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!

Hazy orange, with a sweet fruity aroma. Taste is the same, with more fruit than malt, and very little bitterness. $3/12oz ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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

This bottled brew from a bottle shop was served at a cool temperature and poured a small sized head of foamy white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a strong bubbly carbonation body semi-hazy orange brown colored body and a good lacing. The mild aroma was floral. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. The ok flavor contained notes of floral and hops. An OK brew just nothing special.

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
