Taste- Well I don't give two shits about this! Because its just a poopy red bullshit clone with nothing notable.
Buzz- 1210 mgs taurine, glucuronolactone, caffeine, l-arginine, ginseng, tribulus terrestris, horny goat weed and maca root. alone with 100% rda B vitamins and 50% B3. I just wish that there was a company that would give a legit amount of some of those rare ingredients that you don't find in most drinks to where they would actually work good, because otherwise its just a waste and the drink just looks good but doesn't work as good. But I understand company's don't want to put all that money into drinks for those expensive ingredients when people would appreciate or realize they're in there, and would rather keep the price down and get more sales. I just wish it was the other way, I would rather pay a buck more. Tribulus terrestris is a new one. It has long been a constituent in tonics in Indian ayurveda practice, and used as an aphrodisiac. And like I say most of the time, this gets points for good ingredients but not enough of them.

Taste- A rough shitty "green" flavor that has no real flavor properties. It tastes cheap and its probably because it is. But I mean if you like sugary drinks I'm sure you will enjoy this somewhat, but for people who really care about what they're drinking wont like this. The name definitely does fit it.
Buzz- 381 mgs taurine. 39.9 mgs caffeine. 24 mgs inositol. 29 mgs glucuronolactone. 5.9 mgs sucralose. 0.97 mgs vitamin B2 9.9 mgs B6 4.5 mgs B5 2.36 mgs B3 and 12 mgs B12. Thats the most random set of numbers for a drink Ive ever seen. I wonder what the point of that is. We can finally see what they put in these and its not enough.

Taste- Guys, sometimes this is really hard. Describing a taste isnt as simple as you think, but I would say I still do a pretty good job at it. This one just taste like an energy drink pure and simple. But I cant say it tastes like monster, rockstar or red bull. Fuck if anything it might taste like all three combined. Its tart but not too much, its got a little of that sweet apple taste and its kind of heavy at the same time. Its sweetened with organic dried cane syrup which tells you this is a quality drink. Maybe thats what they were going for, a combination of all three because they could decide which to mimic. But it worked, I like it.
Buzz- This gave me one of those rushes where you can tell it wasnt only shitty caffeine kicking in. It was a nice real, powerful boost and might last you they rest of the day (if you arnt prone to energy drinks like me) 25 mgs l-glutamine, l-caritine, inositol and ginseng. 600 mgs glucuronolactone. 200 mgs gaurana (NICE!) 80 mgs caffeine. 1000 mgs taurine and 100% of all your b vitamins. Major points for the high amount of gaurana which is a natural form of caffeine that is twice as powerful as it!

Taste- This company is always changing their formula and now its something completely new. Blueberry. Its a candy like blue berry taste with that awesome cotton candy type taste. Good and sugary, perfect in a candy store. I have no complaints on it.
Buzz- 50% rda vitamin B3, B12, B6 and 25% B2.1000 mgs taurine. 120 mgs caffeine. 50 mgs inositol and 25 mgs gaurana and ginseng.

Taste- Your typical sugar free energy drink that's trying to be healthy. Its made with green tea for antioxodents and chatechins and you can taste it. It has that "steaz, celcious, starbucks refreshers" type taste to it while trying to pull of a berry flavor. Its nothing like the original sadly which was pure neon "bad for you tasting" energy drink deliciousness.
Buzz- This makes up for all the disappointment here. I was impressed with so many ingredients you don't see often enough in energy drinks. 1000 mgs taurine. 150 mgs l-arginine. 200 mgs l-carnitine. 100 mgs l-lysine and caffeine. 80 mgs green tea polyphenois. 60 mgs green tea catchins. 50 mgs yerba mate and 20 mgs grape polyphenois along with your daily dose of all 4 B vitamins of course. The polyphenois and catechins are great but you could probably get more if you actually drank green tea or had some grapes. The other ingredients are given the correct amount of to give you a quality energy run which would be great for actually using like in sports or fitness.

Taste- They sure did it. Its light and refreshing. Not thirst refreshing exactly but its pretty much like an absolute zero that actually tastes good and isn't so harsh which are the two reasons that drink blew. If I had to describe it perfect I would say its monsters closest drink to a pure sprite style citrus. But not exactly lemon lime, more of a different fruit tastes exactly like honey dew melon. Its nothing spectacular but its just what they wanted and I'm down with the idea.
Buzz- Just like some of their other drinks that say "we did this and that but still gave it a full load of the monster energy blend" they didn't but they said it again. This time they gave it the least amount of energy ingredients Ive ever seen in a monster drink. I'm assuming because they cant mask over the bad taste of all those ingredients with a strong flavor, which totally makes sense. 1,400 mgs taurine, ginseng, l-carnitine,glucuronolactone, inositol, gaurana and maltidextrin. 20 mgs vitamin B3. 10 mgs vitamin B5. 2 mgs B6 and 6 B12. What surprises me here is there is more ginseng and carnitine than caffeine. I dont think Ive ever seen that in an energy drink. But since this drink is still new I cant find out how much caffeine is in it, but it would be good to know.

Taste- I remember the original that I had got here a couple years ago and it was my favorite one. This one is pretty similar except for the fact that it has an old factory taste along with it. I had mine over ice which made it a lot better. I recommend that for any sugar free drink, drink it over ice and it wont be as bad.
Buzz- I don't have the can with me but I remember what it was. Just your average amount of the four B vitamins.

Taste- The first sip and I was disappointed, because I knew exactly what it was. Citrus x mixed with limewreckor. It has the foggy color and kind of filmy mouth feel with a taste that seems like it has poison in it like citrus x (which is very gross to me and that's why I don't ever buy that one) and the lime from limewreckor. Its not a bad combo but I hate when company's like mountain dew get lazy and instead of creating a new flavor they just mix two old ones. Mountain dew has been doing it with all their drinks since the 2nd dewmocracy and now they end up with dark berry which tastes 95% like voltage. Its cool if a person cant tell, and most of you wouldn't but I guess I'm just that good with my palette.
Buzz- Same rip it blend but they're putting a little bit more vitamin C and B12 but still keeping the ginseng out. A lot of company's are doing this now Ive noticed because you really need a high amount of B12 to do anything and the only drink that really has enough to work is wired B12 rush. 1010 mgs taurine. 100 mgs caffeine and inositol. 3 mgs gaurana. 70 mgs vitamin C. 2 mgs B2. 400 mgs folic acid and 10 mgs B12.

Taste- An average grape drink, I'm getting more adjusted to grape energy drinks. Its taken about 4 years but I'm starting to like them. All of these killer buzz drinks kind of have a similar trait, its a certain taste and mouth feel I don't know how to describe. Light maybe, so you could say this is a light grape flavor that will still satisfy your sweet tooth.
Buzz- Caffeine, taurine and a blend of 17 amino acids that they call the giant hornet amino acid. Used in ancient china it is said to give you the energy of a ragging hornet. Too bad there is no information on what those 17 but we know it comes from the larva secretion from the Asian giant hornet and its also what thdy live off of by regurgitating it and eating it. If you didn't know, that's what honey is; pollen that bees puke up. If you want to talk about a unique energy drink. You have it here
