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."

Dashimus (219) - London, Greater London, - FEB 9, 2013
Pours clear yellow/pale golden with almost no head (slight white, thin head). Aroma is moderately malty and moderately hoppy. Balance is quite good. Also heather and grapefruit present. Flavour is quite sweet, with malt, grapefruit and some citrus. Dry finish and some bitterness.

50cl bottle, poured into a tulip glass. Nice amber colour with a small head, which dissipates quickly. Sweet malt, hoppy but not overwhelming. Slight bitter aftertaste.

cirzen (5) - FRANCE - JUL 31, 2014 does not count
Sweet floral hops and biscuity malt. Carbonation, malt and aromatic hops hit the tongue first, then rolls into a lingering bitterness. A little light on the palate but the flavour and nose are a great combination and make up for it. A classic of its style.

Garrold (1214) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2014
From Waitrose. Clear, golden colour. Film of white head. Digestive biscuit, sweet malt. Fresh cut grass. Lemon. Light orange. Light toffee. Hint of honey. Taste is light dry. Hint of sweet. Palate is clean and crisp. Finish is light dry. Hint of sweet. Then, rising, lingering, mineral bitterness. Comes across clean and refreshing. Good stuff.

UXO (166) - CANADA - JUL 22, 2014
Pours a clear gold with two fingers of foamy white head, excellent retention, and heavy lacing. Nose is citrus, pine, and tropical fruit. Taste starts sweet and citrusy, giving way to a bitter finish. Mouth feel is watery, with medium body and sustained carbonation. Pleasantly light and fruity, with nicely balanced sharp hop bitterness and mild malt. The ABV may be a little high to consider this a session ale, but it’s not far off that. Quite drinkable.

Grzesiek79 (3175) - Radom, POLAND - JUL 22, 2014
Piwo dobre zwlaszcza pod wzgledem aromatu. Jest niesamowity ananas i melon. W smaku ananas i pieczone jablka oraz suszone morele. Lekko metnawe jasno zlote piwo z minimalna piana, ale to po angielsku wiec sie nie specjalnie czepiam. Chmielna nuta jest wyraznie kwiatowa i ananasowa. Dominuja te wrazenia slodowosc na dalszym planie. Finisz kwiatowy oraz ananasowy cutrusowy posmak. Piwo lekkie i pijalne.

330 ml bottle at Slow Down. Light golden with white head. Aroma has grain, malt, caramel, earth, spice and fruit. Taste is similar, nicely balanced, some honey, flowers and herbs. Decent but didnt leave a lasting impression.
