To call C-Note very hoppy would be an understatement. Itís brewed with the seven "C" hops (Crystal, Cluster, Cascade, Chinook, Centennial, Columbus and Challenger) and pushes the bitterness limit to 100 International Bitterness Units.

Medium orange color. Small head. Aroma is fruity and sweet. A medium bodied imperial pale ale. Malts are fruity and sweet. Hops are fairly aggressive, grapefruity, piney and bitter. The hop bitterness really comes across at the finish. Touches of orange and citrus. A little watery and thin. Mouthfeel is a touch thin. Finish is crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 8, 2004
Tap@New Old Lompoc. Pretty good stuff, pretty hoppy, as you’d expect. Pretty sweet hops at first, lychee. Piney. Pretty much your usual USIPA, pretty decent balance, quite rich and sweet.

Gold bronze color, lots of white head & lacing. Lots of nice balanced malts & hops. Flavor is refreshing with a perfect level of IBUs to combat the sweetness.

UPDATED: MAY 7, 2012 Draft at brewery: Iím guessing that this is the "Centennial IPA," as it read on the menu. Deep amber, mostly clear and big-bubbled head. Very light carbonation (cask-like). Texture was on the light side. Malts were toasty and slightly sweet. Bitterness slowly built on the tongue, but never became heavy. Nice alcohol nips here and there. Nice and sweet hop aromas/flavors throughout. Questioning the hundred IBUs, especially against such light malts. At any rate, it was still a pretty tasty IPA. RERATE 22-oz bottle 2012: Lots of rock candy sweetness in the malts, which I didnít notice before. Still canít believe the 100 IBUs, even if theyíre hidden behind the malts. Hop presence, in general, is subdued and the bitterness is only mild to moderate, at most. Itís a decent beer; thereís just no way hops were isomerized to 100 IBUs. 50, maybe. Just my opinion, and Iím only making a point of it because the 100 IBU thing is glaringly odd.

A dark golden hue with a white frothy head. The aroma is of grapefruit and herb like in cannibus, pot, happy weed. The flavor is bitter and grassy with some grapefruit.

Excellent beer. A bit dark for an IPA, but I have seen other IPA like that. Hops leak through the whole beer. However, unlike other overhopped offerings (Rogue Brutal Bitter, Mash House IPA) this one has a truly wonderful blend of hops. I can actually taste the malt, and I don't feel that I have to soak my tongue in saltwater just to be able to taste again. Nice smooth flavor.
