The Look: One of the reasons I believe Monster is on top of the energy drink category is their packaging and Rehab Orangeade is no different. The can is done in just 3 colors: black, orange, and white. The color scheme goes together very nicely and creates one of my favorite Monster cans. The only thing that stops me from giving the can a perfect 10 is that Monster still refuses to list their caffeine content on the can.

Taste: The flavor of the newest Rehab flavor is listed as Orangeade. The drink has a nice blend of orange with an aftertaste of tea. The orange and tea compliment each other very nicely. As with most Monster energy drinks there is no caffeine bitterness or funky aftertaste.

Does It Work: Each 16 oz can of Orangeade is powered by 20 calories, 6 grams of sugar, 4 different B vitamins, 2000 mg of taurine, 400 mg of panax ginseng, and 6400 mg of what they label as the "Rehab Energy Blend". Just like the other Rehabs, I was filled with a very nice burst of energy about half way through the can. By the time I finished the entire can, I was wide awake and going about my day with extra energy. There was no crash at the end and I would put the energy at about the 3 - 3.5 hour mark.

Overall Thoughts: The original Monster Rehab was one of my favorite energy drinks on the market. Now after trying Orangeade, I actually believe Monster has made the great even better with the addition of Rehab Orangeade. If you see one of these on the shelf, do yourself a favor and grab one. As always let me know your thoughts and comments below.
