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!

On draft at Dogfish Head in Rehoboth Beach, DE. Clear, bright orange / copper body with an inch of white collar. Juicy citrus and apricot atop a malty backbone. Quaffable and easy drinking. Nicely done.

Orange/copper with an off white head. Hint of fruit on the aroma. Really nice citrus hop flavors and solid caramel and biscuit malt background. A great IPA but hard for me to pick out the mango or apricot.

Poured from 12 oz bottle into nonic glass. A 1 white head drops quickly with mild lacing. Color is clear copper with moderate streaming carbonation. Aroma of apricot and mango plus bread dough and hops. Mouthfeel is medium and finishes with a drying astringency. Flavor echoes the aroma with the sweet fruit flavors and white bread dough balanced with a nice hop bitterness.

Flavor is more earthy than fruity. I cant say I was impressed by this beer. Disapointed hop bite but very boring one dimensional otherwise.

Im rebelling against Sam Calagione and rating this beer. It has a mango, ginger and apricot aroma. A mildly sweet taste with smooth finish. . Orange and amber body and foamy white head that sticks around. Bold bodied with a slick mouth feel. Despite Sam Calagione being a whiner Id say this beers a winner.

From a bottle poured an amber color with a good amount of head. Light happy fruity flavor with a quick finish.

355ml bottle @ Matts(Acquire from Elizabeth Station). Pours a clear reddish copper colour with a thin white head. Nose is mildly sweet and malty. Flavour is somewhat weird, the mix of bitterness and the sweet something is not mixing well. There is also a somewhat alcoholic influence in the flavour that is detracting from the enjoyment.

Ferris (15001) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 15, 2017
Bottle - Regardless of the dick move by the owner/brewer I am rating it. F*ck the man, but now they are the man. Light sweet fruity notes. Clear gold with a small beige head. Caramel sweetness and light fruity notes. Meh.

mcberko (17178) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 15, 2017
12 oz. bottle, pours a clear copper with a small white head. Aroma is very earthy and muddled, with some pith, not much else. Flavour is along the same lines, with lots of muddled earthy notes and some pith. Muddled and just overall uninspiring. Lame.

oobawa (1301) - Tennessee, USA - JUN 14, 2017
Not the biggest fan of Dogfishs varied fruit-n-adjunct IPAs, mainly because their IPA-ness seems to get lost amid all the fruity gimmickry. Romantic Chemistry does indeed feature moderate mango and apricot notes, plus the slightest hint of ginger in the fade, yet the hop loveliness gets overshadowed by the showy additions. More like a hop-forward amber fruit beer than an IPA, to be honest. Floral bitterness on the back end doesnt help, adding a saccharine finish to the modest sweetness. The whole pint seems kind of a mess. Pass.
