COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Occasional;
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

This is by far the best interpretation of the classic English IPA I’ve had. The aroma is floral with hints of earthy notes and just pleasant happy. Flavor adds the aroma with a nice medium

jjsint (1462) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2015
Cask at the Empress, Cambridge. Dark gold, clear. Soft ring of white head. Light aroma of spruce and tropical fruit. Bittersweet but slightly unbalanced taste. Finish is bitter without the flavour to back it up. Not great for an APA.

katrinaez (618) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 20, 2015
Claiming to be hoppy but far from it. Very creamy, which seems to be the thing over here. Not bad but not as advertised based on what we are used to. Tap in London
