Beta-alanine is a natural amino acid that buffers the burning fatigue from high-intensity exercise and significantly increases the amount of work you can do. Beta-alanine also reduces mental stress.* Learn More


Caffeine increases cyclic AMP and is well-known for its research-backed effects boosting energy and metabolism and potentiating other stimulants and fat-loss ingredients.* Learn More


L-tyrosine is a naturally occurring amino acid used by the brain to make stimulatory neurotransmitters that improve memory, mood, focus, libido, coping ability, and sense of well-being. L-tyrosine supplementation leaves people feeling refreshed after training or manual labor by mitigating some of the short-term stress caused by intensive work.*

NOTE: N-acetyl-L-tyrosine is a more water-soluble form of the amino acid L-tyrosine* Spike Shooter®, Spike® Hardcore Energy, and Spike® Double Shot formulas contain N-acetyl-L-tyrosine. Power Drive® powder contains L-tyrosine. Learn More

Good item

Tastes great. Many arrived damaged. I was refunded quickly though. Only reason I'm ordering from here is because Amazon can't keep it in stock.

I really enjoy Spike energy drinks. I like the flavor and it definitely delivers on energy. I am 50 yrs. old and don't like coffee, one Spike every morning and I'm ready to go. The energy stays with me most of the day with no sugar crash. The reoccurring shipping and ordering is an awesome selection also, not having to remember to order is nice, just once every 4 weeks I know the auto pay will come out of my account and the next day or two I receive my case at my front door. Also, the fact I live in Colorado Springs and it's a local company I'm helping support is the icing on the cake. 100% I recommend Spike to anyone who enjoys energy drinks responsibly.

Can't go a day without it!

I have been drinking these for 10 years, I think that says a lot about the drink. After all these years, I still get up and go everyday.

I like the taste, and the boost I need for those mornings I don't feel like going to the gym, but I know I should. Would I recommend it, I have.

Satisfied repeat customer for over 10 years.

Please bring back purple surge & the orange flavor version.

The Best

Strawberry Lemonade. I have one on the way to work every time. Nothing else comes close. I can't get Spike locally anymore. I must get it online. The "30 day subscribe & save" makes it more affordable than any of the other brands (brands available that are worth drinking anyway). My only complaint: grape was the best flavor, but is no longer in production - PLEASE bring it back. Also, a "white grapefruit" (like R*ckstar Zero Silver) offering from Spike would be my new "everyday".

Wake Up and Taste the Energy Drink

Spike is the best energy drink on the market and wakes me up every morning. When we lost power a few years ago, we even gave Spike to my 98-year old grandmother who was a long time coffee drinker and she loved it, thus proving you can be a bigger caffeine addict at any age.

Energy drink

Spike is one of the very few energy drinks that actually work, by far one of my favorites, however being unable to buy them in local stores is a downside.
