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."

Nothing to look at but sharp and astringent and high ABV under a curt hoppy notes. Not bad but not great.

loco_gallego (217) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 17, 2015
Blonde, translucide. Mousse blanche relativement persistante. Au nez houblon américain agrumes-citrus, résineuse. Maltage peu présent. En bouche bonne amertume durable sur agrumes. Sinon sensation pils "crispy". Fruitée. Bonne APA/IPA rafraichissante, mais peu complexe.

Bottle, Scotland. Pours golden, no head. Fully transparent. Smell is inviting, hoppy. Taste is surprisingly not over-hopped despite aroma. Mouthfeel is sandy but not too try. Worth a try.

Davros (2408) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 12, 2015
Pours gold, small fading head. Nose shows marmalade and earthy hops along with sweet grainy malt. Semi-sweet flavours, some herbal and earthy hops along with a little marmalade again. Moderate bitterness in the finish.

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!

Lore (1516) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 8, 2015
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

50 cl bottle. Pours a copper clear with a white head that dissipates. Aroma is grapefruit and hops. Taste is slightly bitter. Palate is smooth and dry. Overall it is good.
