BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Dogfish Head Craft Brewery
Delaware, United States
dogfish.com

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.20%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / 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!

A-dark amber with two fingers worth of cream colored head

S-aroma is of peaches and apricots, citrus, and caramel

T-taste is similar to the smell with a caramel malt base, peaches, apricots, and citrus hops

M-medium body, somewhat light carbonation

Overall while I would have liked to try this when it was fresher, still pretty decent even after a few months

12 oz. bottled on 04/07/17

Pours clear rusted amber orange with a creamy white foam head. Smells like toasty bready caramel malt, some apricot, mango, tropical and stone fruits, grapefruit, orange citrus, floral sweet ginger spice, with earthy herbal grassy pine. Tastes like slightly roasty toasted bready caramel malt, apricots, mango, tropical and stone fruit, some grapefruit, orange citrus, floral sweet spicy ginger, with earthy herbal grassy pine. Feels medium-light bodied, creamy and slick with moderate carbonation. Overall a nice and interesting IPA with apricots, mango and ginger.
