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.

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!

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.

baraciisch (2909) - California, USA - JAN 26, 2013
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.

Tap at Fifth Quadrant (NOL) - 07/11/12. Lightly hazed mid amber with a decent sized off white head. Good lacing ensues. Nose comprises pale malts, light floral notes, hops, touch of pine. Tastes piney, hoppy, light grapefruit, touch of minerals. Medium bodied with soft carbonation, smooth on the palate, bitter finish. Ok pale - would reccomend.

Out of the bottle. Pours a darker copper color with a small white head. Smell is a little malty with a decent hop smell. Not overly hoppy taste as it is 100 IBU, but still enough for me. A malty nutty finish. This is a great beer.

Draft. Rich amber beer with a cream head. Light malt and light citrus aroma. Citrus and light pine flavor with light caramel. Medium bodied. Citrus and light pine lingers with light caramel and a light herbal note.
