Rosie's Initial Impressions: White Flood
White Flood (White Raspberry Flavour)
Smell: 9.5/10. As soon as I opened the tub the scent of magnolias filled my senses. There was the faintest hint of raspberry, but to me it was predominantly floral (um, WTF???). The scent was gorgeous and made me look forward to trying it!
Taste: 8/10. White Flood in White Raspberry tastes exactly like raspberry sorbet. The taste is strong. However, there IS another taste underneath the raspberry that hit about halfway through consumption and it is NOT pleasant.
Solubility: 10/10. As soon as I added the powder to water it almost instantly dissolved. On shaking there was no trace of the powder and no clumps or excess was left in the water or on the bottom of the shaker.
Texture: 10/10. Like fruit juice diluted with water.
Other Effects: 5/10. I started out using 2 scoops as opposed to the recommend half scoop for the first usage, as I am usually ok with most products, and even the 'stronger' products that have recommended starting out at less than full-dosage have not affected me, so I just went straight ahead with White Flood from the start...I have experienced Beta-Alanine tingles before, but they have never been as strong as what I got from the White Flood. They started ~10 minutes after dosing and lasted for a good 50-60 minutes once they started. The tingles were pretty bad in my face and ears (which I have never felt them in before). I felt like my face was burning up and it became a little more flushed than the usual ruddiness from exercise.
You can follow my experience with this product either at Rosie rides the White Raspberry wave of Controlled Labs' White Flood or in my 2009 training/supplementation journal at The Female Terminator Chronicles from post #856.

I just finished a tub of WF leamonade and the last couple of workouts noticed a shortness of breath as well. No racy sensations in the heart. I was taking 2 scoops preWO. I didn't experience any problems until my last couple of workouts.
Whats up with the shortness of breath?

I know stress and caffeine intake can lead to shortness in breath in certain people. Maybe that is it?

I would say this is an accurate review from my experience with WF. Taste, smell, solubility where all great but like Rosie i wasnt very impressed.
It isnt a bad pre-workout but not something i would try again. Others may get way better positive effects from the product.
Green Mag i enjoyed more and is a good creatine in my opinion. And glycergro is amazing for pumps.

White flood provides the best focus and energy of anything I have tried. It is also very strong, 1 scoop does me right 99% of the time. The downside to the potency is that if you are using it for pumps, 1 scoop won't provide the effect of 2 scoops (a full serving). But it's highly economical that way.
I would rank it up there with rpm for pre-workout energy. White flood is clean and far more focused and happy, rpm is angry and aggressive, and promotes better strength gains. Neither cause a crash.

I haven't use White Flood long enough to make a comparison to RPM. However, RPM is one of my top 2 preworkout products, and I AM using it alongside White Flood as well.

Blue Gene is not a product that has ever struck me as wanting to be used. Besides, if I was wanting a non-stim, energy, endurance, and recovery supplement, I am already covered.

Eh, I LOVE Blue Gene. To each their own.

I love the effects of WF, however personally the lemonade has a better taste to me.
