3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Intense orange-gold with a way-cool label. Buttery, fruity, hoppy aroma. Fruity and medium-hopped. Smooth, mouthy palate, and the hops hang around.

Pleasantly surprised - reminds me of a Sam Adams. Fresh, hoppy and spicy aroma. Deep dark orange pour with a good solid head that dissipates pretty quickly. Flavor is good balance of malts and hop. Finished strong - excellent mouthfeel. Best of Hurricane thus far - two more to go.

Fairly hoppy nose. The label says that the style is a pilsener, but this kind of hop presence is not something I associate with pilseners. Golden colored--slightly darker than gold. Grapefruit in aroma. Hoppy flavor, tastes a lot like Sam Adams. Crisp finish. Overall pretty good.

Interesting nose of bready malts and spice, maybe hops. fairly good taste. body was helthy and tasted pretty cereal like. clean finish. the aroma is probably the best part.

OK. Very light toasty and sweet maltiness and some mild spicy hoppiness. Not bad, just not worth searching for.

2.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A pleasing middle-of-the-road lager, marred only by some sort of plasticky phenolic note on the aroma; kind of like drinking Staropramen near a brand-new shower curtain. Loses all its aroma points for that... If I have a chance to try it again, I’ll see if I got a bad one, because it showed potential.

One of the better of this very medocre brewer. Has a hoppy nose and bettter than BMC mouth feel.

Nothing special. The first beer that I can remember being brewed in Miami when I lived there. I looked forward to its appearance but was mildly disappointed with the end result.

Without the hurricane reef label i would have said florida you’ve got style, cause this tasted like a can of old style, only it was in a bottle, which makes me wonder where the metalic taste came from. Strange, very strange indeed.
