Rip It Tribute Active Mandarin Live Wild Lime Energy Drink Review

For three years, the latest releases from Rip It have been just out of my caffeinated grasp; any local dollar store only carries the original few varieties. But a long away gas station has brought me one of their militant flavors, Tribute. Its design is a refreshing break from the usual look of the brand, with an interesting camouflage pattern and black chevrons.

The aroma is very Mtn Dew-esque; its flavor is less inspired, with a more potent mandarin taste and tarter tartness. The lime is unfortunately not much of a player, but instead acts as depth to the dominant orange citrus, along with a touch of pineapple and mango- giving the potable a more tropical feel than its can suggests. However the shining light here is the beverage's sourness and its sweetness, from high fructose corn syrup and sucralose; its a tangy, almost Sweet-Tart brand candy experience. Sips become cloying as the can nears complete completion, a lamentable blemish on a drink otherwise too fun for one.

Each can contains: B vitamins, vitamin C, taurine, inositol, and guarana. The kick is a good one, no if, ands, or buts, lasting a cool three hours with a potent kickoff and old school crash. In the end, Rip It Tribute is a revivifying return to form for the long-running brand.
