(9 out of 10)
Taste: The last "new" Monster I had was nothing unique in terms of taste. I was really hoping the Monster Dub would bring something new to the table for flavoring. When I opened up the can I got a very pleasant scent that reminded me of grape soda. Of course being that it is made by Monster you can expect traces of the original Monster to be lingering in with the other flavors.

Does It Work: Monster has always done fairly well in the kick department and Monster Dub Edition is no exception. Powering each can of Dub there is 253 calories, 64.4 g of sugar, 2300 mg of taurine,184 mg of caffeine, multiple B vitamins, ginseng, and 5750 mg of Monster's energy blend. After drinking the can down I got a very nice energy boost that was above your average energy drink in terms of kick. I was filled with energy for around 3 and half hours and it all came to an end with a very slight crash.

Overall Thoughts: As usual Monster has delivered a very good drink. The packaging is one of the slickest looking Monster cans to date and the taste is a nice change. I really wish Monster Dub was easier to find and available where ever Monster was sold. Monster fans will definitely want to give this a try. If you manage to find one of these I can easily recommend it.
