COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

12 oz bottle from EZ. Pours a red/amber with a huge frothy off white head. Aroma and flavor seem more like an amber than an IPA. Notes of metal, peanut shells, caramel, toffee, dry toast, green veggies. Fuller bodied almost chewy with soft to average carbonation. This is an IPA, really??

cpetrone84 (1372) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 9, 2011
Pours a copperish orange color with a fairly tight light tan head. A fair bit of lace, a few large bubbles on top. The nose has some nice dough note with a fair bit of citrus hop, orange peel, with light herbal note. The flavor is a bit more doughy and biscuity, the orange citrus and peel are very strong in the finish and linger with an assertive and balanced hop finish. The body is medium and decent carbonation, creamy feel and soft finish.

murphym45 (769) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 9, 2011
Bottle. Pours dark brown with a thin tan head that laces. Very strong aroma with lots of malt and hops. Notes of caramel, grains, earthy hops, and some hints of citrus. Not quite as full bodied as I expected giving the aroma. Some sweet malt up front, lively carbonation, and surprisingly light bodied, almost refreshing. More hops come out on the finish with hints of pine and grass and a moderate bitterness.

phaleslu (6411) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 11, 2011
12 oz. bottle shared by Seed22- thanks, Blake! Pours a clear orange-amber color with a finger-thick white head. Aroma of dry cereal, sweet and pale malts, floral hops, and light orange citrus. Flavor of pale malts, sugary cereal, straw, grassy hops, and faint citrus peel. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a dry, grainy mouthfeel. Decent.

Sammy (8582) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 7, 2011
Passable IPA. Some bitter flavour, but in fact low on bitterness. Faint hop aromas. Simcoe, citrus. Highly carbonated. I wouldn’t have this again. A bit amber with a lasting quarter inch of foamy white ehad.Ken’s fresh bottle.

This was the only IPA in the deli, so I tried it. It was OK, but not great. A decent taste but I would not drink this again by choice.

GMUcrew7 (576) - Mason, Ohio, USA - APR 10, 2011
Dark amber pour with a nice white head. Aroma is pretty faint, caramel and biscuit malt with a little floral hops. The hops are a little more noticeable in the taste, especially at the finish. Medium body, a decent IPA but nothing special.
