Hurricane Kitty is a coppery and heavily hopped India Pale Ale. Named after brewmaster Keeganís grandmother whoís driving earned her quite a reputation racing her six children to and from a local Long Island beach ferry during the 1960ís, Hurricane Kitty is the undisputed family favorite. We try to make the hop bill read as aggressively as her driving record.

12oz bottle from Half Time. Pours hazy copper with off-white head. Aromas of hops, oranges, and sweet caramel malts. Flavors of sweet caramel malts, some pine, light citrus, and fair amount of hops. Tastes somewhat fresh. Good amount of sweet malts for an IPA. Decent.

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.

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 didnít get fermented leaving it with a heavy mouthfeel of a much larger brew.

Tap at Lucky well. Amber thin head. Caramel nose. Green hop flavor, a bit astringent, some malt. A bit cloying.

Mep3222 (887) - 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

probstblueribbon (3323) - 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.

JaBier (5616) - 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.

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.
