Some things are just made for each other. Peanut butter and jelly. The Captain and Tennille. And now, creamsicles and booze. Terrapin Beer Company and Green Flash have joined forces to bring you Tangerine Dreamsicle, a tangerine cream IPA that basically turns your childhood into beer. Tangerine Dreamsicle is brewed with Citra, Amarillo, and Azacca hops, as well as 2-Row Pale, CaraMalt, and Gambrinus Honey malts, making for a 6.5% ABV selection. Sadly, they don't dunk an actual creamsicle into the wort, but it does feature real tangerine peel, so you can tell people you're working on your daily vitamin C dose with every bottle.
