Proper Job is an authentic IPA brewed with Cornish spring water and malt made from a blend of malts including Cornish grown Maris Otter barley. Proper Job is dedicated to the 32nd (Cornwall) Regiment who stoutly defended their garrison during the Indian Mutiny in 1857-58. Throughout the siege the traditional "Sunset Ceremony" (beating the retreat and lowering the national flag) was ignored as an act of defiance to the mutineers. In recognition of a "Proper Job" Queen Victoria awarded the 32nd the honour

Cask at the Gunmakers. Lovely deep golden color. Big citrus, floral nose. Light but firm bitterness backed by real citrus-hop flavor. Very quaffable and refreshing. Nothing revolutionary here, just a damned fine and drinkable hoppy ale.
