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."

Jonb5 (432) - Greater London, - NOV 27, 2012
Golden colour, clear, small head which didn’t hang around long. Aroma was pine and citrus, the cascade hop was also prominent. Tasted lemon, maris otter malt and some apple. Finish was long wheaty and bitter. Fairly light body, crisp texture with some carbonation. Very well balanced IPA, no weaknesses.

Bottle from Tesco. Pours clear golden with some sediment. Aromas of biscuity malts, citrus. Taste is crispy hoppy, bitter, grapefruit, biscuit, citrus. Definitely one of the best beers you can find in a supermarket.

Pours amber with medium carbonation, thin lacey head. Full fruity nose, big hit of pineapple with lemon. Equally full taste with loads of sweet tropical fruit, caramel, biscuit, a little grass. Sweet and dry. Well defined, medium bitter hit in the finish. Great bottle of beer.

Hippoman (171) - Durham, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2015
500ml Bottle from Tesco, Whaley Bridge, Derbyshire. Lovely, fragrant, lively and powerfully hopped IPA. This could be a template to any new brewer wanting to learn how to make a classic IPA well.

Hallstein (307) - Skogn, NORWAY - AUG 4, 2015
Light floral fruity aroma. Slight citrus. Flavor is fruity and herbal. Citric and grapefruity flavor. Well carbonated. A thirst-quenching english ipa! Quite good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

cityzen (91) - FRANCE - AUG 3, 2015
Voilà une IPA de type anglais, séche et amère en entrée de bouche, quelques notes fruitées liées au choix des houblons qui la compose. Je la trouve efficace mais pas aussi réussie que sa grande soeur la "Big Job"

kermis (7224) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 4, 2015
Bottle shared, a little past it’s sell by date unfortunately. Pours slightly hazy orange with a minimal off white head. Aroma of lightly floral hops, citrus and fruits. Flavour is light to moderate sweet and moderate bitter. Light to medium bodied with soft carbonation. Decent even though it’s probably past it’s prime.

Cyberbong (10) - - JUN 26, 2015
Clear, pale golden color with a medium white head. Aroma isn’t that big, pine, mango, slight citrus. Taste has some background malt, grapefruit, light sweetness. Slightly oily texture. Aftertaste has some malt characters and a long profound bitterness. Average IPA.
