Sad days to see $1.25 on the can instead of $1. Next thing you know, things at the dollar store are going to be over a dollar... oops. Google it, not a joke.
This is the best tasting Rip It I've had so far, bar none. The citrus taste is actually delicious. It's a nicely done combination of bitter and sweet with no negative aftertaste. The strongest identifiable flavor is orange, but there's definitely a hint of other citrus notes.
The new Rip It designs are a step up, but they're still pretty wonky. The silver X in the middle boosts it to a 6/10 for me.
This has 200mg of caffeine so it's getting a high score off the bat from me. I'm going to knock it for having 51g of sugar which always introduces the risk of a sugar crash.
This is a huge step in the right direction for Rip It. Clean can, great taste, and the perfect amount of caffeine for me. It's the full package. If they can minimize the sugar content, down to a reasonable 30g or so, this and the rest of their drinks will start to creep up my rankings.
