First i would just like to thank Josh and the rest of the PES team for the opportunity to sample and review ENHANCED. I got my samples, and was so eager to try them out, but i wanted to make sure i was going to be able to do the (2) samples i received in 2 days. Ok, enough of my chatter let's get down to business.
Taste: I can tell right away just from the smell, this is raspberry. I as usual, decided to mix mine with (1)16.9oz bottle of water. The taste was nothing less than what we have come to expect from PES. The flavor was easy to get down, not medicinal at all. I tend to use alot of water compared to most because, i'm not a sweet flavor guy. Even using more than your typical amount of water, the sweet and tang were both there. I truly enjoyed it. A product i can take every day without being sick of the flavor.
Mixability: No problems here. I dont know what PES will be recommending the water to product volume will be but, using my small bottle of water i had zero problems getting it to mix, and had no graininess.
Energy: Well, i'm not sure how to even describe this, but i'll give it my best. I took my samples on an empty stomach, like i do with every pre-workout i have tried, so i have a fair assessment, and comparability to those others i have taken. I chose they typical 30-60 minute window before training. Within 10 minutes....BAM! I was overtaken. I mean that in a good way. I felt a little warm, a crazy focused feeling, and a perfect amount of energy. My heart wasn't pounding but for sure it was full of energy, like the rest of me. This was a beautiful feeling. I was ready to rip into the weights 10 minutes after taking ENHANCED. NICE! I didnt get any shakes or tingling which (for me) is a good thing. I'm not into the shakes nor the tingling. They both to me are unnecessary and a little scary. Real nice buzzy feeling throughout my workout and about 3-4hrs after. Not once did i feel dizzy or over stimulated. Just this focus, and i can actually feel that my pupils were pinned. Is this cocaine in a bottle? Perhaps
Pump: There is definitely a pump blend of some sort in here. (i don't have an ingredient profile, as this is a beta) I got a great pump going after my 2nd set on both days. It came on mid-set and my muscles felt juiced. Gotta love the pump. I was for sure swollen, and i was happy. Very nice. The pump actually lasted for most of the rest of my day.
Vascularity: Here being a bigger guy with a little too much weight on, is my problem. My veins kind of hide on me under my extra fat. I can get some of them to come see me while being in a bulk stage, but it's rare for the most part i get any good ones. Well, ENHANCED certainly enhanced that. I was rather surprised. I'm not going to lie and tell you i became a vascular freak from 2 doses. That certainly did not happen. But on arms day i did notice 2 of my big boys right below and onto my bicep were in fact, more visible, and looked slightly fuller.
Overall: Overall i can without naming other brands and products, say i can toss them. I have been using the grape flavored one for a while now, and PES just found a way for me to lose that obnoxious flavored pw. This ENHANCED, certainly will be the next big thing on the market. From the flavor to the feeling it gave was a top notch experience. I cannot wait to see this on the market and enjoy it for a long time. I certainly appreciate the chance i got to sample this, and i was not let down by PES at all. A-1 product.
