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."

Jonb5 (421) - 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.

Good beer, a little too much caramel, perhaps, but good, if somewhat modest hops and a fruity note combine well. Simple artwork doesn’t work for me.

shoestring (304) - larkhall, SCOTLAND - APR 25, 2015
Amber with loose soapy looking head that almost dies completely. Quaffable indeed. Not what expected but nice and moreish. Not as hoppy as I thought it would be . Expected more of a flavour explosion but this probably made it more session able. Nice bottled conditioned ale from tesco. Tastes like a light golden bitter with a wee hoppy kick to me . Not too much IPA going on but enjoyed

Sizzler80 (501) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAR 17, 2015
Golden hazy pour with a frothy white head. Bags of great IPA aromas. Grapefruit, mango, pine, catty, some honey, caramel, malty backbone. Lovely hoppy bitterness and full bodied on the palate. I really enjoy this beer.
