Be it Columbus or Tettnang, the Hobnobber never discriminates. This daring single hopped session ale keeps the same malt bill but changes the hop venue every time we brew it.

Bottle - from sampler pack. Note I don’t know if this is the hop variety - it said to go to their website, which doesn’t work right. It’s lot 278 if that helps. Anyway: Cloudy, light golden. Very hoppy aroma. Taste is also hoppy but mostly just the bitterness. Beer is weak and thin. Meh.

Bottle, thanks sevenhokie! Grassy, hoppy aroma with maybe a touch of earthiness. Pours light copper colored with a decent, white head. Taste is grassy and earthy to start. Finishes dry and very bitter. Started ok but the finish was a bit harsh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear golden amber with a mottled head cover and fireworks lace. Taste is dry malt with a citrus hop entering in the palate and growing through the finish. Taste reflects the low abv - it may be sessionable (as the info suggests), but it isn’t tasty enough to tempt me past the first one. Not recommended.

Draft. Pours a clear copper amber color with a medium sized head that quickly fades into a very thin sheet. Some patches of webbed lacing cling to the glass. Aroma has some nice hoppy notes with a bit of biscuit malt. Decent flavor for a lower ABV session ale but seems a little overcarbonated to be one. Still, not bad overall.

12 ounce bottle pours a dark golden yellow color with aromas of pine, citrus, and a decent caramel malt backbone. Flavors follow suit mostly caramel and pine flavors very light acetone aftertaste.

On hand pull at Fat Heads Pittsburgh. Pours a super murky orange with a thick white head. Aroma of bitter, pot-like, grassy and garlicky hops. Flavor is very garlicky and super bitter in the finish. I definitely wouldn’t guess this was 4% because it is quite full bodied and super hoppy. Great stuff! 8/4/8/4/15 (3.9/5)

The aroma is sweet with caramel but dominated by pine and citrus hops. The appearnace is amber with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma with a bitter finish. The palate is smooth. Overall a great beer with a special bread like quality.

Draft to pint. Looks solid; a hazy orange with thin white lacing. Smells decent; golly with a sweet malt backbone. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. A nice session beer, and a good example of the style.

Cask (unlabeled version, presumably this one). Small beige head, hazy amber body. Aroma is moderately sweet forward orange/grapefruit. Taste is moderately sweet, grapefruit, some orange. Medium body, light resin.
