It’s almost the last week of end of quarter. It’s so much easier to get through when you can see that the end is near. Today, we only had 24 trucks on the road, which is really light for end of quarter. Anyways, let’s see how this beer is. It’s a dialed up version of Keegan Hurricane Kitty, which I reviewed a few years back.
Style: American Strong Ale
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Super Kitty is our single most requested seasonal brew that we make. It is essentially our traditional I.P.A. Hurricane Kitty, just on steroids. It is brewed with local honey cultivated on our premises as well local hops and finished off with aging it in a plethora of oak chips. When the finished product rolls out it is 12% alcohol by volume and it’s not always available, so make you stock up on it while you can.”
Random: It looks like it’s going to rain tonight. I’m hoping it doesn’t rain tomorrow because I’m going into the city.
This brew poured with a one finger white head that dissipated quickly and only left slight lacing on the glass. There was a crown left on top of the cloudy, dusky mahogany body. There was light carbonation visible. The nose was huge on this one. I got lots of oak and vanilla. There was some smoke and honey as well. On first sip, the booze on this was definitely present. I got oak and vanilla along with some smoke. There was some honey, but it did not impart a lot of sweetness. There was some caramel malt as well. I didn’t get a lot of bitterness on it, but there was some. The body was thick and chewy with moderate carbonation present. It had a long finish with booze warming and oak. I really enjoyed this beer and it made for a good sipper. If you see it, definitely grab one and give it a try.
