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.

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 (8022) - 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.

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.
