There's a local "wrap" bistro where I often get my lunch, and they offer a wide selection of hot sauces for condiments. I always pick out Frank's RedHot Original because it's the hottest of the bunch. By "hot" I'm talking on a relative scale, it's a typical cayenne sauce, powerful enough to terrify civilians, but nothing intimidating for true soldiers. Nevertheless, I really enjoy its tangy flavor, it adds some extra dimensions of taste that nicely complement the heat (and compensate for its middle-row "spice" rating). It some ways it reminds me of the Trappey's Red Devil cayenne sauce, though the flavor is more subtle and richer. PS: If you want "extra hot" hot sauce blogging, you have to check out Hot Sauce Blog.
