22 oz bottle. Pours a hazy golden orange and topped by a thick layer of off white foam that settles in quickly to a thin film and leaving streaks of lace around the glass. The aroma shows notes of juicy orange and tangerine, citrus hops, vanilla cream, and a pale malt base. The flavor follows with the tangerine and vanilla cream sweetness up front along with some pale malts while the citrus hops add a touch of bitterness on the back end. Medium bodied, slick and a touch creamy on the mouthfeel with balanced carbonation that leads to a bitter sweet finish. Another interesting concept that sounds delicious but just comes up a bit short. Not sure the IPA base worked all that well here. Still glad I tried it though.

Bomber. Somewhat hazy light orange pour with a small soapy white head. Aroma isnt over the top, but it does have some nice tangerine/orange zest to it. Smells good. Taste is as-advertised - tangerine and a dreamsicle. So tasty. Im digging this.

Terrapin / Green Flash Tangerine Dreamsicle is a fruity twist on an IPA. Orange aroma rising from a orange-amber pour with a nice tight head. Tangerine flavor is not too over-powering but well balanced with the hop notes and little creaminess. Tangerine Dreamsicle is a refreshing IPA that leans away from the traditional just enough.

Bottle. Light orange color. Aroma is spiced orange zest. The taste is tangerine at first with a creamsicle finish and a slight lemonade note. An interesting subtle twist on an ipa. Great concept and execution. --- Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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

slowrunner77 (11048) - 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
