at the start the aroma is very much cascade. the taste is very smooth, as a finish the hop flavour is much stronger. Over all a great beer

Nothing too exciting on pour and appearance but taste makes up for it in spades. Incredible flavour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Packaging is deceiving this is waaay more american then is looks. There are the fruity Cascade hops with mixed with the dry pine resin of chinook. Very nice fresh ale.

Pours translucent apricot wit a serviceable eggshell head. Aroma features citrus and fresh hop notes. Flavor delivers piney hops, citrus and fresh malt. Mouthfeel presents OK body and peppy fizz. Get your Cornish on.

500 ml bottle @home,bb 04/2018. Golden,clear,albeit lots of fairly big sediment particles,strange. Aroma of hops and citrus. Hoppy,bitter taste. Too bitter for me.

Orange peel and malt on nose. Strong hop bitterness again orange peel notes. Nice, but just about as bitter as an English ipa can get

Dorée légèrement cuivrée, quasi limpide, amertume modérée floral agréable, portée sur les notes d’agrumes, simple mais efficace. Bouteille sous le nom "St. Austell Proper Job Cornish IPA" 33cl achetée en grande surface, Noisy-le-Grand, France, bue le 28/04/2017.

AssKicker (496) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - MAY 17, 2017
Couleur dorée, bien limpide, avec une mousse qui fini assez rapidement sur un col en pourtour de verre. Nez sur une dominante de pulpe de citron. Forte présence d’agrumes en bouche, à la fois sur le zeste de citron et la mandarine avec une bonne amertume en fin de bouche qui reste pas mal. Les grains se font sentir en toute fin de bouche avec de légères notes de céréales et de caramel. Une bonne IPA à l’anglaise qui est simple mais efficace.

fajry (2082) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAY 14, 2017
