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. CanIHave4Beers (4207) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - APR 1, 2013
Very golden, with a nice looking big fluffy white head. CapFlu (5129) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 27, 2014
The aroma is doughy with some banana stuff happening... banana bread-like... The aroma has some alcohol and a touch of corn.
The flavor is actually fairly smooth... It’s got the alcohol and the sweet corniness, but the grape drink is really subdued and nothing (at least at this temperature) is horridly offensive. Again with the mild bananas.
Strong corn nose. Some light white frothy head and a clear deep golden body. Flavour is smooth, full creamed corn and slight hefe. Oddly not bad. Better than many malt liquors of this class. crossovert (13724) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 20, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2016 25 oz can, inbev is giving us an extra ounce over competitors. Clear gold in color. Really a non-offensive high gravity alt liquor so credit them for that, this still sucks balls though. re-review 710ml can. This is an unoffensive HG, dry for its style too, if you wanna get fucked up and not swill your way though a 211 or colt hg this is what you grab.

Original review: 9/10/10. Can poured into a pilsner glass. Pours a deep dark gold with a thick white head on top. Good sticky lace left behind. Scents of cheap husk, dry grains, and lemon. The body is pretty full for the style and brewer. Pretty crisp as well. Flavors of heavy grains, corn, honey, light booze. Bitterness is low. This wasn’t all that bad. Pretty good beer for campfires, tailgates, cookouts, etc. When cheap beer is in need, it’s Hurricane indeed.

local score. Trifecta for the evening. Yellow, booze, 8%. Everything is in check. Corn, grape drank, butterscotch, can, high gravity. Yep. I’d swear this is natty daddy. Shanebrews (294) - Virginia, USA - APR 22, 2013
This has some malt to it. I find it induces excellent sleep. I have difficulty with my memory when I drink a couple of tall-boys of Hurricane HG. Not a bad flavor. Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - NOV 14, 2005
24 oz. can. Dark honey body with a lasting foamy head. Nose-cinamon, dust, green apples. Tatse-green apple jolly rancher, sweet cherry, alot of fruity esters, corn syrup. Not too bad for a malt loquor. Not overly corny. But, it is so sweet and full of apple flavors that it tastes very similar to hard apple candy ChainGangGuy (4919) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - FEB 13, 2008
Appearance: Glugs out a clear, orange-gold body with a thin, white head.
Smell: Seriously, why do I continue to subject myself to these things? Aroma of toasted, microwaved corn-based cereal and floral-scented chemicals.
Taste: Heated corn flavor with an odd sweetness. I’m not sure why I always refer to it as an "odd" sweetness, when the vast majority of these malt liquors has it. Let’s start saying "off-putting sweetness," whaddya say? A needed hint of hop bitterness almost shows up, but is taste-blocked by a wave of chemical flavor. Ah well.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Moderate carbonation. Mercifully, it’s not as nauseatingly tongue-coating as most malt liquors.
Drinkability: It’s just barely tolerable, I think that’s the nicest thing to be said of it. Paired well enough with a handful of salted pretzels. hellbilly (3247) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - JUL 3, 2008
poured this into a glass to see what color it was and to get some aromas... after that it went straight into a funnel. clear gold with a small quickly dissipating white head. aroma of candy caramels, grassy hops and laundry detergent-like floral qualities (not that it’s a bad thing). tastes sweet...like lemon grass, grass, caramel and distinctly of cantaloupe. medium body is a bit acidic and prickly from the carbonation. not a particularly good ML...
