Kingofcaffeine.com there was an energy shot called .50 Cal Energy. The packaging has a very unique look and I am pretty happy to get the chance to review it.
The Look: I understand what Hard8 was going for with the packaging, unfortunately in their quest to make it look like a bullet something didn't work out right. The bottle itself is a 2.4 oz aluminum container that sports the words .50 Cal Energy on the front and has a graphic of a flag underneath it. I actually really like the aluminum bottle, I think it looks really nice. The problem for the container comes with the lid that is suppose to resemble the top of a bullet. I won't really go into detail but I don't believe this quite looks like a bullet. On the back there is nutritional information (with caffeine amount listed) and an ingredient list.

Taste: The flavor is labeled as Pomegranate Blueberry with the phrase Warrior Blend underneath. The shot has a great taste with no bitterness at all. I really enjoyed the flavor and wished it was made into a drink instead of just a shot.
(9 out of 10) Great Taste
Does It Work: .50 Cal Energy is one of the many products on the market that are starting to include an anti-oxidant blend (acai, goji berry, blueberry, grape seed extract, and pomegranate) along with an energy blend. Even though the anti-oxidant blends don't really seem to add a bunch, they don't hurt either and are a welcome addition. Also in the shot there are 4 different B vitamins, ginseng, ginkgo biloba, taurine, guarana, carnitine, and 120 mg of caffeine. After taking down .50 Cal in about 2 gulps this morning I got a nice boost that is slightly above your average energy shot. My energy boost lasted for about 3 hours and ended with no crash.

Overall Thoughts: .50 Cal Energy is a great energy shot. It offers a fantastic flavor as well as a pretty decent energy boost. I luckily have more flavors of energy shots from Hard8 and I look forward to trying them after the great taste of .50 Cal.
