I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to try this product out and provide some feedback, so here we go!
I got Tropical Punch and it was surprisingly refreshing. Too often we get supplements that just taste like another fruit punch drink, too sweet, blah blah blah. Not the case for this one. The flavor was smooth, and not overwhelming so it doesn't force you to chug your drink down in less than 10 seconds.
I felt the energy boost kicking in about 20-25 minutes after drinking, as I began my workout. This was a smooth energy that was - once again - not overwhelming. I am also glad to say that there was no crash afterwards. Always a good aspect especially when your day isn't done when you finish your workout.
I think this was Nitro Load's strong point. I got a very good pump while using this preworkout. You know that feeling when you can't touch your shoulders because your arms are too full of blood, or your chest cramps while you're driving home? Yeah it was that kind of pump.
Overall: 8/10 This is a solid product. It's not too intense, doesn't make you feel cracked out or like you're going to have a heart attack, but you still get a good kick and definitely a good pump. My only complaint is that the ingredients are in a proprietary blend, so I don't know exactly how much of each ingredient I'm taking. I will definitely continue to use this preworkout though, it's worth it! I recommend looking into it!
Energy was great! I took it on my way to the gym and within 20-30 mins I felt energized. I didn't feel over stimmed or shaky, just full of energy. The energy lasted my entire workout each time with no crash! Even if it was pretty long, which can happen when I have a great PWO!
Good pump. Obviously not their main focus but many people don't like a big pump. Muscle had a nice slight fullness.
The focus was phenomenal. I was in the zone so much I didn't even have time to realize it! I just got in there and was able to smash my workout each time! Keeping that drive to push through and push harder!
I mixed with about 4 oz most times. Just because I train so early and want to get it down as quick as possible. Not bad but a little grainy. Did not fully dissolve. You could try adding a little more water and I'm sure it would dissolve a little better.

I'm always up for trying new products, and I really appreciate OSN sending me a full tub of their Nitro Load PWO to try review.
Taste & Mixability: The flavor I was sent was Watermelon. I found the taste mild, but pleasant. It did have a bit of an artificial aftertaste, but nothing too unpleasant that lingered for too long. This pre-workout mixes really well...completely with no grit.
Effectiveness: I found Nitro Load to be on the milder side for a PWO. However, I am not very stimulant sensitive, and use PWO's regularly. The energy it offered came on smooth, but wasn't too intense. It really kicked in once I started my warm up sets and got my blood flowing. I did notice it warmed me up a bit more than my other PWO's, and I was sweating more than normal in our cold gym. I feel that the endurance may be it's strongest point. I felt like I could have kept right on going in the gym on the days I used it...both of which were power days, and days I typically fatigue quicker as I'm lifting much heavier those days.
Pump & Vascularity: I honestly didn't notice much of an extra pump from this PWO but I'm not a very vascular person in general, but did notice a bit more in my hands on the days I tried the Nitro Load.
Overall: I have to say I was surprised by the nice mellow, but very effective energy and endurance boost this PWO offers. I'm used to using more "intense" PWO's, but Nitro Load still was very effective for me. I will definitely keep it in my rotation. I feel it will be awesome on cardio days, where I need the endurance boost, but do not need to over stimulant my body and heart rate. I would recommend Nitro Load to those new to pre-workouts or those who prefer a much milder one.

Tropical Punch: Nice mild flavor, not artificial or heavy. Went down easily and I actually took my time to sip it because I enjoyed it so much.
Strong point for this product. I used it at the end of a 10 hour work day (mostly on my feet) and I had one of the better workouts of my week.
I was fairly dehydrated heading into the workout (not on purpose) but I still got an above average pump and muscle contractions from this product. I bet if I had drank as much water as I normally do on a daily basis, I would have given this category a 10.
