Base Tropical Storm Energy Drink

This is the last of my Base energy drinks that I found in Montreal. As I said in previous posts, I have not seen these energy drinks sold in Ontario or in any of the border states to the south.


As expected, "tropical storm" is another name for citrus. The liquid is toxic green in color and its aroma is heavy on the lime. The flavor? Same thing - it is almost entirely made of lime, except for the finish where you get a very nice lemon burst that lingers well into the aftertaste. Though there are 50 grams of sugar, there is no noticeable sweetness and the only thing that builds up is the sourness. Overall, pretty refreshing, but damn it is sour. Yeah - lemon/lime....it ain't like a Mountain Dew.


With 160 mg of caffeine in the can, this Base energy drink is the same as all the other ones...soo, since I am so lazy and the effects are all the same, I will recycle some old text from another review.

the effects become apparent quickly thanks to all the sugar. I was awake and a little jittery within 5-10 minutes. In another 15-20 minutes, the jitters died down and I was fully wired.

Cost - 2 for $4
Taste - 7.9/10
Energy - 8.2/10

Overall - 16.1/20...very sour and refreshing with a decent kick
