Monster Nitrous Super Dry Energy Drive Review

I finally found the time to try the next newly arrived Monster - Super Dry. This one also has the fancy cap like the one on Anti Gravity.


At first I did not know what to expect in terms of flavour, but once I cracked it open, I realized that that this is very similar to the original Monster flavour. And by similar, I mean that it has been slightly modified, but one can still taste the original flavour but one can also taste the addition of lime and some cherries/berries. This is quite a unique twist, but it does improve the taste of the original. Half way through the can, the drink starts to leave some candy-like feel and aftertaste in your mouth, which the sweetness of it starts to build up. Being part of the Nitrous line-up, the mouth-feel is creamy.


Just like Anti Gravity, there are 163 mg of caffeine, which should get you going quite nicely. I started to feel the effects and wake up within 10-15 minutes and in another 15, I was feeling pretty damn good. The effects lasted for about 2.5-3 hours and once again, no crash at the end. Pretty solid energy drink.

  1. Pure amazing. If you are an energy drink fan, I highly recommend this drink. It's my favorite, and tastes nothing like original monster. I hate original monster, but I absolutely loved this drink!

    1. agree with anonynmous, I have never liked the original monster flavor, but as far as green drinks by monster I love the one in the little glass bottle (6or8oz i think) but this Super Dry taste like Surge, and that gets it some extra cool points.
