A combination of tea and lemonade, standard energy ingredients, and electrolytes -- even a little bit of coconut water -- put Monster Rehab on a higher level than most other entries from a functional perspective. The flavor was also spot on -- it was easily the best tasting energy drink that the panel tasted all year.
Additionally, Monster has always featured strong branding and the Rehab product is no different. The can is very familiar in appearance but it also offers unique yellow and faded gold tones really help sell the tea and lemonade flavor inside.
That's why, after much jittery deliberation, Monster Rehab is the winner of BevNET's Best of 2011 Best Energy Drink.
