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 Roth’s. Very deep amber in color. Sweet bready nose with a touch of hops. Breadiness up front with a bit of malt. Decent amount of hoppiness. Some English qualities. More earthy than anything.

"after the greatness that was the ba doppelbock, this was a letdown. average beer at best, far below average double ipa, especially from the Pacific NW. Maybe old, but again, no date. muddled malts and some hop bitterness in the flavor, but little aroma to speak of. another meh. Better second time "

maxwelldeux (4351) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - APR 13, 2014
Bottle. Pours a very slightly hazy amber color with a moderate off-white head on it. Nose is fairly hoppy, and has a lot of grass notes to it. Taste is only slightly bitter, and has a subtle residual sweetness to it. Very drinkable and approchable for an IPA.

Split bomber imported from Portland with sherm1016...pours a foggy orange...may have gotten some bottom yeast into my glass which changes taste slighty. Resin / citrus / pine in the nose. Sweeter taste with malt influence. Bitter finish....good / tasty.

harrymel (1551) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 19, 2013
No bottle date A: Pours a nice orange ale with under a single finger of creamy foam which falls to a sheet of the same. Nice rope lace. Excellent clarity. S: Pine, resin, citrus, black olive (?), some nice sweetness as well. T: Sweeter than I anticipated. Bitter with some nice resin style hops and some citrus flavors. Above avg, but not by much. M: Medium bodied with decent carb and a semi dry finish. O: Not a bad beer at all, but not something I would spend much time seeking out. From notes verbatim on 10/27/10 A: Semi-murky copper ale with low/no head. S: Pine, oranges, grapefruits. Floral tones in here as well. T: Lower bitterness than I had anticipated. Tons of hops, tons of flavors. Yum! Resiny at the end. M: Lower carbonation and higher body then I expected. D: Great beer at the price point ($4). Serving type: bottle 09-26-2011

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.

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.
