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.

reebtogi (5762) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 31, 2012
650ml bomber pours a pale amber color with a 2 finger white head that settles quite quickly and leaves only a few spots of lacing. Aroma is grapefruit, pine and other citrus with some earthy notes and caramel. Taste is a wonderful blend of hop bitterness with a decent balance from the caamel malty sweetness. A nicely balanced IPA that is quite tasty and deserved of a tasting.

Poured from a bottle. Not a big head; not a lot of carbonation. Aroma of hops, but taste is not as smooth as I expected. Too much hype around this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Portland, Or - John’s Market Place - 22 oz bomber. Dark copper pour - bubbly off-white head, light lacing. Fruity aroma, some ripening vegetable notes. Flavor has some, a bit of dull citrus bitterness, a hint of potting soil. Uneventful mouthfeel. Not my favorite on my trip to the PNW.

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 12, 2012
Draft at Chuck’s 85th Street Market in Seattle, WA. Pours a dark copper color with golden amber edges and a 1.5 finger off-white head that quickly settles into a thin ring. Sporadic spots of lace left behind. Earthy hop aroma with lots of floral, grassy pine countered by sweet malt. Floral but the hop character is a bit one dimensional and the malt presence is a bit stronger than I prefer. Hints of caramel, toffee and biscuit counter the resinous pine presence. Medium bodied with a blast of dry, sticky hops that dominate the flavor, lingering over the sweeter notes into a bone dry finish. Very earthy and bitter with lots of sticky pine needle and grass overpowering the palate. As it warms, a prominent sweet malt character comes forward with hints of toffee, caramel and bread. There’s also a bit of alcohol heat/sweetness toward the finish. Decently balanced but not very interesting. Not a bad beer but I probably wouldn’t order it again.

Fatehunter (2275) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JUL 13, 2012
Poured from a bomber into a tulip glass. Quite surprised at the color, light copper, lots of bubbles and no real head. Smell: Lemonade and grapefruit. Taste: Light hops, then bitter ending that stays on the tongue for only a little after. There is a little sweetness in there too. Curious, but nice. Light body, low carbonation, crisp. A solid, good beer. The darker color threw me off. It comes off more as an IPA, but without getting kicked in the teeth by the hops.

There is plenty of potential here, but this bottle was seriously undercarbonated. The flat mouthfeel doesn’t play well with the hippy character of this beer. It is full of hop character, but ultimately a disappointment.

Bottle shared by Beerkat. Sweet malt flavor, very fruity, with grape, cherry, and grassy hops. Some citrus in there as well. Alcohol evident. Ok.

Huge sticky hop nose. In the mouth it is MUCH lighter and well, tame. Solid drinking, but a thin body for 7%. Tropical fruit, pine, but nothing too outstanding. Enjoyable, but ultimately forgettable when comparing with what is available these days. Thanks Beerkat!.

sherm1016 (1272) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 5, 2012
22oz bottle from Belmont Station. Pours a dark amber color with an off white head and some lacing. Aroma is hoppy, pine and citrus, medium on the palate with average carbonation. Flavor is sweet, bready malt, pine hops, with a sharp, pine hop finish. Definitely hoppy. Past it’s prime though.

FoolishMortal (990) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 11, 2012
Dark red-orange with a small white head. Candied citrus and piney undertones in the aroma. Pineapple, mango, citrus, and a resinous pine hop flavor gestalt dominates with some bready malt bracing. Evergreen resin hop bitterness slightly lingers in the finish, with some sweetness. Mouthfeel is medium light, slightly dry.
