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.
