I have just started using this and I have to say it helps out quite a bit with providing an extra boost to your workout. I tried the sample packet and had such a good workout I ordered a full tub shortly there after. Its not the cheapest product and rarely goes on sale but I understand why. As far as flavor the Juicy Grape is the way to go Purple Lemonade is fine but the Grape is better. I have not tried the cotton candy but it isn't really a flavor I would go for in the first place. I am no scientist so as far as the actual effectiveness all I can go by is the way it makes me feel during and after workouts. Its a two thumbs up in my book and will make it a regular part of my workouts.

Quality amino product. Good price for the amount of servings, tastes good and has some beta alanine for endurance.

A great product, only been using it for 3 weeks and I find it's helped me in the gym. Can't have pre or intra workout supplements with caffeine in them so Purple Wraath was my supplement of choice. Gives you a good amount of energy and supports recovery. Mixes extremely easily, I just put it into a bottle of water and shake it. Tastes pretty great as well. I've tried mixing 2 scoops with 1.5 liters of water and having it before and during workout and also mixing 3/4 scoop with 500ml before workout. Neither approach had an impact on my stomach which was great!

Got my samples in and normally don't take Amino Acids. Really helped during the workout to maintain that ready for next set feeling. Able to push myself a little further and not be dragging myself out of the gym. Tried the cotton candy. Not a big fan but didn't taste horrible. All in all good product.

Awesome taste and an amazing formula. Anything that tastes really sweet just gets me going in the gym. I noticed increased endurance/stamina while using this product during my workouts. I have tried the Juicy Grape flavor as well and it's just as good.

I wasn't overly keen on the taste I found it tasted like petrol (never drank petrol but I can imagine). I found it was quite good considering it had no caffeine. But if your looking for a good prewar lour caffeine is the way forward for me. But it was okay.

Very good product. I have been using this for several years and it definitely works when taking it after your morning workout.

Again I didn't feel a big overwhelming change but I did hit the weights pretty hard while using this product and was only slightly sore and was ready to hit it again the next day.

The single serving dose of EAA+ Beta Alanie and Betaine is perfect for a person who weigh till 160 Pound. Need to work little more if you want to mix with the help of spoon, Flavour is good. The best part of this is that you can mix it with your pre workout or post workout. Infact you can take it alone as standalone post workout product, just need to mix little creating and little dextrose.

Where Controlled Labs' other products haven't exactly wowed my taste buds, the cotton candy Purple Wraath is an exception. Mixed this stuff up early and let it chill in the fridge for a while before working out, and it was easily the best tasting "sports drink" I'd ever had throughout my routine. I wasn't expecting much of an effect, but as I checked each exercise off my list I noticed I was considerably less fatigued. I wouldn't call it a must, but if you find yourself flagging and need something that'll help carry you to the finish line, this'll get you there no problem.

Where to begin? Cotton Candy smells and tastes delicious! Rated this product a solid ten because that is what it deserves. Profile is perfect and if you are looking for a BCAA product to add to your stack, this one is it. Pick up some Purple Wraath today.

This is my first pre-workout supplement so I don't have much to compare to. However, I can definetly tell this makes a difference in my workouts, especially at the end. Feels like there is a lot more gas left at the ends of workouts that used to really drain me. The taste really isn't very good, but its drinkable. Again, I have nothing to compare it to as far as pre-workout flavors go.

Bought 4 bottles to stock up when it was on sale a while ago and used up two. Had a good experience using it. However the last two bottles have gone bad and taste like ***. There is still 9 months left till it expires. Both bb.com and controlled labs refuse to replace/take it back. Moral of the story? If you plan to purchase this, best use it up right away otherwise dont expect this product to last more than 6 months. I wont be purchasing a controlled labs product again; they do not guarantee their expiry dates.

Flavor is alright and I drank this while on White Rapid and had the best workout ever.

Got a sample of this. Not a fan of the flavour. It's not bad but not something I'm excited to drink during a workout. It works though but I think I'll stick with Xtend for the better flavouring and great profile as well.

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.

I dont have much experience with amino acids ive only tried this and bsn's I would say bsn's wm tasted better than the contolled labs purp lem but I felt better with this product the focus was great I took it as a replacement for a pre workout and it worked pretty well.

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!
