I'm a fan of the regular NOS Energy Drink. It is honestly one of the better tasting drinks I have had the displeasure of sucking down.

Energy Shots have increased in popularity over the past couple of years with many companies marketing their "energy shots" as hyper infused liquid of concentrated caffeine. However, most of these small energy bombs contain as much or less caffeine than the 16oz variety. The obvious exception to this being the Redline Poweshot and Upshot which contain 350 and 200mg of caffeine respectively.

NOS Powershot is no different than the run of the mill over-hyped energy shots. The caffeine content is a modest 125mg per shot. The best part is the taste. This is by far the best tasting energy shot I have tried. It tastes like a concentrated version of the 16oz NOS drink.

No real leap of ingenuity here; NOS is simply attempting to throw its hat into the "Energy Shot" market. In all honesty, it is a good attempt.

Taste Rating Scale is 1 (absolute shite) through 10 (tastes like happy)

Taste: 7 If you like the taste of the 16oz NOS product, then you will like this powershot. Good citrus-like taste that finishes clean with no medicinal after taste as is typical in an energy shot.

After Taste: 3 None really.

Effects Rating Scale is 1 (water) through 10 (check in to rehab NOW!)

Energy Boost: 5-6 Nothing to knock your socks off; but, it does give you a Red Bullish type of boost and only takes one sip.

Side Effects/Crash: 2 None that I noticed.
