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.

Hazy amber color out of the bottle with a thin fizzy off white head. Floral hop nose with some citrus notes. There is some caramel sweetness but mostly just raw hop pellet bitterness. Lots of hop resin with some stale fruit and dusty grapefruit rind in the finish. Not as well balanced as I like.

HighlanderOne (1084) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - MAR 25, 2013
Poured from bottle. Aroma of hops, malt and brownies. Amber, lacing tan head. Citrus and grassy hops dominate, creamy malt in back. Slightly metallic aftertaste. Nut, caramel and raisin notes. Not outstanding, but pretty good.

budznsudz (581) - Audubon, New Jersey, USA - OCT 28, 2012
Drank from the bottle. Aroma is fruity with a touch of malt. The taste is basically the same, not a bad ipa. Unremarkable but satisfying nonetheless.

Drake (10888) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - SEP 21, 2012
12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods Market Darien, CT. Pours a clear amber color with a medium sized fizzy tan head. Fair head retention. Aroma of caramel and toffee with herbal, minty hops and a bit of melon. The taste is caramel malts, floral hops, and a bit of toastiness. Mildly lingering bitterness, medium bodied. Decent.

Pours amber with a dissipating white head and toasty aroma of caramel and hops. Taste is toasty, of hops, floral notes, caramel, and malt with a bitter finish. Solid IPA

Strykzone (5817) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 16, 2012
12 oz. bottle. Clear honey golden with a big off white head that has good retention. A nice aroma of pine and caramel. A bit of breadiness. There are pine and citrus flavors with some herbal notes. Caramel adds sweetness. Some bready yeast is tasted. There is a dry bitterness. This is different.

kaser (4341) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 15, 2012
Weird. Pours red and thin head. Yet a thick beer. Bitter and malty taste. Seems kinda strong. Not very good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dogbrick (9824) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 22, 2012
Clear copper-amber pour with a medium white head that dissipates quickly to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, earthy malt and fruit. Medium body with flavors of herbal hops, malt and a bit of grapefruit. The finish is moderately bitter with a hoppy aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.
