Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.50%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
This brew is a coppery and heavily hopped India Pale Ale. Named after brewmaster Keegan’s grandmother whose driving earned her quite a reputation with local police 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 driver’s record.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has an amber/orange color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of caramel malts, citrus. Taste is the same, caramel malts up front, citrus at he finish, moderate bitterness. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall, a bit malty for the style, but an enjoyable beer nonetheless.

A 330ml bottle picked up from New Beer Distributors in NYC. Pours a hazy copper brown colour with a beige head. Aromas of caramel, bread, citrus & malt. Tastes is heavy on the bread, as well as caramel, pine, plum, citrus & sweet malt, finishing with a mellow bitterness. Overall very unlike any other IPA I've had, but still very enjoyable.
