Taste test: These chips are quite hot.
It's a delayed heat — you don't notice it at first, but it kicks in after a couple of seconds and packs quite a punch. The heat grows slightly stronger as you continue to chew, and then it lingers for quite a while. I would definitely recommend having a cold beverage handy when you try these. The chips are (for the most part) narrow-rippled chips, which distinguishes them from Boyer's non-"Extra Hot" version of these, which had wide ripples. (However, even in this bag there were a few wider-rippled chips.)
Smell test: Good, strong barbecue chips smell, though not really a hot smell.
From the package: “Red Hot” ... “Extra Hot” ... ingredients include Beer Seasoning, Vegetable Protein Spices, Vegetable Powdered Hops and Smoked Flavor ... “Extra Hot Cayenne Powder Added for Extra Hot Chips”
