I think it tastes better hot than cold (left it in the car in the summer).
Got this drink at "The last hope" and "The next hope" and on various visits to NYC Resistor.
At first I wasn't happy about it, but I needed the caffeine for the convention, and it is true you get used to it. I drink it for the caffeine and for the memories.
