look: 1.75 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 1 | overall: 1.75

Appearance:
Hurricane pours a radiant oompa-loompa orange with all the bubbles of a fizzy lifting drink. I think there's a little bit of corn stuck to the side of my glass. Head fades quickly with lacing reminiscent of a Taiwanese prostitute.

Smell:
Smells like sour apples, charred oak, and freedom. It is quite hard to pay attention to the tasting while everyone else is watching midget porn on the other couch.

Taste:
Hurricane tastes like America- From the mountains to the valleys to the broceans white with beer foam. Mild soapiness develops into sweet corn malt with a hint Fruity Pebbles on the back end. The flavor coats the mouth not unlike cough syrup - in that I will probably be tasting it when I wake up tomorrow morning. There are no hops of which to speak of, they're probably just being overpowered by awesome.

Mouthfeel:
Pretty light on the tongue, but also slippery like two babies who are KY wrestling. This could also be due to the high number of times that I have pretentiously swirled my tasting glass around. Would like to have had more carbonation, but one malt liquor can't have EVERYTHING? right? can it? guys?

Overall:
Wind up flashlight? check. Matches? check. Toilet paper? check. Now all you need it some way drown your sorrows due to the fact that college students and the federal government got the day off, and you just finished swimming home from the office. Look no farther than Hurricane Premium Malt Beverage. No screaming endorsements here, but it gets the job done, and isn't that what life is all about?
