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.

Being also sold at Walmart shouldn’t 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; it’s 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.

harrisoni (15792) - 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.

Theydon_Bois (14315) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 19, 2012
Tap at Fifth Quadrant (NOL) - 07/11/12. Lightly hazed mid amber with a decent sized off white head. Good lacing ensues. Nose comprises pale malts, light floral notes, hops, touch of pine. Tastes piney, hoppy, light grapefruit, touch of minerals. Medium bodied with soft carbonation, smooth on the palate, bitter finish. Ok pale - would reccomend.

Oakes (13913) - 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.

bhensonb (12952) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 20, 2009
Bottle from Liquid Solutions. Pours reddish copper with a think tan head. So much citrus/floral hop that the roast malt is nearly hidden. Medium body with creamy carbonation. The flavor is lush hop. Floral, citrus, maybe a touch of resin, and there’s roast malt underneath. A slight hop burn in the finish. This is a really good one.
