Hype Energy Drink Review: How’d they score the hype.com domain is a good question. How’d they score on our EDB rating? is a better question. Short answer: this is good stuff.
Hype’s small can doesn’t pack in the power; if you’re looking for a stay-up-all-night-playing-Halo kick, this wouldn’t do. Hype works well as a daily boost – easy to drink, no crash after the energy wears off.
This drink easily won fans on the BoostAdvisor team – 4 out of 5 people really enjoyed the flavor. Its berry flavor is a refreshing change from the more common citrus taste.
Some of their marketing is lame, but they’re obviously working on it. The cans originally said “Live Life. Love Life. Love Hype.” We all agreed that this was as weak as it gets.
They removed this, but we think the smaller print could go too – “You’re ready and feeling good! All you need is an extra boost. You need a Hype!”
We thought “Believe the Hype” would be a better slogan. (ed. note – a few months after originally posting this review on the old site, Hype changed their slogan to “Believe the Hype”. We applaud them for paying attention to their fans!)
If the berry flavor doesn’t appeal to you, move on, but at least give it a try. It’s “lightly carbonated” – which really makes it easy to consume on the run. So – delicious, refreshing, and a good kick for a small can. That’s right. Believe the Hype.
