Appearance - Pours clear golden color with thick sticky white head that leaves spotty lacing all around the glass.

Aroma - Some light lemon, hops, citrus peel, caramel and a touch of sweet malt and pine.

Taste - Just follows the nose perfectly, very well balanced pine, grapefruit. malt followed up with some bitter citrus peel that carries through. Very easy drinking no sign of any alcohol.

Feel - Medium bodied well carbonated, pretty mild dry finish after the initial punch of the bitterness up front.

Overall - A really well done IPA, well balanced, easy drinking.

Pour: 12oz can poured into a pint glass. Golden yellow/orange color. Nice 1-2 finger foam head. Held some clouds and a little lacing.

Nose: pine, citrus

Taste: mellow pine, banana, orange and mango. Moderate hop bitterness with some citrus pepper in the middle to backend.

Mouthfeel: fairly viscous with slight creaminess. A bit like a NEIPA without the haze.

Overall: first time I’ve had this but have been eying it for a while. Really liked it. Might be my second favorite IPA to two hearted. Probably need a few more to confirm that.

Came in a standard pint a slightly hazed orange infused lighter golden with a half finger white head atop that lasted for quite awhile.A nice mix of tropical fruits and sharpness from the hosp in the nose.Flavors of tropical fruits and a bit of sweet onion over top of a caramel/biscuit malt base,gets slightly sweet toward the finish of the pint.A solid IPA from the U.P.

Beautiful slightly hazy burnished gold yellow brew, topped with a nice 1 1/2 finger flat white head with decent retention and lacing.

Very juicy nose: orange, grapefruit, and pineapple, with slightly sharp and peppery herbal notes along for the ride. Some caramel sneaks through in the aroma, which you might not have guessed from the color alone.

Flavor leans toward a more neutral bitterness, with grassy, slightly herbal hop notes, along with some pepper, pine, lemon, grapefruit, melon, and pineapple. Surprisingly a nicely balanced and bitter IPA. Pale and caramel grains, favoring the former.

Lively, active, dry; very drinkable. Bitter citrus peel aftertaste.

Go to U. P. IPA. love this beer! Golden in color. Floral, hoppy aroma. Citrusy lush hops. IPA goodness from God's Country.

Blackrocks' 51K IPA is a staple for local students up here in the Marquette - Houghton area because it's a really good beer. It has a nice citrus aroma, and fuller mouth feel than you might expect. It has a really solid dry finish that doesn't get old. I could drink four or five of these before I get bored.
