Year of the Dog – Thai Chile Pineapple Hot Sauce, 8 OZ

Year of the Dog Thai chile pineapple hot sauce may well be Lucky Dog’s best sauce to date. Pronounced pineapple overtones blend seamlessly with the sublime flavor of red Thai chiles in a surprisingly savory fruit-based hot sauce.

Never one to shy away from complex flavor profiles, Lucky Dog Hot Sauce’s Year of the Dog attempts to redefine what a pineapple hot sauce can be.

Rather than muddle the flavors with competing tropical fruit notes, Year of the Dog singularly features the delicious pineapple, while avoiding the trap of being a “hot pineapple sauce” by using a spectacular balance of sweet & savory notes that emerge or are muted depending on the application.

Deeply layered flavors of toasted onion, roasted garlic, toasted sesame, Aleppo peppers, honey, lime, and hints of Chinese mustard & ginger with subtle rice vinegar blend perfectly to create an amazingly adaptable and uniquely balanced hot sauce that excels in flavor and versatility.

And so you don’t run out as fast, Year of the Dog is exclusively available in our new 8 oz squeeze bottle, which actually holds 8.8 oz of sauce – bonus!

Rarely is a pineapple hot sauce particularly hot, savory or versatile. Year of the Dog combines all 3 characteristics to expand the boundaries of what you’ve come to expect from a pineapple hot sauce, with the bold & satisfying flavors that remain a hallmark of Lucky Dog Hot Sauce.

Scott claims that this is one of his finest sauces yet, let’s see what Matt, Will, and The Machine have to say.
