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."

Not bad, but om the other hand Nothing special either . Very mediocre. Want it more hoppy, more fruity and more bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DruncanVeasey (7551) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2015
Bright gold without a trace of sediment under a slim white halo. Decent mellow lychee and peaches in syrup aroma. That flavour with hints of lemon sponge, peach jelly, elderflower backed by punchy bitterness and resounding husk. Not bad- on the cusp of GA/APA having (I suspect) received an intensive makeover.

Pours golden colour with yellow creamy head, which quickly dissapeared. Aroma od tropical fruit (Chinook hops), Taste is similar with fruity sweet notes of oranges, grapefruit, and bitter dry finish. Soft body, medium carbonation and high bitterness.

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

Very nice beer, extremely quoffable. Nice fruity taste from the American hops used.
