The cap cracks off and the salmon dyed drink sips with more dilution than it should. Saccharinity is genial but muted, leaving the namesake flavors with little energy as they slide across your tongue. Water is the forerunner of the experience, leaving strawberry to muscle out kiwi as about the only thing you taste. The fruits lack complexity, without even any tartness or other produce nuance to keep ounces interesting. Not all is lost however, as as gulps are gulped some sweetness builds and tickles the back of your throat, stained of the weak Chinese gooseberry taste and gives things some much pined intricacy. I found melon and lime in the original version of this Hydrive, but my palate begs to differ here. Either they have been removed or my mouth's talent is ebbing with age. You be the judge of that, but as the judge of this beverage, I say skip it.
Energy from this near sixteen ounce drink is decent, lasting three hours like all of its competition. Each bottle contains taurine, B vitamins, ginseng, guarana, and 160 milligrams of caffeine. Overall, Hydrive Kiwi Strawberry is the worst offering from the company. It is not bad however, and as the brand's lowest that certainly tells you something.
