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."

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.

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 (7000) - 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.

jamaty (1246) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 10, 2015
Ambar clara. Apenas nada de espuma. Aroma escaso, ligeramente cítrico, que cuando lleva un rato servido se transforma en claro aroma a uva. Brutal sabor a uva, con algo de limón resultado de los tres tipos de lupulo que lleva. Final muy seco y amargo propio del estilo. Floja de cuerpo y carbonatacion. Muy rica.

uckelman (393) - Durham, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2015
Pours pale yellow, slighlty hazy. The West Coast hops are apparent in the aroma., along with some of the rich (but not sweet) notes of honey. Medium oily body, dry finish. Very refreshing and easy drinking.

Clear amber, small white head. Aroma is citric and slightly floral. Flavours of tropical fruit, grass, pine, light biscuit, decent malt backbone. Quite sweet initially but with a strong bitter finish. Quite a bit of body, maybe very slightly slick. Pleasantly surprised by this one.

Golden color with small white head. Aroma is a bit exotic with litchi and peach, but not too much. Pretty nice. Taste is crisp and fruity, with a small bitterness. Feels kinda british. Okay!
