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.

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.

[24/12/15] Bottle from Happy Valley Supermarket in Portland, OR: Copper body with medium head. Nose is hoppy for sure. Taste also hops up front, some citrus and then tapers off. Decent.

willisread (2552) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 27, 2016
Bottle from Mitsuya Liquors. Pours a deep copper with a finger of head. Loads of caramel and orange in the nose, but the malt really takes over as it warms. I get malt candy (gobstoppers) all over the nose. Almost like a malt shake. Some light cardboard and light funkiness in the background (slight brett issue I assume). Probably not in the best condition honestly. Malty finish. Meh.

DocLock (9999) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 23, 2016
Shared at Craft. Hazy copper pour with off-white head. Nose was caramel malt, resiny hops. Tasted rich, hoppy, with more resin and some fruity notes late.

This was poured into a becher pint glass. The appearance was a slight hazy burnt orange to off sort of brown color. Slim fingerís white foamy head starts and dissipates at a nice pace. Messy lace occurs as the head dissipates. The smell starts off with a sly citrus hoppiness. Subtle pine notes glide into a sweet malt base. Somewhat dry, with a sticky hoppiness coming in. The flavor takes in all of the previously mentioned flavors sliding together sweetly. Bitterness shows a sly "oomph" slyly and riding on into the finish (kinda sticky). On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body. Fair sessionability to it. Sly carbonation. Overall, very nicely done AIPA, I could see myself coming back to this.

mrjez (479) - Osaka, JAPAN - FEB 16, 2016
Shared growler. Pours a deep coppery-amber, nice aromas of fruitiness and pine, a touch a malt sweetness. The malt is more pronounced in the flavour, giving this a decent body, a little spicy kick, biscuity mixed with dank pine. Very enjoyable.

Bottle from Berts Growler Garage. Label lists as Imperial, ABV says IPA...good catch, moderators. Pours out nice dark copper with soft, airy head. Astringent hops rule the aroma, and taste too. Body seems on the light side, finishes fairly abruptly also. Seems like it could have been a bit bigger with a touch of something else, but what?

C-Note bottle from World Beer Market served in a pint glass. It pours a deep amber with a nice spicy malt and fruity hop aroma. Medium-full bodied with a smooth mouthfeel. The taste is well balanced bitter fruits and biscuity malts. A spot on IPA.

Bottle from Fred Meyer, Portland / Hollywood District
Being also sold at Walmart shouldnít be a good sign... Beautiful bright amber color, red copper, with medium sized head. The enthusiasm for this beer, given by name and appearance, quickly deflates; itís a very ordinary beer, almost more Pale Ale or Amber Ale than India, with dryish mouthfeel, simple caramel profile, strong bitterness, and serious lack of hop quality.
Clean beer, just not exciting.
