advertised, ’ cos that’s what we all like, innit? However, this does not appear to have been thrown together in a response to what appears fashionable. but is a well balanced beer that I hope someone planned

Saeglopur (265) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JAN 28, 2014
Bottle from Galleria Kaufhof, Munich. Golden, slightly amber, clear body, with medium, frothy, white head, that leaves a fair lacing. Aroma of flowers, grass, honey, malt, slight tropical fruit notes. Taste is medium bitter, slightly dry, with grass, honey, biscuit, some citrus and only subtle fruit notes. Mouthfeel is medium to thin, with a good carbonation and finishes bitter and dry. Not bad, refreshing, but pretty one-dimensional and less fruity than promised on the bottle.
