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

3.33/5  rDev -4%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

- session ipa. best by 12/31/13. Consumed 09/18/13. Lot #359. 4% abv.

A: Pumpkin orange, good strong carbonation factor, some overcast clarity wise. The head is short lived, dirty ivory in color with a thin frothy covering.

S: Fresh grapefruit pulp, wet, juicy, hint of fresh lemon-orange mixture, with a sweet hint of caramel pine. Pretty good level of awareness.

T: Flavor was dry, pilsner grains, hint of straw, hopping is lightly dry, not as fresh or wet as on the nose. Pine, woodsy feel with some grapefruit straw, small toastedness and sweetness arrives in flashes along with some semi-dry orange peel.

M: Decent crispness, light body, grainy pilsner like mouthful, lightly rough, powdery pilsner coating on the tongue.

O: Overall for 4% has a good deal of hoppiness. The maltiness falls a bit victim here of low abv. Wish the citra hops were a bit more pronounced flavor wise, nose was good though. At end of day do you rate per style or as a session interpretation. Label says its a ipa, BA is calling it a pale ale? again dilemias.
