Rockstar Hardcore Apple Energy Drink Review

Not going to let Monster have all the fun of releasing a fall variety, Rockstar's latest release is Hardcore Apple, easily the brand's best can in some time. Sure, it uses the traditional design we have seen time after time, but there is a good balance in its coloring, and its font for "hardcore" does meet the definition of "hardcore."

It seems every drink line comes down to making an "apple" flavor eventually, but Rockstar's attempt here is one of their more successful entries of recent memory. It is a completely generic taste of McIntosh and Granny Smith varieties, a super sweet cocktail who's extreme saccharinity overpowers the fluid's feeble acidity, much like a fresh apple would. There is zero juice here, but your tongue would be fooled if you eyes did not read that on the back of the can- things are so successfully apple that I almost felt like I needed to wash the can before drinking from it. Now, should any drink have sixty grams of sugar and 260 calories? Of course not, (non-caloric sweeteners acesulfame potassium and sucralose are even included to keep the count from ballooning any further) and although sixteen ounces is a lot for such a one-dimensional flavor, Rockstar is at their simplistic zenith here.

The buzz is pretty rocking, lasting almost four hours, of course, with all the jitters the aforementioned sugar can cause. Each can contains: taurine, B vitamins, inositol, milk thistle, ginseng, guarana, and 240 milligrams of caffeine.
