Hop-Up cola is a brand of soda in Rapture, established in 1949.[1] Though commonly mistaken for a bottle of beer, there is no ill effect to consuming large quantities of this beverage. Drinking soda will restore a small amount of EVE, and splicing the Extra Nutrition line of Gene Tonics will increase the yield of EVE each bottle gives.
