500 ml Bottle APPEARANCE: Nice clear golden color that poured with very little to no head and fair carbonation. AROMA: Grapefruit on the nose with not much else. Maybe a slight floral character. As the beer warms notes of pine start to come through which pairs nice with the citrus. TASTE: Nice clean flavor with the hops stealing the show. I really get the chinook hops. Very crisp and refreshing. Perfect for a hot summer day. PALATE: Light bodies with a slight oiliness that coats the mouth. Finish is a crisp semi-dry that finishes quickly. OVERALL: Nice golden ale that is hop forward. Label puts an emphases on the hops and although hop forward it is not a hop bomb by any stretch. Good Beer!

golden colour with floating particles; moderate sized, not too long lasting white head; aroma of grapefruit, honey and some tropical fruity notes; taste of grapefruit, some tropical fruits, hints of honey and maltiness - very well ballanced IPA - nothing really special, nothing extra, but very enjoyable - I think, its name (i.e. ’Proper Job’) is a perfect choice - not a ’work of art’, but definitely a proper job

Taste of citrusy peach, lemon, some apple, lemon and a little caramel sweetness. Medium bodied and a moderate carbonation. A crisp hop bitterness in the finish. Quite smooth, tasty and refreshing.

lebermilz (103) - GERMANY - JAN 29, 2015
Red golden, white, not very long lasting froth. Smells fresh, not too fruity with hints of ctítrus, peach, passion friut, vanilla, aniseed. On the palate really hoppy, reminds me a little of a northern German Pils. Half litre bottle is quite a good idea - this is a thirst quenching beer!

Bottle. A good refreshing pale ale but falls a little short in the hops stakes. There is promise of a some hop action in the aroma but the flavours are pretty muted.

MarkoNm (1508) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JAN 23, 2015
Pours a clear orange/golden color, topped with an average white head. Very pleasant fruity aroma, a bit citrusy and some lychee aroma. Taste starts sweet and fruity, followed by nice hoppy bitterness, not too strong but not to weak either. Very nice.

Bottle shared with BG and JFE at Vaaland Bryghus 10.01.15. Clear pale golden. Diminishing off-white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, apples and wine gum. Similar taste with medium bitterness. Good drinkability.
