Very, very spicy. It can easily ruin what you put it on if you aren’t ready for it. I like spicy things, and this is definitely spicy as h-e-double-hockeysticks. The flavor is initially good, and then about 2 seconds later you just get this overwhelming blast of heat. It is intense! Be prepared and be sure to taste test after a VERY small addition of this sauce.
Also, the bottle has a free-flowing pour spout, so there is nothing to slow the flow of the sauce, so it is easy to accidentally overdo it.

Unfortunately, this is one hot sauce that I CANNOT handle. It is WAY too hot; of course, the Habanero IS the world’s hottest pepper. I tried it once and couldn’t take it, so I gave it to a friend who COULD handle it. Then after awhile, I decided to try it again. Same story. To be fair, I’m giving this 3 stars because my review has nothing to do with the quality of the product.

Outstanding sauce with both good heat level and great taste. Would highly recommend this sauce to anyone. Great on everything. If you like hot sauce you need to give this one a try, you won’t be disappointed.

This is a really good hot sauce, but be aware that it’s definitely on the hot end of store-bought (non-specialty) hot sauces.
It’s got a rich orange color, and not overly thick, but not runny either. To me it starts with a sweet flavor and fruity undertone,and then a searing but not sharp heat kicks in.
It definitely builds in heat, but is not the kind of hot sauce that leaves you in pain for hours (like on “the Hot Ones – LOL)
It definitely seems a little fruity to me, but there’s nothing in the ingredients to account for the flavor profile that I taste. I’ve traditionally been a ‘mainstream sauce’ kind of guy, sticking to mild to medium sauces, but lately my taste has been leaning towards hotter and hotter sauces, and this definitely appeased that desire.
For now, at least, it’s the hottest sauce in my refrigerator! If you want something hotter than normal, but also with some depth to the flavor, this is an easy sauce to recommend!
