The color is named after the fruit Tangerine. The tangerine (Citrus × tangerina) is an orange-coloured citrus fruit. It is a variety of the Mandarin orange (Citrus reticulata). The color is between bright orange and dark yellow. The ink is good visible on the paper. When it is more yellow it often becomes harder to read.
The ink writes smooth and the flow in combination with this pen is good. When an ink does not bleed through a Moleskine with a stub-nib it is a good ink to write with. Drying time in a Moleskine is about 9 seconds with this nib. On Rhodia paper it takes about twice the time. I could not detect feathering in a Moleskine.

"Private Reserve Tangerine Dream
I filled my Pilot Namiki Vanishing Point (stub) with some Private Reserve Tangerine Dream.
It is a great combo with this nib. The ink flows great. In this Moleskine with this stub-nib their's no bleed through or feathering. Drying time is good.
The color is great for all kind of writing. I would not use it for every day writing. But it is great for highlighting and accentuating.
The ink costs about $ 0,17/ml.
The name matches this color great.
The bottle contains 50ml of great ink. The bottle is deep enough to fill even a Montblanc 149 or Pelikan M1000 with huge nibs.

This ink is Moleskine friendly. With this stub-nib Pilot Namiki I had two (out of five) Moleskines with some real tiny dots coming through on the other side of the paper. Because the ink is light colored the tiny bit of bleed through is not much of a deal.
