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.

Deep opaque brown with an inch of off-white head (way darker than your average IPA). Aroma is piney and resinous with some oxidized malts. Taste is off with some english yeast and lots of water. Not sure what to make of this overall. $2

This ipa pours a crystal clear copper color with a frothy pale tan head. The taste is clean, slightly bitter with a touch of hop resin a few drinks into the beer. The carbonation begins light then sparkles the tongue with lively little bubbles. Definately a beer to try.

jercraigs (8276) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 2, 2011
2011-10-02. Hazy orange amber, small off-white head. 3+ Mild aroma, green leafy hops and mild toasty caramel malt, muted citrus. 6+ Flavour has a pleasant mild bitterness throughout, modest green leafy hops, modest resin, malt profile suggests that it might be showing some slight oxidation. Average plus bodied palate. Enjoyable but just okay. Bottle from Premier Gourmet, Buffalo

Better than my first offering from Keegans which was the Milk Stout. This one had a very inviting red amber pour with a creamy lacing head that capped the beer through out. The aroma is nicely hoppy with pine above a malt backbone. The flavor follows the aroma in reverse. The malt is sweet up front followed by a nice dry hop finish.

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 (1600) - 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.
