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

DandyLion (518) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2013
Golden colour with nice white head. Floral hop aroma. Taste is dry hops, bitter but nicely balanced so isn't a massive hop bomb. It's very nice, good for a hot day! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MartinT (9063) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 3, 2013
My Bottom Line:
A delicately citrusy, floral hop perfume wades within this IPA’s bubbly mouthfeel before suggesting pine needles in the finish.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the misty pale golden.
-The nose is a tad soapy.
-The dryness is quenching, especially for an IPA.
-In North America, this would be considered a very mellow IPA.
-The citrusy character is redolent of lemongrass at times.
-The pine-y finish is mildly bitter.

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 15, 2013
Cask at Cockey Pub, Århus. Almost clear golden with a quickly diminishing white head and low carbonation. Very restrained and smooth British in aroma as well as taste. Floral hoppy. Caramel malty. A little thin. Slightly bland, but high drinkabillity. OK bitter finish.

Very refreshing and easy to drink. Not too bitter, tastes like a standard bitter in many ways. Sweet and malty.
