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.

Tap at their 23rd location... this one poured a hazy red/orange tone with a thin white head, nice lacing. Typical IPA aroma and most typical IPA flavors like strong hops, pine and herbs, and a caramel undertone. This one specially reminds me of Pyramidís Thunderhead IPA. Even though itís nothing unique for me, itís still a solid rendition of the style that deserves a good rating.

Love this beer. On draught at the New Old Lompoc. I liked it so much i wanted to fly a 5 gal. keg wiht me back to GA! At any rate thick and hazy, it sports a persistent head laced wiht the amber copper color of the brew. Sweet but balanced wiht wondoerful west coast hops. only in Portland can you find so much goodness in such a modest looking bar. Wonderful.

Very dark amber with minimal head. Smells of sharp hops and tastes of a hop explosion. Extremely smooth mouthfeel goes with a very pungent aftertaste. This one is a winner for the hop blast!

harrisoni (17282) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 6, 2006
On tap at New/Old Lompoc on NW 23rd Avenue, Portland. Hazy copper colour, lasting off white head. Sweet sherbert hop aroma. Rose petal fruit in mouth. Malt is ok. But is then overtaken by this huge mix of sherberty sweet hop. Not astringent nor overly bitter, but just extreme sherbert. Some grapefruit. Finish starts as beer begins. Just way too hoppy. Nice rose petal and grapefruit though.

Amber color nothing attention getting. Centennial, Crystal, Cluster, Chinook, Cascade, and Columbus hops; this is a hopheads dream.. very nice bitter finish.

OldMrCrow (2404) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 5, 2006
On tap at Uber Tavern in Seattle.

Pours amber with a modest white head and nice lacing. Great big c-hop aroma, some citrus but also floral and woody and absolutely delightful. The flavor is a lovely hop showcase, with a marvellous leafy flavor unadulterated by the sort of sweet malt-and-resin that creeps into so many otherwise delightful IPAs. Good mouthfeel, crisp, no alcohol burn, appropriately full for the style.

Iím extremely impressed here. Wonderful beer.

Oakes (15651) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 5, 2006
Cloudy amber. Woody, grapefruity, leafy aroma. Moderate bitterness. Lots of toasty, caramelly malts and chewy, woody hops. Not bad, but a bit too much crystal malt for my liking.

DrunkenWeasel (224) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 22, 2006
Pours medium amber with a medium white head. Smells hoppy, floral with some grapefruit, has a small malt smell too. The taste is the same as the smell. Aftertaste is too watery with some nice hop kick.

DYCSoccer17 (3629) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 16, 2006
8 ounce sample at the brewpub. Nice piney, mildly hempy aroma with mild malty sweetness present in the nose. Color is a mildly hazy garnet-twinged copper color with a small, fleeting white head. A bit of roasty maltiness to start, followed by hempy, dry, extremely bitter grapefruity hoppiness. This is hop tea that is extremely dry. Palate bludgeoning. No balance.

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.
