Review for Amp Energy--Traction


160 mg/16 oz. can


I actually can’t think of anywhere that doesn’t carry Amp Energy—Traction.  In the end, it seems that there is no difference in commonality between Amp Energy drinks that have not been discontinued (Tradin' Paint and Relaunch).


Amp looks good with purple—even better than it does with the original green, in my opinion.  Then again, what doesn’t look better in purple?  It just seems to have a way of making things look snazzy, as evidenced by the can here.


At first, the drink had a taste that was bitter and medicinal—more so than most energy drinks, and enough to make me worry that I was about to down the carbonated equivalent of a 16-oz can of Triaminic.  This quality did not last beyond the first few sips, and the rest of the drink was very pleasantly grapey—nowhere near as sugary and artificial-tasting as most grape sodas.


The kick is about average when compared to every other energy drink out there, above average when compared with others of the Amp Energy line.


The kick is acceptably long-lasting, above average for the Amp Energy line and marginally above average compared to just about everything else.  It tapers off quite smoothly, with no crash after all is said and done.


By and large, I haven’t been especially impressed with the Amp Energy line—it seems that, for the most part, they either taste pretty good but don’t kick much (Amp Energy), taste bad but have an acceptable kick (Amp Energy—Overdrive), or don’t do very well at either (Amp Energy—Elevate).  Amp Energy—Traction is the best in the Amp Energy line—it tastes good and packs a decent punch.  My advice: iff you’ve got to go Amp, go with Amp Energy—Traction.
