Hurricane Kitty is a coppery and heavily hopped India Pale Ale. Named after brewmaster Keegan’s grandmother who’s driving earned her quite a reputation racing her six children to and from a local Long Island beach ferry during the 1960’s, Hurricane Kitty is the undisputed family favorite. We try to make the hop bill read as aggressively as her driving record.

Draught @ Albion. Slightly hazy dark orange with small creamy beige head, faint citrus aroma, low carbonation, balanced hoppy taste, somewhat thick body, medium bitter orange peel finish. Flavorful and balanced, a nice brew.

Lost the reason why they call this an IPA. Yes 10 years ago this was a hoppy beer, however in 2016 I believe they need to provide hoppier alternatives. this drinks more like a marten/ German bock. We want a hoppy American IPA!!

Hazy copper brown with beige head and lacing. Some pine notes on the nose. Sweet toasted malt with some bitter pine resin on the palate. An average IPA...

No too bad for an ipa, not too bitter, nice color but surprised with the sediment, nice caramel color

JFGrind (2006) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 18, 2015
Dark mahogany medium bodied IPA with generous malt and bitterness. Hop bitterness has a peppery spice to it. A throwback of an IPA.

MarkoR (950) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 14, 2015
355 ml bottle. Pours a dark copper colour with a small white head. Aroma is citrus, bread. Taste is same, plus caramel and some maple. Doesn’t really feel like an IPA...

Slipstream (2480) - USA - AUG 30, 2015
Draft at Bacchus. Pretty average IPA. Plenty of bitterness on the palate. A bit of vegetal, caramel, and tea flavor. Aroma is nothing special for an IPA.

alobar (3561) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 30, 2015
Pours a clear copper color with a creamy white head. Aroma of caramel, bread, and citrus. Thick body with caramel and bread flavor upfront with citrus and pine. Decent beer.

Slubgob (310) - West Hartford, USA - AUG 22, 2015
Bottle into glass, Mohonk tasting. Copper with bit if red, lingering creamy red head. Warm malt aroma with a touch of hops, reminiscent of a red ale. Warm malt in the mouth with an IPA hop hit, fairly piny and a bit sticky. Finishes with more pine and stick. A bit of a stylistic mashup.

hfmejias (1273) - Marshall, Minnesota, USA - JUL 4, 2015
12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured dark copper, clear, nice off white head. Aroma is mostly caramel malts, some citrus notes and some floral notes. Taste is also sweet and malty but with a nice balance from hops. Nice IPA, quite drinkable.
