BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Keegan Ales
New York, United States
keeganales.com

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.

It looked a lot better than it tasted. Malt bomb.

Reddish cast. Richly variegated, light-beige head, which recedes fairly quickly, leaving handsome lacing. Subtle buttery aroma that surprisingly hints at toffee and caramel. Clean vegetable taste, with a strong aftertaste redolent of turnip or onion; piny, slightly citrus volatility lurks. Rich feel. A mature flavor that lets you know it's beer.
