This beer is malty and sweet and wonderful, but with a bitterly hoppy finish that many (girls) may not care for. I am a big fan though. Thumbs up!

Hurricane Kitty poured a light head. Its appearance is amber and filtered. There was barely any smell, maybe a bit of citrus hops. The taste is average for an IPA, the most prominent flavor being hops finished with a sweet hoppy aftertaste.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Light cherry colour and a fairly murky body. Very fruity aroma profile, especially candied cherry, berryfruit and malt. Rich palate with creamy mouthfeel. Big fruit salad flavours intermingle with the perfect touch of bitterness. Very enjoyable.

A - Pours a bright slightly hazy copper-orange color with a finger of crisp looking slightly off-white head. The head has good retention and laces nicely on the side of the glass.
S - Aroma is full of hops aroma, a nice mix of pine and citrus hops. Some really nice grapefruit comes through. There is also some nice sweet caramel malts in the background for a bit of balance.
T - Starts off with some sweet toffee notes with some building citrus hops and some nice bitterness. Through the middle some of the grassy hops come through with some more bitterness. The finish is a mix of hop flavor and bitterness and some toffee malt sweetness that linger very nicely.
M - Medium bodied and a moderate amount of crisp carbonation. Very smooth and balanced mouthfeel. Feels crisp and refreshing. Nice fry finish with nice bitter elements.
D - Very drinkable. Nicely balanced flavors with a nice hop profile. Nice strong bitterness. Very refreshing and crisp beer.

Bottle. Pours an orangeish brown. Smells sweet, malty, caramel. Get a good hop bite, some piney-ness to it. All in all, just an average IPA.

Location: Sampled at the NY Brewfest on Governor’s Island, 6/19/10
Aroma: The nose is quite malty (caramel) with some orange, floral notes, and grapefruit
Appearance: The pour of this one is amber in color with a solid sized off-white head atop it
Flavor: Medium sweet (good amount of malt flavor) and light-medium bitter, fairly balanced stuff
Palate: The body is medium, it has a soft feel and a decent duration of dryness on the mouth
My first beer from Keegan, and at this point of the brewfest I wasn’t expecting to stumble on something this good, so I was pleasantly surprised by this one. Very solid stuff! I enjoyed this one.
