Rage Inferno Energy Drink Review

Rage Inferno Energy Drink is an iconic energy drink that comes in a fire extinguisher shaped bottle.

Here we review both the original and grapefruit flavor of Rage Inferno.

Rage Inferno

When you first lay your eyes upon Rage Inferno you are guaranteed to automatically utter praise. The large 24 oz bottle is the perfect plastic rendition of a fire extinguisher. It catches the eye to say the least.

My adventure with this fiery beverage began in the late afternoon. I was very tired at the time, and ready for some blazing energy. Would Rage Inferno Energy Drink light my fire? Will I discontinue the fire related puns after this paragraph? Keep reading to find out.

Taste

After the somewhat awkward opening of the Rage inferno cap, if you can even call it a cap, I was greeted with the delicious scent of cherry. For some reason I had a half-assumption that it would take a burning cinnamon approach like the infamous Cocaine. Luckily, I was wrong. The first sip yielded a deep, full cherry burst. Strong, mildly tangy, and no hint of bitterness or sourness. Rage Inferno has the ideal amount of carbonation. All in all the flavor was absolutely marvelous and the large 24 oz bottle didn’t last too long.

Rage Inferno Ingredients

Nothing makes me smile more than the actual caffeine amount given on an energy drink. Rage Inferno boasts 375mg of the good stuff. It also contains 3000 mg of Taurine, 300 mg of D-Glucuronolactone, 30 mg of Vitamin B3, 6 mg of Vitamin B6, and 18 mcg of Vitamin B12. I call this list “solid” and I also must extend my gratitude for listing the caffeine amount. I’d hug your company if I could!

Effect

BOOM! Rage Inferno did just the trick. I went from hazy late afternoon blues to bug eyed and ready to conquer the world. It was even a bit hard to sleep that night.

Verdict

I have simply ONE problem with Rage Inferno. When I would set the bottle of Rage on my desk, there was a bump on the bottom that would make it tip and lean a lot. This made me think that it would be best to hold onto this beverage if you were in a car. Other than that this is a quality energy drink with creative and original packaging.

Walking down the street with a Rage Inferno Energy Drink in your clutches would definitely garner some intrigued looks. If you see this hot mama in a store, snatch it up before someone else does.

Rage Inferno contains 3 servings or 375mg of caffeine per bottle! It is not recommended for minors or those sensitive to caffeine.

Rage Inferno Grapefruit

The first time I reviewed Rage Inferno it was in a bright red fire extinguisher bottle that blew my mind as well as my taste buds. Upon the opening of my most recent package, I find a yellow Rage Inferno Grapefruit version.

The first thing I am thinking is of course “But I’ve never seen a yellow fire extinguisher, this doesn’t make as much sense”. There is also no other indication that it is a different flavor or version, besides the blatantly obvious color difference on the bottle itself.

Either way I know Rage Inferno packs a hefty wallop, so I open it up with much vigor and excitement. However, I am wondering what could have possibly been changed. Soon I shall find out what the new Rage Inferno Grapefruit Energy Drink has in store.

Taste

As usual I pop the seal and take a whiff of what I am about to “chug-a-lug”. This new Rage Inferno is all lemon baby, which is strange because I thought it was supposed to be grapefruit? Slightly uneasy (since I usually have some bad run-in’s with lemon energy drinks), I brandish the bottle and take a deep swig. To my disdain the first sip yields a taste very closely related to harshly sweetened rubbing alcohol or some sort of cleaning product, yet somehow it is enjoyable and deep.

Rage Inferno Grapefruit is the same “deepness” found in the cherry flavor of the original Rage Inferno. It’s an acquired taste, but it is very well done for a lemon tasting, grapefruit beverage.

Rage Inferno Grapefruit Ingredients

Oh yes indeed, this stuff packs a punch. With the caffeine content clocking in at a mighty 375mg, you are guaranteed some “umph” and some extra to boot. The other notables include 3000mg of Taurine, 300mg of D-Glucuronolactone, 30mg of Vitamin B3, 6mg of Vitamin B6, and 18mcg of Vitamin B12.

Effect

Superb, as expected. Rage Inferno Grapefruit hit me like a ton of bricks, but in a good energy kick-in-the-pants way. So you could essentially say I was kicked in the pants with a ton of bricks. Whatever metaphor you choose, Rage Inferno Grapefruit has the get-up-and-go goods, no doubt about it.

Verdict

Even though I don’t fully understand the reasoning behind making a yellow, lemon/grapefruit flavored version of this particular beverage (I thought the first Rage Inferno was fine as a stand alone product), I still enjoyed it. Albeit the taste was somewhat lacking and a bit abrasive, the boost simply cannot be beat.

I have to recommend this to any hardcore lemon/citrus fan, because it would most likely be fairly pleasing to your palate. Lemon/citrus junkie or not though, Rage Inferno Grapefruit Energy Drink comes out swinging in the energy department, so pick one up regardless, especially if you have a long night ahead or something physically straining to pull through.
