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.

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.

Mep3222 (582) - 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

Draft. Pours clear copper with a small white head. The aroma has little to discuss. The taste has caramel and light bitterness.

probstblueribbon (3072) - 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.

Bottle from Beer Culture New York September 2014. Good without being great. Hoppy but not overdone, well balanced.

JaBier (5011) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JUL 27, 2014
Bottle shared by a friend. Clear amber in color with a thick off-white head. Aroma of grainy malt and hop dankness. Malty and slightly caramelly flavor with a bitter finish. Guessing this bottle was kinda old.

generallee08 (717) - New York, USA - JUN 25, 2014
The body has a dark old coppery color with lighter amber highlights and a tall off white head. The head has good retention and makes lots of delicate lacing on the glass. There is a strong sweet caramel maltiness with firm citrus and mellow piney hop notes. It has a solid medium body with a sweet malty character off set buy citrusy hops on the finish. Its sweetness is caramel like and dominates most of the flavor profile till the finish where the hops pop out, bringing with them the bitterness of an IPA. This bitterness slowly fades of the tongue well into the aftertaste.

BLADT (653) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUN 17, 2014
Bottle pour. Great looking beer. Matt, ruby red with good sized head. Nose is tropical fruit at first, but quickly displaced with cider and sterile toasted malts. Taste continues the theme of pushing the hops to background. Lots of malt caramel malt characteristics. Earthy. A bit grainy, borderline watery, on palate. Eh.

decaturstevo (5215) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Orange pour with creamy white head and lace. Large resiny hops dominate the aroma. Caramel malt, resiny hops, and just a touch of fruity esters. Followed by a nice bitter finish. Medium bodied with good carbonation. nice beer just on the edge of wow

Dark reddish amber. Not what I was expecting. Dark dank ipa. Very malty with a bitter hippy edge.

jredmond (5673) - Manhattan, New York, USA - MAR 10, 2014
Draft at Pony Bar HK during the Hudson Valley NY tap takeover event. Not as horrible as the Super kitty imperial version, but still a very malt-focused ipa. Lots of caramel malt character dominating any semblance of hop profile there might have been. Some slick pine resin in the finish.
