It's pretty good, but hot enough that your body needs some time to recover from consuming it. I like how the flavor is subtle and doesn't ruin the taste of what ever you put on it.

That's some good flavor. There's another similar brand that smokes the peppers beforehand and you really get more flavor.

That's my test as to whether or not a "super" hot sauce is good: Does it evoke flavor that mixes well with the searing heat? So far, I've not found anything that beats homegrown peppers dried and blended into a powder. Last season it was Naga Viper, this year I got some decent Ghosts, enough to fill about 1/3 of a salt shaker.

If I just want circus-level heat, I go with the Satan's Blood, which I bet has already been mentioned in this thread, 800,000 scovilles

I try to keep a bunch of different kinds around too, but my neck of soCal is surprisingly barren of variety in the hot sauce aisle, and far too many of the minor brands around here are vague jalapeno-based fluids that are often bitter, devoid of character, and genuinely do suck.

Amazon. I hear there's a specialty shop in Los Angeles proper, too. IT's where my friends go to get me gifts for events and stuff.
