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."

at the start the aroma is very much cascade. the taste is very smooth, as a finish the hop flavour is much stronger. Over all a great beer

Not all that hoppy really. Tasted a bit flat too. Having said that, not a bad pint.

This how an IPA should taste - bitter to the core, fresh tasting with citrus & pine notes. Rated by BrewTom

500ml Bottle from Tesco, Silverburn (£1.65): This one was my second English IPA in quick succession, following on from yesterdays Gladeye IPA and this one was quite a good offering for the style, probably coming out slightly ahead of the Drygate offering. Taste wise the two were fairly similar but Proper Job seemed to have more hops and bitterness to it, going down easily and well. I’m not sure it’s one I’d go back to all that often but it was a nice beer and one well worth picking up if you get the chance.

Clear and well carbonated. Medium strong, pleasent bitterness. Flowery with zest and herbal taste. Not a bad beer

Bought from Asda. Bit bizarre. But unique. Tasty but different to an ipa. Different to a bitter. Would drink it again but don’t quite get it.

British tasting @ Haket Pub. Golden with a tiny white head. Fruity and hoppy tones. Fruit, malt and bitterness. Medium body with a nice bitter sweet finish.

PZ (13) - Calgary, CANADA - DEC 17, 2014
From the bottle, Golden colour, a good two finger head. Aroma of malts, minimal hop flavour and bitterness. Not really an IPA, more of a golden ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Transferring some earlier reviews from my blog to RB. Märts 2014, mingi pood Bethnal Green Roadil. Kahvatu, pronksise sügavusega helekuldne toon. Vahtu tekib palju ja tihket, püsib hästi. Lõhn tugevalt tsitruseline (nagu sidruni viljaliha) ja vaigune. Kuna keegi RB-s ütleb, et tunda mustikaid, siis tõesti, üliõrnalt nagu midagi sellist oleks (või üleüldiselt midagi sügismetsast). Soojenedes muutub aroom kõntsaseks, pärmiseks, veidi nätske, leivasupi moodi. Kehalt keskmik, karbonisatsiooni parasjagu - libiseks kergelt, kuid mõrkjas järelmaitse ja kleepjas palett sunnivad õnneks pikki vahepeatusi tegema. Maitses on õige pisut karamellisust ja magusat mesisust, mis siis kohe raskelt tsitruselisse vaiku ja linnasesse mattub. Lõpuks jääb kurgupärra ka pärmist torkimist, mis jätaks nagu mulje kangemast joogist. Kokkuvõttes päris hea, kuid... soojenedes kisub veidi kahtlaseks.

500ml bottle from Tesco. Colour is amber with a creamy head. Aroma is citrus hops, the taste has hops too with orange and a marmalade bitterness.
