    First Impressions
    My lifting partner actually got this. I was looking at the bottle and it struck me that this product was quite complete. Contained a matrix of amino acids, which is something that I haven't seen alot of contained in Creatine/NO blends.

    It contained stims, which is a + in my book, since I'm usually somewhat burned out by the end of the day when I workout.

    One drawback for this product, I saw right away, is the Ethyl Ester for much of the product: glutamine EE, arginine, creatine, actually most of the aminos are esterfied. I agree that esterfying compounds is a somewhat breakthrough and novel idea on paper but to take it to such drastic extremes is a bit of a gamble IMO. I'd prefer to ingest what is tried and true. (I think VPX just likes putting "EX" at the end of things, like MuscleTech likes to put "-Tech" after everything.)

    Taste: 1/5
    Green Apple
    This product is no joke. It actually ruined it for me. Upon opening it, the smell is alot like cooked, cinammon apples, like in a homemade pie. I spent a good 25 seconds taking deep whiffs of it, lol.

    Mixing it was a totally different story. It was chunky, sour, bitter, I could barely drink it without getting goosebumps on my neck. I chugged it down, practically holding my nose, because tasting it was just horrible.

    Workout: 2/5
    I would've had a nice workout on this stuff, but the taste was so bitter and thick it literally wouldn't sit right in my stomache. I was burping prefusely in between most of my sets, I had a caffeine rush that hindered, not helped, my upset stomache, and I could just feel this stuff sloshing around and not digesting properly.

    Overall, if you do decide to buy this product, I would recommend drinking it about 45-1 hour before your workout, so it has time to settle.

    I did not like this product because of the taste. The effectiveness is irrelevant if your stomache is yelling at your all through your workout. I hope you have more success with this product than I.
