This is the only CL product I tried that I didn't like.First off after opening I got a weird smell,not sure how to explain it other than weird.It mixed pretty easily with a few shakes,produced very little foam and very little left over grit.The taste,like the smell,is weird as well.I didn't capture the lemonade taste,it actually has a chemical like taste.Stacked with White Rapids and Green Magnitude,I got really nice energy without a crash or jitters and pretty good pumps.It has a really nice profile,although I prefer a non proprietary blend so I can see exactly what I get,but that won't sway my decision that much.If they change the flavor or maybe if I try another flavor it might be different,but as of now I personally would not buy this.

This is a great amino acid product. Not only does it include the EAAs, but I love the inclusion of both beta alanine and citrulline malate in the profile. Add that together with a very refreshing lemonade flavor and you get a supplement that I have no problem recommending to anyone who is looking for a great intraworkout product!

I'm a big believer in aminos for recovery. I always have some aminos with my workout and often between meals. This amino is different from others that i've tried. It has Beta alanine and Citruline in it! So it provides a bit of endurance to help your pwo to push through. Great stuff at a great price.

A few years ago I bought purple wraath after reading about it in a magazine. It was the first intra-workout I ever used and remembered loving it. However it had been about 6 years since I used it last so I decided to order again for nostalgia sake. I have to say I was disappointed. The last year or so I have been using aminox by BSN and Xtend by Scivation. I take two scoops of those so I used two scoops of Purple Wraath. I am still on Aminox but took purple wraath tonight so I could adequately compare them. The biggest thing I noticed is the taste, aminoX wins considerably. As far as workout I did not feel as though I recovered as fast set, I was more sore at the end of the workout and did not feel the same overall level of endurance. Do not get me wrong it did help a little bit, but in my opinion Xtend and AminoX work more effectively and with a better taste. It was a good trip down memory lane, but I have officially closed the book on this product going forward.

Good amino acid profile, plus some goodies like beta alanine and betaine anhydrous. I wish I knew exactly how much betaine was in here though. Takes a little more effort to mix...the other Controlled Labs products that I've tried, all I had to do was throw it in a glass of water and stir, but this one was a little clumpier and needed a shaker and a good 30 seconds of shaking, though it was fine after that. The Purple Lemonade is very good too, and Cotton Candy is probably the best tasting intra that I've had!

i love this stuff but not the cotton candy. its called purple wraath for a reason , its the best flavor. This has everything you need for during a work out. Stack with green mag and some carbs and you will be pumped.

Brutal flavor. Absolutely brutal. Tastes like a grape tire. It was very chemically and hard to swallow. It mixed well, so I guess that is something. I guess I felt okay during my workout, but I dreaded taking another sip. Tried to give it to a friend, but sharing grape tire didn't go over well. Perhaps another flavor is tolerable.

Purple Wraath is a staple for me. One of the most well rounded and most complete profiles of EAA/BCAA's makes this the perfect supplement to use when I train fasted. Taste is phenomenal and the power, strength and energy support is one of the best, if not the best IMO. If you train as hard as you can, this supplement will help maintain that level of intensity throughout your entire workout.

Purple Wrath is one of the best Intra supplements out there PERIOD, and it's made by Controlled Labs so you know it's good!!! You simply cannot go wrong with Purple Wrath, it's filled with good dosages of quality ingredients and tastes delicious. The pricing of Purple Wrath is excellent as well, 90 servings for just over $45, thats about 50 cents a serving!!!! Pick up a tub of Purple Wrath Cotton Candy and you will not be disappointed.

i used this as a pre and intra workout. i would drink bottle half way and top with water so it just kept going through my system. i did not feel like i had an energy overload, but during my workout i didnt get tired. I just got the normal tired where your muscles get sore but i didnt feel sluggish. thought this was a great product and would definately purchase this product.

I felt like I had alot more energy when taking Purple Wraath but I have tried other BCCAs that felt like they had more effect. The taste itself was phenomenal, I actually looked forward to drinking it, I would buy Purple Wraath again if I couldnt get a good deal on Allmax Aminocore.

Been using this for about 20 days now. I take two scoops every day, on training days 1 before and 1 after workout. Taste not bad, and it helps with recovery, i think better endurance as well. I used AminoX from bsn before this and i like this better.

I used this stacked with green magnitude. I had much more endurance and was my veins were popping out much more than usual when I was on this. It helped a lot with soreness, and I saw some gains too. One problem is taste, I'm on my iPhone and it won't let me select the individual flavor. I've used both purple lemonade and cotton candy. Purple lemonade had a strong chemical taste with a bad aftertaste, but when cold it's drinkable for sure. Cotton candy was better, it didn't taste like cotton candy really, it was weird. But these are supplements not soda or anything like that, and yes purple wraath works very well.
