AriZona is marketing their latest grenade in the energy drink pool by giving "props" to all its "homies" in "all da hoods 'cross teh worldz" who feel that vandalism and defacement of public and private property "is da ways in which da troo artisss expresses his craft....dawg."
So, this can comes in three different designs giving credit to the street artist who came up with the particular design.
Taste Rating Scale is 1 (absolute shite) through 10 (tastes like happy)
Taste: 8 – I'm a bit biased here because I am a big fan of AriZona and its ice tea drinks. However, this one really does go down smooth with a definite taste of Green Tea and Pomegranate.
After Taste: 2 – Not really.
Effects Rating Scale is 1 (water) through 10 (check in to rehab NOW!)
Energy Boost: 8 – This is BY FAR, the best tasting 300mg caffeine drink on the market today. The energy boost is fairly long lasting (3-4 hours) and is on par with the boost provided by Spike Shooter and the better energy shots out there. The Spike Shooter, while having the same 300mg of caffeine does give a bit more boost than the All City; my only guess is that the sugar in All City may have dulled the caffeine hit a bit but I am just speculating there.
Side Effects/Crash: 5 - A little bit of a crash 4 hours after drinking.
