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."

It says "Powerfully Hopped" and thats true. Fresh, aroma with citrus and tropical fruits. Fruity in the flavour too giving a pleasant juicy, sweet taste with a good hit of fresh green hop. Its not overpowering though.

Pizd (435) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2013
(Bottle): Pours a hazy gold/orange with a big white head. Aroma of grapefruit, lemon zest but not much else, a bit weak yet inoffensive. The flavour however is really good. Grapefruit, oranges, lemon, malt, pine notes in a great balance. Bitterness is slightly muted (As with most English IPAs) which balances so well with the sweet malt.

IPAgutten79 (939) - Skui, NORWAY - OCT 26, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 10, 2015 Bottle 0.5 l @ home. Pours clear golden with small head. Smells almost nothing, bit disappointed. I get vague hops and fruits. Taste is anonymous as well, bit watery this one. I could see myself drink many of them though, as they are quite drinkable.

Pours a nice orange with sediment. Aromas of citrus and sweet malts. Similar flavors. A nice bitter finish. Good IPA.

Hanoi (927) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2013
Nose is mango, some citrus. Taste is lightly hoppy, lemon balm slight mango, grassy, slightly bitter finish. Mouthfeel is appropriate. Its drinkable, but not hoppy enough for an American style IPA but slightly to hoppy for an old school English IPA.

foxo82 (887) - Bromsgrove (via Leicester), Worcestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2013
Bottle from my Daddy-o. Bottle conditioned amber. Decent strength IPA bitter hoppiness. Not too heavy - nicely drinkable with a good duration, bitter finish. Smells of citrus and Olbas Oil* - clears the sinuses. Decent IPA. *Other decongestant products are available.
