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."

Not very hoppy nose. Pretty sweet taste at first, a moderate but lingering bitterness in aftertaste.

AssKicker (464) - 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.

buddybutch (97) - Nantes, FRANCE - MAY 7, 2017
From bottle 330ml. Very thin white head. Strong herbal, hop flavour. Heavy bitterness, light carbonation. Surprisingly good IPA (for those living high IBU beer)

3.3
Davros IX (334) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2017
2016 catch up - A good beer, but very lively and overall very yeasty. A strong kick of bitter and fruity hops and a thick mouth feel with a level of creaminess.

2.9
poech73 (409) - Braine, BELGIUM - APR 30, 2017
From Au shopping Petite Forêt :: Casual Ipa >> Bière blonde semi-filtrée quasi sans col, aromatique et caramélisée. Nez fruité, citronné et mandariné. Attaque caramélisée, fuyante et ronde. Amertume désagréable sur des notes de pépins de citron à la finale acre et herbacée qui jure sur le corps malté. Plus assoiffante que désaltérante. #392

stepskismuk (3) - Novi Sad, SERBIA - APR 28, 2017 does not count

3.6
Lele (556) - Padova, ITALY - APR 19, 2017
Classica english IPA. Amaro che si sente e permane nel retrogusto. Pulita, tranquilla, non si fa particolarmente ricordare, ma disseta e da discrete soddisfazioni.

3.1
lokis333 (490) - Biržai, LITHUANIA - APR 16, 2017
Clear gold color with minimum white foam. Aromas of sweet fruity hops such as grapefruit and orange. Palate, light body with thin body leaving dry finish. Taste, sweet-ish of hops, grapefruit and orange peel with touch of lager malt. Overall, okay, not bad, better than expected. Still fairly simple but has hop character to it.
