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.

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.

Slipstream (2240) - 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 (3128) - 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 (235) - 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 (1061) - Dover, Delaware, 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.

Voodoo (448) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 24, 2015
Pours a hazy copper color with a thin white head which disappears quickly.....aroma of sweet bread......taste is heavy bread, pine, plum, finishing with mellow bitterness. Tastes as if all the residual sugars didn’t get fermented leaving it with a heavy mouthfeel of a much larger brew.

BiddleBrau (1031) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 15, 2015
Tap at Lucky well. Amber thin head. Caramel nose. Green hop flavor, a bit astringent, some malt. A bit cloying.

Mep3222 (889) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - DEC 7, 2014
Bready malty aroma. Has a roasted malt aroma and flavor. There seems to be a residual yeast feel and a slight malt extract feel. Bitter finish. Ops balance well but a bit to bitter in the finish. Feels heavy but not that thick of a palate. Drinkable descent ipa, but nothing special. Prefer other keegan stuff much more. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

boxofrane (2446) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 6, 2014
Draft. Pours clear copper with a small white head. The aroma has little to discuss. The taste has caramel and light bitterness.

probstblueribbon (3324) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 7, 2014
Sample at Syracuse Beer Fest. Hazy copper with a thin tan rim. Berry-like fruitiness, sticky sweet malt, a bit of resin, a little peppery, a bit of grapefruit, a bit vegetal, messy. Worse in flavour, very vegetal, oddly sweet, not good.

mkel07 (4343) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - AUG 9, 2014
Bottle from Beer Culture New York September 2014. Good without being great. Hoppy but not overdone, well balanced.
