Rage Asylum Energy Drink Review:
Last August I tried my first Rage Energy Drink and I have to say that I was very pleased with both the taste and kick out comes so I thought I would try another one of these Canadian Energy Drinks to see if they could duplicate the success. There are 5 16 ounce flavors available from Rage including: Asylum (which I am reviewing today), Ripped (low carb / sugar free), X-Rage, Y-Rage and THAI Rage. So let's see if they can go two for two in the taste and kick categories... onto the review.
Energy Drink Review: Taste
I assumed with the orange can that I would be getting a orange citrus style taste...and what do you know I was correct. So exactly how was the orange flavor? Well the orange flavor was a tad sweet in my book, but then again I am not a huge fan of sweet citrus flavors, so that does add a bias to this taste review. However, I would like to say that the large list of medicinal energy ingredients did not come into play in the taste factor... they blended in seamlessly. To sum up, your typical orange soda in a can, but of course with extra kick. Taste Rating 8.3
Rage Asylum Energy Drink Review: Kick
So the taste was Ok, but it was nothing unique. Same holds true for the kick, at least when compared to the Ripped Rage that I reviewed last month as the energy ingredients seem to be the same. The complete energy ingredient list includes 160 milligrams of caffeine, 400 milligrams of Guarana (delivering 40 more milligrams of caffeine), 2000 milligrams of Taurine, 400 milligrams of Ginseng, 50 milligrams of Creatine and a nice amount of B-Vitamins. I couldn't tell a difference at all between the kick of this one and the last one I reviewed even though the last one was sugar free / low calorie. They don't list the calories at all on this can, but it is artificially sweetened with sucralose, so I am guessing that it has a lower calorie count from the lack of sugar. The lack of sugar also meant no crash! Kick Rating - 8.8
Rage Asylum Energy Drink Review: Final Judgment
Good kick, good can design and a decent taste. I stated above that I am not a huge fan of sweet citrus orange drinks, but it you are you should definitely enjoy this one... I mean it's pretty much an orange soda on steroids. Where can you get them... It is available in the US at stores like, Hi-Health, Fast Mart, Royal Farms and Shore stop and it retails for $2.59. Final Judgment - 8.5
Stay tuned for the review of the other 3 flavors!
