2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Transfer from BA review on 3-18-12 -
Poured from 40 oz. bottle into pint glass
Appearance – A medium golden color with a slightly off white head upon pouring. The head faded fast and gave way to the light film and very little lacing.
Smell – Some corn and a bit of malty bread. Both lighter and mild.
Taste – The taste is mainly bready with a bit of biscuit and corn. A bit of sweetness is present initially then fades a bit toward the middle of the taste only to come back more at the end of the taste. With the sweetness that comes at the end, a alcohol flavor also comes in giving a little bit of “burn” aftertaste. While the sweetness is there throughout, it is not as sweet as many malt liquors out there and dryer in flavor.
Mouthfeel – Very light for an 8.1 % abv beer. The body is more like a standard 5% lager; light with a higher level of carbonation.
Overall – What can I say, kind of a standard malt liquor in flavor only a bit lighter in sweetness and body. It is very easy to drink due to its lighter qualities (sweetness body), although that may not be a good thing due to its heavier qualities (abv.)

40oz bottle in our appartment in Maui, picked up from some liqour store in Laihana - whilst maximising tick options, 24/04/14.
Clear golden with a well appointed white head - a decent looking beer.
Nose is bubblegum, light banana skin, toffee, toasted notes, on the of the better smelling ML’s for sure!
Taste comprises grainy notes, sugar, faint caramel, wood chips, pretty bland.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close.
Meh-ish but as malt liquors go not too bad and certainly deserving of a higher average score than it holds. That said approx 36/37 oz of this product were of course recycled!

Pale gold appearance. Smells like vanila pudding and rice crispies. Corn, astringent, not had. Just very little flavor.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Thick feel, lively, fizzy, caramel, hay, cereal, chocolate, and other aroma’s that I can’t really pin point so the aroma is very interesting and unique but strong, can smell it in a large diameter when opened. Price is excellent but it’s hard to find at places in Slidell, LA . I know of only three places that carry it, and keep it in stock due to me being a regular and local. I really Love this beer, Way better than 211 witch I used to drink, but disliked many things about it. The reason for the overall rating is because of a hard time finding places that carry it and because of the very strong aroma. Try it, you will like it.!!! If your choice is " Bold and Strong / High Alcohol content, not sweet or bitter, and cheap (money wise) this beer is then awesome for you".

When you simply want the wife to shut up and the kids to drown out their fistfights in a blurry haze of Southern drawl, get a couple Hurricane High Gravity’s and slurr the night away. You’re not drinking this to add something to society, you’re pissed off and you’re gonna get what you want NO MATTER WHAT.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Tasted on 4/9/14 from a 25oz "Category 5" can purchased at a gas station in Florida. Pours completely clear bright orange with an average white head that slowly recedes to an average collar. The nose is sweet candy corn with a dusty touch and maybe even a hint of something green. The flavor is the same, sweet corn all the way through. The body is medium with almost fizzy, stinging carbonation, and a medium sweet corny finish.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
40oz clear glass bottle, thanks to caterwaul. Opened up at a party. Clear golden color. Thin white head. Leaves pretty decent lace, here... Smooth, crisp carbonation. Medium to bigger body. Kind of slick. Pretty drinkable, though, despite the taste. Light bite... Kind of bitter, light alcohol heat. Maybe I’m more buzzed now, but nowhere near as horrible as I remember regular hurricane ("hurlicane") as being. Way better than expected. Pretty smooth, with minimal bite. Some decent hoppiness to it, even. Grapefruit, lemon? Maybe this is a FAF example

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Can in Seattle. One extra ounce! Category 5! Be Bold / Be Smooth / Be Powerful. Sigh. Awful malt liquor all the way, more of a headache than even the strong euro lagers I’m used to. Sweet corn liquor, sour sugar water / grain tea. Clear plain corny gold.There is some ’hop’ (?) bite to it, but still awful.
