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 500 ml. Those English IPA/APAs are different to Polish ones. I don’t like them that much, but this one was allright I would say. Proper hoppy notes, even if not very distinctive.

Golden and spritzy, with a bright hoppy nose. Crisp and dry-bitter, excellently balanced with lightly fruity and sweet malt. Very nice.

500ml bottle with b/b 08/16. Pours almost crystal clear pale gold with small white head dissipating gradually. Gentle carbonation. Aroma of apricot and some pineapple. Flavours of sweetish grapefruit and pineapple with light malt. Medium mouth feel. Hop bitterness in finish with light citrus. Taste is more mellow when the yeast is added. Very nice ale.
