COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

This was just a big badass beer, similar to a double version of the centennial, but I prefer the centennial to this. This was a hopheads dream, just does not have enough body and maltiness to make it as enjoyable as it could be, if it was pushed more into a strong ale type category. Great bitter hop bite in and out of every single swallow, great rounded finish.

UPDATED: MAR 27, 2006 Draught pint at Redbones on 12/3/05. Very cloudy, deep rufous-mahogany with a ruddy-tan hue on the edges and a very well-retained off-white head that sits at half a finger throughout the whole glass. Lacing is complete and perfect down the glass in rings. Aroma shows dry, soily, lightly citric and floral hops with toasted malt and light toffee. Black pepper and very fresh, yet dry american ale yeast pour off the top. The flavor combines the fresh yeast (isnt yeast great?) with very dry toasted grains, light touches of orange rinds and mild cherries. Soily, earthy malt and touches of light toffee. Very unique hop profile provides, at times, oranges and vanilla, and at other times soily, damp earth, with brown tea leaves and light bitterness. Yeast works all the while and the creamy, unfiltered texture is soothing. While the malt sweetness is fairly minimal and only comes out on the end, after warming, the hop schedule, mouthfeel and yeast apparency really support the experience. No alcohol apparency.

On tap at New Old Lompoc. Kind of a clear orange/amber with an off-white head. Beautiful, grapefruit, peach and pine hop aroma. Brewed with Centennial, Crystal, Cascade, Cluster, Chinook and Columbus so you have an idea of what a fabulous grapefruit/pine/resinous hop orgy this is. BUT, there is plenty of sweet malt backing it up with some caramel in there. Pleasant sweetness, bitter hop finish. Full, round and creamy on the palate with moderate carbonation. Great lacing and head retenion. Really nice stuff.

A very good beer, even in this beer loverís region of the USA. C-note is fresh and hoppy, not too heavy in body or malt. Iím not sure I would call it a hop headís dream, but I certainly would buy it again and again.

Tap at PIB brewfest. Orange/amber colored. A touch hazy. Hop aroma all over this thing. Citrus, floral. Malt tries to accomodate, but just canít keep up. Decent, a bit one sided, but pleasant nonetheless.

3fourths (8455) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 22, 2005
A big IPA. Slightly murky orange and brown. Very well balanced. Toasty red ale malts, cherry and sweet malt sugars. Smells similar to Avery Maharaja, with some smooth, almost chewy tinny malts, and some orange and wheat flavor. Very nice.

Iíve had this a few times in the past, but at the Sasquatch Brew Festival this thing was like no other sample iíve had, just perfect. Very floral hops throughout, massive citrus/pine aroma, just very fresh smelling. Flavor was just juicy liquid hops throughout, kinda tasted randalized or just massivley dryhopped.

On tap at the pub. Deep orange color, with a thin white head. Herbal, hoppy, fruity aroma. Grapefruit, and a generious amount of hop bitterness for flavor. Dry, juicy finish. On the menu list they claim this is a double IPA. If I were to rate it as a double, it would lack the malt backbone and strength needed to rate well. But as an IPA itís pretty satisfying.
