So it finally got here today. Vanilla Mint Swirl. First off big thanks to everyone on the iForce team. I even popped on my iForce t for the first tasting.
Profile: I definitely like this profile. 20 grams of protein per serving which is perfect for post-workout or really any time. 6.5 grams of carbs is just under the threshold of what I want as a low carber in a protein I want to use more often. 120 calories per serving sits right there with most others.
Here's a picture of the powder in the tub:

The smell hits you as you open the bottle. It's lovely.
Mixability: I use a with a whisk in the bottom but I think any old shaker cup would do. For my first serving I used 4 oz. of water and two ice cubes. A couple nice shakes and it was ready. Here's a top view of the in a glass:
Taste: I gotta disagree with all the others, this tastes like used tire. Ok of course not. By now you know iForce has a winner with this flavor. No one has said otherwise yet. It's a simply fantastic taste. It's a subtle mint flavor, very similar to thin mint girl scout cookies or an Andes mint. Honestly I wanted to drink it slowly but I found myself chugging the first while...not chugging like usual with most powders cause I can't wait for it to be over, but chugging because I couldn't stop tasting the stuff. I'll admit I'm a huge sucker for all things mint, but if you even like mint a bit this is for you. It's absolutely delicious.
The rest of this log: I'm going to use the Protean in some different ways. I'll mix it in milk, with Greek Yogurt, and whatever else I can think of to put this to the test. I'll be updating this with thoughts on the different tastes as I mix it with more than just water. I can already tell you after just one serving; if you're on the fence get off. It's freaking delicious stuff. I was looking for a new protein since seems to be out of stock for forever. I found it. I'm ordering a tub tonight. I only have two questions: Why isn't this flavor at Nutraplanet yet and when can I get this bad boy in 4 pounds instead of 2?
An absolute home run product and the best protein powder I've ever tried. I've only downed one serving and I am already borderline craving this stuff. I think I'll go have another
