In this beer blog, we are going to get into brews from Blackrocks Brewery in the next few blog posts. This is the first time that this brewery and their beers will be feature on this blog, We are going to get into their flagship brew, which is 51K IPA. Blackrocks Brewery was founded by David Manson and Andy Langlois in the upper part of Michigan. This brewery just like other breweries was founded on a hobby and a dream. Let us get into this IPA.
It has a cloudy golden color with a white constant color head. The aroma has a heavy citrus notes. The taste has a mild bitter citrus notes with a slight dry hop bitter aftertaste. It is a pretty drinkable beer.
Here is a description from their website (www.blackrocksbrewery.com):
Bursting hops all over your face, our American IPA is full of earthy grapefruit, apricot, and piney hop flavors and aromas with a nice balanced yet dry finish.
Style: American IPA

Closing, I have been wanting to try the brews from this Michigan craft brewery. I always try the brew at least once if I never had it. This brew and all the beers from this brewery is on my list. I am a huge hophead so this beer was no brainer to pick up right away. It was the first one that I put in my mix six pack. I will say it was the first one that I cracked opened. I love cans and they have nice packaging. This is a good IPA. I have to say it is pretty average brew. I have had better IPA’s, however, this IPA is in a can so I will pick up when I go to beach or on a boat. I recommend this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
