I could guess a few things... Tapioca syrup can brown easily if the dextrose equivalence is high... is that what's called for in the recipe? Maybe try another recipe that only uses sugar? http://www.foodnetwork...

The same thing happened to me when I was making sugar "sea glass" to decorate a wedding shower cake. It had a brown tinge even with the blue food coloring, and I tried multiple times:( My recipe was sugar only, so Id like the answer to this as well.
