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."

Not bad, but om the other hand Nothing special either . Very mediocre. Want it more hoppy, more fruity and more bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: NOV 17, 2017 500ml from bottle bought at Tesco. Lightly hoppy IPA, easy drinkable. Pale yellow and soft aroma. More carbonated and slightly stronger than the cask version

Pint bottle. Pours a pale and clearish orange gold with a white head. Aroma: pine, peach, grapefruit and mild citrus notes. Taste: pine, citrus, peach, grapefruit, nettles, mild tropical and biscuity malt flavours. Mild earthy flsvours. Thin to medium bodied. Moderate carbonation. Mild sweetness followed by moderatr lingering bitterness. Easy drinking and quite pleasant, without being unique or amazing. Good attempt at the style nevertheless.

Nice and hoppy with some fruit notes to it. Clear golden in colour. A fairly smooth IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours gold from the bottle with a thick, frothy white head. Aroma is full of lemon and orange peel, lightly floral, with noticeable caramel hints. Taste is bittersweet with a tart lemony bitterness competing for dominance with the sweet caramel base. Finishes increasingly tart. Body is light to medium with moderate carbonation. Not a great deal of complexity but still an entertaining and refreshing brew. Good summer drinking.

English IPA. Aroma is fairly strong and fruity. Golden colour, frothy head. O.K. beer. Not my favourite type of IPA.

Iznogud (4347) - CROATIA - OCT 30, 2017
Bottle, 500 ml, from Pivoljub. Shared with IHC. Cloudy golden, medium white head. Citrus, malty, bit sweetish, light bitterness and body. Moderate carbonation.

Firstofthefallen (17) - Middleton Tyas, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 25, 2017
Slight citrus scent upon opening bottle. Colour is a bronze caramel, with little head and moderate carbonation. Flavour is deliciously hoppy with a slight floral note and a rich bitter aftertaste. Robust bold texture and a lingering bitter, slightly metallic aftertaste. A most satisfying brew!

UPDATED: OCT 22, 2017 Une belle IPA anglaise, façon Bitter. Apparence assez classique, couleur dorée, jaunâtre. Col blanc cassé stable à qqs millimètres (2/3mm) Le nez est sur les fruits exotiques et les agrumes. Côté résineux aussi. Bonne effervescence. Bouche distinguée, c’est une belle IPA, les houblons sont présents, notes d’agrumes, de lime, fruit de la passion, l’amertume est bien présente mais maîtrisée. La finale est assez sèche façon bitter, c’est une bière désaltérante très typée IPA anglo-saxonne. J’adore. Un beau produit à goûter absolument. Le Proper job fait largement le Big job. 😏

MarcinG (1003) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - OCT 13, 2017
Butelka 500 ml . Zloty kolor. Piana mala o bialym kolorze,opada natychmiast. Wyrazne nuty owocow tropikalnych w zapachu podparte cytrusami. W smaku dosc slodkawe:mango ,marakuja i ananas,pozniej pojawia sie grejpfrutowe albedo i goryczkowy finisz. Ok

MBlessing (1581) - Württemberg, GERMANY - OCT 10, 2017
Als Proper Job Cornish IPA, recht klares goldgelb üppiger schaum, im Geruch hopfig ganz leicht fruchtig malzig harzig, so spiegelt es sich auch im Geschmack wieder dazu kommt noch eine kräftige Hefe Note und eine kräftig säuerlich herbe Note
