Looks like I'm the only one having a weird reaction to this. About 25 minutes after taking, I get extremely anxious for about 5 minutes. Then I kind of feel out of breath for about the first half of my workout making it really uncomfortable if I'm doing any cardio. I had White Flood when it first came out and I did not experience this. I'm used to high stim PWOs so something is just not jiving with me. I wouldn't count on anything spectacular from this PWO, just energy. There's nothing in here that will give you good pumps, strength increases, or endurance. Just think of it as an energy drink. Even if I didn't have negative reactions to this, I would probably search for a cheaper option. And the Electric Lemonade is a pretty bad flavor.

The worst tasting and foul smelling preworkout I've ever had

Aug 17, 2018

There are lot of good things to say about this pre-workout from it's ingredient list but I find it makes me a little too relaxed. I'm not sure if anybody else has experienced this but I really fall off towards the end of my workout. Maybe it's just the way the GABA effects me but I simply cannot do a full dose of this, as when I do I almost get sleepy. However, it's a great "feel good" pre-workout and if you are going into your routine with a little or a lot of stress from the day, this might just take the edge off for you, especially for a shorter Routine. I would recommend trying it as you may have very different results, it's definitely the most unique pre-workout I have ever tried. My favorite is "Impact Igniter" by Allmax. My routines are about 80 minutes and Impact Igniter stays solid for me all the way through, stat to finish, and the ingredient list is outstanding in my view.

Thanks to the CL crew for bringing this back. The nostalgia is strong. Mixes up perfectly, no clumps or sediment hanging around the bottom. Taste was decent, not amazing but not horrible by any means. Definitely drinkable. Effects-wise it gives a decent energy and focus boost. It isn't a heavy hitter but is quite nice on days where you may not need to go balls to the walls with high stims, massive pumps, etc. I think this would be great for someone just getting into preworkouts, or someone that enjoys a milder stimmed pre. I could also see this being used as an afternoon pick me up in place of an energy drink or cup of coffee. Thanks again CL!

I love controlled labs other lines of pre-workouts, and aminos. always giving me a good pump, and plenty of energy, and this one is no different. Except the taste. This stuff tastes horrible! The electric lemonade tastes like literal pee. It's bearable, but certainly is tough to stomach through. Hopefully the other flavors are as good as their other products flavors! But once again, the effects themselves are great. Great energy. Great pump.

Great too see this classic come back, it always had a good formula for energy and focus that's more than just caffeine. Which is what I got from this, above average lift in focus and the energy to follow it. Its not really big on pumps and endurance but I'm ok with that. The focus and energy sells it for me. The taste is ok though, you get the raspberry lemonade flavor but then there is this weird chemically after taste. Its not too terrible not amazing.

Single scooped w/Gamer-Up provided phenomenally focused & energized workouts & double scooped alone is perfect for serious pumps & endurance. I absolutely love the novel use of Inosine, Gamma Amino Butyric Acid (GABA), Glucuronolactone, Theobromine, Evodiamine, CoQ10, Alpha Carotene, Zeaxanthin, Cryptoxanthin, Lutein which provide numerous health benefits including: ocular health, optimal blood pressure, reduction of exercise-induced toxins, nervous system integrity, etc. Thinking that this formula is out-dated is a misconception, it's unique formulation is very effective & stacks well w/other CL products as well (White Rapids/Pipes & Purple Wraath intra-workout). Strongly recommend OG White Flood to everyone for it's ability to improve one's overall well-being and performance!

White Flood Classic is the perfect name for this. this is an iconic Pre that i can remember using many years ago and kind of forgot about. when i recently got re-aquainted with WF i was reminded just how solid a product it is. theres nothing over the top about it, just clean energy, focus and pumps. if youve never tried WF do yourself a favor and try a CLASSIC!

Oct 27, 2017

I was lucky enough to get a tub of this to try out from RaginAzn as I originally loved the original and take other CL products Promore, Orange Triad and the quality is always exceptional. This definitely doesn't disappoint in being a throwback has the same great taste without being too sweet or tart in any regard. Same great ingredients nothing too highly stimmed out but not a stim free as I like to have some caffeine in my pre's. Overall this is a solid pre workout but unfortunately doesn't have all of the stuff in the new pre's that are out now. It's definitely still greatly priced and would work well for a ton of people that don't like heavy doses of caffeine and still have solid ingredient profile, good energy, focus and good pumps.

I recently completed my log of Electric Lemonade White Flood Classic. It was a fun log, and here's my final review. Formula - 8/10 It would obviously be somewhat unfair to judge White Flood Classic by the standards of pre-workouts today or their current line because of all the innovation, improvement, and competition that we have observed in the pre-workout market; however, I am going to do some of that. So this is a disclaimer that this is an old school formula, which is why it is somewhat thinner and stocked with ingredients that have fallen out of current favor. The White Flood Classic formula leads off with potassium, folate, and selenium follow by the eNO Flood Complex, which includes 2.2 grams of L-arginine and 800 mg of L-ornithine. Next is the FlooDurance Complex, which features 1.7 grams of beta-alanine and 700 mg L-tyrosine. This unique blend is rounded up with a 3.684 gram blend of an assortment of active agent, including GABA, stimulants, nootropics, and antioxidants. First, I'd like to say that I appreciate the variety of different actives that are used in the formula and some of the interesting ingredient. It is nice to see GABA used - it is a rare ingredient in pre-workouts but does provide an interesting feel. It also looks like the GABA is dosed respectably - maybe even too much to those sensitive to it (shortness of breadth and rapid heartbeat are sometimes reported as side effects). The beta-alanine, l-tyrosine, and l-arginine are all reasonably dosed. The l-arginine and l-ornithine are not optimal nitric oxide boosters but that is due to the age of the formula. I like the 250 mg dose of caffeine - not too high or too low, especially in combination with the GABA and theobromine. I'm not a huge fan of the antioxidants in the Energy and Antioxidant Flood Complex, but it's no big deal. Considering the advancement in pre-workouts today, White Flood Classic was definitely strong and competitive for its time and can still deliver performance benefits now too. Flavor - 8 The electric lemonade flavor was enjoyable. As a flavor profile, I think it is essentially on par with the current White Flood flavor profiles. It has some thin sweetness to it and the lemon flavor comes through well. Very happy with the flavor and the product mixes well. There is a mild somewhat salty aftertaste but doesn't effect drinkability. Performance - 10 In terms of the performance effects of White Flood Classic, I was pretty impressed for an old school pre-workout. It was a little slow to hit, but the energy came through (I am used to 300-350 mg of caffeine usually). The energy was smooth and sustained - subtle yet powerful. I was pleasantly surprised my the density and fullness of the muscle pumps despite the old school NO boosters. This pump effect was sometimes a little hit and miss. Focus was decent and the feel of the GABA was definitely a plus. The GABA is really a differentiating factor for White Flood Classic. Very happy effects wise. Overall - 9

I enjoyed trying this, and having to opportunity to test a "classic" preworkout. I felt a decent pump, and I get a mild boost of energy, both didn't seem to last very long. I didn't get any exceptional focus or endurance. The flavor was a little weak, and I really didn't taste any raspberry. This formula was top notch when released, and the flavor was probably on point for that time period, but unfortunately, the new preworkouts that have come out have eclipsed this one in both flavor and effects. This is great for someone who needs a mild pre, or wants to stack it with their own ingredients to customize their pre to meet their needs.

Oct 21, 2017

My pump while lifting on this was pretty good. I would say that when I stacked it I had a better workout than when it is standalone but that happens for all my workouts when I am using specifically just a pump product. The energy I had while using it by itself was still good and I hit all my numbers I was going for each workout. I had to have a meal about an hour before I used it though or my energy just wouldnt be there. Due to it not being a heavy stimulant preworkout it gave me a mellow type of energetic feeling and increased my vascularity during my workout like most pump products do for me. The new White Flood definitely crushes its previous version but that isnt surprising. I definitely still liked being able to use the old school version though. It felt pretty nostalgic since most companies dont bring back older formulas.

I received the chance to try all three pre workouts from Controlled labs. From a flavor standpoint, the preworkout falls short of MODERN pre workouts but is still enjoyable. Effects were great with good energy without jitters as well as good focus and mild pumps. When compared to new preworkouts, the profile isn't amazing but thats not the niche it was aiming to fill. this preworkout is for those who want to throw it back with an effective PWO and old school taste.

Oct 10, 2017

A absolute classic! I am glad CL brought it back

Oct 10, 2017

This is a decent PreWorkout for its nostalgic value. It doesn't really stand up to today's standards though. I wish the medicinal smell/taste was not such a bother... it made it almost impossible to enjoy the refreshing Lemonade taste which is quite good otherwise.
