3.29/5  rDev -5.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Poured into a perfect pint.

4.0 A: Lightly hazed deep yellow color. Two fingers of frothy white head. Retention is good and a healthy ring of lacing is left.

3.25 S: Earthy hop aroma and a light neutral maltiness. Some yeastiness as well. Overall, not too complex or potent, but it still smells good.

3.25 T: Moderate bitterness and earthy hop flavor. Mild to moderate yeastiness and a mild neutral maltiness.

3.25 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. A touch of creaminess and refreshing.

3.25 D: It's okay, but nothing special.

Serving type: bottle

3.51/5  rDev +1.2%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12-ounce bottle into a pint-sized mason jar with a handle.

Color is appealing enough; sort of a deep gold/light amber. Carbonation is active and fizzy, the head bubbles down to a coating within a minute or two. Thin lacing, kind of spotty.
I wasn't too fond of the sediment at the bottom...it was visible in the unopened bottle and also at the bottom of my glass. Subtract a "visual appeal" point for that.

I thought the smell was quite nice, although muted. Fresh and hoppy citrus, with light caramel malts. Just a hint of pine, and some earthy grass. Great aroma overall, just not very potent.

The taste of Hobnobber is right on par with the aroma, although a bit more pronounced. Tangy, citrusy hop flavor; reminded me immediately of grapefruit juice. Malt flavor is there, but it's kind of secondary. Also got some flavor of damp hay/grass, and a (very) little bit of yeast.
Smooth mouthfeel, combined with the fairly active carbonation, give Hobnobber a nice crispness.

Overall, a pretty good session/adjunct IPA. I'd buy it again...but not if I could get my hands on Founders All-Day instead.

3.78/5  rDev +8.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy goldenstraw with an impressive head that leaves a web of lace

Smell: Pilsner malts with a hint of grapefruit

Taste: A very clean, bready malt bill opens the flavor parade with the hops developing in the middle; while there is some grapefruit from the citra, it is not overly pronounced and fades a bit in the finish, which is rather dry

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Decent enough for a session IPA but I have had others whose hop profile I prefer to this
