Proper Job is an authentic IPA brewed with Cornish spring water and malt made from a blend of malts including Cornish grown Maris Otter barley.
Proper Job is dedicated to the 32nd (Cornwall) Regiment who stoutly defended their garrison during the Indian Mutiny in 1857-58. Throughout the siege the traditional "Sunset Ceremony" (beating the retreat and lowering the national flag) was ignored as an act of defiance to the mutineers. In recognition of a "Proper Job" Queen Victoria awarded the 32nd the honour

Cask - Really like Proper Job a very refreshing pint. Have had it in Hong Kong and New Zealand and loved it. The Aroma with hops and citrus is lovely.

This is by far the best interpretation of the classic English IPA I’ve had. The aroma is floral with hints of earthy notes and just pleasant happy. Flavor adds the aroma with a nice medium

The taste of Cornwall, best served from the russel in Polruan! Nice hops! Dangerous light drink that can be consumed all day on a nice summers day!

Cask at The Cleveland Arms, London. Pours clear gold with a creamy, sturdy foam head. Looks great. Zesty lemon, straw and fine dough in the nose. Nearly perfect flavor, light to medium sweet with sun-kissed straw bitterness, light dough, mild citrus. Wonderful balance. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Superb condition. Sweet finish with mild dryness, light lemon zest and rind, faint grass, straw, modest dough. Here, now, this beer is near perfect stuff.

Oakes (19426) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 6, 2010
UPDATED: APR 11, 2011 Feb 2011 at the brewery. Golden. Big, brash, fruity spicy hop aroma. Leafy, delicious and inviting. One of the most drinkable refreshing pints in England.

Aug 2010: @ George Inn, Croscombe. Light amber colour. Powerfully fruity (berry) hop aroma. Very refreshing. Fruity, almost tea-like in the finish. Properly hopped! 8-3-8-4-16 = 3.9

a phenomenally hoppy brew for a british cask ale. an absolute pleasure to drink, especially in a traditional pint glass in a olde-worlde cornish pub! not one to miss; a credit to british brewing, and to the st. austell brewery.

ladnewton (2075) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2009
Cask at Cask Pub & Kitchen, Pimlico, London on 7th October 2009. Slightly hazy gopld with white head of foam. Strong hop aroma then exquisite and intense hop kick with delicious grassy herby hop notes. A long satisfying dry hoppy finish. Given the St Austell beers to which I have become accustomed, PROPER JOB really took me by surprise as it had the flavour of a good Dark Star IPA! Excellent!
