While my rating may seem high, remember that this is malt liquor. People drink malt liquor for two reasons: it's cheap and it gets you ripped. I don't really know of any malt liquor that is truly a pleasant drink, but given price, ABV, and smoothness, Hurricane is the best malt liquor available IMO. you can still get a 40oz for under $3 in many places, and because of this, if you're looking for a cheap buzz, you can afford an extra to pour out for your homies.

Picked up a six pack of Hurricanes last night for myself and some friends. Taste is a lot like Bud, just a bit stronger. The metal can doesn't really help it, but I've had 40s as well, and they've tasted pretty similarly. The biggest negative of it is that it picks up the taste of the can towards the bottom.

Mouthfeel is okay, as is smell. The appearance is what you'd expect, not tremendous, but not bad either.
