While this sauce is very hot for most people, it is a bottle of lies. Its artificial in its heat as well as its flavour. To me it tasted like chemicals and was very oily. You could tell the heat wasn't from using actual peppers but rather concentrated pepper extract, that's cheating in my opinion.
It is pretty hot, I use a chopstick to get a little bit out. I do not suggest pouring it out because it can get pretty hot. I know there are hotter hot sauces but this one is ideal for me for every day use.
I feel a little bad giving this product 2 Stars because Dave's is such a good brand and Chilly Chile's is such a great vendor. But this sauce is an imposter. Yes, it's brutally hot. Yes, it's tasty once you survive the high. (And I did indeed experience a brief psychedelic splendor from consuming way too much of this hell fire.) But look at the ingredients. It's basically a Habanero sauce artificially enflamed with extract. Ask yourself what you're looking for. If it's Habanero flavor, get a Habanero sauce without extract and enjoy the milder heat. If it's brutal burn you want, get a Reaper sauce and enjoy its extreme heat. If you want the Habanero flavor AND its medium-burn isn't enough for your tongue's poor pain receptors, consider a sauce blending multiple types of peppers, such as a Habanero/Reaper blend made by Torchbearer. But if you, brave traveler, really want a purely Habanero taste with the chance to see through time... actually yes this product is exactly what you're looking for. Also probably good for cooking industrial sized batches of soup or stew. Just read the label and follow its instructions: ONLY USE DILUTED. Or, whatever, go ahead and make the same mistake I did (over and over... and over again) and consume it at full strength. Just make sure to use a utensil to get it out of the bottle... you cannot pour single drops from this sucker since it's so thick. It'll clump out in a grape-sized mistake. You know what? Never mind. 3 Stars, not 2. Will (attempt to) finish the bottle but not re-order.
I find this one is my favorite of the Dave Insanity Sauces. While it is not their hottest, the garlic and lime hint that peeks through the heat makes it a great addition to any Mexican dish.
The sauce has decent heat but nothing crazy. So if your looking for top end heat you may be disappointed. There isn't much for flavour, it pretty bitter
