What you have here is a serious India Pale Ale shacking up and hunkering down with mango and apricots. At the same time! Romantic Chemistry is brewed with an intermingling of mangos, apricots and ginger, and then dry-hopped with three varieties of hops to deliver a tropical fruit aroma and a hop-forward finish. It’s fruity, it’s hoppy, it’s tasty!

UPDATED: OCT 21, 2017 Apple, cider, apricot, and pear. Strong citrus flavor on the front end and mellows into a more grassy finish. Really great.

No chemistry with me... almost orange in color, smell with very little hop (well, it's an IPA though) with apricot. Good bitterness but a nauseous (though subtle) mango flavor. Draft, in their own bar ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Color is beautiful amber. Aroma is of alcohol with hints of apricot and hops. Taste of apricots, hops, with a nice malt backbone. Smooth. Light mouthfeel for an IPA. Very nice.

Aroma is sweet. Taste is an OK balance of citrus and piney light hops. Overall decent, not great.

Generic fruits, stone fruits, apricot, tropical fruits, spices, grain malts. Clear gold, small, creamy, white head. Light sweet. More tropical and stone fruits, mango, sweet grain malts, soft carbonation, medium bodied. Very nice and complex IPA. Keg at Sabbia at La Birreria, Manhattan.

9/22/2017 (12 fl oz bottle): Very floral and fruity aroma, fleshy fruits including ripe apricot, peach, notes of caramelized tropical fruits; deep orange color, slightly cloudy, lasting off-white head; flavor of fresh, ripe fruits including mango, papaya, and peach, lots of floral notes, toasted maltiness, slightly sweet, mild and smooth bitterness; medium body, smooth and creamy mouthfeel; pretty good, quite fruity and hoppy, but not as pungent as expected and I would have liked more ginger and mango.

An IPA by style, but not overly hoppy. Nice apricot flavor, but the remainder of the citrus flavors are subtle. Smooth finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very good beer, the ginger addition is strange but I guess Dogfish wants their beers to be like bouquets. I very much like the apricot taste, it brings a sweet tartness you wouldn't otherwise get. I would definitely roll a six pack of this, but I'm afraid I'd drink it all in one night, very drinkable and tasty. Something about it makes you want a little more... plus the price is extravagant, $15 plus change, I might assume the tax would send it to $16 dollars, which is outrageous for this beer. I would pay $11 for a sixer and no more. I'll buy it in samplers I suppose... but never a sixer.

UPDATED: SEP 3, 2017 Bottle. It poured an amber color with a nice white head and minimal lacing. The aroma is hoppy with notes of tropical fruits - mango and orange. It has a nice bitterness level for a pale ale.

On draft at Dan's Downtown Tavern. The pour is a dark orange with a thin ring of light white head and a couple spots of lace as it falls apart. The aroma is interesting. There is a lot of tea here. This is almost like an Arnold Palmer. I'm not quite sure how to take this. There is a light maltiness, and no hops are present as the malts take over for sure. The flavor is much of the same. This is like drinking an Arnold Palmer with a lighter carbonation. Really tea dominated. The mouth feel is a bit syrupy with a softer carbonation and a lingeringly tea forward and light stone fruit syrup there. This is just a mess from front to back. 5 4 5 4 13
