So I’m a guy who loves his hot sauce, and this is definitely one of the very best I’ve had. I didn’t realize you could make such a delicious hot sauce with with so few ingredients, some of them being peaches, carrots, and honey, which makes for a delicious sweetness that doesn’t overpower the spice too much. This sauce is obviously made with love, and it goes with almost everything.

Tried the Mild and Medium for regular and smoked. They do not disappoint, best hot sauce in Iowa. I’m getting more!

10/10 I love this sauce. It so full of flavor and as the heat increases the flavor never gets lost. The heat is clean, there is no vinegar aftertaste, and as I said the flavor comes through. You can’t go wrong, just get you a set. You will come back for more.

It’s been a real treat exploring the smoked version of the ghost pepper sauce. I loved the original and am loving the smoked. The smoke is not overwhelming making room for all the flavors to stand proud on my rice and beans!!! (:

I bought this because I haven’t seen many serrano pepper hot sauces. It’s good stuff. I’m impressed because with the mild I could taste all the ingredients, nothing was so strong that it overpowered everything else and they were all delicious flavors. It’s a little sweeter than I’m used to but not so much that it’s off putting. I will definitely buy more when I run out.

Very delicious! Has just a little heat, and has added excellent flavor to everything I’ve put it on. The only problem is I want to use it in the same quantity I’d use ketchup (did this with some french fries), so I’m going to run out of it fast!

Might be my favorite hot sauce. The flavors of the peppers shine brilliantly and aren’t overshadowed by a pronounced rolling, lingering burn. This is not “Iowa Hot”, this has good heat. In comparison to the “Smoked HOT”, the smoked X-Hot only has slightly more noticeable heat but comes with a richer pepper flavor. I’ve been sipping on spoonfuls while writing this, it’s that flavorful on its own. I’m excited for the Double-X. Now I gotta go make myself a margarita.

I still need to try the Mild and Medium flavors from my three pack, but I think Hot is being added to my list of everyday go to sauces. Ansel doesn’t add capsaicin extract to his products so while the Hot flavor has ghost peppers as its source of heat it doesn’t assault your face like it’s trying to be a competitor in the bear spray market. Hot is a sweet tasting sauce that features the ghost pepper’s fruitiness and uses its spiciness in harmony with the flavor. The heat isn’t right there in front but more a slow after burn on the tongue.
