Rowdy Orange Citrus is solidly in the middle of a sea of orange flavored energy drinks. Its taste is slightly different than each of its competitors, though that doesn't bring it out of the middle in terms of rankings. It's decent flavor in a good looking can, which meets expectations. Regardless, I find myself wishing for another quality or two that would entice me to grab this product off the shelf regularly. Updates to aspects of this drink would push this product to the next level, such as: healthier ingredients, less sugar or bolder taste.
One of many orange flavored drinks on the market, it seems like every brand has an orange variation. Rowdy's Orange Citrus has a unique formula, it is a mix of the artificial orange flavor and citrus flavors. In terms of taste, I have it in the middle of the pack. It is solid but not exceptional in any manner.
Rowdy used two shades of orange for this can. They chose the lighter shade as the primary accent color across the can. I would've preferred the darker shade to improve readability of the white text, but that's just nitpicking a good looking can. Notably, the top of this can has an aluminum finish, as opposed to coloring it black as seen on other Rowdy cans. I'm curious if there is a rationale for which cans get which top, maybe Rowdy can let me know.
Rowdy Orange Citrus has 160mg of caffeine. The drink is roughly equivalent to two cups of coffee.
