With summer just around the corner, there’s nothing like having a stash of cool and refreshing vapes for those days you spend primarily chilling outside. Today I’ve got one from a new vendor – Vapetasia called Citrus Breeze. Here’s what they say about it:
Citrus notes with a strong, refreshing blast of coolness. 70%vg/30%pg
I’ve got this one at 12mg in a 30/70 PG/VG blend.
This juice has an orange tone to it and smells lightly of fruit and candy in the bottle.
I was immediately greeted by a rush of refreshing coolness when I took my first hit. This juice hits awesome at 12mg, and the cool touch really helps add a little punch to the throat hit. Flavor-wise, it’s light and refreshing. The citrus presence is actually fairly light for me – I get kind of candy vibe from this juice. I can’t quite put my finger on exactly what it tastes like.
The Bottom Line
Taste. The flavor is really quite good – it’s light and fairly subtle. While I would have liked a little more zest from the citrus, it still manages to be quite refreshing and packs an admirable amount of flavor for a juice that is fairly light overall. The taste most reminds me of a very light bubblegum flavor. Not really completely accurate, but still tasty nonetheless!
True to Description. The cool factor is definitely there on this vape and I have found that it really elevates it and makes it quite satisfying. While I really don’t get a ton of citrus, it doesn’t seem to have negatively affected the flavor.
Throat Hit. It’s actually been a while since I had a 12mg juice. I was kind of bummed initially that they only offer nic up to 12mg, however I have to say I am more than impressed by how well this hits at the lower nic level. The cool burst seems to help push it over the top and this is an all around hard hitter, especially considering the specs.
Quality of Vape. The flavor is good, albeit not totally accurate, and it is quite full and refreshing. It basically stays the same from start to finish. A while back I started noticing that certain flavors have a tendency to caramelize on the atomizer after a while and add kind of a well done/burnt flavor to the vape. I first noticed it with one of my favorites – Kowrona, and have come across it in several vapes since. It seems to be lemony-citrus type vapes that have this issue. I noticed the same thing with this particular juice as well. It doesn’t necessarily ruin the flavor, but it definitely changes it. To solve this problem with Kowrona in the past, what I did was place an extra piece of cotton over the top of my coil. This seemed to help reduce it quite a bit. I would guess that if you are using a stock clearomizer like a Protank that already uses a flavor wick, this wouldn’t be nearly as much of an issue as it is in an RDA. Aside from that, I was really happy with the throat hit and the vapor production particularly impressed me.
Overall. It’s a relatively basic flavor, and I didn’t find it to have a very strong citrus presence, but at the same time I can’t seem to stop vaping it. I am really enjoying the cooling factor and I love the fact that it kicks out a healthy throat hit at a lower nic level. If you’re in it only for the citrus, you might wind up being a little disappointed, however if you are interested in an all around pleasant summertime vape with a great icy kick, this one is definitely worth a look.
