Ammo Energy Shot - Red Punch Review:
Another first for the new year. That's right the Ammo Energy Shot from Bevolution Brands will be the first energy shot this year (2008). I believe the Ammo energy shot is also the smallest shot I have ever reviewed weighing it at only one ounce. According to the website this shot was developed by and for the military and was recently released and perfected for public use. This little one ounce shot comes in 3 distinct flavors; Red Punch, Blu Razz and Citrus Ice. Today I will be reviewing the Red Punch flavor. So enough background fluff for now, let's see if the Ammo Energy Shot delivers a solid kick.

Ammo Energy Shot - Red Punch Review: Taste
Being the smallest energy shot I have ever tried, I was a little worried about the taste as I have had largest energy shots that just taste horrible. However, I was pretty lucky with the Red Punch Ammo. The fruit punch flavor was noticeable, albeit slightly strong. You could also taste a slight hint of medicinal aftertaste. However, Ammo is by far one of the better tasting energy shots on the market. I was amazed at how well this shot tasted, especially considering the amount of caffeine in it (caffeine usually has quite a bitter taste). Besides, the ever so slight bitter taste quickly vanishes; after all it is only one ounce and I kind of felt like a chump sipping it when it is meant to be slammed. But hey, I had to put a finger on the taste for you guys. Taste Rating - 8.8
editTurns out you can either slam it or mix it in to your favorite drink to up the kick! It's up to you.
Ammo Energy Shot - Red Punch Review: Kick
The taste and size is great. But what I really liked is the fact that they tell you exactly what kind of energy you are going to get right on the bottle. That's right, there is 171 milligrams of caffeine in this little one ounce bugger making it a pretty powerful concentrate. There is also a cool little measurement scale on the side that allows you to figure out precisely how much caffeine you are consuming based on how much you drink. So if you want to drink 80 milligrams of caffeine, consume to that line. I love it, it's so simple yet ingenious. So how does this shot compare to other full size energy drinks? Well the Monster's and Rockstars all have various levels of caffeine, but most hover around 160-200 milligrams (16 ounces). So it is very comparable, yet way more compact. Kick Rating - 9.0
Ammo Energy Shot - Red Punch Review: Final Judgment
If you are into energy shots, then I recommend giving this one a try. I wasn't disapointed and you shouldn't be either. And if you are not into shots, it looks like you can just mix this in with 16 ounces of water or any other beverage. I just got straight to the point and took it as a shot and the Ammo Red Punch got straight to the point and delivered the energy I needed. I think I will add this one to my arsenal for use in the gym or bring it along next time I go backcountry backpacking. After at it is only one ounce! Final Judgment - 9.0
