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

Bomber from Albertsons. Pours a mostly clear dark reddish copper color with a small white head. A light caramel and fruity nose. The flavor is bitter, green, fruity, light caramel. Pretty mellow really. Malty balance but defined by green raw hops. OK.

January 2012. On tap in Portland, OR. Orange amber color with an offwhite head. Loads of hoppy aromas with pine and citrus flavors. Excellent balance and complexity. Dry hoppy finish

In short: A caramelized resinous IPA, nourishing not refreshing. Good beer.
How: Bottle 22oz, consumed fresh a week or two after purchase.
The look: Mostly clear golden copper body topped by a medium off-white head.
In long: The hoppy nose is mostly hops resin with underlying floral-citrusy notes and caramelized malts. Taste starts with a big chewy caramelized malts backbone creating a strong crème caramel sensation. This is well balanced by resinous floral-citrusy hops. Bitterness is round and sticky, no sharp grapefruits or citric character here. Full body with a fluffy-chewy texture and plenty of soft bubbles. This is a nourishing IPA, if you’re looking for a refreshing beer this is not one for you. I personally prefer my IPAs more refreshing and drier but this is nonetheless a well-made nourishing IPA. And I’m sure glad I have ratebeer to enter my beer ratings, I started adding my beer ratings on the “other site” and it didn’t take long before they closed down my account, I can’t believe if, fuck LinkedIn.

A friend sent a 22 oz bottle from SoCal. Poured in a St Bernardus chalice...modest head and some lace. Aroma of citrus hops and herbal spice. Flavors of citrus hops, white pepper, funky tropical fruit rind, grapefruit rind. Overall bold in the hops but some astringency and unpleasant funky notes take away from this amalgamation of "C" hops.

Draught at The New Old Lompoc 5th Quadrant. Big hop monster! Full-bodied. But not excessively malty. Yes!

jkwood04 (4830) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 11, 2013
22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours amber with a light beige head. Aroma of citrusy and floral hops, and some pale and caramel malts. Flavor about the same, with not enough malts to balance the hops. Average texture. I with this was a little hoppier and had more caramel maltiness to offset the pale malts.

Nice alcohol content, but the flavor is slightly offensive. I would not try it again, but I am interested in what else Lompoc has to offer.

Caramel brown in color... Aroma is light citrus hops... Notes of caramel malts initially which gives rise to a pronounced citrus hop bitterness on the palate... Solid ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Orange pour with a light tan head. Aroma is citrus bomb. Grapefruit, orange, lemon, a little pine. Flavor is similar. Not very bitter but a big citrus note. Good.
