St Austell Proper Job

This Cornish interpretation of an old-fashioned IPA is a little light in alcohol to be true to the style, but very approachable and tasty. Dedicated to the 32nd (Cornwall) Regiment, who fought in Indian Mutiny, it’s made from Cornish-grown Maris Otter pale barley malt and three North American hop varieties: Willamette, Cascade and Chinook.

It’s a bright golden with a soft foamy white head and a resiny fruit salad, rose and honey aroma. The palate is crisp and fruity, its light malt laced with strawberrry, pineapple and lime, tangy on the tongue and with flinty background flavours and peppery hops emerging.  A soft swallow leads to a strawberry finish with grainy malt underlying the emergence of big chewy hops that never quite overpower the beer.
