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.

Bodybuilding.com was quick to to send me my free item. Seemed was a mistake I made. I'm grateful though and will continue to shop here and no longer GNC...thanks to the great customer service at bodybuilding.com

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.

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.
