Jason's Review

"Assault" is a fitting name for this drink, as it's an all-out assault on the good name of Monster beverages. It tastes like President's Choice first attempt at making cherry cola using Vicks 44 Cherry Throat Spray. It's so thick and has a nasty after taste that will leave you begging your mouth for forgiveness. Without question, hands-down the worst of the Monster line of energy beverages. If I have my chronological order correct, this was the first release after the original and lo-carb, then came Monster Khaos, which I'd rate only a slight improvement over travesty. If you like bad tasting cherryish sodas that are thick like flat Dr. Pepper poured over War and Peace, this is your drink.

I gagged this down throughout the course of the day, so I can't speak many accolades for the energy either. The ingredients look about the same as what I'm now calling "The Good Monster Drinks", so I'd expect if you could somehow suppress your gag reflex long enough to chug it, you'd get similar results.

If this tasted good, the value would be the same as "The Good Monster Drinks", but since it tastes so bad, I might deduct a value point from every Monster product in tacit wrath for Monster Assaults horrific flavor.

Guests's Review

Monster Assault is the cola version of an energy drink for those people who really like the taste of Coke or Pepsi. We have reviewed cola like drinks in the past and it hasn't failed that I have not been pleased with any. There is no real exception to this since I didn't grow up drinking dark colas. They all taste horrible in my opinion and I was very upset that Monster had gone that route. Of course I assume that for many soda drinkers this is a fresh step in the direction they may want to go. For me it tasted like some mixture of generic red soda and cola.

I wasn't pleased with the taste at all and made the mistake of putting off drinking the rest until it got a too close to room temperature and became thick and flat. Since it took me all day to get anywhere near drinking the whole can I felt like I could drift off to sleep any time I blinked my eyes. The only exception was the times that I'd attempt to finish the soda and my taste buds were shocked at this flavor as well as my stomach which was severely displeased with my choice of drink. All day it rumbled in discontent and I had to resort to Gas X for the sake of my clients.

I finished most of the drink but maybe close to a quarter of it is left. I do feel like that should be plenty to be an adequate judge of the drink itself. I know it sounds bad but it wasn't really that terrible of a drink. I would have given it a higher score on value but I deducted the cost of the Gas X from it.

Monster Assault can or bottle design and textual information
The Monster logo is a strong symbol which is used on each can and already well recognized. Assault stamped across the front of the can in a semi military confidential style along with the camouflage background makes me feel totally commando carrying this around.

I'm a huge energy drink junkie but I hate sodas and I have to say you are way off base with your review assault is by far the Best of the monster energy line and everyone I have had try it agrees with me perhaps you should give it another go and let me know how it is your second go round. Who knows they might have changed it since you tried it or perhaps your taste buds were taking the day off.
Stryder@2012-12-10 15:23:08
Oh please, Monster Assault is my favorite flavor Monster besides Loca Moca. Very rich in taste and smooth. Actually prefer this flavor over the regular green Monster, and esspecialy over the new Absolutey Zero ultra or whatever it's called that's out now, which tastes much worse than the regular Absolutey Zero.

Modernscribe@2010-11-15 16:10:56
Delicious cherry cola flavor and smells incredible , I wish they made a scented candle in "monster assault" ! Hahaa !! Gives me a nice buzz to workout to! Great job monster!
Daniel@2010-09-15 12:22:04
I personally love assault flavor the most, I find it a nice change from the original monster with a better taste and a better smell. I personally haven't tried lo-carb but I probably will the next time I get a monster.
j-dog@2010-08-09 11:03:21
monster assault has a crappy thick nasty taste, call monster and demand a refund!
stedaw@2010-08-02 15:01:13
Assault reminds me of jager... the smell almost made me gag.
Kyle@2010-07-19 16:43:53
okay, first off, this energy drink I have only had a few times. The very first time it was one of my first energy drinks, and I didn't like it very much (but you really have to get used to Monster). I tried it again and it tasted like a Monster should taste. Obviously it had a different taste than usual, but I find pretty much all Monsters good. I can definitely taste the Monster in this one, there IS NO COLA TASTE, and I don't really remember if it tasted cherry or not. Maybe I'm just different than these reviewers because I LOVE Khaos. It's pretty much a citrus-y, juicy, Monster, with a hint of orange and like pineapple. Sorry for getting off the right drink, but Assault is ok. Really.

Please be careful when using this product. My husband drank one of the monster assault energy drinks and a half hour later he had a seizure. so be careful.
Kayla@2010-06-17 11:23:10
My friend said that Monster was one of the best energy drinks ever so I thought I'd try it. WOW! I went crazyyy for that first time I had it and it still gets me hyped up! Monster Assault is freaking AWESOME energy drink!! Congrats.
Atokad@2010-05-28 12:16:36
i agree, Monster Assault tastes nothing like cola but definitely cherry induced. this is without a doubt my favorite monster.
p.s. do not drink on an empty stomach or early in the morning! i was twitching for about three hours!!!
steve@2010-05-25 12:56:34

Raiku@2010-05-17 13:08:54
Well, monster assault is pretty good, but reminds me of a soda that I can't put my finger on.

"I would have given it a higher score on value but I deducted the cost of the Gas X from it." Wow? Very professional site, last time I visit. Edited by Jason: If we could have blocked you specifically from ever visiting in the first place, we would have. Bottom line, Assault sucks, and that truth will offend some fanboys.
the cool dude@2010-01-14 14:47:14
Monster Assault doesn't taste like cola at all.
Zack@2009-12-11 13:17:17
Did somebody swap your drink on you? Monster Assault is awesome. it tastes nothing like coke, it kind of tastes like Sierra Mist Cranberry Splash and the original Monster.
Riley@2009-11-13 14:26:51
Monster Assult's ok, I find the tangy flavor and the tart citrus to combine nicely. Although it is very high in rich acids, and it has an overpowering sweet flavor. I would give it a 6/10.

Monster Assault is my 4th energy drink. it sucks, its like cherry dr. pepper but i thought it would be good.
Tony@2009-07-01 11:30:40
MONSTER ASSAULT!!! This one I go out of my way to find- without a doubt the BEST tasting. This is from a life long espresso and Coca Cola drinker.
Monster Fanatic@2009-04-14 16:19:37
