COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

Slightly hazy golden amber color with a thin sudsy head of offwhite foam. The aroma is faint in apricot and mango with some ginger subtly rounding it out. The taste is very malt forward with only subtle apricot and mango. The ginger comes in a little spicy and accentuates the malt sweetness. Personally the ginger should be left out of this one. Doesn’t add anything better to the beer.

Tasting at Matt’s
Hazy copper color. Some resiny hop aroma and some vegetables. Good body, the malt base is a bit sticky, lightly fruity, lightly sour.
Messy.

12 oz bottle. Big tropical fruit smells. Pours a hazy brown orange with an off-white tight bubble head. Lacing. Very sweet, with body and round late hops. Above average carbonation. Very distinctive and drinkable. Not for every day but a nice different take on an IPA.

Solid IPA with added sweetness. Hop forward yet refreshing. Thick mouth feel. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: AUG 5, 2017 It is smooth like the other Dogfish fruit/herb styles. Personally I am not a huge fan of the style, but this one is pretty ok

Panzuriel (2306) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - AUG 5, 2017
Appearance: Dark copper. Nearly clear. finger of white tiny bubbles. Nose: lightly sweet malt, touch caramel and herbal and floral hops. Slight mango Taste: Despite the label, only a faint hint of mango and citrus. Herbal, floral and a bit of pine hops. Lightly sweet Body: medium to lighter with lively carbonation Parting thoughts: Somehow, I was expecting more fruit with it prominently displayed on the label. Solid IPA none the less.

UPDATED: AUG 20, 2017 It’s actually pretty good. The mango really comes in and gives the beer incredible mouthfeel.

Its a beery morph and ginger soda. Some genuine fruit flavors that are aged. Some syrup in the body that is busy in tune with the flavors that pattern. a caramel like sweetness and some alcohol.

lamas (1642) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 22, 2017
Bottle. Bottled on: 04/20/17. Different label than that in the picture. Pours a clear amber color with a thick beige head. Pineapple, mangoes, apricots, ginger, and some caramel dominate the aroma. Goes down medium-bodied and crisp upfront. The taste starts with some caramel and a touch of wheaty grains. A doughy middle becomes apparent with warmth. Tangy pineapples, mangoes, apricots, and zesty citrus rinds follow. A zing of ginger adds some bite at the very end. Solid.
