Monster Punch (DUB Edition) Review

monster-dub-edition
Monster DUB Energy Drink first launched back in 2009, but has since added a couple of additional flavors. Recently, Monster rebranded DUB to simply Punch.

Current Monster Punch (formerly DUB) Flavors

  • Ballers Blend
  • Mad Dog

Monster has teamed up with DUB magazine to create a drink marketed to the custom car enthusiast.

So did the #2  leader in energy drinks outdo themselves with their recent creation of a custom energy drink?

Taste

Not in a long time have I been so excited to get my taste buds on a  new drink, yet Monster Dub got me there.  So I took the can, popped off the plastic rim, and pressed my lips to the can.  I slowly poured the contents down my throat, and then began a roller coaster of flavor.  As the icy cold liquid hit my mouth, I tasted grape,(ok not bad, another grape drink), yet as it slid past each taste bud I caught a hint of the original Monster, especially in the aftertaste.  Many different feelings and tastes within one can, not sure how they do it, but I enjoyed it!

DUB Ingredients

As with most energy drink, you get your normal ingredients, yet Monster Dub amped up with an extra helping to get you through the day, and night, and probably the following day as well if your a lightweight.  4000 mg of taurine, 800 mg Guarana and a healthy dose of B vitamins. Same Caffeine as Traditional Monster.

Effect

To be honest, the Monster drink line doesn’t give me the boost I’m looking for, (maybe just becoming immune) and was slightly disappointed in the boost from DUB.  Don’t get me wrong, It had a little energy buzz, yet only lasted about an hour or 2.  Nothing to get excited about.

Verdict

In my eyes Monster DUB fits right in line with the rest of the family of Monster drinks.  The Taste was there and pleasing, yet the kick was lackluster.  So if you’re a fan of the other Monster drinks, then you will be pleased with DUB, but if Monster isn’t your thing, then save your cash and gamble on another drink.

If you want to try Monster DUB you better act fast because it’s not listed on Monster’s new website so it most likely won’t be around for long. Maybe buy two cans one to drink and one to sell 10 years from now on ebay.
