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. Its fruity, its hoppy, its tasty!

12 oz bottles from Trader Joes in Glen Allen, VA the IPA poured a clear amber color with an off-white head and lacing. Modest aroma of tropical fruits and apricots. The ale has a medium body with average carbonation. Flavor has mango and some ginger as advertised. Nicely balanced ale with a pleasant malt backbone.The ginger becomes more pronounced the more you consume the ale. Bitterness fades early, making this an accessible and easy drinking IPA.

Clear orange, big white head. Smells like peaches. Well, I thought peaches then I read the label and it said it was made with apricots. So I guess I meant apricots. I also get tangerine. Taste is fruity sweet at first, then citrusy bitterness. Some subtle sour notes

Pour on tap, hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of ginger, fruit, sweet apricot into some slight orange, touch of sweet vanilla. Taste was a mix of orange, lemon,apricot into sweet fruits, some ginger, spice into a bit of malt,finishing slightly bitter.

Bottle from Discount. Pours a slightly cloudy copper with a half finger of foam that dissipates immediately. Good lacing as it goes down. Caramel nose with some syrupy canned oranges and apricot. Feels heavy and bit oily on the palate. Sweet with some mango notes as it warms. Dry finish with a long, lingering ginger burn.

Poured from a bottle. Cloudy yellow appearance, decent head, little lacing. Strong fruity aroma from a long distance, not as flavorful on the tongue.

Whats going on with DFH? I mean they went from one of the coolest breweries to seemingly all gimmicks. Its bizarre. 12 ounce bottle. Pours a beautiful copper hue with a large white head. A light floral nose. The flavor is not so good; ginger, toast, some orange, a sort of creamy oily base. It ends very dry like white wine. Sort of somehow a dry perfumy and not too flavorful beer. I mean, this isnt horrible but it isnt very good.

Poured from 12 oz. bottle. Definitely fruity aromas on the nose, especially ripe mangoes. Drinks on the lighter side, like a tame pale ale. For a "fruit beer" its not overtly fruity, just nicely balanced and quaffable.
