NX Lean and Mean I am excited about my second experience of Nitrous Express. Let's start our engines and get to the review.
The Look: Once again NX Hot Fuel comes at us in a beautiful 24oz bottle. Instead of the black we get a white bottle with a strong amount of red graphics covering the bottle. I like this bottle even more than the black one, this thing looks sick. The white is slightly transparent on the bottle so you can vaguely see the liquid inside which adds for a really cool effect. On top of the bottle we get the same lug nut cap as the others but this time it is done in red to represent the fruit punch flavor. On the back there is nutritional information as well as a short passage about NX Energy Drinks. The only reason you wouldn't want to show off this wicked bottle is because the liquid inside looks even cooler (we will get to that in a bit).

Taste: The taste is labeled as fruit punch on NX Hot Fuel so I figured the drink would be red but I was wrong. The best way I can describe the color of this drink is Pepto Bismol pink(seriously if I put a shot of Pepto and a shot of this side by side, you can't tell them apart). So after seeing the color I was a little skeptical of this drink. After taking my first sip my skepticism was put aside. This drink taste like a slightly tart, carbonated fruit punch. NX really puts some time into the flavors of these drinks and has shown us that quercetin infused drinks can taste good. There is no caffeine bitterness or vitamin aftertaste in this drink.

Does It Work: NX Hot Fuel is powered by 240mg of caffeine, 300 calories, 75g of sugar, 750mg of quercetin, over 1200% vitamin C, 105mg of potassium, and even a bit of B vitamins. As you can see, not only is there a bunch of liquid inside this 24 ouncer but there is also quite a bit of "goodies". After drinking on this through out the morning, I was overcome with a very nice alertness that is above average. I would put the buzz at around the 5 hour (because of the amount of liquid) mark with no crash. I think with the added sugar I got a slight better pick me up than the Lean and Mean.

Overall Thoughts: Once again NX brought a drink to the table that is great. I have had a few energy drinks that were fruit punch flavored and this is one of the better drinks. NX Hot Fuel should appeal to the targeted audience as well as energy drink enthusiasts. You can check them out on the web at: NX Energy. I recommend NX Hot Fuel to anyone that likes energy drinks. If for no other reason, you need to buy a NX Energy drinks just so you can see the color of the liquid (yeah it is that cool).
