There’s no way to really measure “hoppiness.” The term can refer to the aroma of a beer or the bitterness delivered by the specific hops used early in the boil. You can look at IBUs (International Bittering Units) for a general idea of hop bitterness, but that doesn’t really tell the whole story. We decided to sniff and sample our way through plenty of hopped-up monsters to give you 7 your palate will both love and fear.

Pappy-Van-Winkle-Hot-Sauce

Pappy Van Winkle is the name in bourbon. Bottles have sent drinkers on wild goose chases and left others with empty bank accounts. While we can’t help you procure any of that elusive elixir, we can bring a little Pappy into your life in another way. Pappy Van Winkle Hot Sauce is aged in actual Pappy Van Winkle bourbon barrels. The distillery teamed with friends at Midland Ghost to make this flavorful hot sauce, which features the latter’s prized first generation Ghost Peppers. After the sauce was made, it was left to age in barrels that once held Pappy. That means you have a sauce that’s rich, oaky, and full of flavorful heat. Use it on meats, veggies, or, if you’re a special brand of crazy, just drink it straight from the bottle. It’s that good.
