COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Unfiltered. Occasionally available in cask.
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."

UPDATED: JAN 31, 2014 I felt I had to edit this rating. I’ve been experimenting a lot more with IPA’s recently and I haven’t found one which comes close to Proper Job. This isn’t a good beer. It is truly a GREAT BEER! I felt that I couldn’t do anything but give it top marks in all respects. Original rating; The Beeriest Beer in Beerdom. This is what a really good Ale used to taste like decades ago. Bitter, Hops++, Malty, a real experience in ’proper’ beer. ’Proper Job’ - Absolutely!.

If I had to choose one drink before face a firing squad Or only allowed to take one drink with me on a desolate Island, this would be my choice. DELICIOUS!!!

This beer has to rank among the best I have ever tasted. Beautiful pine citrus aromas upon the nose due to Williamette hops, along with a bold attack of cascade, Chinook that dances across the tongue. Despite being heavily hopped, this ale balances out nicely with malty sweetness. A gorgeous ale!!

Cornish ipa de 5,5 % abv, avec malt Maris Otter pale. Houblonnage en willamette, chinook et cascade. Format 50 cl (merci), et étiquetage soigné avec échelle de valeur gustative, niveau bitter de 4 sur 5, et sweet de 2 sur 5. Le brasseur sous-titre son label par la mention "powerfully hopped", c’est sympa. Cette bière a obtenu plusieurs récompenses par l’association Camra dans ce qu’ils appellent les "champion bottled beer" : l’or en 2011 et l’argent en 2013 et 14. Mon exemplaire était 2 mois avant date. Couleur doré soutenu brillant, à la clarté pure, cristalline. Bulles moyennes en diverses colonnes droites, vives. Mousse blanc cassé, à flocons moyens, stable à 3 mm. Arômes d’agrumes, malt clair, mandarine, houblon fin. Très beau nez. 1ère bouche souple à l’entame sur malt fin, et amertume incisive, aiguë, distinguée. Arrière-bouche au développement remarquable de l’amertume. 2ème avec équilibre, force de l’amertume, pointe de houblon vert. Arrière-bouche complexe et longue. 3ème à la très grande amertume, aux très nombreuses nuances. Arrière-bouche très large, bien centrée sur l’amertume. Longueur au nez plus citrique, mais la bouche donne une amertume au panel impressionnant de saveurs. Jambes fines et longues. Levure fine, un peu boisée, très belle ligne. Alcool très bien, il paraît plus que son niveau, mais les 50 cl aide à la chose !! Finale avec une très légère pointe fumée stylisée, c’est remarquable. CONCLUSION : ce "proper job" ne doit avoir aucun scrupule par rapport à son frère le "big job"... Il est tout à fait remarquable, et je suis d’accord avec les récompenses que lui a données Camra à plusieurs reprises. Bravo St Austell, on boira vos bières sur l’autel ...

UPDATED: JUL 29, 2014 A great beer, not too heavy and ideal for warm summers. It states powerfully hopped but I would not agree. It falls way short of the OTT American hopped beers that go overboard. This just has the right balance of hops and makes for a perfect brew. Well done St Austell.

Very classic English IPA, moderate hoppy, well balanced, very drinkable, good on nose, aftertaste is excellent. Citric, light caramel. golden colour, creamy white head. Nice clean aroma. Good beer.

Light Hoppy Beer. Bitter hoppiness but very easy refreshing drinking. Great summer beer.
