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."

Ungstrup (29369) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 22, 2008
Bottled. A very golden beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma is sweet and very hoppy with notes of elderberries, heather, and some grapefruit. The flavor is sweet with a crisp malty background on which is quite strong notes of hops giving it notes of elderberries and fresh meadow flowers at first, but later turning more into notes of grapefruit and grass, with the bitterness tingling the palate towards the end. Quite nice and refreshing. Thanks Myrup for supplying me with this beer.
