Inked Thunderbird Lemonade Energy Drink Review

Here is the second new Inked - Thunderbird. I snatched this along with the new Chikara during 7-11's promotional deal of 2 for $4.


The label says this drink tastes like lemonade and it does. I was half expecting it to be non-carbonated and very similar to Rockstar's Recovery, but unfortunately it wasn't, it was very carbonated. The lemon taste is well done, except it is not as sour as I would have liked it, and it tastes a lot more like sweet lemon candy than a nice sour lemon drop. The candy-like taste is more prominent in the aftertaste, builds up with each sip and lingers for a while.

On a hot summer morning, or afternoon, this Inked energy drink is fairly refreshing and would be the one I probably pick over all the other Inked flavours.


The can contains 150 mg of caffeine, which is the Inked standard quantity. Like all the other Inked drinks, the effects of this one are apparent within minutes due to its sugar content. Jitters also come in within minutes and last for a while. The real caffeine kick does not come in for another 20-30 minutes, but when it does it lasts for about 2 - 2.5 hours and ends with a noticeable crash.

Cost - 2 for $4
Taste - 8/10
Energy - 7.5/10

Overall - 15.5/20...refreshing candy-like lemonade taste with a decent kick and a sugary crash
