COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
East meets West with the coolest collaboration brew in recent history. Terrapin and Green Flash have teamed up to make a tangerine cream IPA that will tickle your inner child while it satisfies one of life’s guilty pleasures. Perfect served on a hot day off the back of a musical truck...best if you had to chase it down a block or two first.

Sampled at RBSG. From notes. Loads of peach and tangerine. Distinct dreamsicle cream in here too.

slowrunner77 (6083) - Reno, Nevada, USA - NOV 29, 2014
Cool concept that they pulled of pretty well. Mostly a (you guessed it) tangerine forward IPA. More than moderately fruity and moderately bitter. Slight creaminess from the malt in the body. Not a standout, but pretty nice.

From a bottle. Medium copper in color. Smells a bit fruity, but has a minty aftertaste. No orange what-so-ever. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

had once before, i think .. . deep orange .. medium head, solid lacing .. . lots if pine and orange .. . medium bitterness . . easy finish and quite smooth, mild finish .. . the name is a bit deceiving, but a nice brew .. . .
I’m not saying I believe in ghosts I’m just saying someone ate the rest of my fucking chips

Beerman6686 (4672) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 24, 2014
This poured a cloudy orange color with a white head. Aroma was of light oranges, caramel and stale hips. Flavor tasted like an old spa with only slight sign of orange and cream. Disappointing.

SpringsLicker (3169) - Tennessee, USA - SEP 13, 2014
Pours slightly hazy orange with a chunky, sticky of-white head. Light floral hop aroma. The flavor is dry hop bitterness with just enough malt support. No citrus or tropical fruit flavors going on in this bottle. Ok but nothing special here- good average IPA.

22 ounce bottle - $7.99 at Bullock’s in Marietta, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a lightly hazed, appropriately orange-hued body with a medium-small, tightly frothed, off-white head. Light powdery lacing on the way down.

Smell: With the citrusy, tangerine-infused and creamyish qualities, the beer adequately mimics its namesake treat.

Taste: Lightly honeyish pale malts with a restrained sweetness and a quick infusion of tropical tangerine peel bolstering the citrusy hops. Medium-plus bitterness midway. The slow-moving lactose creaminess saunters on in, helping to somewhat soften, if just a bit, the potent hop character. Slight herbal, resinous pine hints. A Dreamsicle flavor culminates on the swallow, with some tangerine lingering, albeit briefly, on the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Some near-creaminess is cut by the tight carbonation.

Overall: Terrapin/Gr. Flash didn’t distance themselves too far from the IPA elements when displaying this unique creation. Personally, I would’ve preferred it a bit sweeter, a bit richer, and more like the frosty treat, as the bitter hops keep whacking the Dreamsicle element in the back of the knees.

BadAprilia1000 (284) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 2, 2014
Pours a very nice orange color. Aroma is not as big as I had hoped. Subtle notes of tangerine, orange, grass, hay, with a slight bit of grapefruit. Taste is nice. It does taste like a creamsicle with a slight bit of citrus and a slight bitterness from the hops and some orange/tangerine peel. Overall a decent beer.

Big bottle. Golden color. Strong citrus aromas from the hops. Orange notes. Light sweetness. Medium light bitterness. Citrus and tropical notes in taste. Pretty good stuff.

Draft. This one tastes and smells like an orange creamsicle. Interesting, but very sweet.
