Really not that bad for a super cheap malt liquor. Sweet and grainy with a corn finish. Not much alcohol taste at all.

Not totally disgusting, but not enjoyable, either. OK lawnmower beer when just about anything will do. Nothing worth noting.

If youíre low on cash, and want to tie one on, HHG is ideal. A 24oz can costs less than a 20oz Pepsi, and the ABV percentage will definately have you inebriated by the fourth one. The downside is that compared to Sam Adams, Gritty McDuff, and other high-end brews out there, youíre sacrificing flavor, drinkability, enjoyment, and possibly your dignity by getiing drunk on it. Slightly better than Steel Reserve, My recommendation is: Drink this only if the beer budget is tight, otherwise have one or two for a primer, then move on to a more palatable brew (and after HHG, most beers will taste much better by comparison)

Pretty bad, but Iíve had worse, lots of corn, dark gold color, little head. Alcohol bite isnít as bad as expected, but thatís not saying much, not enjoyable.

Proof that Hell is real...and that I can clean engines with beer. The lowest of the low...ideal for homeless shitheads.

Pours a clear gold color, topped by an inch and a half of sudsy white foam. Decent head retention, a little bit of lacing. Sweetish aroma like some kind of artificial candy. Not pleasant. The taste is also sweet, though not artificial like the aroma. Instead it is more flowery or even perfumy. There is a little bit of hops in the finish, then more of that same sweetness in the aftertaste. Not a great flavor, but not gross or cloying either. Not quite medium body, too lightly carbonated.

In the past six months my friends and I have been purchasing and imbibing Hurricane High Gravity as its alcohol to dollar ratio is high. Even cheaper than steel reserve (not adorned with the respective capital letters (seeing as how itís a proper noun (because it is really distasteful))), Hurricane provides a tolerable drunk, if drank correctly. Within this span of time my dormitory roommate drank Hurricane like water and found himself in some intolerable situations. Peeing is the friend of the drunkard, until he/she encounters the bold drunkenness of Hurricane. Friends closets, peopleís beds and bedroom floors, corners of the room were all peed in and on with the assistance of Hurricane High Gravity Lager. I have come up with a theory as to the effects of Hurricane on a manís mind. I hypothesize there is a portal to hell beneath each batch of Hurricane that is produced that in turn makes the drinkers do very devious things. Drinker beware, Hurricane provides a bold drunk!

UPDATED: JUN 25, 2011 Ruff tuff stuff. I have a situation that is high gravity, one that is grave Ė I am very thirsty! Half pound can dressed in black with bold bright lettering. So, you ask, did he really not drink this before? Should I be ashamed to say I did enjoy this before? Is there anyone in the US that never tasted this before? This is not a ticker, it is an actual rating as I enjoy it. Wanted some rate beer experience first. Pours like strong ale in my steeler stein. Initially it is very fizzy and the carbonation fades to no lacing or even bubbles. Color of a dark yellow / light brown appearance, did they add some caramel fruit coloring? Not much aroma but what exists is a hint of sweetness. The aroma is no hint of what lurks within the flavor. The initial flavor is an aimless alcohol impact. The background flavor is of a typical good quality pale yellow american beer, but that is the background. It is the alcohol of a barley wine, strong ale and dubbel. There is a bite in the back of my throat. I think the initial numbing of the flavor makes your taste buds accept it easier as you continue. Didnít I read that high gravity is good for some beer styles? After all, itís brewed for a distinctive bold taste? When slugged, there is some fizz on the back of the throat but for the most part this is pretty flat. Usually it is the finish that makes IPA and imp stouts unbearable, but with this brew the initial rough bitterness is hard and unbearable. After the initial onslaught, it may become acceptable. The pre-finish nearly insults my uvula. As far as the % alcohol goes, this is on par with some of the better high % beers, brown shugga and elephant! Dare I say the finish of Bells wheat love?
