Blackrocks Flying Hippo is the brewery’s first bottled beer — an Imperial Belgian IPA that rings in at 9% ABV. Flying Hippo is rather easy-drinking, not having the sharp bitterness that you might experience with other IPAs. Its crisp citrus flavors and Belgian yeast make this brew very enjoyable, offsetting some of the hop qualities.
